Spied: B9.5 Audi S4 Avant

As Audi moves closer to launch of its freshened B9 range of cars, more and more test mules of the many variants are being spied in locales known for prototype testing. This week, an updated B9.5 S4 Avant was caught cold weather testing. Spoiler alert, the Audi S4 Avant isn't coming to America... at least based on any rumors we've ever heard. While there's been plenty of talk about A6 allroad and even RS 6, it is believed the B9 Avant is too far into lifecycle to make sense for importat...

Find of the Day: 2001 Audi RS 4 Avant OEM+ Featured in Q2 2019 quattro Magazine

words: Bill, photos: Bring A Trailer The latest issue of quattro Magazine (Q2_2019) is on its way to Audi Club members. In it, they'll find an article about a B5 RS 4 Avant entitled Rennsport + Avant = Perfection. I proofread quattro which means reading every issue cover to cover...several several times. So imagine my surprise when this Avant showed up on Bring A Trailer. I recognized it even before I knew what I was looking at. I won't spoil the article before you have a chance ...

More Next-Gen RS 6 Avant Photos from Nürburgring

With the weather turning to spring in Europe, the auto manufacturer development schedule turns to the Nürburgring Nordschleife. Spy photographers first caught the new RS 6 in the area around the fabled German road course yesterday. Today, they've caught the car again, this time out on track. There's nothing new to report in the last 24-hours, so this is simply our drawing your attention to more photos of  the same or a very similar car as was seen yesterday. Even still, we figured you'd not ...

Oh. Hello There Next-Generation Audi RS 6 Avant!

Spies in Europe have finally caught the next-generation Audi RS 6 Avant out testing. While the RS 7 has been seen already, the RS 6 has been well-hidden... at least up until now. Whenever the RS 6 Avant has been spied before, it has worn heavy cladding and not given much of a view of what we can expect. This particular car has mainly just funkadelic vinyl on it, and even the wheels look like they may very well be an upcoming production design. Beyond those wheels are the large brakes tha...

B9.5 Audi RS 4 Avant Spied Cold Weather Testing

Audi is prepping a "B9.5" mid-lifecycle refreshening for its B-segment range of cars including A4, A5 and Q5 families. In as much, spy photographers have been catching mules of these cars cold weather testing this winter. While not offered in the USA, we have no doubt that the sighting of a B9.5 RS 4 Avant is enough to get serious attention from any red-blooded Audi aficionado. Given this is a mid-lifecycle freshening, don't expect significant drivetrain differences. Instead, consider the...

Audi USA Summons Avants via Twitter. Oh Boy!

Just in case you don't watch Twitter, you'll be forgiven for having missed this tweet. Even still, Audi USA has made a most interesting post about sixteen hours ago. It's about Avants. Eyebrows raised yet? Here's the tweet. — Audi (@Audi) March 8, 2019 Now, we're not experts on summoning circles, but we've been around the block a few times regarding Audi and Avants. No joke. We've circled their headquarters in our allroad seeking out Euro spec long roofs they might be hiding on numerou...

quattro Magazine: A4 Avantage

by: George Achorn, photos by: Eric Yeager, George Achorn Editor’s note: This article originally ran in the Q1_2019 issue of quattro magazine. Maybe it’s tenor of the Italian language. It almost sounds poetic… maybe as if by destiny…when a guy with the last name “Avantaggio” builds the ultimate OEM plus B8 A4 Avant. You see, the Italian suffix aggio is equivalent to the English age, indicating action but perhaps with a more stylish flair. The translation, “Avantage” then seems a...

ABT Presenting The Speed-Style A6 3.0 TDI in Geneva

source: ABT Sportsline Ok...let's get this out of the way. We know we do not get the TDI in the States/Canada and probably will not see a new one in the future but we may get the A6 Avant so this still applies (at least in terms of everything but the engine management)? The Jet d’Eau fountain with its up to 140 meters (460 ft) high and bright white water jet is the best known attraction of Lake Geneva: Thanks to a pump performance of 1,000 kW, the cool water is jetted upwards with ...

Motor Authority: Decision To Bring Audi RS 6, A6 Avant To US Coming Soon

source: Motor Authority Audi plans to make a decision on whether it will introduce a new generation of the A6 Avant and the hotter RS 6 Avant for the U.S. market soon. CarBuzz initially reported in January that its own source was told by Audi executives that the company had given both wagon models the green light for the U.S., and that they will arrive with the next RS 7 Sportback. However, Audi spokesman Mark Dahncke told Motor Authority on Monday that information is not correct. He s...

Motor1.com: New Audi A4 allroad Spied For The First Time

source: Motor1.com The beefy A4 will either be a 2020 or 2021 model. We know Audi has a major facelift coming for the A4. We caught our first glimpse of the camouflaged sedan and wagon last month, and now spy photographers captured the elusive allroad model testing in the snowy white north. At a quick glance this could almost be mistaken for the A4 Avant we saw previously – the camouflage pattern matches, as well as the wheels and even the location for the photos. There are some ke...

Limited Special Edition With Up To 530 HP: The New ABT RS4+

source: ABT Sportsline Yeah yeah...I know we don't get the magnificent RS 4 here in the States (but rumors of the RS 6 coming soon abound) and we certainly don't get the monstrous ABT RS4+ but we can enjoy some great photos of the RS4+ in the snow, can't we? Anyway, onto the press release: We can all remember what it was like when we were kids: you got a brand new bicycle for Christmas, but because the weather was so awful, you have not been able to ride it even once.

Find of the Day: 1994 Audi S2 Avant

words: Bill, photos: Autoscout24.com I know I've mentioned this ad nauseam but you can import RS2s into the States now that it's 2019. Hurray but only if you have the money to find one that isn't beat. However, there is a consolation prize and in itself, not a bad prize at all. The RS2's little brother is the S2. Unlike the Avant only RS2, the S2 came in an Avant, coupe, and the very rare sedan version. I've picked the Avant because who doesn't love Avants? Powered by a 230hp 2.2L turbo 5, it'...

Autoblog: 2020 Audi A4 Avant Spy Photos Show Yet Another Refresh

source: Autoblog Audi just showed a refreshed A4 back in June, but the company apparently still feels the design won't be up-to-date when sharing showroom space with the new A8, A7 and A6. We know this because one of our spy photographers caught the above A4 Avant example testing with yet another new front fascia. This update is more dramatic, but it's still just a mild refresh overall.... Read the rest of the story HERE

Find of the Day: 1994 S4 Avant (C4)

photos: suchen.mobile.de Yesterday, a 1993 Ur-S4 with just under 12,000 miles sold on Bring A Trailer for $33,000. Thirty...three...thousand...dollars.  With this in mind, I decided to search the sites for a similar S4 to see how much people were asking for them but then I ran across this. This is a 1994 C4 S4 Avant. While it's not a low mileage example (205,631 kms/127,773 miles), it is slightly more affordable at €6,000 ($7,742) and in my opinion, a more desirable ...
