      Audi brand design chief Stefan Sielaff outlined future plans for Audi's design language recently at an evening event held at a London Audi dealership.

    3. Audi Design Team Reveals Trimaran Boat Student Design Project with Dual V12 TDI hybrid Drive



      The boat you see here doesn't exist, at least not yet... but the design is certainly intriguing. Brainchild of German design student Stefanie Behringer, this catamaran-ish boat with its R8 design cues and dual wave runners on each flank was hatched under guidance by Audi's concept design team in Munich.

    4. Audi Design Releases Drawings of R8 GT Spyder. Ingolstadt Confirms for Production.



      It was probably a foregone conclusion that there would eventually be an R8 GT Spyder. Audi seems to have a track record of continual special model introductions done to keep momentum behind their super-hot R8. And since there's already a coupe GT and already a Spyder, it's easy to imagine how this will play out. Think all of the special bits from the R8 GT applied to the Spyder, including ...
    5. Audi Design Releases Images of Next-Generation A3 Sedan & 3-Door



      You may have noticed earlier this week that Audi Design released a few sketches of the upcoming A3. The shots first showed up on AutoCar, then made their rounds to all of the sites that ripped them off of AutoCar and now have had greater distribution to many of the other big magazines including CAR, Car & Driver, Autobild and more.

      As soon as we spotted the shots ...
    6. Find of the Day: DKW Munga in Need of Work on Ebay



      We've featured DKW Mungas here before though usually in better condition. This 60s and 70s era army Jeep was built by Auto Union subsidiary DKW for the German military for years and this one found its way back to California at some point. This one, of course, needs a lot of work but the price is right if you're looking to build a project car around one.

      Here's the description from ebay.
      ...
    7. AutoCar Blogger Identifies How Auto Design Got So Boxy with Analysis of Audi 50



      Anyone familiar with the late 70s and early 80s designs coming from Audi and other manufacturers at the time would not be surprised to hear the word "boxy" used as a descriptor. At a certain point in the early to mid 1970s, styling houses like Bertone (believed involved in the design of the Audi 50) and Giugiaro (responsible for the ...

    9. "The Sport quattro is Ugly." Ex-Audi Designer Peter Birtwhistle Makes Us Cry.



      Here's a headline you don't see every day. Audi Sport Quattro "is ugly” popped up on our daily news search over on AutoCar.co.uk. Seems the designer of the Audi homologation special and rally icon Peter Birtwhistle was a bit critical of the car in some comments made to the UK weekly ...
    10. Audi quattro Rally Concept Model Shown in Paris



      Perhaps not surprisingly, the Audi quattro Concept shown in Paris seems to have been the star of the show. With a longitudinally mounted version of the 5-cylinder turbo FSI engine from the Audi TT in a lightened and shortened A5/S5 derived chassis, the car certainly struck a cord in many who saw it there or lusted over photos online. Even more interesting then is this design model shown tucked away ...
