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.

Well, I guess this concept can’t make it to the production since Audi is busy on their other model like the RS -series. However, I would love to see its detailing on their future production.

First of all, I wonder on how the driver will see the road? The styling of the car look so sporty. BTW, I wonder on what engine they will used in the vehicle?

Yes, you got a point but I think this concept is kind of unique for it speaks on what will the car look like in the future! I hope I could see those wheels and LED headlights in their other production.

hmm. And how could you actually see the road if there’s no glass in here? I have to agree that it is somewhat look similar with the BMW’s Vision EfficientDynamics Concept!

Everyday cars are getting more and more complex and sophisticated. I hope the computer system is also reliable and won’t crash.

Experts claims that the bodywork of the Audi A9 concept features a unique electronic painting system.

Huh how about the windshield? I bet this would be using a hud (heads-up-display) to see the road.
