Audi’s new MINI competitor will feature a daytime running light system similar to the one found on all new Audi models recently.
The “eyeshadow”-shaped lights seem to have been refined over its first appearances – from what I can see in the video (as with the A8 too) it is now looks like a single solid line instead of noticeable individual LEDs forming a shape. The new “solid line” design is achieved using fiber optics combined with LED lighting, which enables Audi to create the smooth uninterrupted line.
Apparently the design is meant to resembled “wings of an eagle”, according to Audi at least. It is also meant to display “decisiveness and concentration” like an athlete all ready to go at the starting line with a sparkle in his eye.
