Audi Shark – Futuristic Flying Sports Vehicle

Last week we dreamed about the outrageously insane, yet awesome Jetbike. Today, we turn it up a notch with the Audi Shark, a futuristic flying concept vehicle designed by Kazim Doku, who landed first prize in the Desire Design Competition launched in 2008 by Italian Domus Academy.

The LED headlights and tail lights are installed in transparent tubes, while the interior of the Shark is decked out with sporty seats integrated inside the cockpit.

Using a variety of denominations, Tanu creates intricate structures that range in shape and size. Often, he’ll first build a strong base using staggered coins.
