The Opposite Locker - Edition XXIX

Illustration for article titled The Opposite Locker - Edition XXIX

This is The Opposite Locker where we try and sort out the cool from the square. You are free to discuss your point of view of the cars, on the board and up to bat, within the comments with an optional use of the "Anna Kendrick Test." This is a discussion system detailing how cool a car is, not how fast, fun, or frivolous it may be, but how well it looks in the cat's pajamas.

New Kids On The Block

The Audi A5, and it's souped up conjoined twin, the Audi S5, are seen being driven mostly by business executives. It doesn't look particularly fast, there are no fins, the car lacks a power bulge, the engine note doesn't reverberate throughout the countryside. I'm not sure if I can call the A5/S5 a "sleeper" because the fact that its an Audi, and because everyone knows its an Audi, still draws an eye.
