The 2011 Audi A7 might be big but it isn't particularly heavy for its size. Weighing in at around 3,900 pounds it's around 300 pounds lighter than its rival the BMW 5-Series GT despite the Quattro drivetrain. You can thank the part aluminum construction for that.
Still, it could be lighter. And smaller. Maybe even made of paper.
Okay, so artist Tarasa Lesko's papercraft Audi A7 won't get you to the shops in all weathers (in fact, it'd probably struggle a little in rain. Or a light breeze...) but it's certainly impressive.
Tarasa made the paper replica using 285 sheets of paper printed with 750 parts, and painstakingly constructed it over 254 hours. We dread to think how many papercuts he received throughout the process.
The detail is pretty amazing. Not only does it have a full interior, but each wheel features individual delicate spokes and brake rotors hiding behind them.
It might not have the usual Audi standards of build quality, but then the real thing hasn't been crafted by hand. If you've got a few days to kill and can't afford an actual A7, then maybe you need a paper replica. Check out Tarasa and Audi's video below:
