One of the cool things about working at Kiska is we get to see a lot of talented designers coming through to do their Diplomas. Marco Wilhelm had been following Derestricted for a while during his studies and came to finish his Bachelor of Transportation design degree here. The project was in collaboration with the Audi concept design studio in Munich and I am stoked to be able to show you some photos I took of the finished model as well as some of his concept sketches and development work.
Here is a little background on the project for you:
The Audi nexus is a fresh emotional approach to urban mobility, combining the various advantages of both motorcycles and cars. A dynamic 4-wheel tilting mechanism offers a totally new driving experience, you can lean into the curves and get the thrill of riding a motorcycle whilst still benefiting the safety and stability of a car. The small footprint (it’s as wide as a big scooter) allows you to zip through traffic and enjoy the ride instead of wasting your time on a congested road.
