      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've just been passed these photos of that mystery Audi on location at that ski jump photo shoot. Originally rumored to be an R4 e-tron concept car we're not so sure that's true anymore... at least the e-tron part.

    8. 4.0T FSI Alert: Audi's Next-Gen Wunder Engine Revealed in Bentley Press Release



      There've been any number of rumors about the engine that will power Audi's upcoming S and RS variants. We've read everything from V10 biturbo to high-rev V8 in the mags but at the end of the day we're keeping our money on the biturbo 4.0T FSI to motivate the S6, S7, S8 (likely more as 4.2 is phased out) and likely RS variants of each will be a biturbo 4.0T.
