Remember that paper Audi A7 on display at the IAC Building presentation of the real car the night prior to the New York Auto Show. The work was done by artist Taras Lesko using 285 pieces of paper, 750 parts and 245 hours. Audi USA produced a time lapse video of Lasko's work and you can find it below.

So how did Lesko and Audi of America hook up for such a bizarre yet cool concept? Audi CMO Scott Keogh mentioned in his presentation that night that they'd met Mr. Lesko while working with Microsoft on their inclusion in Forza Motorsport 3. We did a little research and found a second time-lapse video of Lesko's earlier project... an Audi R8.
