Audi Q6 e-tron Spied for the First Time

[gallery link="none" columns="1" size="full" ids="58735"] Audi Q6 e-tron spied for the first time! We know Porsche is developing a new and fully electric Macan. The new Macan will ride on a new platform dubbed PPE , Premium Platform Electric, that is co-developed with Audi. While the platform for the Taycan (J1) was designed for cars sitting low on the road , the PPE is designed for high-floor cars like the Macan according to engineering chief, Dr. Michael Steiner. Audi will also use the PPE pla...

Spy Photo: Lamborghini Urus EVO Facelift

[gallery link="none" columns="1" size="full" ids="57704"] The Audi RS Q8's cousin is getting a facelift. Spied winter testing with a current Urus, you can see the changes to the front bumper with slightly different air intakes but it looks like the headlights remain the same. [gallery link="none" columns="1" size="full" ids="57712"] If you can see past the camouflage and the exhaust plume, you can see the rear tail lights and bumper has some small changes as well. With this facelift for the Urus...

Spy Photo: Volkswagen MK8 Golf R Wagon

[gallery link="none" columns="1" size="full" ids="57444"] For those who don't know, the Mk7 and MK7.5 Golf R sits on the MQB platform as does the Audi S3/RS 3. In the States though, we did not get the Golf R Wagon and it looks like we may never get it as Volkswagen of America has dropped the Golf SportWagen/Alltrack (and the base Golf) from its lineup. That's too bad because the Golf R wagon seen here is a good looking vehicle. Did I mention that the Golf R is also AWD? We spotted a prototype fo...

Spy Photo: Audi Horch A8L

[gallery link="none" columns="1" size="full" ids="57421"] Wait...did you just say Horch? The rumor that Audi will bring back the Horch name plate for an ultra-luxurious car to fight against the Mercedes Maybach has been swirling around for some years now and back in 2019, Audi confirmed the plans. Well to be honest, they did just confirm the car not the Horch name. But with Mercedes using Maybach for its luxury version of the S-Class, it makes sense for Audi to resurrect the Horch name for the b...

Cupra is the high performance subsidiary of the Spanish automobile manufacturer SEAT, itself a wholly owned subsidiary of Volkswagen Group (which owns Audi).

Spy Photo: 2022 Audi A8 Facelift

[gallery link="none" columns="1" size="full" ids="57202"] It's the New Year and that means it's time for some new spy shots again. We start off with the first photos of the upcoming Audi A8 facelift. And we spied not one but two prototypes out testing and even if they look pretty much the same, there are some small differences. The facelifted Audi A8 will get some new head lights in “A3” style as we can see and also a new designed grille. The grille just doesn't have new inserts but also has...

New Audi S3 Interior Spied

[gallery link="none" columns="1" size="full" ids="42217"] We spied the upcoming Audi S3 once again and this time we came a little closer. While the outside doesn’t reveal anything new to us, we also got a chance to look into a prototype making it possible to shoot some photos. The screen looks like it goes around the “corner” just like on the new VW Golf but we are not really sure. [gallery link="none" columns="1" size="full" ids="42219"] This is the S3 pictured but the regular A3 will hav...

Spy Photos of the Audi S3 Sedan in the Snow Plus Audi A3 Sedan (Almost) Uncovered

[gallery link="none" columns="1" size="full" ids="41991"] Our photographers spied the upcoming Audi S3 sedan during cold weather testing in Sweden. They also captured it hot weather testing last year. There is not much changed regarding the camouflage on the S3 Sedan but it’s always nice to see some fresh photos during the development and the first winter testing. Well the first winter testing where Audi allows us to shoot some photos while driving on public roads, most likely these Audi A3/S3...

Spy Photos of the Audi RS 3 at the Nürburgring

[gallery link="none" columns="1" size="full" ids="37246"] words: Bill, photos: Audi Club North America While photos of the new A3 and S3 testing have been seen, the new RS 3 has not (except for a mule based on the current body) until now. Our spy photographers shot the new RS 3 on the holiest grounds for a car nerd...the Nürburgring. [gallery link="none" columns="1" size="full" ids="37245"] The RS 3 will of course get wider fenders and a more aggressive front end. Set to debut in 2020, the new ...

Audi RS Q8 a “Cool Mule”, Testing at Nurburgring with this Livery

Considering the news cycle this week, it appears that Audi Sport has been extra-busy RS-ing all of the things. Yesterday's drop of the RS 6 Avant plus confirmation of it for the USA lit up all the phones at your friendly neighborhood Audi dealers, and now we've got new photos of the RS Q8 testing at Nurburgring. Like the Audi RS 6 Avant, the RS Q8 is based on the latest evolution of the brand's MLB component set, and in as much it is expected to share the same highly potent drivetrain ...

Audi RS 5 Sportback Facelift Spied

Today, spy photographers have caught site of the first facelift RS 5 Sportback test mule seen thus far. This'll be the mid-lifecycle improvement of the current B9-generation RS 5, so known in enthusiast circles as the "B9.5". Many of the expected changes that will come with the B9/5 freshening have already been seen in the recently introduced B9/5 A4/S4 range. These include significant improvements in the in-car experience including touch screen MMI and more. Unlike the A4/S4, updat...

Next-Generation Audi S3 Sedan Spied

Spy photographers have caught the sedan variant of the next-generation S3 sedan out performing hot weather testing. While S3 Sportback variants have been previously spied, the arrival of a pre-production sedan body style is more interesting to American buyers where the 4-door is the sole body style for the S3. As with the first-generation A3/S3 sedan, this next-generation car appears to stick with its B5-harkening upright 4-door body style rather than going for lower-slung proportions ...

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
