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 theLamborghini 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.
