As a fan of all things with four wheels I only wished that more companies were producing such beautiful machines, but alas only Audi seem to either have the balls to step out of their comfort zone or have an uncanny nak in knowing what people want.

Like when was the last time that BMW produced a car at 75K which had over a two year waiting list.

Front: http://i177.photobucket.com/albums/w...28/front-3.jpg
Side: http://i177.photobucket.com/albums/w...628/side-1.jpg
Rear: http://i177.photobucket.com/albums/w...628/rear-2.jpg

- painted the lips around the car to match the body.
- welded the front lip to give a more "complete" look to front bumper. It doesnt look bottomless now.
- painted rear diffuser black as it will be on production model.
- simplified exhausts.
- added licence plates

and there you have it - the production R8 V12. Looks great IMO

I like the R8, I really do, but I just can't get over the way it looks from the side.

Just my opinion, though.

I dunno. From some angles, all that mesh really looks overdone.

The roof air scoop is a major enhancement over the r8. I wonder if this has to do with the r8 mule that caught on fire.
