That's pretty awesome...

I've been wanting to incorporate a roll cage into a car for years, but never did... Was thinking about doing a demolition derby car or something like that...

Despite the many holes in the bodywork, for which one cannot do much except building with System parts, you captured the look and character of the car very well.

When I squeeze my eyes to see the front unsharp, it clearly looks exactly like an Audi: the single frame grill, the lights... the "face" of the car just stands. I like the back too, where you used the bionicle eyes to create the actual look of the recent Audi models (A4, A6). Also I like that you've not ignored the bottom and used many black panels there.

Wow, excellent looking model! So many details here to look at.

Is there a picture from the back, without the body?

Brilliant Looks

Out of interest, is the rear suspension based on the real thing?

Great job once again Lipko. Do have an LDD file available? Were you planning on instructions or not?

Thanks for the comments. I'm not planning to make instructions but I will make a digital version for sure. The LDD file is almost done. This model is highly modular, so it will be much pretty easy to build even without instructions.

Today In the morning I drove through parking near Audi A5 and thought that it is almost impossible t o build such complex modern shapes, especially front end in LEGO.

...and now I see that i was wrong:) awesome Audi!!!I like its aggressive front, front and rear lights and "mouth" (grille frame). :)))
