    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. Audi Spoofs Twilight, Hints at Vampire Themed Super Bowl Commercial in Video Teaser



      Audi began its Super Bowl lead up back on Jan 17 when it confirmed that the LED lighting of the new S7 would be the focus of its 2012 Super Bowl Ad. One photo, released with some press copy, depicted the S7 driving through the woods at night. Then, just today, a new video teaser revealed by Audi on YouTube reveals even more of the plot and one that seems to spoof the popular 'Twilight' movie series just a bit.

      ...
    3. Photo Gallery: Audi at the 2011 Los Angeles Auto Show

Among the stars of the Audi stand were the R8 GT Spyder, the S8, S7 and S6.

    4. On Location: 4 Days at the Audi Forum Ingolstadt (Part 4), Including the Audi RS 5 Cabriolet!



      Thus far this week, we've posted galleries from three recent visits to the Audi Forum Ingolstadt on October 18 , October 20 and October 21 . Hitting the same place in just such a short amount of time, we'd expected to begin to see the same old same old... and were quite surprised when we were wrong. Our fourth and final visit (for now), came about a week later ...
    5. New Photos of Just-Revealed Audi S7 Reveal Even More Detail + Audio of 4.0 TFSI



      Following yesterday's reveal of photos and details about the first-ever Audi S7 , we've dug up 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.

    6. In Case You Missed It: Bullet Points from Johan de Nysschen Visit to Fourtitude Forums



      Just in case you missed it, Audi of America President Johan de Nysschen visited the Fourtitude forums yesterday. The point of the visit, part of our Q&A series of well-known Audi personalities, was to provide an opportunity to ask the questions. Our readers didn't disappoint, and neither did de Nysschen who dropped more ...
    7. 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 ...
    8. More S7 Test Mules Spied in Spain



      The guys over at quattroholic and their mediterranean spy photographer contacts have nabbed another Audi mule testing in Spain. This time around the car appears to be an S7. The car sports HN license plate (HN standing for Heilbronn, the same that's on all of Audi's Heilbronn-based test cars) and could indicate it's a quattro GmbH mule (thus RS 7), but our money ...
    9. 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 ...
    10. 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 ...
