Alright, I don’t really even pretend to be into cars. I kind of even hate having to own one in all honesty. I wish I lived in a city where I didn’t need one but there is maybe a handful of cities like that in the whole U.S. With that said, this new concept car from Audi did still manage to turn my head. It looks like one of those cars you would see in some movie about the future like Minority Report or A.I. I really thought the design was stunning and it would be pretty interesting to see something like this out on the road.

Here is a little more about it:
“The 2008 Audi O concept was designed by Ondrej Jirec, a design student from the Czech Republic who is beginning studies at the Art Center College of Design, Pasadena, California in 2008.

The Audi O concept was designed to fuse a powerful and innovative audio system with a stylish and sporty four-seat hatchback. The exterior design uses several Audi trademark styling themes, especially at the front where the square grille sits neatly between the LED headlights. The doors feature glass windows running along the bottom edge which provide an interesting shape to the profile of the car. At the rear of the car the pullout door echoes the design of the squared off Audi grille.

The styling of the Audi O was influenced by a variety of sources including the Audi Shooting Brake concept from 2005, the Apple iPod and music.”
