Fake Exhaust Tips Have Gone Too Far

This and many more photos of Lamborghinis are available on www.LamboCARS.com

We’ve all seen them on the road and I’m sure they piss you off just as much as they do for me. Fake exhaust tips are an eyesore and they’re nothing but lies. Countless companies are using the design element more and more and it’s a disturbing trend.

Exhaust cutouts, fake tips, fake vents, fake holes, and anything else are used to enhance the car’s overall aesthetic. You don’t have to be an enthusiast to loathe them though. Here are a few of the most egregious examples from around the auto-sphere.

But there’s one example that was spotted that needs to be addressed as it is likely the worst one of all time. The Audi SQ5 should be a pretty damn good vehicle and the back end looks good.

Upon first glance, this seems like a cool design. An Audi S model SUV with quad tailpipes? Awesome. Could be a good one. But then…

Only one thing comes to mind when I see this.

Looks like quad failure to me. And this is on a supposed “performance” variant of the crossover. Now look, I get it, this is a crossover, but that’s no excuse for lazy design, poor execution, and ultimately pleasing no one. The term “fake news” has been all over the place recently so how about we start the “fake exhaust” trend, hmm? This is absurd.

Who else hates this? Let me hear it in the comments.
