The R8 doesn't do much for me, either...but then again, I generally don't like sports cars, so that's no saying much. I definitely don't like Audi's foray into the gaping maw look, which I've heard they did in part to appeal to Asian buyers.

I think I'll just stick with old-school wagons

The small Aston looks like a tailored dwarf. The old 911 looks really good right now, maybe the best it has ever looked since intro.
Ironically it is the sedans that seem to rule the world of taste at this point. The M5, the E63, the '09 Cadillac CTS V, and '08 Mitsubishi Evo MR all look great. The Corvette ZR1 looks good but I wouldn't go so far as to say great. Lots of wonderful choices out there but the R8 isn't one of them. My guess is that it will sell fairly well.
I don't think they look ugly Shane, just dull would do it!. They are nice to drive and have a meaty engine, but nice is not the word you want to use when it comes to what is suppose to be a supercar, beast or monster please ...but they are quite cheap at sub 100k.
