I'm actually struggling to understand how this is possible because this isn't based on the old A6 platform but the latest MLP which shifts the front wheels forward a full 160mm.

The little-wheel/big-tire effect is not doing the look any favors either....

If you look where the front axle is, you can still see a huge amount of overhang, but compared to Audis of past, as Foot mentioned, it's considerably better.

Oogolay.

I hate it when automakers build cars like this. Then I hate it even worse when stupid fat American with bad taste go buying these monstrosities designed for 6 kids and 4 dogs to be stuffed into.
