We’re admitted fans of photoshop illustrators like X-Tomi Design. Peruse their website and you’ll find oodles of cool renders of versions of cars that never were. Some are enlightening and amazing. Others, well, we have to think everybody’s gonna have a day of experimentation (says the website that led the day with a Taylor Swift video).

It’s not a well kept secret that Audi plans to reveal a concept car most likely hinting at an upcoming A9 model at the Los Angeles Auto Show later this month. It had also known that the car will signal Audi’s latest design language thanks to freshly appointed chief of design Marc Lichte. Even still, it was a bit of a surprise when Lichte and the concept car starred in a video short Audi Deutschland put up on YouTube this week.

You may recall the various concept cars Audi has built in order to reprise the original Sport quattro model. It seemed obvious that Ingolstadt was keen on the idea, and as such it may not be so surprising that they’re apparently prepping to bring a production next-generation Sport quattro to reality.

This week’s #FotoshopFriday post isn’t exactly photoshop wizardry or pushing the limits on our rendering ability. We went with an easy one this week, adding some black accents to A3 sedan images from the Audi Deutschland configurator in order to create an A3 TDI competition.

It used to be that rivet flares were for old Datsun Skylines or Z-cars, though that’s clearly changed over the last few years. Rauh Welt’s use of wide rivet flares on Porsche 911s rocketed the look back into the style spotlight, while firms like Liberty Walk have maybe taken them even more mainstream, at least in terms of modern cars. That all said, we’ve yet to see the look applied to a modern Audi… that was until we laid eyes on this render by the automotive photography website More…

A few weeks ago someone alerted us to a photo posted by a fan on the Audi Deutschland fan page on Facebook. That car showed what looked like a Sepang Blue Audi S3 with a lot of testing equipment affixed. Just what Audi might be testing on the already out-there S3 sedan can there can be little doubt. To our eye, this meant either an S3 plus with the high-output 2.0 TFSI engine or perhaps a sedan version of the RS 3.

One of the first to arrive on Audi’s all-new MLB-evo platform, the car is sure to be lighter, faster and all-round better than any A4 before it. Likely it will also mark one of Audi’s first cars designed heavily under the brand’s latest design director Marc Lichte. So what will it look like? DesignRM has taken a guess with these latest renders. More…

This isn’t the first time we’ve seen a harder core Audi R8 test mule out and about. However, previous cars we’d dubbed “Bigfoot” for their widened tracks and extended fenders had a bit of a different look to them than the car that’s turned up this week. This time around, the track appears to be identical to the current R8, though it sports significantly changed lower aero in the form of a body kit with side skirts, and also a really large and extended trunk-mounted spoiler.
