The Audi R- Zero concept (2006) is the work of a transport designer and two digital designers from the International Design School, France. Franck Levivier, Rémi Marchand and Pierre-Olivier Wagner’s collaboration centered around a desire to create a concept supercar for a time when the world could no longer rely on oil for a source of power. Essential to the R-Zero’s design was a belief that despite the cars environmentally friendly credentials it should have the ability to excite.

Despite its gorgeous lines and innovative engineering, the Audi R-Zero is only a concept.
