no, but Audi needs to pick up their game. The A4/A6/A8 and the S variants all look exactly the same. from a distance, its very hard to distinguish. I wouldnt want to be driving around a $110k S8 and have it mistaken for an A4.

I considered the S8 but decided against it for this very reason.

I just looked at a 2013 S7. Very very hard to tell the difference between it and an S-line. Sticker price was a portly $96k. That is with no dealer mark up.

Also, is it true that the S8 has the same engine as the S7 but just tuned? I believe it puts out another 100 or so HP.

Very true.
I'm finding Audi turning more and more into Porsche design wise. It's getting harder and harder to tell their models apart.
I won't be surprise the next gen A4 look exactly like the current A4 but with new headlights.
*googling came up with this rendering lol:

Even Audi themselves has said that their models look too much alike.. I read an article not long ago where they said that the new models will differ more from each other.

The A5 models (A5/S5/RS5) and A7 models (A7/S7/RS7) look quite a bit different from the A4, A6, and A8.

The two Audi cars that I like the most are the S5 (I own one), and the RS7 that was just announced. I wouldn't have bought the M5 if the RS7 was available!
