    1. Latest Audi Q5 Spy Photos Reveal Most Undisguised Look Yet



      We've got a new set of Q5 spy photos from our spy photographer sources and these latest shots reveal new details. What you see here is what appears to be a non S-line version with very little disguise. Look closely and you can clearly see the hexagonal grille with no fake framing and what appears to also be the new lighting clusters with solid LED style housings.

    2. Supposed Audi R8 e-tron Interior Spy Photo Surfaces. Could Reveal R8 Facelift Interior.



      Two photos (one above, one via the link below) surfaced this week of what is purported to be the interior of the R8 e-tron. If that is the case (and we're guessing it is), then this begs the question of how much of these changes will also be seen in the new and facelifted audi R8 when it debuts likely at the Paris Motor Show in September.

      What Do We See?
      The most obvious change here is a much bigger ...
    3. Facelifted R8 Teased in New Video from Audi



      Audi tv has released a new video celebrating five years of production of the R8. Most of the video is footage of Audi's mid-engine supercar in various guises (coupe, Spyder, 4.2, 5.2, GT), though the very end of the video gets even more interesting as a shadowy image reveals the facelifted R8 due later this year. Not much can be gleaned from the pic (seen above), but it appears the R8 has a fixed rear wing and smaller grille inlets ...
    4. Spied (Again): Facelifted Audi Q5 S-line



      Spy photographers working in the northern test areas of Sweden have again spied the facelifted Q5. Just as the previously spotted black US-spec car spied a few weeks ago, this white European model shows some basic disguise around the grille corners and older headlight/taillight clusters but this is undeniably a facelift with A6-inspired S-line bumper trim.

      How do we know ...
    5. On Location: Sneak Peek of All-New Audi A4 Avant S-line Today at Audi Forum Ingolstadt



      We were on location at the Audi Forum Ingolstadt today for an event planned around a production milestone for Audi and namely the 10 millionth B-segment car to roll off the assembly line. The main event as planned was to focus on the production history, with a chance to view and drive examples of B-segment Audis past. We'll have more coverage of ...
    6. Audi A4 Facelift Intel Subtly Slipped Into Auto Motor und Sport News Story



      Our previous blog post about the A3's planned Geneva launch sighted an Auto Motor und Sport intel story relayed in English via Automobile. Based on intel gleaned from a conversation with Stefan Sielaff, the story casually mentioned some great detail about the upcoming facelifted Audi A4 in the very last paragraph. Subtly slipped into ...
    7. Spied: Facelifted Audi A4 allroad



      The latest Audi test mule spy photographers have zeroed in is the upcoming facelift application to the A4 allroad. Consistent with other updates we've seen on previous B8 product improvement mules, namely the RS 4 Avant, these shots show allroad specific details including a wheel design we've not yet seen before.

      Inside ...
    8. Audi R8 Facelift Image Update: Matrix Beam Light Concept by Audi Designer Christoph Haussinger



      After publishing our image of what looked to be a facelift R8 nose found in the Audi Encounter Technology Magazine (p.93 if you download it) , eagle eyed reader and forum member "R5T" posted an update and a clue as to how to interpret the photo. As it turns out, this appears to be a design buck made at some point to further the Matrix Beam Light Concept by designer Christoph Haussinger from the Technische Universitat ...
    9. Next Audi R8 Facelift Exposed in Unofficially Official Photo?



      Today we've stumbled across this photo released by Audi in some seemingly unrelated materials... perhaps inadvertently, but then again Audi never does things inadvertently. Pardon the pixelation, but we blew it up and pulled some shadows out of that grille to get a better view.

      Meant to show off Audi's LED design prowess, we're 99% certain the design buck shown in the shot also reveals next year's planned ...
    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, ...
