Why? Even if IMO the new A8 is the most ugly Audi ever built (together with A1 and A7 Sportback Concept), it is 200 kg lighter than the BMW 7 Series. Well maybe the weight does not play a big role when the cars are about 2.000 kg, but anyway.

What models, and what price? I don't doubt that it'll eventually happen for the M5, M6 and possibly the M3 (but probably not the M3, unless they charge 10k for the option). But i doubt they will be combining a decent amount of CF into a 45k 3 series anytime soon.
