audi_a8_iii_ttac_01_01_02.jpgHerr A8 is the last vehicle in the Audi line-up that's still displaying the “old” styling. In a strange way, it doesn’t look that old at all. Although I’m not an Audi fan, I always had respect for their flagship. It is so elegantly simple, with somehow atemporal aesthetics. And that is something that clearly differentiates it from the current competitors (See Bangled 7-Series and Maybacized S-Class). But consumers are slaves to fashion. Sooner or later, even naturally beautiful designs get “seasoned." We can only hope that the evolution of the A8 will be harm-free. In my little prediction of the Herr von Ingolstadt the Third I kept the original proportions (which are just perfect) and carefully applied some year 2010 make-up, trying not to lose the character of the original. I struggled not to make it look like an artificially increased A4. An original touch: lowering the Audi trapeze grille so that the underide will look like part of the spoiler. For the rest of the details, I’ll allow the image to speak for itself.
