Theres nothing that looks Audi about this except for the rims. They sorta look like the S5's I think. Similar.

This car is ugly, but the interior is gorgeous. Audi/VW always make beautiful interiors.

Eh, maybe. I think the only thing similar exterior-wise would be the overall design of the lower rear bumper, and even then the similarity is minimal at best (the way the colored body panels overhang with the diffuser at the bottom).

I think it's hideous from the front and back. Side profile is nice. But I would much rather have an F430. Or even a 997 GT2.

As far as my favorite Lambo, I'd have to go with the Murcielago. It has gorgeous lines.

Well it's weird for me.^

Honestly I thought the pre "LP" Lambos lacked a lot in terms of details.

The LP640 looks worlds better than the previous Murci, and the pre LP Gallardo is actually ugly to me. It's really strange considering how close the designs are to each other (between pre/post LP).

This LP560 has so many little details in it that I can't help but love it. I'm a sucker for cars that manage to get all the little things right, as well as maintaining general consistency and flow.

+1 on everything. The only 1 thing I dont like is how linear the rear of the car is. Everything is perfectly in place. However, there are so many cool details on this car. Even look at the funk head/tail-lights. They are edging into the future. Very unique!

2008 E92 M3  [0.00]
F430 Scuderia - 400m: 11.6s 126.9mph(203km/h)

Gallardo LP560-4 - 400m: 11.4s 126.9mph(203km/h)

Could two cars be anymore evenly matched.

Personally I would chose the Lamborghini for five reasons.

1# German quality control compared to Italian.
2# I prefer to underdog which in this company it surely is.
3# AWD compared to RWD will mean being able to enjoy the car more of the time, regardless of weather conditions (not that I will ever have to opportunity).
4# Ferraris are for snobs who want people to know they are driving a Ferrari.

5# One's built by a f'ing tractor company, how cool is that.

What?!? IMO if you're looking for performance (sporty, handling, etc.), Ferrari is the way to go. Lambos are more of snobs' cars than Ferrari's.

The Gallardo LP560-4 looks too 'digital' .

The Audi R8 is futuristic AND organic. Much more convincing.

The R8 rocks!!!

If you were to include the R8 then I totally agree that it's in a different class to the others, visually. Though I doubt even with a V10 engine under the hood the Audi will match them for outright performance, but I does believe it will get pretty close in overal dynamics.
