    Spy Shots: Audi Q7 plug-in hybrid spied, Porsche powertrain possible
    1410816660

    It's no secret that a new Audi Q7 is on the way. The replacement for the aging, three-row luxury CUV has already been spotted once, in December of 2013. Now, though, we have images of the second-generation model lapping Germany's Nürburgring Nordschleife, and it just happens to be showing a feature we reported on at the end of July – a ...

    Spy Shots: Bentley testing new SUV in Audi Q7's clothes
    1400770920

    Sure, this looks largely like an Audi Q7. What if we told you, though, that it was actually a Bentley? This may be one of the very first sets of images we've seen of the aristocratic brand's SUV. Based on the borrowed Audi bodywork, however, testing appears to be in the early stages. While it may look like an Audi Q7, there are a number of giveaways. One ...

    Spy Shots: Audi perfecting drool-worthy RS3 hot hatch
    1398449760

    A sure-fire way of adding excitement to any Audi is removing the "A" from its model name and replacing it with "RS." Take the RS4, RS5, RS6 and RS7 as proof of this fact. Of course, the transformation from "A" to "RS" wouldn't be complete with a huge bump in power, a far more sporting suspension, enhanced brakes and a more aggressive styling ...

    Spy Shots: Audi prepping minor refresh for S6
    1397774400

    Audi is well underway with testing for all of the refreshed versions of its A6-based sedan. We've already shown you shots of the Euro-spec A6 Allroad (which will wear some of its styling with our US-spec A6 sedan), and now we have some shots of a car that will actually arrive in the United States - the S6. Like the Allroad, this will be quite a modest ...

    Spy Shots: Audi's next R8 snapped running the 'Ring nearly naked
    1397055480

    Following the debut of the Lamborghini Huracán, work is now well well under way on its cousin. That, of course, would be the next-generation Audi R8, the followup to the model that put Ingolstadt on the supercar map in 2006 and has been on the market ever since. That's an eight-year lifespan, though to be fair, for 2014 it has gotten a pretty ...

    Video: Next Audi R8 seen and heard in this spy video
    1395930540

    A few weeks ago, our clandestine spy photographers brought home the first good look at the next-generation Audi R8. We were all pretty stoked. Seemingly following the game plan of the recently shown Audi TT, the next R8 looks to be an evolutionary update on a supercar form that pretty much everyone loves. Today, the same shooters that snapped the car in ...

    Spy Shots: Next Audi R8 caught on the 'Ring
    1395154800

    Now that we're kinda-sorta-maybe-slowly thawing out from this horrible winter, automakers are moving away from the harsh extremes of winter testing and taking their new wares for laps around the infamous Nürburgring. What better way to kick off the sports car testing season than some fresh shots of the next-generation Audi R8 supercar? Despite the ...

    Spy Shots: Audi A1 now testing after S1 Geneva debut
    1394989380

    Audi showed of its new S1 hot hatch to the public at the Geneva Motor Show last week, but the Four Ringed brand isn't done tweaking the smallest member of its lineup. Here are spy shots of an upcoming refresh of the standard A1. The camouflaged model on display here appears to be the three-door model. From what we can discern, it seems the A1 is going to ...

    Spy Shots: Audi TT spy shots reveal revised lighting elements

    As we inch closer to an expected Geneva debut for the next-generation Audi TT, our latest round of spy photos are starting to give us an even better look at Audi's latest sports car. This time out, we're getting more details on the car's head and taillights. It's safe to say that the new headlight design will not incorporate the twin rally lights we see ...

    Spy Shots: Audi A7 getting nip and tuck
    1390350540

    It's been less than two years since the Audi A7 first went on sale in the US, but European buyers have been able to enjoy the sleek and stylish hatchback for twice as long. As such, Audi is preparing to give its A7 a mild refresh with tweaked exterior styling, but we're also expecting some of the features found in the all-new 2015 Audi A8 to possibly ...

    Spy Shots: Audi Q7 testing gives us clearer view of new look
    1386167400

    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 ...

    Spy Shots: Audi S1 nearly ready to rocket euros out of your pocket
    1385587740

    Audi was out testing its upcoming S1 on the streets of Germany when our trusty spy photographers snapped the new, all-wheel-drive hot hatch that's set to succeed the limited-edition A1 Quattro. Unlike the A1 Quattro, the S1 should sport a much less aggressive look overall. As shown in the spy shots, its wheel wells lack the meaty flairs of its ...

    Spy Shots: Audi testing all-new, third-gen TT prototype
    1382376360

    It's no big surprise that Audi is working on a new TT. It's been rumored for a while now, and the current model has been on the market since 2006, making it seven years old. But after seeing only some test mules wearing the existing model's sheetmetal, this is the first glimpse we've gotten at what Audi has in store for it's third-gen TT. Not that we can ...

    Spy Shots: Audi RS3 spy shots foreshadow an ultra-hot hatch
    1380929400

    Not all vehicle prototypes and mules require heavy camouflage – sometimes they can be hidden in plain sight. That's probably what Audi was hoping for while testing its new RS3 wearing S3 duds, but thanks to some visual and audible telltales, our spy photographers were able to recognize this as a precursor to the marque's ultra-hot hatch testing near ...

    Spy Shots: 2015 Audi Q7 spotted with a blurry first look
    1376350020

    Here's the good news: we finally have visual evidence of the upcoming and all-new 2015 Audi Q7 luxury SUV. A set of photographs show that Audi has been putting the SUV through its paces, with an eye towards an on-sale date sometime late next year. The bad news is that it was not one of our usual clear-lensed spy photographers that captured these first ...

    Confirmed: Audi promises next A8 on sale by year's end, LED Matrix lamps to be available [w/video]
    1372618860

    Audi has just released details about its new Matrix LED headlamps, but just as illuminating as the new lighting technology is confirmation that the next A8 will appear "on the market at the end of 2013." While Audi is calling the model new, expectations – and the spy shots above – suggest more of a traditional mid-cycle refresh. Audi says ...

    Spy Shots: Updated Audi R8 GT caught testing
    1370028600

    When Audi introduced the refreshed 2014 R8, one of the first things we noticed was that the new R8 V10 Plus offers identical output to the outgoing R8 GT, suggesting that this limited-production model was either due to be cancelled or poised for a serious power increase. Fortunately, these spy shots have us suspecting that the latter is more likely. Like ...

    The coming Audi A8 has already been spotted in camouflage on public roads at earthly elevations, and now our snappers have caught it at elevation in the Alps. The evolution will entail modified head- and taillights, different sculpting for the grille and a new bumper profile said to be more in line with the A6 S Line. Inside, there might also be ...

    Spy Shots: Audi S3 Cabriolet spotted in the world for the first time
    1359477000

    Spy photographers have finally managed to lay a lens on the upcoming Audi S3 Cabriolet. The new convertible stepped out into the light of day for a little winter testing, and from the looks of things, the model will borrow plenty of design cues from the larger A5. Not that we're complaining. Word has it the S3 will put around 300 horsepower to the ...

    Spy Shots: US-bound Audi A3 Sedan spied testing

    As the Audi A3 sedan gets closer to its debut, Audi has camouflaged prototypes to take it on the streets for final testing. Last time we saw the A3, it was testing almost in the buff, but it was on a closed track so our spy shooters were kept at quite a distance. Now that the newest Audi sedan is testing on public roads, our latest batch of spy shots ...
