Driving the Iconic Audi RSQ from I, Robot with Will Smith

There are loads of amazing hidden surprises within it.


Remember the cool car Will Smith drove in I, Robot? It’s called the Audi RSQ concept car and was created specifically for the movie back in 2004. Despite being over a decade old, this futuristic vehicle from Audi still looks like it came from another era. Check out more details on this awesome car! Plus, Manhart has taken the already amazing BMW M4 CSL and made it even more wild.

In the movie, which takes place in the year 2035, Will Smith’s character is on a mission to investigate the danger posed by robots to humanity. The Audi RSQ was crafted to serve as a futuristic police vehicle and it certainly looks the part, bearing a striking resemblance to a spacecraft. Undoubtedly, one of the most eye-catching features of this car are its butterfly doors. Audi has made the smart decision to make these doors rear-hinged, resulting in a truly one-of-a-kind appearance.

Meet Supercar Blondie, the car with wheels that resemble spheres. The car was inspired by a movie where it drives on spheres with the help of computer-generated imagery (CGI), which allows it to move in every direction instead of just forwards and backward. However, in reality, the car has tires concealed under its caps.

One of the key features of the car is its yoke steering wheel, which gives it an aircraft-inspired theme. Additionally, the steering wheel can retract into the dashboard when not in use, adding to the futuristic design. The car also features a stick shift, but it requires the driver to connect the gear stick manually, reminding viewers that this is indeed a concept car made for the big screen.
