When is an Audi TT an Audi R8? Despite what Afzal Kahn may render in his English workshop, the answer is never. But if you've got the bucks, you can get pretty close. At least visually.
When it was introduced at the Paris Auto Show in 1978 the BMW M1 was the first mid-engine vehicle BMW had ever built. 33 years later, the low production M1 is the only mid-engine vehicle the company has ever built.

Audi will produce a few hundred copies of a $285,000 Q7 for Russian customers and $136,000 R8 for the United Arab Emirates, because the phrase "tape job" hasn't been fully translated yet.
