Springtime at the Nürburgring means only one thing- manufacturer test days.  Carmakers from around the globe have flooded to the German countryside to test their upcoming models, and Audi is no different.  The other day, we first saw the yet-to-be-shown RS 4 being driven in anger, but to be honest, we were slightly more interested […] More…

That there’d be a new R8 Spyder was a foregone conclusion long before any spy photos of the drop-top four-ringer had been seen. And, that it was near time for an official reveal of the car seemed also obvious given the longer and warmer days and the months since that first test mule was spied. Even still, we were a bit surprised to see one running around Germany undisguised. Nevertheless, that’s just what our spy photographers encountered earlier today. More…

By our count, the new Audi A5 range is due very very soon. The eldest and arguably most beautiful of B8-generation designs, Audi chose to hold back the A5 range to launch after the A4 this time around. Based on the testing cadence, we’d say the reveal will come in Geneva next month. Until then, we have a few more spy photos by which to measure what the car will look like. More…

Another A3-based test mule has popped up amidst the frigid winter backdrop of the cold weather testing cycles, this time around a drop-top Cabriolet. Like the A3 sedan we reported on earlier, the car shows fresh details of the upcoming A3-family facelift (a.k.a. Product Improvement, a.k.a. P.I.). More…

Spied: Audi A3 Sedan Facelift Test Mule

The current Audi A3 sedan was launched in 2013. That may not seem like that long ago and the freshness of the current car’s design supports this claim, but Audi’s product cadence means a mid-lifecycle refresh is just around the corner. Spy photos of a test mule confirm that deduction. Of course this is a […] More…

You have to figure test mule drivers are pretty familiar with spy photographers who hang about around places like the Nurburgring. We imagine they have an uneasy relationship, made no less so when one walks up and fires off their camera into the side window of a test mule. It appears that’s exactly what happened here. More…

The on again, off again, and now most certainly on Audi R8 e-tron has been finally spotted in the wild, sans camouflage, and at the Nurburgring, no less.  Already having been revealed and destined for showrooms in the not-too distant future, the reason for this field trip is likely to perform final preparation work and suspension […] More…
