    Somehow I(/we) missed this one - sorry!

    Actually, the background image rotates now and then, so it could be one of a few cars.

    Probably the most eye-catching of those which appear (so the one I imagine you might be asking after?) is the R18 e-tron quattro...

    Nice car, but wrong one.

    It looks like a new a4 type car. Big trapezoid grill with thin lights.

    Ahhhh. I was going with headlights for the R18 - one of the backgrounds has a cluster quite prominently in the top left corner of the site.

    I think I'm getting warmer now :) New generation TT?...

    Yes, I think it is the A7 with LED lights - looks very nice, although its great proportions are helped by it's unwieldy size on uk roads.

    with your pictures - the A7 daytime pictures don't match the same car as the dark picture with LEDs on - the headlights are different as are the wing mirrors. You sure that is an A7?

    I'm fairly sure it is an A7, and the apparent difference in the line of the light is either 1) down to reflection in that lower piece, or 2) the difference between rendering and fabrication.

    I can only see the new TT and the A7 with the grille quite as angular as it is - and badge positioning puts the TT out (for starters); the rest of the current crop do have the trapezoid shape, but it's more subtle than on those too; and certainly whatever it is has quite a wide stance [*washes mouth out with soapy water*].

    A reverse image search on the one we use as a background seems to have an A7 bias in the results (I'd root through the press release images, but it's rather a big pile!).

    I'm sure there's an A3 on there with its angry eyebrow DRL's ?
