One car we’ve been following very closely is the all-new Audi A8. There’s a multitude of reasons for this but here’s the two primary factors: 


1) The A8 will mark the beginning of the eagerly anticipated Marc Lichte era of design — it’s said to be far more emotional and take the four rings to an all-new, provocative level. 


2) We’re confident the A8 will debut a slew of Audi’s latest, ground-breaking technology. 


The initial spy shots we’ve seen, however, don’t seem to paint the picture we were hoping for. That’s because the camouflaged monster looks like a slightly warmed over current-gen A8. While we were expecting something significant it’s just not there and it lacks panache. 


Well, flash forward to present day. All-new images have surfaced on the net and we’re a bit curious: Do YOU think it depicts a STUD or a DUD?


In addition, do YOU see ANY design cues from other luxury automakers right now? Is this a GOOD or a BAD thing?
