The only thing of Audi in this car is the name, but in actuality, the prototype wasn't created by the German car brand. The Quattroflex is a style exercise, almost a year-old, by Russian design and architecture student, Alexey Bykov, but it's nevertheless up to date and fascinating. Behind this work there's the recovery of the old horse-drawn carriage that would originate the car (short for carriage) as we know it today.
The vehicle is composed by two cylinders placed horizontally containing electric motors responsible for propulsion. Connecting these two elements there is a platform of variable geometry, that can shrink or stretch, and where you can find two seats that can assume various shapes according to the passengers' needs. Every command is done using a joystick placed in the usual gear shift place.
In the project there is no information about the driving system, for instance. On the other hand, there are a few ingenious details, such as the inclination of the wheels when they turn and the refined placement of the headlights. The lines of the Quattroflex are, on the whole, clean and elegant. This style exercise is reminiscent and cutting edge, at the same time, proving once again that automobile design is one of the most creative areas, nowadays.
