Sometimes there are things that defy rhyme, reason, or any sort of explanation. You just stop thinking and appreciate the work for what its worth: a kick-ass piece of art. This project is one of those things.

Graphic designer, Taras Lesko, is known for possessing a pretty artistic set of hands, having gained fame for some of his elaborate works made out of paper. But his latest work is defined not just for the intricate work done on it, but also for its general awesomeness.

Using 285 pieces of printed pages of card stock and 750 laser-printed parts detailed and rendered in flattened wood pulp, Lesko was able to piece together a mind-boggling 4 ft x 2 ft x 2 ft scale model of the Audi A7. The finished product is nothing short of amazing, and the elaborate work wasn’t isolated on the exterior too. Even the A7’s interior, complete with the infotainment system, was carefully crafted to make it look like the real thing.

It’s one hell of a work of art, if you ask us. To see how Lesko was able to piece the whole project together from scratch to finish, check out the three-minute time-lapse video of Lesko build his Audi A7 masterpiece.

And from what we heard, the whole project was commissioned by Audi of America and judging by the finished product, we’re pretty sure that the people who asked Lesko to do this are pretty happy with how it turned out.

Kirby’s first exposure into the world of automobiles happened when he caught Knight Rider on television as a five-year old boy. David Hasselhoff didn’t leave much of an impression on him (that happened later on in Baywatch), but KITT certainly did. To this day, Kirby remains convinced that he will one day own a car with the same ‘spirit’ as the original KITT (not the 2008 monstrosity). He doesn't know when that will be, but until then, he’s committed to expressing his love for KITT, and all cars for that matter, here at TopSpeed.  Read More

Yeah, same thing..And I think it was a great idea BrianHerron to come up with model car using a matchsticks or playing cards!lol

Actually, it was a great piece of art! And I think he made an awesome work on the major details on the exterior, like the wheels and the grille.

This is really a great talent. I think it’s somewhat similar to the origami in Japan. BTW, While watching the video I was curious on how he manage to fold those paper and made the part one by one, then suddenly it forms the A7.

I wonder what kind of odd art they would come up with next. A Ferrari made out of matchsticks would be quite nice, or a Jaguar out of playing cards.

Well, if that’s the case, then they definitely have made the right move to here the guide. Just again on how hard it is to come out with a paper sculpture that is that intricate.

Yeah, I think Audi commissioned the guy to do the work, since he got the details exactly according to the specifications. Maybe Audi provided him with the plans.

Hmm, Audi should at least take a look at his work, to see how good this guy is. Or are the guys from Audi the ones who hired him for this?

Yeah, he really has a nice gift there. I wonder if he actually earns a lot from it. It is likely that he does, considering that a lot of folks are into such artistic talent.

Perfect! I keep on admiring this art work! This dude is really a talented one for he keep all the details from the exterior down to the interior!

haha. I like the fast forward mode of this video. It makes me excited to know the outcome of his project and I’m not disappointed at all.

Well, seeing this one, I would definitely want to see what the guy’s next project would be. A paper mockup of the Lamborghini Aventador wouldn’t be so bad.

Agreed Jay,

Audi is amazing fully equipped car with the A7 features. What can we expect more from it. I cant wait to get my hands on steering to have a test drive.

Whew, my jaw can only drop. That one is certainly an amazing work. Imagine that, the thing has all the details of the A7 down right to the interior.
