Default Guess what I saw...

Was on a road trip back from Pennsylvania when I caught this filling up at a gas station off the Ohio Turnpike.

Crazy random find (especially since we were about 300 miles from Detroit). The thing was production-level finish, and seemed to be running without a hitch. Unfortunately it got back on the highway before we could catch it again, and it sped away pretty quicky.

Yes i was going to say it looks quite different in those live shots. Honestly it reminds me of 80's depictions of futuristic cop cars such as the ones found in Robocop for example lol. Can't say it looks impressive here though, a bit old fashioned IMO

^ I see what you mean, it looks a lot more toned-down in the live shots.

Reminds me of Honda Insight from the rear, actually.

Quite a find, JBlair, I could see where this would get a thread of it's own. In general, there's nothing like spotting an all-new vehicle on the roads for the first time! This, of course, would included a cladded mule on the roads.

Hmm I was on a trip to Penn this weekend myself...spent several hours on the turnpike. Were you ever passed by a red Audi at a very high rate of speed?
