Brit automotive website AutoExpress has published a new set of stills that depict the RS 6 Avant with much more clarity thanks to a plethora of angles. Check out all of the shots AutoExpress after the jump.

    2. 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 ...
    3. 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 ...
    4. 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 ...
    5. 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 ...
    6. B8 Audi RS 4 Dead But C7 RS 6 Coming Says Car & Driver German Correspondent Jens Meiners



      There are a couple of German journalists who've become quite prolific thanks to their usually accurate early reads on moves by the German manufacturers. We usually plug Georg Kacher as the Grand Poobah of that particular Water Buffalo club and C&D's Jens Meiners is definitely an honorary member. So when Jens filed a story over on caranddriver.com this ...
    7. Audi RS 7 Renderings from Acerbus



      You may remember the name Acerbus from the group of D4 S8 renders we shared on this blog several months ago. The photoshop artist grabbed our attention through consistent application of the latest S-car design cues to the new A8, creating shots of the car that we suspect will prove quite accurate once the S8 debuts. This week we've stumbled across a new collection from Acerbus where he applies the same attention to detail the renderings ...
