Fans of the young adult book "Ender's Game" are likely excited about the film adaptation that's just around the corner. When they head to theaters to see this movie, they'll spot a familiar, albeit futuristic, vehicle on the big screen. The Audi fleet shuttle quattro was developed as an entirely virtual car that reflects the advanced society featured in the movie.
While the virtual nature of the vehicle meant that characters didn't have to worry about things like car repair, the automobile still has a visible presence in the film. With its unique aerodynamic exterior and distinct Audi logo, it's hard to miss.
"Designing the Audi fleet shuttle quattro was similar to customizing a tailor-made suit," said Frank Rimili, the chief designer on the project. "We adapted it to the requirements of the world in 'Ender's Game' and at the same time had to take care to preserve our brand values. We were ultimately able to perfectly project our design philosophy into the fictional world of the movie."
Audi is no stranger to the world of cinema. According to AutoBlog, the luxury automaker had its Audi RSQ features prominently in the 2004 film "I, Robot."
