      We've got one more photo from this week's score of test mules spied running through their paces in Argentina this week. One of the cars in the convoy we originally reported about on Monday was definitely an A6 Avant. This rear shot of that car provided to us by our spy photographer sources reveals it's not just an A6 Avant either but likely one with allroad treatment. Note what looks like fender arch treatment too clean to be stick-on mule fare and also what appears to be a trim insert on the lower sideskirts.

      It seems almost a foregone conclusion that the new A6 Avant will spawn an allroad version so this mule isn't exactly surprising. Still, this is the first allroad flavored C7 we've seen to date.

      Alas, for those in the States, don't expect to be able to get one of these. Avant enthusiasts on this site and others can already tell you what is known, which is the A6 Avant will not come Stateside in any form. Still, allroad aficionados may not be left entirely in the cold of a remote Argentian highway in mid August. We hear the A4 Avant will return post facelift next year as an allroad only following the sales success of wagon-based cross-roaders like the Volvo XC70 and Subaru Outback.

      Photo also available in our photo gallery after the jump.

      "Carscoop" recently had an article on the C7 allroad testing (This so-called "scoop" is the same picture as published two weeks earlier here on Fourtitude).

      Interesting quote at the end of the article:

      "We wouldn't be surprised if Audi showed the A6 Allroad Quattro either in Frankfurt next month or at the LA auto show in November. "

      Would Audi bring the C7 allroad back to the US?

      It's hard to have a real scoop nowadays with so many sites fighting for them.

      allroad could pop up at Frankfurt. We'll see. We already know urban Concept (hard top and spyder) plus S6, S6 Avant, S7 and S8 will be there. The question is how many debuts they'll do there. Too many and stuff gets lost.
