Definitely "Gaposis", since Gapitis" would mean oversized gaps! :P A few of these gaps just look too tight to me, and the one at the top of the front bumper isn't even stright (Look around the front doghouse latch in front of the front wheel). Between that gap, the lack of weight on the tires, and a couple of other things just not quite loking "Right" to my eye, I'm going with MODEL on this guy.

This car and pictures were used for the press release of the Maserati MC12. It might just be a 1:1 model although I think they would use the real deal?

No, that's not an image... it's either a real car or a full-scale mockup. I think it's the real thing, but there's no way to be sure.

Based on the additional images linked below, it looks an awful lot like a digital illustration. The link also shows a real version at an expo, and the comparison with the other images tells me they're digital.

They may be retouched, but those are not images created from scratch... they're photos of either a real car or scale mockup.

Digital or not, this is kind of interesting - a website on car design featuring this car, with an ad for Rhinoceros 3D car modeling software. Click on the ad and there's a very cool computer video on the Audi R8.

Thank for the additional photos! When I look at the 5 photos in this group I would bet money that four of the photos are a clay mockup. When you look at the one in the lower left, it is obviously the real deal. The windscreen is clear and you can see the interior. If you look at that front end and then compare it to the front of the other photos it is significantly differant. The left and right intakes are significantly more inset as is the center. The windows look very much like the mylar covers areas used most commonly on clay mockups.
