yikes! "Allroad" Quattro!

Ok, second thing I notice at the Audi web site:
The Audi "Alllroad Quattro"

And you thought the TT looked butt-ugly.

Probably of the mindset of "If you can't beat SUV's, join 'em"
(the other notable car maker to fall victim is Volvo.  The Volvo XC.  At
least it looks more like a normal car.  This allroad thing looks ass-ugly.)
Picture an A6 with chrome bars under the doors(for protection, of course)
with all the edges oversanded and the grill pulled taller+farther back.

That, and the leather is _green_(to match the green paint job, of course.)

Oh, and did I mention that they say in the press release:
"and the quattro permanent four wheel drive"...
four wheel drive?  Is this an effort to stoop to the low levels of dumb
americans who don't know what all-wheel drive is and need it simplified for

Everything about this car and the press release make me want to call up
Audi and scream:

Te audire non possum.  Musa sapientum fixa est in aure.
Ita, scio hunc 'sig file' veterem fieri.
