Spy Photo: Volkswagen Golf R 20 Years Anniversary Edition

[gallery link="none" columns="1" size="full" ids="77655"] Is Volkswagen working on yet another Golf R version ? We spotted this Golf R 20 Years Anniversary Edition testing at the Nürburgring with canards on each corner of the front bumper making us think the Volkswagen might be working on something more for the Golf R fans. But is it just some kind of track package that will be developed for the Golf R or are they working an even more powerful version? To be honest we have no clue what so ...

Spy Photo: B10 Audi A4 Avant on the Nürburgring

[gallery link="none" columns="1" size="full" ids="77427"] We have some new photos of the Audi A4 Avant and this time the prototypes make their Nürburgring debut. To be honest there is not much to write home about otherwise since the prototype still looks the same since our first sighting. Engine options will continue to stay petrol and diesel though a fully electric version later on is not to be ruled out. Most likely we will also see the manual gearbox go away with this generation making it au...

Spy Photo: Audi RS Q6 e-tron Hits the Nürburgring

[gallery link="none" columns="1" size="full" ids="76864"] We spied the hotter version of the Audi Q6, the RS Q6 once again, and this time during some quick laps around the Nürburgring. Our last sighting was during the winter test season so its been a while since the last time. Visibly we can see the sportier looking front bumper compared to the more regular versions of the Q6. These prototypes also have the production lights as we can see revealing the split headlights up front together with th...

Spy Photo: Porsche Macan EV on the Nürburgring

[gallery link="none" columns="1" size="full" ids="75205"] Macan EV goes ”Ring running”! We have seen so many photos of the electric Porsche Macan out testing and it's still wearing the same camouflage so its actually getting a little boring. But I guess when the prototypes arrive for some Nürburgring testing for the first time, we need to send those photos out as well. So enjoy the photos showing 3 different prototypes testing in the Ring.

Spy Photo: Cupra Tavascan EV Mule at the Nürburgring

[gallery link="none" columns="1" size="full" ids="73402"] Cupra is about to get its first all-electric crossover with the Tavascan. After the VW ID.4, the Skoda Enyaq, and the Audi Q4, it's now time for SEAT. This time the Seat crew is testing on the Nürburgring in order to get their version of the VW Group siblings the sportiest of them all. Said to debut in 2024, it still has a long way to go but the long time sounds strange to us since the Cupra Tavascan will be based on the Volkswagen Group...

Spy Photo: Audi A6 e-tron in Sweden and on the Nürburgring

[gallery link="none" columns="1" size="full" ids="70634"] New photos from both Sweden and the Nürburgring are showing the electric Audi A6 e-tron during testing. While the testing in Sweden is more of endurance testing, the Nürburgring test team are more focused on high speed testing. We also got our first glimpse of the center mounted display but sadly the rest of the interior is covered up. Enjoy the gallery.

Spied: Audi Q9 at the Nürburgring

[gallery link="none" columns="1" size="full" ids="65380"] Just as we sent out our photos of the Audi Q9 we received a new batch from the Nürburgring. And this time it looks like the Q9 prototypes have the production body. No more VW Atlas bodies. We can also see the production lights have been fitted both up front and at the rear. As far as we know this is still a China only affair but maybe we will see the Q9 in the rest of the world later on.

Since the spy debut was not so long ago, the amount of camouflage hasn’t changed yet but we still have a pretty good thought on how it will look. The Q5 Sportback will look just as the recently facelifted Q5 but with a slooping and sportier looking roof. The technical parts of the Q5 Sport...
