Entering Its Silver Years With A Supercharged Six Life for us mammals is comparatively finite. Lacking the luxury of a mid-cycle refresh, the average human in the United States can expect to live about 80 years before their clock stops ticking. That isn't too terrible in the grand scheme of things. After all, the typical mountain lion is lucky to get 20 years as a feared predator while most guinea pigs go quietly after just eight years in the household cage.

Audi just announced its intentions to build the Q1 in 2016. By that time, the company will already have introduced the opposing bookend to that subcompact utility vehicle, the fullsize Q7. The last time we saw the next-gen Audi Q7 out testing, our spy shots were very low quality and didn't reveal much about the luxury SUV. This time around we're able to ...
Here's the good news: we finally have visual evidence of the upcoming and all-new 2015 Audi Q7 luxury SUV.

Audi is looking to get the most out of the modular long platform that underpins the current A5 and the future A4, and the Q5 looks like the obvious next step. The folks over at World Car Fans have published shots of Audi's future crossover with barely any camo, and the general theme looks to be "fancy Tiguan".

There have been lots of rumblings about a possible Lamborghini SUV. Maybe something along the lines of a neo LM002. Lamborghini spokesmen have said that they are considering entering new segments but pointed out that retro was not an option. With a corporate platform available that has produced everything from a VW to a Porsche, and a rumored Bentley ...
With the Q7 doing pretty well for Audi dealers, it shouldn't come as a big surprise that the automaker's working on another SUV to go up against BMW's smaller X3. Here we offer spy shots of that upcoming model, to be dubbed Q5 when it hits showrooms in early 2008. Hans Lehmann over at Hidden Image speculates that this model appears to be sitting on a ...
