Audi Q5 Facelift Spyshots

The Audi Q5 was first revealed in 2008 and now the engineers from Ingolstadt are finalising the face lifted Q5.

The front is getting most work sporting new headlights and a restyled front bumper with the chrome grill getting the corner chamfer similar to the recently unvailed RS4.

The front grill is also rumoured to have the hexagonal pattern but this isn’t the case on this prototype just the very lazy camouflage around the detailed chamfers.

We also think the interior is getting some improvements around the centre cluster as this was heavily covered up in the photos.

The original Q5 debuted at the Beijing Auto Show which begins again in April, that may be a bit too soon for Audi so perhaps we may see it at the Paris Motor Show later in the year.

Aston Martin one 77 Test Mule AKA “Dirty Shirly” Spotted at the Nuerburgring

The Aston Martin One-77 test mule was undergoing some hot laps over at the Nordschleife in Germany brandishing the pet name “Dirty Shirly” and a tally of 14 mysterious activities done to this voluptuous piece of British Engineering.

The super-expensive British supercar has been teased and teased and now dons the name of some high class hooker, Aston Martin have set up a dedicated website for the most powerful production Aston Martin ever, which can still be found at www.one-77.com.

Carrying a base price of a cool EU 1 million and headed for final production in a limited run of only 77 units, the One-77 is undoubtedly targeted at the type of attention-seeking car customer probably not too affected by the global economic recession currently gripping the auto industry as a whole.

The One-77 carries a 6.0 liter V12 tightly based on the powerplants used in the V12 Vanquish and newer V12 Vantage, but reengineered completely for this application to produce more than 700 horsepower. Aston Martin says the One-77 was developed with DTM series race cars in mind, and if the new supercar proves as capable on the road as it looks on paper, those 77 examples should be snapped up real quick.

Rumour has it that Aston have allready sold 10 units to a mysterious buyer from the middle eastern market for a cool 12 million GBP.

All we can say Dirty Shirly knows how to strut her stuff and worth stuffing a note or two in to its suggestive vents and this wont sell the story to the News of the World.
