It looks like a bad Chinese copy of the original :(

You can tell by the way they shot the vid that even Audi doesn't like the look of it much - no chance for the camera to linger. A long wait for not much.

One positive is that the front is more squared off and less feline which gives it a better stance. But I think that Audi are going to take the 911 style evolutionary approach with the R8 and try and build some long term identity for the car. Personally I think they should go the opposite way and use it as a techno showcase and a new style forerunner for the bread and butter models, which would allow them to get a bit more radical with the car…then again we are talking about Audi so the chances of that are propably slim!

Im not unimpressed, but it looks mostly like an update than a new model. but they have done that with most of the lineup. Its a winning formula for lower range sales. If your a4 or TT etc looks like the flagship model, it will sell more of them.

I dont like it at all.
The old one looks more like a supercar than the new one.
This looks too much like an A4 with a body kit.

The old one seems to have been around for 15 years, and they go and replace it with a slightly more boring version of the same thing.

Here's one on the road. I'm liking it now. The brochure on the UK website has some lovely pics in it too.
