    1. Autobild Details Audi A4 Including Several Renders



      German auto magazine Autobild has published an intel story on the upcoming B9 A4 that includes several obvious renders. Set to follow the 2012 B8 facelift to market by 2014, the B9 A4 will be all-new and groundbreaking for Audi as it will be one of the first implementations of the much-anticipated multi-material space frame configuration known internally as MLB-evo.

    2. Kacher's German Intel Via Autobild: R5, R5 Sportback, A9 and More



      We've spoken enough good about Georg Kacher and his authority on far-reaching intel to perhaps look like a bunch of fanboys of the German/Anglo motor journalist. Fact is, Kacher's got contacts at the highest levels in the board of Audi and other German manufacturers so he usually knows what's what. And even though it may be so far out that it's subject to change, ...
    3. 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.

    5. AutoBild Theorizes on Next-Gen A4, Including Renders from Larson



      Our buddies over at GermancarBlog turned us on to a story run this week from Autobild highlighting rumors about the next-gen Audi A4 (B9?). The story is accompanied by renders created by our firend and fellow Audi enthusiast Larson - a CGIer that's known for creating shots while giving a lot of thought to known directions in design.

      The Autobild piece suggest the new A4 will drop ...
    6. AutoBild's Most Childish Comparison: Auto Union Silver Arrow vs. Rat Rod



      It's a PR nuisance: major magazine rings up the communications office looking to compare the latest, greatest offering with something else. Unless you win and win against something brag-worthy it's not really worth it. Given that, we wonder how Audi PR bosses viewed the pitch from Autobild to let a couple of six year olds pit their 1:2 scale motorized Auto Union Silburpfeil against a homemade rat rod of like scale.
