Now, though, according to Gizmag, the V8-powered hypercar is close to being finished, and deliveries may commence as early as the end of this year or in the beginning of 2014. The car, which is designed to be the fastest in the world, comes with a newly developed 423 cu.in. (6.9-liter) twin turbo V8.
When one's mind turns toward performance Audi's, initial thought usually conjures up images of the glorious Quattro's from the 80's, R8's and countless hyper luxury cars carrying the famous 'RS' designation. I'll be the first to admit for having a soft spot for them – especially the now superseded ballistic twin-turbo V10 RS6 (and gosh how I'd trade in my family for one of those too).

It has had its ups and downs over the years, but Mercedes-Benz's S-Class series has withstood the test of time and every new version that comes out is the car to beat in the full-size luxury sedan segment.
Mercedes won't have it any other way with the all-new W222-codenamed S-Class that was nabbed by our scoop photographers with very minimal camouflage – only parts of the lights, the badges and the boot lid edge are covered up, allowing for a detailed view of the premium model.
Our first impression about the exterior design is that Mercedes went for a much cleaner and dare we say, sportier look for the new S-Class, which loses the chubby wheel arches and fussier details of the current W221 model adopting a swoopy profile that is very similar to that of the new compact CLA sedan, along with a sharper looking rear-end.
There's no need for scoop photos for the interior as Mercedes itself has released a number of official images that reveal a brand new cabin that pairs the latest available technologies such as the huge twin 12.3-inch screens for the instrument panel and the infotainment system above the center stack, with a curved design and a classic mix of high-quality materials and decorative trims.
The CS Concept is not the MG brand's only new car displayed in Shanghai, as the Chinese-owned British carmaker surprised us with a preview of its new MG3 supermini.
