    1. Just in Time for iPad 4G, Audi Shows off New iPad-Based Entertainment System for A6 and A7 at Geneva Motor Show



      There was so much new on the Audi stand this week at the 2012 Geneva Motor Show in Switzerland that we almost forgot about this particular piece of news. Then we got back from dinner (Geneva Mean Time) and saw news from the States about the iPad 4G announcement and this bumped up to our top story.

      This new system was fitted to the new Audi A6 allroad, ...
    2. B8 Audi RS 4 Project Could Be Dead Says Car & Driver Insider



      Car & Driver's resident German insider Jens Meiners has published his monthly report from the continent and we're concerned about one of his assertions. If Meiners' assertion is correct, the new B8 RS 4 program has been killed in the wake of Audi's decision to build a next-generation RS 6. It's assumed the RS 6 will be powered by a more potent ...
    3. Photo Gallery: Audi at the 2011 Los Angeles Auto Show



      Last week marked press days for the 2011 Los Angeles Auto Show, which also meant several North American reveals for Audi. Among the stars of the Audi stand were the R8 GT Spyder, the S8, S7 and S6. Also on display, though more conceptual in nature, were the Audi e-tron Spyder and also an A3 with experimental e-tron drivetrain.

      Check out more photos of each, as well as ...
    4. Audi Driver: Napster Creator, Former Facebook Pres Sean Parker



      According to a recent blog post by Forbes Magazine, Napster creator and former Facebook president Sean Parker drives an Audi. That Justin Timberlake, the actor/musician who played Parker in the movie 'Facebook' has had his own ties with Audi is likely a coincidence, but the real life Parker rolls in a V10 Audi ...
    5. Audi S6 Comes Further into Focus with New Marketing Shot + 4.0 TFSI Audio Note Release



      Following yesterday's reveal of photos and details about the new Audi S6 and S6 Avant, we've found a few more photos and information about the car that we wanted to share. Below are a few of the new photos revealing details we hadn't noticed before with a quick description of what we see below each. All of the shots found thus far have been added to our photo gallery linked at the bottom ...
    6. 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, ...
    7. 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 ...
    8. Latest Rounds of S6 Spy Photos Reveal Interior, New Wheel Design, Avant and More



      We've stumbled across several new sets of Audi S6 photos (thanks Hans and Scott) revealing more production detail work of the upcoming 4.0T-powered S-car due out soon. Between the two collections and corresponding stories, we can clearly see a new wheel design, the S6-spec carbon fiber interior trim and the first Avant mule sporting quad exhausts.

      First is a set found over on AutoWeek.nl. All of the cars in ...
    9. 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 ...
    10. 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, ...
