    My aunt and uncle had the previous gen version of that had a superchaged awd platform. One of the fastest, sleekest and stylish stock rides I have seen ever.

    Looks alright. Better than the new 7 series (which I see as bland) and the LS, but not quite up to the A8. (Note, I'm just evaluating looks)

    Yeah Liquid the current ones do look VERY sleek. Also yeah it had the 420hp supercharger which is still a phenomenal engine.

    lol ozone the A8 is up for redesign soon, im just hoping they dont mess up the formula(they probably won't).

    Looks like a knock-off of the Bentley Continental.

    Yeah, the new A8 looks pretty good.

    And I can see somewhat of a resemblance to the Continental with some of the lines, grill, and rear quarters. Both British, so similar styling isn't unexpected.

    yeah but its very interesting you mention that. There is a "4 door" A5/S5 and it is REALLY sleek. I think they should bring that instead. Though nothings wrong with having both :)

    Looks pretty cool, I guess it will take a bit before my eyes adjust to the styling.

    One way or another, I would take a Mercedes S-class over any other car in this tier.

    i dunno...i'd have to go with the lexus LS. i mod every car i own, so one thing i always consider when buyin my next car is how it'll look when i'm done modding. i was seriously thinkin about buyin a used s550 when it first came out, but none of the kits could compare to the 'job design' kit for the LS.
