Looking like your Great Aunt Edna in a flowing muumuu, the 2009 Audi A7 camouflaging strategy has taken a turn for the hilarious. Instead of the traditional "tape and blocks," or "crazy looking vinyl decals," Audi has decided on "giant brown tarp with holes cut in it" as the easiest way to keep prying eyes off its new coupe/saloon. It may be good camo, but we can still glean a couple of details.

This is the first time we've gotten a look at any of the production sheet metal, albeit just tiny sliver at the B-pillar. Based on the brilliance of the camo, the only thing we can say is the car has five spoke wheels (for now), a dual exhaust, and is not slab sided. Those clever Germans. [Autobild]
