Default Do you think that's what it is? The B8 A4 concept? Looks sweet... better than the B7...

no offence Tanner!

Default Does look good

Supposively Audi will be using some sort of "modular longitudinal component system" (MLB) with the B8 which is already used in the A6/A8 (if the translation is right) and the transmission and differential (which I assume is the torsen diff) will be swapped around thus bringing the engine back. Not sure how that's going to work (trying to visualize it) but it's suppose to reduce the overhang by 15cm.

Overally, it looks like it has a shape that originated as a coupe and two extra doors were added.

Default When is the B8 coming out?

Doesn't this pics hurt the sale of the B7?? Cause this prototype looks so cool!!

I'm getting one for sure.
