The RSQ concept starred alongside Will Smith in the blockbuster movie
'I, robot'. It was designed by Julian Honig, a senior exterior designer
at Audi, and it made its world debut at the 2004 New York Auto Show.
Although it was never destined for production, many of the RSQ's styling
details are evident on Audi's
Le Mans supercar concept - which went into production as the Audi
The RSQ features the novel idea of spherical wheels at all four corners
to increase maneuverability. They move in a manner similar to the
ball in an old-style computer mouse, theoretically allowing the RSQ
to travel in all directions with equal agility.
The spherical wheel concept has been proven to be viable however,
and a motorcycle
which uses the same idea has even been built.
Imagine trying to find tires for that!
