Design school pens Audi R-Zéro Concept

The International School of Design in France has created a stunning Audi concept called the R-Zéro. The car would be powered by an electric motor yet offer a supercar level of performance and sportiness. The designers imagine an 800-volt output via high-tech lithium-ion batteries. Around 1200 kg of batteries would be used plus 4 engines weighing 85 kg total. The design is the work of Franck Levivier, transportation designer, and Rémi Marchand & Pierre-Olivier Wagner, digital designers. Whether such a vehicle would be possible to build remains to be seen, but we think the exterior design alone is worthy of the spotlight. See a gallery after the jump of how the car could look...
