    1. 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 ...
    2. S7? RS 7? Interesting A7-Bodied Test Mule Spotted in Ingolstadt



      Here's a very interesting test mule spotted on the roadst of Germany. The spy shots blur the IN license plates of an Ingolstadt-registered mule, but we recognize that stretch of road adjacent to Audi's Ingolstadt factory and it's not far from the development facility at Audi's Ingolstadt HQ. Further, the car wears an interesting new chin spoiler that's not terribly different from RS 4 mules that have been spied ...
    3. "S4 Avant" Test Mule May Have Been RS 4 Says Our Forum and They're Probably Right



      Remember that test mule we ran just yesterday, the one we thought might be an S4 Avant? We cross-posted that story to our B8 S4 forum and may have been quickly schooled by a few of our readers. And their theories were solid, solid enough for us to take a second look and likely agree with them.

      The spy photographers ...
    4. Video: Querkraftfrei Audi A5 Featured on YouTube by Autobild



      Just a few minutes ago we published a feature about the Querkraftfrei Audi A5 prototype. German car magazine Autobild recently had a chance to drive and test the car and have published a webisode on the car and its technology over on YouTube. Watch it and you'll see how the car works, including the net effect on liquid (orange juice) in a glass held in the cupholder. Thank-you ...
    5. Another Set of B8 RS 4 Photos on quattroholic Offer More Angles of View



      As is common with a new test mule, there've been quite a few news outlets offering different sets of shots of the car. In the case of yesterday's B8 RS 4 Avant, this has certainly been the case. We reported on a set from MotorAuthority last night and ran our own set early this morning. Now quattroholic.com has published a new set we haven't yet seen offering even ...
    6. Near-Production Audi S6 Turns up at German Port



      Nurburgring? Check. Swedish frigid climate? Check. Death Valley? Check. German port? Usually not. Well, you have to figure with test mules that they have to ship them somehow right? Take this car, what is believed to be a near production S6 test mule. A photo of the car ws nabbed as it was prepping to be shipped to Gothenburg, Sweden.

      From the front, as seen above, the ...
    7. Audi RS 4 Avant Mule Appears for First Time



      We've found what we believe to be the first set of spy photos of the upcoming RS 4 Avant posted over at MotorAuthority. Make sure to see plenty more angles of the car after the jump. MA notes the car is essentially A4 bodied with a unique RS-like chin spoiler, RS 5 wheels and brakes and suggests the car will be a high-hp version of the 3.0T FSI supercharged engine that should hit market ...
    8. Audi A5 e-tron Driven by AutoExpress



      Holy exclusive! Its hard to come up with a virtually exclusive story in the auto industry but AutoExpress has managed it with a review of the Audi A5 e-tron (for now at least ). To create this latest e-tron prototype Audi took an A5 2.0T and ditched the drive shaft, installing an electric motor at the rear axle and filled the transmission tunnel with lithium ion batteries. ...
    9. Audi S6 Spy Photos over at WorldCarFans



      A test mule of the Audi S6 was spotted this week in Germany (looks like Ingolstadt) and a large set of photos of the car have been published over on WorldCarFans. From the outside this car looks largely like a blacked out A6 S-line, though it wears last-generation S-car wheels and, more importantly, quad exhausts.

      As most readers on here probably already know, the new S6 will be powered by ...
    10. Spied: Audi Q3 Test Mules Hit the Road



      The Audi Q3 moves ever close to production with market availability expected (in Europe at least) by the end of the year. Knowing that car is so soon in the shoot, we've not been surprised over the last few weeks to see disguised test mules out and about testing.

      We've just stumbled across a set of shots published by our friends Audiblog.nl that show the car from multiple angles. We're not positive, ...
