The test department over at Audi has been awfully busy this week. Just yesterday we saw pictures of the new A8 testing at the Nurburgring, and now our photographers have caught them testing the sporty SQ2 at the “Green Hell.” Audi’s test department have been so busy, in fact, that they forgot to put camouflage […] More…

Reports are surfacing that Audi’s new SQ5 will be powered by a 3.0L diesel stuffed with the latest Audi tech, that is likely to give it 365bhp.

During a relatively routine Nürburgring visit, our friends at CarPix spied what we believe to be a very early test mule of Audi’s next-generation RS 5, wearing the requisite camouflage and large new fender flares, pointing toward a significantly wider track when compared to the standard car.  This spot comes just a few weeks after […] More…

Audi’s spring at the Nurburgring continued today, as the spy photographers from CarPix captured a S5 Cabriolet test mule lapping the famous racetrack.  As usual, Audi’s camouflage does a very good job of disguising the car underneath, but in this lighting, there are a few observations that can be made. From the relatively little we […] More…

We know that Audi’s upcoming S5 Sportback will be coming to the US.  We can make an extremely educated guess that it’ll be powered by the same V6T found in the S4, with 354hp and 369 lb-ft of torque driving all four wheels.  And thankfully after today’s spot by the photographers at CarPix, we know have a pretty good idea […] More…

For many Audi enthusiasts, the anticipation and excitement for the latest RS models often comes long before the vehicle it’s based on is even shown.  This is perhaps even more so the case with each new iteration of Audi’s RS 4, as the model has arguably been one of, if not the definitive everyday halo car […] More…

If the product road map leaked earlier this year is to be believed, Audi’s next-generation Q5 is coming in May of next year, meaning that we should see the production build later this year, possibly as early as October at the Paris Motor Show.  And while we know that the Q5 will mimic the all-new […] More…

It all started with a question- what will Motorsport look like in 2039?  This may sound simple, but with ever-tightening sound and safety regulations, the car of that era may not compete on anything like what we’ve seen.  It was with these questions in mind that German design student Peter Semenov put pen to paper […] More…

According to France’s L’Automobile Magazine, Audi’s quite keen on expanding their RS lineup to include the Euro-only Q2 that we first saw in Geneva earlier this month.  It’s a plan that should resonate with less affluent enthusiasts, although with no ‘standard’ Q2 coming to the states, any potential RS variants aren’t worth holding your breath […] More…

The game of ‘What if’ gets played more often than I’d ever care to admit around our offices.  Topics generally range from which RS model Audi should make next, to 25 year old import-eligible Group B rally cars, but it never fails to completely kill productivity for a brief period of time.  Fortunately for us, when […] More…
