Audi Sport tested in Monza on Tuesday with both the current R18 e-tron quattro and also what looks like racing version of the next-generation Audi R8. The road going version of the latter is expected to debut this year and no doubt the GT3-spec R8 LMS is an important part of the Audi R8 rollout. Fortunately, photographer Matteo Milani was on hand and nabbed these shots.

Audi AG’s corporate technology officer (and head of development) Dr. Ulrich Hackenberg is essentially the man in Ingolstadt.

One of the cars on display at this week’s New York International Auto Show was a Daytona Grey Audi SQ5.

No sooner had we posted our #fotoshopfriday facelifted Audi R8 GT render this morning and one of our readers Miguel Relvas posted a link to one very interesting video that was uploaded to YouTube yesterday. It certainly appears that Audi could be testing a new R8 GT based on what we can tell.

Our latest installment of our #FotoshopFriday series may well be considered low-hanging fruit. The latest facelift of the Audi R8 was subtle, subtler still if you consider elements like the exhaust pipe shape, rearview mirrors and some front fascia elements came over from the R8 GT. Even still, as of yet there’s been no new facelifted R8 GT. This quick adjustment of an R8 GT profile envisions such a car in pixels. More…

Given the new S1 has already been revealed, spy photos of a new Audi A1 may be a bit anti-climactic. Even still, an A1 facelift is imminent, and though it will likely utilize many of the changes such as redesigned headlights and taillights already seen on the S1, we’ve got photos of the A1-spec car undergoing cold-weather testing just the same.

It’s about time Audi’s “C7″ range of cars including A6 and A7 undergo their mid-lifcycle product improvement or “P.I.”. Given the timing in the process, it’s about time we also see test mules popping up in the typical test environments. Thus far, the A7 was the only car of the group to be caught out in the open, though our spy photographers have also just caught the new A6 allroad.
