In a new and highly emotional design idiom, Marc Lichte communicates the technical competence and uncompromising product quality of the Audi brand – vehicle design is becoming an even stronger expression of progressive technology. New design idiom embodies the progressive values of Audi along with opening new perspectives in automotive design.
