The Audi R8's won a lot of admiration for its avant-garde styling, and those side blades are perhaps the supercar's most interesting styling feature. One owner, however, evidently wasn't satisfied with the carbon-fiber or aluminum finish, so he came up with a different approach that's considerably more... down to Earth.

The image comes to us courtesy of MotorMorph.com, and love it or hate it, you've got to admit the wood panel looks better than the plastic ones did on those Chrysler minivans from your childhood. Now, there's no guarantees that this isn't just a crafty Photoshop job, and because of that, we'll cross our fingers in the hope that this example of hilarious blasphemy isn't out roaming the streets.

      That picture was taken at the 24 hours of LeMons even, not this past year but the year before. I think the car came with a team from the NY Auto Club. The had a LeMon Pledge themed all wood grain e30 if i remember correct. I think it was just stick-on wrap style vinyl stuff.

      Paint the car and the rims white add some of the same woodgrain touches in the interior and a tad whiter wood and maybe you have something nice. Let me remind of the maybe factor here!

      That is silly, reminds me of the old school station wagons with wood panels.
      I feel like a carbon fiber piece would look good on that Audi.

        I realize it's a little off topic..... I think that saying every time I see the Pep Boys porthole stickers on non-Buick cars. I hate those damn things.

      This is a good idea, but terrible execution. Terrible color combination.
      • 4 Years Ago
      I don't think it looks so bad. would be classy if they carried the same grain into the interior.

        I don't like it, but I am surprised that I am not totally disgusted by it. I guess after seeing so many abominations done to nice cars by sheiks in the middle east I am just scarred for life and totally desensitized to big money tawdriness.
