AUDI RSQ
The futuristic film car Audi RSQ was presented to the public for the first time on April 7, 2004 at the New York International Automobile Show. Audi tackles its most ambitious product placement project ever: For the epic event motion picture zI, ROBOT, Audi Design developed the spectacular vehicle, which helps leading actor Will Smith - a homicide detective in the year 2035 - solve a mystery that could have grave consequences for the human race. Fox releases "I, ROBOT in the U.S. on July 16; the film arrives in Germany in August.

In the near future, technology and robots are a trusted part of everyday life. In zI, ROBOT, that trust is broken and one man, alone against the system, sees it coming. The film employs spectacular visual effects innovations beyond any ever put on screen, to bring a world of robots to life. The film is directed
by Alex Proyas (Dark City, The Crow) and is set in a world created by famed science fiction writer Isaac Asimov in his short story collection I, ROBOT.

For the first time ever, Audi developed a car specifically for a major Hollywood motion picture. Audi engineers created a car for zI, ROBOTs incredible world of 2035.

The resulting Audi RSQ sport coupe is a visionary interpretation of Audis typical design langauge. The most important thing was that despite its extreme character the car should still be recognized as an Audi. The cinemagoer will therefore see the new Audi front-end with the typical single-frame grille in the movie.

The RSQ includes special features suggested by movie director Alex Proyas. The mid-engined sports car operated by the storys police department, races through the Chicago of the future not on wheels but on spheres. Its two doors are rear-hinged to the C-posts of the body and open according to the butterfly principle.

In addition to the RSQ concept car, Audi supplied further volume-production cars which appear - in disguised shapes - in the movies traffic scenes. Audi also supplied the interior mock-up used for interior car scenes.

With this project Audi opens up a new chapter in product placement. Previously, the brand with the four rings has always supplied volume-production cars to movie productions. In individual cases, such as Mission: Impossible II, these cars were even used in movies before their market launch. With zI, ROBOT and the systematic development of a car of the future, Audi goes far beyond its previous product placement activities.

Audi has been participating as an automobile partner in major movie productions for several years. In addition to John Frankenheimers action classic Ronin with Jean Reno and Robert de Niro (1998), the brand with the four rings played the automobile lead in "The Insider" (1999) featuring Academy Award Winner Russell Crowe, Mission Impossible II (starring Tom Cruise, 2000), The Mothman Prophecies (starring Richard Gere, 2002), About a Boy (starring Hugh Grant, 2002) and Reese Witherspoons Legally Blond 2 (2003).

how the HELL does it drive on spheres?

That sorta defeats the principle of traction and turning ability confused

no, it wouldn't, because a sphere has no place to mount to the car.

where does the axle go?

maybe it uses hovercraft technology for the spheres or magnetic force to control them.

They're not spheres, they're tires underneath Fiberglass. Drop the sphere thing. It would require the kind of technology we don't have, like a superconducting magnetic drive system. It just looks hot. Leave it at that. Think concept. thumbsup

i think that this is very possible in at least 50 years. think of how far cars have come sence they came out. they first had to be wound up in the front and had lit lamps for headlights, now i could hit a button and the car starts and i don't even have to hit anything for my lights. fuel ingection, disc brakes. land speed records of 300+. dvdplayers everywhere in the car. hybrids now. cars have come such a long way in record time. every year there is a ne technological advancement.

i kno it seems like a long shot but think of bring a audi back 30-40 years ago. what would they have said?
