    1. Supposed Audi R4 e-tron Concept Images Surface via Autobild, Believed Legitimate



      Over the weekend some images surfaced that appear to be design drawings of the rumored Audi R4 e-tron Concept Car expected to debut Paris. We're not precisely sure of the source of the images posted by R5T in our Audi Lounge forum but the most credible article online including the pics seems to be that of German car magazine Autobild.

    2. 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.

    5. Autobild Artists' Impression of C7 Audi A6 Avant



      We know it's coming, we just don't know when. The Audi A6 is now one of the oldest cars in the Audi fleet and as such it's due for a freshening. And, it won't be just a mild facelift either. When the next new A6 is shown (version C7) Audi's middleweight luxury will migrate to the company's very successful modular MQB platform. Like the A4 before it, a move to MQB is expected to seriously improve the dynamics of the car. ...
