My problem with these shots, and for that matter all the shots coming out of VAG these days (and most other manufacturers) is the way they butcher the product using photoshop or similar.

I swear photoshop kills the emotion in the designs, kills the pop they have in person.

I agree, but altogether there are rarely any VAG deisgns nowadays that have a "pop", no matter in photo or flesh. Nice, blend in, but also bland and boring. Probably the current CC or Scirocco back in 2008 made turn my head last time....

For me, I'm just glad that Audi is keeping the NatuNaturally-Aspirated V10 engine.

This is a middle-finger to hippies and eco-terrorists out there

It would look much better if the scoops behind the doors were body color.

E-tron version. Manages to look a lot better, at least compared to the gasoline powered version IMO.

That etron version is sexy. Really shows how important the details are to make a car look distinct and complete as a whole. They used nearly the same shape from the last R8, but kept a lot of very similar details as well on the gas version (while also toning others down) so it doesn't have nearly the oomph the electric edition has.

I agree with the comments above, but it doesn't make this a home round. It's just better, not great.

Agreed on all accounts. I also have to say that whilst detailing can ruin a good design, it will never be able to save a mediocre one. Unfortunately, many designers nowadays think it could....
