    1. Another Audi RS 7 Spy Mule Surfaces, This Time in USA and Under Hood Photos Included



      Photos surfaced earlier today on Quattroworld of what appears to be an RS 7 test mule shot near Las Vegas. On the surface, this matte black A7 tester features a larger front fascia that, while not far from the chin of the freshly facelifted S5, is both larger and more animated. Taking the image and blowing up the front fascia section (above) reveals a chin identical to the gloss black test mule spied testing in Spain in late ...
    2. Audi S8 Test Mule Spied in Alps with Virtually No Disguise



      It's not hard to guess that the latest test mule from Ingolstadt is a very thinly disguised prototype of the upcoming S8. Unlike other S6 and S7 mules that can get by with S-line garb and quad exhausts, the A8 has no S-line which makes the new treatment on the chin that much more obvious. At the rear, the usual tell-tale quad exhausts further confirm the car's ...
    3. Audi A4 Avant Facelift Test Mule Spied



      Some blurry shots of a facelifted Audi A4 Avant have surfaced revealing some of the expected facelift changes due later this year and due to go on sale for the 2013 model year. Most of the changes are expected to make the B8 consistent with the latest A6, including general shape of the headlights, hexagonal taillights and more.

      When it comes to Avant, things are expected ...
    4. Audi RS 7 Test Mule Spotted Hot Weather Testing



      Check out these spy photos that came in from our sources this morning. The photographer labeled it as an S7 with a new bumper as S7 test mules have been regular fixtures in testing locales over the last few weeks. Even still, we're pretty sure this is an RS 7 due to that snarling maul.

      Other than the chin, the car looks as if it could be an S7 spec. The otherwise S-line ...
    5. Spied: Could this Brawny R8 Test Mule Indicate New ultra GT Offering?



      We're not sure what to make of this R8 GT-based test mule spotted at the Nurburgring yesterday. Clearly the car is a factory mule and clearly it's been upgraded. Here's a quick rundown of the changes we spot.

      *Bigger racing-style front chin spoiler
      *Front and rear fender flaps indicating a likely wider track
      *Small Gurney flaps on rear to each side of spoiler ...
    6. More A5/S5 Facelift Spy Photos, This Time as a Coupe



      We've seen Sportbacks, we've seen Cabriolets, and now we've seen a coupe test mule of the upcoming A5/S5 facelift. Night shots like some of the others we've seen recently, some of the new character lines are still easily seen despite some effort to disguise on the part of Audi. Most notably in the shot above, check out the A6-style headlight shape that should change the look of the A6 considerably.

    7. Spied: Audi S6 Avant Test Mule Spotted



      Audi engineeers and spy photographers alike have had a very busy day today. We've just received our third set of photos of the day and this time around the focus is the upcoming S6 Avant following sets of the R8 GT Spyder and S1 3-door

      Those who read this site closely already know that the A6 Avant will be revealed tomorrow at 8PM CEST, ...
    8. New Audi S1 Renders and Spy Photos Reveal Upcoming Smallest S-car



      It's a little known fact that the Audi S1 was supposed to be revealed nearly a year ago at the Paris Auto show. Paris organizers even listed the car as a headliner on the show website for a while but for some reason not shared wtih us, sources at Audi AG tell us the car was pulled from the mix. Several months later though in January, we had a chance to test drive a prototype A1 1.4 ...
    9. Possible Audi R8 GT Spyder Test Mule Spotted at Neckarsulm Factory



      Spy photographers captured this interesting looking R8 tester exiting Audi's Neckarsulm facility this morning. What otherwise might appear as a run-of-the-mill Sepang Blue R8 Spyder is likely an early production mule of the upcoming R8 GT Spyder.

      The most obvious change is the GT's large carbon fiber wing spoiler affixed to the rear deck. A closer look also reveals the red ...
    10. More S7 Test Mules Spied in Spain



      The guys over at quattroholic and their mediterranean spy photographer contacts have nabbed another Audi mule testing in Spain. This time around the car appears to be an S7. The car sports HN license plate (HN standing for Heilbronn, the same that's on all of Audi's Heilbronn-based test cars) and could indicate it's a quattro GmbH mule (thus RS 7), but our money ...
