Maxime de Keiser has some amazing ideas up his sleeve, and a vision to match.
A futuristic, low and somewhat brutal aesthetic rules his style – which you might know from his DeTomaso Mangusta Legacy.
He dubs this concept the Audi C8 and notes its inspiration from the Audi Type C of the 1930s, which is totally valid. But the interest for these eyes is two-fold:
— we have no idea what the next R8 will look like; only that it is coming soon. Perhaps at Paris this Fall.
— Truly, Mr. De Keisers’ ideas for this car seem like a better fit for a true flagship for the Audi brand. Something along the lines and proportions of the Bugatti Veyron — a place where Mr. De Keiser also draws inspiration.
