2019 Audi A1 Scooped Playing In The Snow 8

Posted by Michael Gauthier in audi, Audi A1, Audi Scoops, Scoops on 01 8th, 2018


Work continues on the 2019 Audi A1 as spy shooters have snapped the model undergoing cold weather testing.

Set to battle the Mercedes A-Class, the A1 has a familiar design but adopts a new front fascia with a wider grille that echoes recent models such as the A4 and A8. The five-door hatchback has also been equipped with new headlights and restyled mirrors which are now mounted to the A-pillar.

Moving further back, we can see designers kept the strong character lines and added more muscular rear fenders. The rear doors also appear longer than before and this suggests the A1 will grow in size and offer additional rear seat legroom.

The rear of the car is pretty evolutionary but the model features a new tailgate and wraparound taillights. We can also see a tailgate-mounted spoiler and a rakish rear window.

Little is known about the car but the cabin is expected to equipped with improved technology including an updated MMI infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility. Drivers can also look forward to an optional digital instrument cluster with a 12.3-inch display.

Engine options remain unconfirmed but previous reports have suggested the model will be offered with an assortment of different powertrains including a turbocharged 1.0-liter three-cylinder that produces around 113 hp (84 kW). The A1 could also be equipped with a turbocharged 1.5-liter four-cylinder and a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder that develops approximately 250 hp (186 kW) in the S1.

All-New Audi RS7 Sportback Test Mule Can’t Escape The Camera Lens 15

Posted by Sergiu Tudose in audi, Audi RS7, Audi Scoops, Hybrids, Scoops on 12 15th, 2017


With Audi’s new-generation A7 Sportback already unveiled, the next logical step for Ingolstadt is to roll out the range-topping RS7.

The new RS7 is tipped to hit Audi’s showroom doors sometime in late 2018 and will most likely powered by a 4.0-liter twin-turbocharged V8 with over 600 HP.

Rumor has it that a hybrid version using a similar drivetrain as the Porsche Panamera Turbo S E-Hybrid sporting as much as 700 HP could also join the range, but that remains to be seen.

Visually, this mule is a dead giveaway for the RS7 Sportback. Despite it saying ‘A7’ and ‘TFSI quattro’ on the hatch, you can see the wheel arch extensions as well as the large oval exhaust tips that show this is no ordinary A7.

Since this is a test mule and not a true prototype that’s hiding its styling under heavy camo, we can expect to see more styling changes to the production car, such as a sportier rear diffuser and chunkier front bumper, for example.

With Mercedes dropping the CLS 63 nameplate on their latest generation car, the all-new RS7 will find itself in a fight against the Mercedes-AMG GT 4 come 2019.

Audi E-Tron Looks To Electrify The Booming Crossover Segment 14
Dec
Posted by Michael Gauthier in audi, Audi Scoops, Electric Vehicles, Scoops on 12 14th, 2017


Audi is preparing to launch an onslaught of electric vehicles and the company’s upcoming E-Tron Quattro was recently spotted undergoing testing in Europe.

Previewed by the E-Tron Quattro concept, the production model has a familiar design but adopts a less dramatic front fascia. Moving further back, we can see plastic body cladding, a rakish windscreen, and slender mirrors with integrated turn signals. Designers also installed roof rails and a gently sloping roofline which meets a tailgate-mounted spoiler.

Speaking of the rear of the crossover, we can see a heavily raked window and a relatively upright tailgate. Other notable features include LED taillights and no exhaust system.

The E-Tron Quattro will go into production next year at the company’s plant in Brussels, Belgium. Audi hasn’t said much about the crossover but previously stated it will slot in between the Q5 and Q7. It also promises to deliver an intoxicating blend of “sportiness, driving dynamics and efficiency.”

Performance specifications remain unconfirmed but the concept had three electric motors which could temporarily produce 496 hp (370 kW) and over 590 lb-ft (800 Nm) of torque. This enabled the all-wheel drive concept to accelerate from 0-62 mph (0-100 km/h) in 4.6 seconds before hitting a limited top speed of 130 mph (210 km/h). Furthermore, the crossover had a range in excess of 310 miles (500 km) and could be recharged in as little as 50 minutes.

Revised 2018 Audi TT Coupe Proves That Rally Lights Go With Everything 7
Dec
Posted by Michael Karkafiris in audi, Audi Scoops, Audi TT, Scoops on 12 7th, 2017


Following our previous scoop on the facelifted TT RS, our spies caught a regular TT prototype being tested in cold-weather conditions, wearing the traditional pair of projector lights.

The Audi TT will receive a mid-life update sometime next year, focusing more on adding the latest technologies the firm has to offer.

