Huge Crumple Zone: Geeky Super-Lightweight Audi A7

This awesome 2012 Audi A7 sculpture looks incredibly life-like, but it’s actually made entirely of paper. It was created by visual artist Taras Lesko over the course of 245 hours using 285 sheets of paper. Lesko printed the papers off on his laser printer then used two desktop cutting plotters, an X-Acto knife and glue to put together the amazing replica.

It’s hard to judge the scale of the model based on the photograph alone, but in the making-of video you can see that the car is only around 4 feet X 2 feet X 2 feet. The replica is extremely detailed and even has an accurate interior, which is especially impressive considering that it’s all papercraft.
