Sorry... but there is stylish yet agressive looks and then there is just plain over-doing it and shite... and this is the latter.

Looks like some chavs attempt at making their A4 look good...

Well it is only a prototype, which do tend to be a little more OTT than the actual model they end up producing.

Also with that power and torque, its into supercar teritory which is a license for wild styling - when was the last time anyone made a subtile supercar.... wink 500bhp is up there with the Lambo Gallardos and way past the power of the Ferrari F430.

This TDi version is also more powerful than the petrol version - going to be interesting to see how it drives the diesel engine is bound to be heavier, and good as modern diesels are, they just dont have the same crispness as a petrol car....
