These are the best spy pictures so far of the new Audi A8, which is set to be unveiled later this year.
The new A8 has been spied testing around the Nurburgring for several months, but until now it has always carried heavy disguise.
However, it is clear that the new A8 will use a weight-saving aluminium spaceframe and be around 10cm longer than the current model.
It is also expected to get a cleaner and more efficient range of engines, including 3.0-litre and 4.2-litre V8s.
Audi says the car will be unveiled in late autumn, rather than being shown at next month's Frankfurt motor show.
The new Audi A8 is expected to go on sale in the UK in early 2010.
