Default Audi A7 - CLS Eater!

Hey guys, heres a concept of what i think Audi's version of the CLS should look like, I drew lots of inspiration from the R8 and A5, hence the slight flow of the sholder line and the aggressive front end with the slanted lights. The car would be powered by 3 engines - the 3.0TDi, 4.2 V8 FSi(S7) and the V12 TDi(RS7).
Hope you guys like! Please feel free to leave comments and crits. Thanks!!

You have some serious skill !

Seriously though, you fixed so many issues with Audi to bring it up to almost perfection! Firstly, I think Audi would look better with the emblem on the hood for all models like you did. It's modern, and a refreshing change. You also gave the headlights a different shape because at the moment while Audi always has great assemblies with LEDS, the actual unit is always the same rectangle shape.

I would make a few tweaks but its great to see this effort from you.

Infact the low nose and headlights remind me of the C-XF concept of the Jag XF. Looks hot!

Man! That is reallly cool!! I just love the shape of the hood and the way you have made the front wings blend into the headlights. If only the designers at Audi had enough brains to just turn their current headlight design upside down like this....;) I love your shading technique too! :thumbsup: The detailing on the wheels is tops!
And as a CLS rival its a cool new concept for Audi too.

Not bad man, watch your perspective though, the car seems as if its curving away towards the back. I think the perspective in the far wheel is too much making it seem that way. Usually there is only about 15 degrees difference between the front and rear wheel when they are vanishing like that but it varies. Also watch the top of your windshield, it goes to a different vp than the rest of the front. That said, apart from the perspective issues, this is a pretty good sketch. Props man.

Looks great mate, very very good effort, the front in particular is my best bit. Unfortunately i doubt Audi will go into that much differentiation from their other models..i mean when they can just use LED's to play around with the front why spend more money huh? (so sad and dumb)

Yes ? Mercedes CLS, ring any bells? A car that dominates another car (eats?)
