    Will have to see one in the metal until I make my mind up tbh

    Looks okay on first impressions though - not something I'd personally be looking to upgrade/spend my money on

    Defo have to see one in the metal, but first impressions are nice, especially the exhausts, looks very much like the A4 cab.

    Think it would be more one for the missus though :undwech:

    I was having doubts when I first saw the title, then I saw the pics, and glad it's based on the saloon version. Should be a looker on the road, but I'd still plump for the larger A5/S5 version personally.

    Agreed Jo, it does look better as its based on the saloon rather than the hatch.

    It looks good but I have never seen the point of cabriolet versions of high performance sports cars. More weight, less chassis rigidity, result, lower performance, less sporty handling and reduced cornering grip.

    Looks nice, Just as long as it hasn't got a cut off boot.
