Default 2018 Audi A8

The 2018 Audi A8 has been spied. Typical of recent Audi design, it looks underwhelming and crook:

Definitely true. I don't see the A8 as a serious attempt by Audi to compete with the S Class. If they leveraged the Panamera and gave the A8 styling that distinguished it from the A3, they would have a shot.

Given Audi's "meet the new car that looks 100% like the old car" design ethic, the A8 should continue to lag severely in sales behind the S Class.
