They look much better in person than in photos and they look great from above. Even in car-crazy southern California I have only seen a handful. I could do without the midsection stripe but that's life.
Truth be told I would have loved a mid-engined TTS instead, because the ultra-secret, ultra-canceled Group S and the TT look so similar whereas the Group S and the R8 don't share quite the same look -- this leaves me with an R8 looking wrong and a TT with the motor in the wrong end.
Someone have Ingolstadt notify me when they fix that.