The limited amount of camouflage on the prototype also means that you shouldn’t expect any major visual changes; just the usual refresh of the LED lights, along with some small tweaks on bumpers, side sills and a new pattern for the mesh grille design.

The cabin will be updated of course with Audi’s latest tech features, including the newest version of the Virtual Cockpit digital instrument cluster, as well as new trim and color options. Audi’s semi-autonomous systems will also debut in the TT as well.

As for the engines, there’s really not much too talk about; Audi will keep the current range on offer, including the regular 2.0-liter TFSI and TDI units while there are some reports talking about the introduction of the VW Group’s 1.5-liter TSI engine as a new base model. The range-topping TT RS will stick with the 2.5-liter turbo five-cylinder unit.

The revised version of the popular Audi TT is expected to hit the European market in 2018.

Scoop: Facelifted Audi TT-RS Will Not Mess With A Winning Formula 5

Posted by Michael Karkafiris in audi, Audi Scoops, Audi TT, Audi TT-RS, Scoops on 12 5th, 2017


Audi is working on the mid-life update of the TT, with the first spy shots showing a TT-RS roadster being tested on public roads.

You wouldn’t expect Audi to mess too much with the successful design of the current TT and you would be right: the small patches of camo tape around the car lead us to believe that Audi will most certainly keep the visual changes to a minimum.

Expect to see new lighting signatures on lights all around in order to bring the TT in line with Audi’s latest products, as well as subtle tweaks and changes on body parts like the front grille, side sills and bumpers.

Inside, the updated TT will also receive some updates, with Audi to use the latest version of their Virtual Cockpit along with the latest infotainment features, as well as new trim options and colors.

The engine range will remain more or less the same, with the range-topping RS version keeping the characteristic 2.5-liter five-pot unit which in the current models produces 395hp (400PS) and 354lb-ft (480Nm) of peak torque.

The facelifted range of the Audi TT is expected to debut in 2018, so stay tuned for more info in the coming months.

All-New 2019 Audi A6 Spotted With Production Lights – No, Not Those… 1
Dec
Posted by Michael Karkafiris in audi, Audi A6, Audi Scoops, Scoops on 12 1st, 2017


The winter test season is here and our spies caught the 2019 Audi A6 wearing its final production lights.

However, don’t get your hopes up because these don’t include the set of projectors mounted on the roof. Compared to the already introduced A7, the new Audi A6’s LED headlights appear to adopt a diffent, more basic style while the rear ones look predictably similar.

Also, and despite the camouflage tape hiding it, the rear end is expected to feature an LED stripe between the taillights, similar to those found in the A8 and of course the A7.

The combination of the slimmer headlights with the wider grille makes the new A6 look wider and lower than the current generation, spicing up a little bit the evolved but familiar lines.

Audi’s latest tech features will be present, including the 48-volt electrical architecture, safety systems and semi-autonomous capability. By the time it arrives at dealerships, the new Audi A6 is expected to offer more advanced tech than its main rivals, which includes the Mercedes E-Class and the BMW 5-Series.

Traditionally Audi will offer the new A6 in both sedan and Avant bodystyles, while the popular Allroad version is expected to join the range a few months after its market launch. Expect to see the new Audi A6 making its first appearance in 2018.

New Audi Q8 Sounds Awfully Quiet On The Nurburgring 3
Nov
Posted by Cristian Gnaticov in audi, Audi Q8, Audi Scoops, Audi Videos, PHEV, Scoops, video on 11 3rd, 2017


Audi is getting ready to put an end to the BMW X6 and Mercedes-Benz GLE Coupe segment domination by working on their very own “SAV” or coupe crossover, dubbed the Q8.

Caught on the Nurburgring, this prototype continues to keep its camo vinyl wraps on almost its entire body, unlike the one scooped last month that was more eager to reveal some of its lines, most of which come from the Q8 Concept shown in Detroit earlier this year.

But while its exterior is inspired by the show car, inside, the new Audi Q8 resembles to the latest A8 flagship saloon, as it benefits from the same pair of touchscreen displays. The rest of the cabin is adorned with aluminum glossy black trims, and we also expect plenty of soft touch materials, meant to elevate its premium stance.

Audi’s MLB platform is the foundation stone for the new sports crossover, which uses aluminum and carbon fiber, and allows it to get a variety of powertrains. The rumor-mill has it adopting the tri-turbo 4.0-liter V8 diesel engine from the SQ7, a 48-volt PHEV making almost 470hp in the SQ8, and a twin-turbo V8 gasoline-powered unit that’s expected to be used in the RS version.

The automaker continues to keep the official reveal date close to its chest, but it’s expected to come out sometime next year, as a 2019MY.
