Audi Locus Concept Design by Ugur Sahin

The 2007 Audi Locus Concept Design by Ugur Sahin, shows its enthusiasts a continous figure which is a curve, obviously inpsiring from Mother Nature. The engineers' main objective was to create a car which gives an energetic, relaxing, confident and vibrant feeling. The curved sharp edged line starts at the front, then it flows through the middle section, curving down after the A pillar and then it goes back up again at the rear wheel arches in order to make its way back until the diffuser.A coherent feeling is enhanced by the very shaped traditional Audi grill and air intakes. Avoiding any unnecessary details, the tail lights were designed in a way so that they had integrated air outtakes underneath them. The fairly empty rear section together with the dual exhaust create a smooth impression of subtleness.

The name LOCUS means a condition that defines a continuous figure which is a curve.

The main characteristics of the design are the way its surface shapes are formed with a continuous flow from front until the back of the car. Inspiration for that was obviously the Mother Nature we deal with daily but somehow we usually do not realize that everything in the nature has somehow its specific curves and flowing lines it is very rarely to spot perfectly straight lines. The main goal was to implement this design aspect into a car which creates a relaxing, energetic, vibrant and confident feeling.

It is clear to see a curved sharp edged line that starts at the very front, flowing through the middle section, slightly curved down after the A pillar and then going back up again at the rear wheel arches to follow its way back until the diffuser. This same curve language is also applied to the greenhouse and the way windows are shaped. The front is somehow aggressive looking with the traditional AUDI grill and air intakes that are shaped very much like the headlights to create a coherent feeling. The rear section is obviously very organic with defined curves and subtle details, tail lights are designed to have integrated air outtakes underneath them to avoid any unnecessary details. With dual exhaust and fairly empty rear section, it creates a feeling of subtleness. Another feature is the air intake at the end of the roof which is designed to avoid any distracting design elements on the top of the car combining elegance with functionality.
