    Our spy photographer sources have just sent us over a new set of shots of the R8 e-tron test mule of which a few photos surfaced yesterday. Photographers tell us this mule rounded the Ring quite quietly though we're checking to see if it was employing any of the e-sound elements that Audi...

We've seen A6 and A7 mules that we thought were RS mules before but there's no question about this Avant. Those bolstered fender flares are one easy spot but the other is a disguised fascia nearly...

Photographed at the roundabout near the track, this blacked-out Audi A1 would seem to be a dead giveaway of the existence of an RS 1 program. Those following the A1 story know the intel thus far...

    Okay, outwardly this Audi Q3 might not look particularly special. Sure, it's badged and kitted as an S-line and those B7 RS 4-design wheels painted black in the centers is interesting... but were you just see a photo of this car you might not be overly interested. Take a closer look though and...

    One thing is sure about this menacing-looking Q5 spied testing at the Nurburgring this week, it's not from Audi. LB plates (meaning Ludwigsburg) denotes the car originates from Porsche just in case the blacked-out Cayenne wheels didn't tip you off. What you're looking at is the latest test mule...

    When Tom Kristensen went and broke Jacky Ickx's all-time wins record at the 24 Hours of Le Mans, the Dane earned his nickname "Mr. Le Mans". One might note there is no current "Mr. Nurburgring", but Audi Sport regular Timo Bernhard is working on it thanks to his win this past weekend at the...

    We've just added to our 2011 24 Hours of Nurburgring photo gallery with a collection of shots form the ADAC 24h Classic vintage race. As is typical of the grid for the 24h main event, the grid for the classic was an eclectic mix of metal and alloy. For Audi fans, we noted a thin mix that...

    Remember that test mule we ran just yesterday, the one we thought might be an S4 Avant? We cross-posted that story to our B8 S4 forum and may have been quickly schooled by a few of our readers. And their theories were solid, solid enough for us to take a second look and likely agree with them...

    As is common with a new test mule, there've been quite a few news outlets offering different sets of shots of the car. In the case of yesterday's B8 RS 4 Avant, this has certainly been the case. We reported on a set from MotorAuthority last night and ran our own set early this morning. Now...

    AlVolante.it has published a set of photos of what is believed to be an Audi S7 test mule running laps at the Nurburgring. Why an S7? Note the quad exhaust tips at the rear and a mechanical spoiler on the rear decklid. Both are great indicators. AlVolante has a whole set of photos that are worth...
