I agree Greg, although I suspect it will look a lot more striking in the flesh than pictures

Oh, and to put my tuppence on that RS6: It is stunning.
I get that the haters don't like nice stuff, but ive always liked aggressive looking cars.
Im one of the only people I know that doesn't particularly love the Lamborghini Muira because I think it looks like a girls car.

I don't think the RS6 looks that special, it's not awful (except the back, that's fcuking hideous) but I think the one TT had(has?) looked better...

Slightly off topic but I feel similar about the Huracan

That’s the first-gen Probe which was never sold here. I think anyone in the UK would think of Gareth Cheeseman’s car.

I used to agree until I saw one on the road. It came past me in London, closely followed by a blacked out Range, presumably rammed with armed Russian heavies. It was on the dc part of the A40 and I tried to undertake to get a better look but the Range swerved over to block me off.

Anyway it looked fcuking stunning. The rear 3/4 view I had made it look so powerful, low, wide and menacing.

The RS6 looks awesome from the front but terrible from the back. Agree with Aes, TTs was nicer.

The only thing wrong with how the RS6 looks is all the visible Audi design stuff. Current Audis look utterly horrid; crass and belligerent.

There's nothing wrong with the RS6 that isn't already wrong with an A6 TDI.

OK, a friend of mine is considering a Toyota CHR. I think it looks a bit busy. Are they any good?

Very dark inside due to the black headliner & tiny rear windows, a lot of the Uber type things over here are CHR's & the Honda equivalent and they are not a nice place to be a passenger.

My mate has just sold his Aventador and bought a hurracan performante...

He also let some youtuber review his GT-R and I wouldn't be surprised if the rozzers came knocking if they saw the footage!

Hammond is such a parody tubby goblin these days isn't he?

The car looks good. Packed with interesting tech that probably won't appeal to the people who sleep with one eye open.

Oh, and I helped* to build it.

I guess it's channeling Citroens of yore, like the Ami 8.

On the whole it probably shouldn't.

I see working civilian and military Land Rover Defenders every day because the route I drive for work takes me through the Brecon Beacons into rural Powys and unless LR are going to add a severely stripped down model to the range it seems to me that they’ve decided to exit the farmer’s workhorse market with the new Defender.

Hammond needs to buy his clothes in bigger sizes. Nothing makes someone look fatter than wearing clothes a size too small.

It looks like Toyota had a go at what Nissan did with their Figaro/Pao/S-Cargo retro cars but weren’t quite so successful.

That Toyota was part of a Japanese exercise called WiLL. It was around the Millennium and had various brands to target younger consumers.

It addition to that abomination you could but WiLL beer from Asahi, WiLL fax machines and microwaves from Panasonic and other WiLL things like holidays, stationary, air fresheners and chocolate.

And now you know.

'Bout 15 years ago I was in Cyprus and saw dozens of these things. One of the hire car companies had bought a load: the locals were grateful as it helped in identifying the drivers 'unused' to the Cypriot style of driving.
