    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 S6 Avant Test Mule Brazenly Cruises European Roads



      When last we featured S6 Avant test mule photos on Fourtitude, that particular car wore a zigzag disguise that didn't quite show off the final product. However, with the A6 Avant now fully revealed and an S-car variant likely weeks away from debuting (we're guessing Frankfurt), engineers driving quad-tipped S6 mules like this black Avant don't seem too worried ...
    4. US-Spec Audi S6 Test Mule Spied, Pics at Car & Driver



      It's not that S6 mules haven't been seen before. They have. Still, one spotted on US soil in US trim is another matter entirely. Looking much like an A6 S-line save for the quad tailpipes, we're guessing this navy blue mule didn't even stick out much in traffic. After all, dealers are receiving their demo A6s already. Fortunatley, photographer Jeremy Kupfer was eagle eyed and ...
    5. 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, ...
    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 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 ...
    8. Leaked ETKA Printouts Reveal 4.0T FSI Power Levels for Audi S6, S7, S8 and A8 4.0T



      Check out these reported ETKA printouts that have begun floating around the web. Darkop just posted a link to these in our post earlier today about the S7. We knew a version of the 4.0T was coming for the A8, S8, S6, S7, RS 7 and RS 6 but these details really confirm more about time in market and also horsepower.

      If this accurate, then we're reading this that the horsepower for the A8 fitment ...
    9. Audi S6 Renders Surface on AutoLifestyle.NL



      We've just spotted a pair (front above, rear after the link) over on AutoLifestyle.nl. The shots appear to take S-line imagery from the A6's Italian press launch and sticks to the basics of converting the car to an S6 based on known styling changes employed on the most recently updated TT S-line and TTS. The formula is simple, adding ...
    10. Rumor Alert: New 4.0T Details from AutoCar by Way of Bentley



      We first heard about the upcoming 4.0T FSI several years ago from a highly-placed source as a likely candidate for future S8, S6, S7 and even RS variants as Audi downsizes out of V10s. We've even written about it several times ( HERE , HERE , HERE , and HERE ). Bentley even confirmed their own intent to use the motor in their Paris press release about the ...
