I still think the A8 is one of the most beautiful cars ever made...simple elegant lines, followed by chiseld sections and swooping roof lines that will look good 20 years from now...
that is his most beautiful car ever. A5...hmmm still growing on it.
please please dont start hating me, but I found it weird that de silva said this was his masterpiece....

ever made by Audi, but I like the shots of the S5. I'm sure that I'll like it even more when I see it on the road or at the dealer. I'm having trouble finding the standard A5 w/o the S-Line package very appealing.

I think the A8 is a fantastic car as well. When I first saw an A8 I knew that this car brand was for me. Fom then on it was my favorite brand and still will be forever. Every Audi has something special to it, no two seem the same to me, they all have such extreme detail which most people don't see or appreciate, from the headlight and taillight designs down to the individual stitches, just look closely, they are a work of art. Thats what makes them so special in my opinion. I think the A5 and S5 look fantastic though with the LEDs, curves and other details. I couldn't say what my favorite design is, I love them all to be honest, but I would have to say I probably prefer the S and RS models designs.

already done when he joined Audi. De Silva is credited with the A6, Q7, R8, and new TT.

I think R8, A6, TT, Q7, then A5 from best looking to worst with regards to the De Silva designed cars. If you look at the evoltuion of Audi design after the departure of Schreyer, you can see that bauhaus clean was replaced with more elemental designs, especially with the Q7.
2nd that the A8 is one of the best-looking cars Audi has produced.

I just had to stick up for the C6 S6! ;)
I love the A8, but the C6, especially with the S trim is also a winner. Makes the E, 5 series, GS, M35, etc. all look dated and/or less elegant.
