    1. Audi RS 5 Cabriolet Mule Spied in Germany



      Okay, so the RS 5 Cabriolet isn't exactly Audi's best kept secret. We've been seeing RS 5 chinned cabriolets parked at the Audi Forum Ingolstadt parking garage before and then just last month several CGIs of Audi's upcoming musclebound droptop surfaced on the web following the company's patent filing.

      So even though it's not entirely new, when a likely example ...
    2. Spied: Q3 2.5 TFSI Caught Testing at Nurburgring



      Okay, outwardly this Audi Q3 might not look particularly special. Sure, it's badged and kitted as an S-line and those B7 RS 4-design wheels painted black in the centers is interesting... but were you just see a photo of this car you might not be overly interested. Take a closer look though and things change just a bit.

      First, our spy photographer sources shot this particular Audi Q3 at ...
    3. Spied: Audi A6 allroad Test Mule



      Also out testing this week is what appears to be the next-generation A6 allroad. The mule is so heavily camouflaged unlike the shot of the one testing in South America several weeks ago, one might have mistaken it for an A6... but my camouflage an A6 Avant when that's already been seen? The answer of course is that this is an allroad. We've compared these new ...
    4. Spied: Audi RS 4 Avant Testing Again at Nurburgring



      The new Audi RS 4 Avant has returned to the Nurburgring for testing and spy photographers who frequent the 'Green Hell' have nabbed plenty of shots. Unlike previous RS 4 mules in spy photos we've featured here, this latest RS 4 tester appears to boast the upcoming facelift bodywork planned for the A4 range such as A6 and now A5 inspired headlights, ...
    5. Possible Audi Q5 S Test Mule Spotted Testing in the Alps



      Check out this test mule spied testing in the Alps. Outwardly, there's not much oddball about the car. Other than a low ride height and what looks like some aluminum foil stuck to the nose, you wouldn't think much of it. Around back though (more pics after the jump), there's a quad exhaust. This is definitely a mule, and no it's not a Cajun as confirmed by those Ingolstadt plates.
      ...
    6. Next-Generation Audi S3 Caught Hot-Weather Testing



      Another next-gen A3-based mule has been spotted hot-weather testing in Death Valley this week and a set of photos of the car has been published over on WorldCarFans. That it's a next-gen A3 3-door body is obvious, but further deduction of its S3 configuration is defined by the car's fascia (very close to A6 S-line and presumably S6), as well as quad exhausts. WorldCarFans says the engine will be a 276 ...
    7. First Audi Q6 Test Mule Sports Modified Q5 bodywork



      An interesting set of new Audi spy photos came across our virtual desktop this morning, showing what outwardly may look like a Q5 but is most likely a Q6 drivetrain prototype.

      Why Q6? Whatever it is, this crossover appears to be both longer and wider than the Q5. Note the extension in wheelbase added in between the front and rear doors in addition to fender arch extensions from the Audi ...
    8. Spied: Audi A6 allroad Test Mule Also in Argentina



      We've got one more photo from this week's score of test mules spied running through their paces in Argentina this week. One of the cars in the convoy we originally reported about on Monday was definitely an A6 Avant. This rear shot of that car provided to us by our spy photographer sources reveals it's not just an A6 Avant either but likely one with allroad treatment. ...
    9. More Argentinean Spy Photos of Next Audi A3 3-Door Surface



      One day after those grainy shots of an Audi test mule caravan in Argentina surfaced, even more detailed shots of the upcoming 3-door A3 have surfaced. Check out this super clear 3/4 and others like it seemingly shot as the test group stopped at the hotel Selva Montana near San Lorenzo. And even though the car is in far-away Argentina, it still wears its Ingolstadt plates.

      Check out more shots after the jump. ...
    10. Spied: Audi A3 3-Door Cold-Weather Testing



      Check out this grainy photo published by Autoblog Argentina (autoblog.com.ar). What you see here, along with other shots of a facelifted Q5, A4 Avant and more are pretty much undisguised test mules from Audi, driving in caravan and doing cold weather testing in the middle of the northern hemisphere's summer by testing in a rather untraditional location. We've come to expect spy photos of the latest Audis from locales like South Africa, ...
