    You'd need to be able to go fast if your car looked that ugly. Talk about a bad plastic surgery job; that front end looks terrible.

    I must say, i do like the new RS4 in white.

    There's an RS4 avant near me with black wheels and it looks the nuts.

    Why spends so much and let it all down with a nasty grill and wonky exhaust. Bet it goes well though.

    The front grill reminded me of a photoshops preview I saw a while ago on what the new B6's front might look like (before it was launched). The only difference being I reckon the photoshopped version looked better.

    I wonder what performance figures she gives.

    I guess it wasn't meant to look pretty - the car must have been dismantled after they'd run their tests.

    Just purely for R&D.

    It was probably registered way before the conversion. Bear in mind, a new car is usually supplied with a year's road tax.

    Though, if the car was tested in a private facility, and dismantled shortly after, it wouldn't have needed to have the new engine details ammended.

    I seem to remember seeing those pictures or similar in Auto Express years ago with a strapline along the lines of "S4 to get V8 power to beat M3"...

    looks like they needed the nose job to get the engine to fit?
