ADDITIONAL MODEL INFORMATION

For generations, artists have looked to cars for inspiration, and sometimes the result is a truly impressive piece of work.

This paper model of an Audi A7 was put together using over 280 pieces of paper and 750 individual parts. The model was displayed alongside Audi’s full sized cars at the New York International Auto Show last week.

Audi commissioned the model to help promote the launch of its new car. It comes complete with a fully built interior, correct body lines and even includes a navigation display.

Graphic designer, Taras Lesko took 245 hours to build the four foot long car out of paper.

Lesko has done work in the automotive world in the past; in 2009 he worked with Turn 10 Studios to help develop the wildly popular Forza Motorsport 3 video game.

The real Audi A7 Sportback made its debut at the 2010 Paris Motor Show and is on sale as a 2012 model. Audi calls the car a ‘five door coupe’, though that title might be a little misleading. Really, the A7 is Audi’s answer to the well-liked Mercedes CLS: A re-bodied, sleeker version of a midsize sedan.

Like its paper replica, the A7 is relatively lightweight for its size. It tips the scales at around 4,100 pounds which is a decent achievement for a car this big. Weight reduction is key for car manufacturers; less weight allows a car to achieve better fuel mileage without sacrificing performance.

The A7 is available with a supercharged, direct injected 3.0 liter V6. The engine is capable of 310 horsepower and it can run from 0-60 MPH in 5.4 seconds. The A7 has a retail price of about $60,000.

Be sure to check out the video and take a look at the work that went into creating this truly unique papercraft model.
