Audi has once again been spotted testing a prototype for its new RS 5 Avant, this time while it was lapping the Nürburgring. The test vehicle was heavily camouflaged, but the general shape of the new RS 5 Avant and some finer details like the intakes of the front fascia and the wide wheel arches could clearly be seen.

Despite a planned price tag of more than $325,000, the upcoming Ford Mustang GTD has managed to rack up more than 7,500 applications. Those applications are from interested buyers in the U.S. and Canada alone, as Ford plans a separate application for other markets.

Volkswagen's ID.7 will no longer reach the U.S. this year as originally scheduled. VW said changing market dynamics have led it to push back the release of the ID.7 in the U.S., but the automaker hasn't provided a new timeline for the electric hatchback's local launch.
