I was looking at the A8 the other day trying to figure out why I find its sheet metal so appealing.  Big sedans like this can run the risk of looking like old-man transportation but I never get that sense with the A8, which comes across, to my eyes, as sleek and youthful and modern.

That gargantuan grille helps -- it's so clean and seamless, assertive without being too aggressive. Yeah, I think the grille is probably what seals the deal for me.
