The Audi Avatar Concept is a futuristic 3-seat electric supercar designed by Australian Edwin Conan to provide drivers of 2032 the joy of driving that they had playing racing games when they were kids.
Inspired by the 1937 Auto Union Type C Streamline racing car, the Avatar Concept is the 21st century avatar of its ancestor.
Long range supercharge-ion battery driving 4 powerful in-wheel electric motors, together with ultra light aerodynamic body, enable the car to accelerate from 0-100km/h in 2.9s, reach top speed of more than 360km/h with nimble and agile handling.
The exterior design of the car is inspired by the form of fabric blown in the wind. The form also carries traces ofthe historical Auto Union Type C Streamline racer.
There are no conventional doors on the car, but instead, inspired by the jet fighters, there are three glass canopies. The main canopy opens forward together with the steering wheel and the dashboard; the two passengers’ canopies open backwards; and a side panel on the bodywork opens downwards to act as a step, making the event of getting in and out of the cockpit very special and easy.

The interior of the car is as simple and futuristic as the exterior.It consists of one continuous sheet, starting from the dashboard, then being folded and bended to create floor carpet and seats.

A single sheet transparent LCD dashboard displays all the essential data such as speed and mileage. The screen in the center of the steering wheel displays digital map. The information can also be projected on the canopy by a head up display. The whole driving experience would be like flying a fighter jet.

There is a small but handy luggage space behind the driver seat for handbags and suitcases. It is also an arm rest for the passengers.

The drive by wire system makes it possible to allow the interior to feature interchangeable steering module. The default is traditional steering wheels, the driver can exchange the steering wheel for joy stick module or even key board module depends on personal preference.

Technical features

Four wheels are housed inside the car’s four “legs”. Each wheel contains an Audi In-wheel Electric Drive Unit, making the car an evolution in Audi’s trademark “Quattro” all time four-wheel-drive system.
The long range Supercharge-ion battery which powers the in-wheel motors are separated into two packs located in front of as well as behind the cockpit, creating a perfect 50:50 weight distribution of the car for excellent handling.
Audi In-wheel Electric Drive Unit is a compact module consists of a powerful electric motor, a disc brake with two brake calipers and two magnetorheological shock absorbers, all in the space of a wheel hub.
The “leg” changes it’s shape when the wheels are turning. The car features four-wheel-steering technology, with the front wheels doing most of the steering, and the rear wheels steer within 10 degrees for assistance, making the car extra nimble and agile.
