Not the S8, because the S8 for this generation has already been covered here. (See that vote count? Let's get that back too)

Nonetheless, this is a sweet car that gets a cool from me. You could get one with a W12!

This really is a car I shouldn't like. It is a boring shape, with every line and detail playing it very safe. However it works. It does look classy and understated. Add to that the interesting aluminium construction and it just nudges a cool.

BTW the drivetrain designation is wrong as there were FF version available in some markets (including a V8)

I love this era of Audi styling. The RS6, the TT, this. They were all great.

Also, W12. W12s are cool.

As cool a concept as the W12 is, Audi only manged to sell 750 of them and it was only available in Europe and Asia.

Such a classy looking design, both when and new and now. Definitely helped to establish Audi as just as luxurious as BMW, Mercedes, and Jaguar. Cool.

A car that's so understated, elegant and effective that has aged quite well (I can't believe it's from 1994, it looks like a car from the very late '90s in some ways) should be at least cool, in my book.
