Audi Teases. . .Something

Audi has teased a concept car that it will be revealing at the LA Auto Show next month with an overhead shot of what could be a crossover, sedan or even a coupe: Whatever the case, it certainly shows a somewhat more sensuous shape than current models, particularly the way the shoulders are more prominent and a Coke-bottle shape of the roof/cabin.

Audi has teased a concept car that it will be revealing at the LA Auto Show next month with an overhead shot of what could be a crossover, sedan or even a coupe:

Whatever the case, it certainly shows a somewhat more sensuous shape than current models, particularly the way the shoulders are more prominent and a Coke-bottle shape of the roof/cabin.

This concept was created under the direction of Marc Lichte, Head of Audi Design, who achieved that position in February.

Lichte, born August 9, 1969, (he’s 45, for those of you who don’t want to do the math) was born in Germany.

He has spent his entire design career with Volkswagen Group. He was a student at Pforzheim University in the transportation design curriculum in 1996 when he joined the company. He was an exterior designer who became head of the Exterior Design Studio 10 years later.

While in that studio, vehicles he was involved with included the Golf 5, 6 and 7, the Passat 6, 7 and 8, the Touareg, and the Phaeton.

Looked at another way, he’s done small and midsize cars, an SUV and a luxury model.

All experiences that should be serving him well at Audi.
