I agree with you, but Porsche people are on thin ice with that particular comment.

While MB wastes time trying to re-invent the 911.

Audi once again produces a car that is both unique and stunning.

Take note Mercedes.......this is how it's done.

Sadly, I feel both the frontend and backend of the new R8 are dramatically boring compared to the previous (current) R8.

Hoping it'll grow on me.

R8's do nothing for me for some reason.

Disappointed in the new R8's looks. Love the engine specs for it but Audi's new design language is just boring.

I remember when the first R8 came out it wowed the masses. This one hasn't had that same response.

I really like the R8 but could not ever really accept that added contrast piece down the side it looked so out of place.

It's a beautiful car, no doubt, but like the TT, all things Audi converge as generations go by..... For me it is the divergent design of the originals that make me stop in my tracks... The new R8 styling is great but only in a clean predictable way.... Šhame

Put me firmly in the "disappointed" camp in this new R8 as well. Audi could've, and should've, gone farther with this. I'm sure it'll perform well though.

new R8 looks like it took some styling cues from the new vette ... which thinks its a transformer - robots in disguise ... design by [email protected]
