If the car above makes you want to scream, "Who squashed the Audi" then you are not alone. This is what seems to happen when Spanish designer Daniel Garcia imagines a sport four door coupe. Kind of reminds us of the recently unveiled BMW Gran Coupe and Mercedes Benz F800 although it looks more like a flatter version of the BMW’s Vision EfficientDynamics Concept. Daniel Garcia designed the A9, a luxury sports saloon, featuring similar design language as the current Audi models. It is aimed at models like the Porsche Panamera and the Lamborghini Estoque.
The A9’s design was partially inspired by the stunning architectural style of Santiago Calatrava’s buildings in "La Ciudad de las Artes y de las Ciencias" (The City of Arts and Sciences) in Garcia’s hometown of Valencia. It features a single-piece windscreen and roof formed from an as-yet undiscovered nanotechnology material which features an automatic-system for repairing damage and it can also be adjusted for color and opacity.
Under the hood Garcia imagined a hybrid system that combines an internal combustion engine working in conjunction with four in-wheel electric motors.
We know we poked fun at it, but we actually do like the smooth lines and futuristic detailing of the supposed A9. Very Back-to-the-Future-esque.
