How is ripping off the R8 innovative styling?
Interesting ... what do you think?
Introducing the Project Kahn Audi TR8
Bradford/England, May, 2011 – Having got his hands on an Audi A5 Coupe Sport and promptly transforming the vehicle into a visual icon, principal British Designer Afzal Kahn has decided to go one step further by introducing a sportier and aggressively smoother R8 style Audi TT.
And the result of Afzal Kahn’s flirtation with the Audi TT 2.0 FSI promises a powerful driving experience, taking the vehicle to a whole new dimension.
Ensuring improved interaction with a sense of power, performance and style, the Project Kahn Audi TR8’s silky, comprehensive outline finished in dark grey exudes elegance.
The innovative styling package is instantaneously decipherable and should satisfy those who prize comfort, style and all-weather capability.
On the outside, it looks immaculate. The body kit makes the TR8’s flawless lines continue: the new front and back vented bumpers in R8 look with mesh inserts, front grille, R8 style side blades, rear spoiler, stainless steel quad exhaust system, sports lowered suspension springs, front lower bumper lip in billet steel finish and door mirrors in a billet steel finish - draw you in like a guiding light.
Evolved through skilled artistic innovation and state-of-the art manufacturing and materials technology - our 20 -inch RSV alloy wheels exemplify what A. Kahn Design is all about: sophistication and accomplished artistic innovation.
Inside is a complete bespoke interior design service available to suit individual tastes. By buying a Project Kahn vehicle, you are given the opportunity to really make it your own – but the choice of the interior is at the discretion of the individual.
Project Kahn has a tradition of making super-sport versions of successful models. As one of the UK’s leading design houses, we recognise the importance of staying true to the original design themes of cutting edge luxury vehicles, while evolving them to achieve a new and dynamic appearance.

I'm absolutely certain I saw one of these at the Nürburgring about a month ago. My reaction was the same as joneze93's...

The R8 side blade is an abomination on this car! I also don't care much for the rear bumper or quad exhaust, but find the wing flows well with the rest of the car. The front bumper is very interesting and I'd like to see a few more pictures in better light and the wheels rock!
As an Ob/Gyn I expect that when you have 2 attractive parents, they're going to have a beautiful baby. Sadly, that isn't always the case.
Same thing here.

Ok, I'll try to be the counterpoint to group sentiment here - in a vacuum (i.e., if there was no such thing as an R8), I think it might be cool. Trying to so obviously copy the R8 with another, much cheaper car is a bit silly to anyone who is actually into cars, but then again, a lot of non-car people might actually *mistake* this for an R8, and if you're a person who intends that effect and/or doesn't car about being perceived as a poseur by people in the know, I guess this is just what you need.
The TT is an absolutely beautiful car in its own right - I still get strangers approaching to ask me about the TTS and tell me what a beautiful car it is, it's happened twice just this week and the car is a couple of years old. So trying to make the TT look just like a different car, and a vastly more expensive car at that, seems misguided and poseur-ish to *me*, but I acknowledge that not everyone thinks this way. For those guys who would put a TTS or RS badge on a base TT, this might be even better.
