Lamborghini Urus Face Swap For Audi R8 Looks Better Than Stock

It's been a while since face swaps were the latest trend on social media. However, that only refers to the human side of the deal - if we are to discuss automotive matters, the fascia swap thing is more popular than ever. In fact, I've brought along a fresh example of this, one that sees the Audi R8 impersonating a Lamborghini Urus - purists have no reason to fret, since we're talking about mere renderings here.

The transformation of the mid-engined machine involves the blacked-out exterior trim and the rims, which come to complement the Urus face transplant.

And while some aficioandos treat this as mere pixel play, others take it more seriously. For instance, there are certain gear heads who feel that the Urus-faced R8 looks prettier than the original.

Truth be told, the R8's mid-cycle revamp, which is the one used as a starting point for this visual adventure, has received mixed reviews. So while there are supercar fans who adore it, we can also talk about those who complain about the overall look, or the faux vents on the corners of the apron.

Heck, there might even be car lovers out there who find this Urus-faced Audi R8 sexier than the Lamborghini Huracan (this is the world wide web, so opinions are a rich resource).

Come to think about it, the face swap we have here is far from the most extreme we've seen to date. In fact, that title probably goes to another product coming from the Volkswagen Group, namely this Toyota Camry-diluted Bugatti Chiron.

P.S.: While we're talking VW and Lamborghini, let's head back to the real world for a moment - here's a recent interview with Lamborghini EMEA CEO Andrea Baldi, with the discussion covering the changes that Sant'Agata Bolognese is going through, from hybridisation to the increasing number of female customers.
