Exterior looks almost exactly like the VW Phateon, interior doesn't even look as good as the A6. Looks like Audi missed the design target by a wide mark again... At least it looks to drive well for a large car.
I've been hesitating to change my bimmer for a recent but used A8... guess this is the moment to do it because the prices of those beauties will drop now.
The A8 was a timeless masterpiece... from an exterior design point of view the new model is a quantum leap... backwards. Too many different elements at the front mainly. The interior looks great though.
I agree, the previous version of the A8 was sweet. Just looked rock-solid and loved the rear rectangular taillight treatment. This new rev seems to borrow elements from the Honda Civic tail lamps! :thumbdwn:
Audi also came out with their own I-Drive, called MMI for Multimedia Interface which sounds like something that belongs in my PowerBook.
I would think the S8 prices would fall as well. If you haven't seen the S8 in action, check out the flick Ronin, where they put it good use.
