Presenting the new standard for batsh1t insane everyday cars - Audi R8 V12 TDi.

Detroit Auto Show: Audi R8 V12 TDI Live

738 lb/ft of torque *peaking* at 1750 RPM, people. 25 mpg. And the design is almost like a F430.
Imagine a Pete's box on it :P

Nope, apart from the general configuration, I don't think they look alike!

Speaking of all these imports, will the 181% import duty in india ever go down, its unfair for us to pay that amount to own the same cars everyone else can at less than half price worldwide....

If the question is about the best LOOKING car that can be of everyday use then I would say its Audi R8.THE BEST car that can be of everyday use? 911 turbo,M5 IMO.
I am not talking about India here since this is an international thread.
Best looking/practical car for everyday use depends on where you drive,how long is you drive and what you can afford.
