Audi Inspired BMW R8 Appears on the Street

Fresh from the "what were they thinking" department, an Audi R8 has been photographed (or photoshopped) wearing BMW badges.

The Russian-owned R8 has been completely stripped of all Audi logos. Redubbed the BMW 850i, the car has BMW badges on the hood, engine cover, and rear fascia. While we aren't sure what to make of this, it's clearly odd to say the least. On the bright side, it's a real R8 instead of a creepy replica based on a Mercury Cougar.

We always knew Audi had an inferiority complex, but apparently some of their customers do too.
