Spy Photos: Audi S6 Based Mule

[gallery link="none" columns="1" size="full" ids="70371"] What is Audi cooking with this Audi S6? When we first saw this Audi S6, we reacted on the sound it made. It was very loud but didn’t look that different when it was coming towards us. But then when we saw the back of it, the more central mounted exhaust pipes really made us understand why it was so loud. [gallery link="none" columns="1" size="full" ids="70385"] As we can see, the pipes look very provisional and there is also a strange b...

Spy Photo: Audi R8 V10 RWD GT?

[gallery link="none" columns="1" size="full" ids="67743"] A last ”Hurrah” to the R8 or just some performance parts? Audi Sport didn’t show any performance parts for the facelifted R8 yet (only the pre-facelift was available with these parts) but we spotted a prototype in the snow with all the performance parts fitted and that of course raises some questions. We know Audi is planning some more special edition models of the R8 for a 2022 debut (Audi R8 RWD GT?) and this one could be a protot...

Spy Photos: Audi A3 allroad/Cityhopper

[gallery link="none" columns="1" size="full" ids="66042"] The Audi A3 gets a high-riding version! It was just a matter of time before we would see the Audi A3 in a high riding version in order to join its brothers with the A1 Citycarver and the allroad versions of the A4 Avant and the A6 Avant. These higher riding versions are getting more and more popular since they give the buyers the “off-road-look” without having to buy an SUV. Most of the car manufacturers are bringing more and more “...

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.

We have some new photos showing the Audi Q4 e-tron and its Sportback sibling during testing . As you can see the outside is still looking as usual with the camouflage so luckily we have some new photos showing off the interior instead.

Spied: Audi RS 3 Sedan Winter Testing

[gallery link="none" columns="1" size="full" ids="57157"] With the regular Audi A3 sedan out and official, there is no need for Audi to hide the upcoming RS 3 in full camo anymore except for the RS parts. Just like the RS 3 Sportback, we can see that this prototype also has the wide production fenders behind that camouflage. We also notice that there is an air outlet hidden under camouflage at the area behind the front wheel. Wider fenders need wider side sills and they are also present on this ...

Long Wheelbase Audi A7 L Spied in Germany

[gallery link="none" columns="1" size="full" ids="56439"] If you’re familiar with Chinese customer trends in the car market, you know they have a soft spot for rear legroom. Plenty of cars are sold in the People’s Republic with an extended wheelbase, including models such as the A4L and A6L sedans. The flagship A8 is sold locally exclusively in the stretched form, and there are even Q2L and Q5L models serving as roomier derivatives of the two SUVs. And now its time for yet another model...

Audi Q4 e-tron and Audi Q4 Sportback e-tron Spied Inside and Out

[gallery link="none" columns="1" size="full" ids="55152"] We have some new photos showing both the Audi Q4 Sportback e-tron and the regular Q4 e-tron out on testing. The Q4 e-tron brothers are no secret anymore for most of you as we have spied them both before (Q4 e-tron) (Q4 Sportback e-tron) but this time we also managed to get a look inside two of them. We can see that the look of the interior differs both from the one seen in the VW ID.4 as well as the Skoda Enyaq iV and resembles the look o...

Porsche Macan EV Prototype Spied

[gallery link="none" columns="1" size="full" ids="54389"] The next generation Porsche Macan will go all electric and we spied the very first prototypes. This prototype was out testing on a test track in bad weather conditions such as rain and fog and the distance didn’t help either but never the less, we are happy to be able to show you the very first photos. The new Macan will ride on a new platform dubbed PPE, Premium Platform Electric, that is co-developed with Audi. While the platform...

Spied: Audi e-tron GT on the Nürburgring

[gallery link="none" columns="1" size="full" ids="52769"] Our photographers have been busy lately. Aside from the capturing the RS 3 sedan on the Nürburgring, they also spotted the Audi e-tron GT out testing there. Audi had two prototypes of the e-tron GT testing on and around the Nürburgring but both cars still wearing the same amount of camouflage. [gallery link="none" columns="1" size="full" ids="52752"] The Audi E-Tron GT is based on the same platform as the Porsche Taycan a...

Audi RS 3 Sedan Spied on the Nürburgring…Again

[gallery link="none" columns="1" size="full" ids="52637"] With the regular Audi A3 sedan out and official, there is no need for Audi to hide the upcoming RS 3 in full camo anymore except for the RS parts. We have spied the upcoming Audi RS 3 sedan several times before but they were always more of mules with a modified A3 bodies than actual production ready prototypes. The wider front fenders where really unfinished and so. But this has all changed now with the latest photos showing an Audi ...

Spied: Audi RS 3 Sedan

[gallery link="none" columns="1" size="full" ids="49828"] words: Bill, photos: Audi Club North America We've shown the upcoming RS 3 Sportback several times and the sedan once but while the Sportback has gradually shed its camouflage, the sedan is still heavily covered as seen here. The sedan is not as production ready as the Sportback but rest assure, we expect more photos from our photographers of the sedan as it does its camouflage strip tease. Enjoy. Audi RS 3 Sportback Test Mule Spied Spy P...

Round 3: Audi Q5 Sportback Spotted on the Ring

[gallery link="none" columns="1" size="full" ids="49767"] words and photos: Audi Club North America Our spy photographer has captured the Q5 Sportback again...this time turning some laps at the Nürburgring. 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...

Facelift SQ5 Spied

[gallery link="none" columns="1" size="full" ids="49037"] Audi revealed the new Q5 last week but didn't show us the SQ5 but our spy photographers caught it without camouflage. The front bumper has some more aluminum details as have the rear view mirrors. At the back, we see the S typical quad exhaust pipes with a smaller diffuser between them. [gallery link="none" columns="1" size="full" ids="49042"] As we can see the lower part of the rear bumper is also framed in by some aluminum trim. Other...

Audi Q5 Sportback Spied Again

[gallery link="none" columns="1" size="full" ids="49019"] Audi revealed the new Q5 last week but they seem to have left out something...like the sportier Q5 Sportback. We showed spy photos of the Sportback about a month ago and our spy photographers spotted it again. We could see this version make its debut in the 4th quarter of 2020. For right now, enjoy the photos.

Spy Photos: First Photos of the Audi Q5 Sportback

[gallery link="none" columns="1" size="full" ids="47817"] Audi is working on a facelift for the Q5 as there have been prototypes seen running around for awhile but in addition to a refreshed look, there is a new body style. What you see here is the first photos of the Audi Q5 Sportback.

[gallery link="none" columns="1" size="full" ids="47535"] The Audi e-tron GT is based on the same platform as the Porsche Taycan and will most likely also share the same battery capacity. When the concept was...
