An Audi for your Wet Dreams

In my opinion, Audi exemplifies the essence of German minimalist elegance. Never known for pretentious or over the top designs, the Ingolstadt, Germany company has stuck to their “Vorsprung durch Technik” or “Advantage through Technology” philosophy since day one. Designer Markus Klug used Audi’s minimalist approach to automotive design to create this cross-over water yacht concept. In his words: “I wanted my design to be clear and direct, but also luxurious and sport…It has to captivate the onlooker at first glance, in precisely the same way that the cars do” The 25-year-old student said that he drew his inspiration from his passion for sailing with the Audi MedCup, a regatta series in the Mediterranean for TP52 yachts. Measuring in at 15 metres in length, with a mast of 21 metres high and a draught of between 1.5 and 2.5 metres, this ultra-yacht has sex appeal measuring off the charts.

  • BRAVO! beautiful job on the model and a good looking and realistic design. It shows that he has experience in “using” the product so understands what are the hot buttons for the buyer and user. One quibble, using dark colors topside on any boat is asking for burned feet or bottoms, it looks great but oh damn does it get hot.

    looks nice. excuse my ignorance though, how is that different from any other TP52 sailing boat? deck layout? interiors? color/shine? audi logo?

      then what is the same point between them?

        this is what I was asking – what’s “new” about this model? if it’s just the color and the audi logo slapped at the bow, I would find it hard to call it a “design”, would be more like a “paintjob”. Does a “paintjob” qualify as “design”?
        Again, I think it looks very good, but ALL of the TP52s look very good already.

          there is nothing special whatsoever about this concept. people who come in here and think that this is magnificent because its photographed nicely, take a closer look and be more intelligent with your feedback.

          this is a design website, not a site for photographers

    The side view profile reminds me of a submarine.
