    Spy Shots: Audi RS5 Cabriolet prototype leaves its lid on
    1342643340

    A month after paperwork for the RS5 Cabriolet was delivered into the California Air Resources Board for certification, the genuine item is being driven around the Nürburgring for a different kind of sign-off. The folks at CarPix caught the 450-horsepower Audi droptop at the German landmark. When it's not being wrung out, we figure the cabriolet is ...

    Video: Facelifted Audi R8 recorded on the 'Ring
    1340290680

    The facelifted 2013 Audi R8 was out on public roads and, naturally, videotaped. Sheathed in camo again after having been at it totally naked not long before, there is less to visualize, but you can at least see – and, just as importantly, hear – it in action. Make sure to watch the whole thing: the special feature at the end of this video is a ...

    Spy Shots: Are you the Audi S1?
    1340129700

    The engineers at Audi look to be hard at work on a more potent version of the company's A1 hatchback. Spy photographers spotted this machine out on public streets for testing, and the presence of a set of quad exhaust out back leads us to believe this could be the rumored S1 model. It's unclear whether this machine will slot under the limited-edition ...

    Spy Shots: Audi R8 facelift comes into focus
    1337722080

    These are spy shots of the facelifted Audi R8 that we expect to see later this year. You'll need to look very closely at the front to see where the lifting and tucking has been done: new LED headlights inside a slightly reworked grille. Around back are round tailpipes like those on the R8 GT. This is a refreshed model that will hold us until the 2015 ...

    Spy Shots: Audi R8 E-Tron test mule does quick but quiet hot laps on Nürburgring
    1335386700

    Imagine you're a spy shooter at the Nürburgring. You've got your ancient Ford Scorpio parked nearby, but you've hoofed it up to the top of a hill in the hopes of getting the perfect angle on the track. Three heavy cameras are strung about your body like you're a contestant in The World's Strongest Man competition. It's early and you are tired. And ...

    Spy Shots: Audi R8 facelift reveals evolutionary change
    1333634400

    Audi told us a new R8 was coming, and now our spy shooters have caught it testing. The good news is that the car still looks stunning. The bad news is that's because the original R8 design has aged so well. What we're seeing in these photos doesn't indicate much has changed outside of minor tweaks to the front fascia that seem mostly designed to ...

    Spy Shots: Audi Q6 mule spotted testing
    1332373500

    Our spy photographers have nabbed the first glimpse at the upcoming Audi Q6 – a crossover that's being designed to give the BMW X6 something to torment on the playground. These shots show that the Q6 will ride on an altered version of same platform underpinning the current Q5, but from the look of things, the Q6 is a good bit longer and wider than ...

    Spy Shots: Audi TT mule shows little, promises much
    1330549200

    When we last checked in with the little bit of speculation there's been on the coming, third-generation Audi TT, rumors said the TT would move upmarket to make MSRP space below for a mid-engined Audi R4. With the R4's future in question, who knows how the TT will play it, but other scuttlebutt says that the TT will be on the MQB platform, will combine ...

    Spy Shots: Is this the 2012 Audi A3?
    1329345060

    Audi is expected to unveil its new A3 at the upcoming Geneva Motor Show next month, but when it does, we'll already have a pretty good idea of what to expect. And not just because the German automaker's entire range pretty much boils down (for better or worse) to a single design applied to a variety of shapes, but because it apparently has more leaks than ...

    Spy Shots: Porsche Cajun prototype caught wearing Audi duds in Sweden

    'Tis the season, or so they say. But we're not talking about the holidays. We're talking about the season for cold-weather testing of new prototypes up in northern Sweden. After our intrepid shutter-bugs snapped an updated Mercedes-Benz GLK taking its licks in the snow way up there near the arctic circle, now they've caught this Audi Q5 test mule. Only ...

    Spy Shots: Audi A4 Allroad gets freshy-fresh
    1318971660

    Audi is progressing with development of the its A4 Allroad facelift. Our spy photographers caught the model out and about during hot weather testing in southern Europe, which means the final production version is closer than ever before. It's still unclear as to whether or not the long-roof A4 will find its way Stateside due to the fact that the German ...

    Spy Shots: Hotter Audi RS1 caught testing
    1318530540

    When you seen an Audi prototype with enormous lower air intakes up front, it can only mean one thing: an RS model cometh. Earlier reports stated that Audi might skip the S1 and go right for the hardcore RS1 you see here, and while we've seen spy shots of what appeared to be an S1, the fact that we haven't heard anything since could mean that this RS model ...

    The return of the Audi Allroad is nigh... possibly! Rumors have been swirling like camouflage that Audi is working on a new A4 Allroad. Our spy photographers spotted a camo-covered Allroad undergoing hot weather testing in Southern Europe, but the up-rated wagon underneath these swirls is an A6 Avant. Is Audi getting ready to bring out a variety of ...

    Spy Shots: Audi RS4 Avant caught on 'Ring with A4 facelift

    Performance wagons are the securely on the list of items that make our enthusiast hearts go pitter-pat. Sadly, there is a distinct lack of options in this segment, and some of the very best products never make it here to the States. One such long-roof that long ago joined the Forbidden Fruit category is the Audi RS4 Avant, whose successor has been spied ...

    Is this the face of the next Audi R8?
    1314122460

    It may be hard to believe, but the Audi R8 has already been on the market for five years. And while it was cutting edge then and is still eminently fresh and desirable by any account, sooner or later it's going to need a bit of a touch-up up to keep ahead of the competition. And this could be our first look at what to expect. Apparently leaked out ...

    Spy Shots: Porsche Cajun mule spied wearing Audi Q5 skin

    Well well well, what do we have here? Looks like an Audi Q5. But what of those black fender flare extensions? Are we looking at a Q5-S or even a Q5-RS? Considering that it was snapped entering the Porsche test facility at the Nürburgring, our sources suggest what we're actually looking at is a very early development mule for the new Porsche ...

    Despite its familiar looks, our spies have not captured a next-generation Audi Q5 undergoing evaluation. Look closely and you'll see that this current Q5's body has been lengthened and widened, leading us to believe that this is, in fact, a test mule for the Q6 – Audi's answer to the BMW X6 and the upcoming Mercedes-Benz GLS-Class. Surely, when Audi ...

    Audi is in the midst of reshaping its entire family. The new look starts at the top with the redesigned A8, has shown itself on the A7 and A6, and will now filter its way down through the rest of the lineup. Next in line to get the updated look is the A3, and spy photographers managed to capture a cladding-covered prototype on vacation down in ...

    Spy Shots: Audi S6 Avant looks ready to smoke your crossover

    While crossovers dominate the American highway, that role is taken up overseas by estate wagons. And few are as enticing as the Audi S6 Avant. Offering all the creature comforts of the Audi A6, the S6 Avant ups the ante with all the cargo space you'd expect in a crossover with a rip-roarin' engine under the hood. In the case of the new model, we're ...
