The Audi 2Lip is a study of a futuristic vehicle for 2050 focused on offering easy access to the cabin to elderly people. The author is design student Davide Varenna.


The Audi 2Lip was created by Davide Varenna during the first semester of the Master of Transportation Design at the University of Pforzheim, Germany.

The brief of the project was to create a vehicle for 2050, primarily intended for customers over 60 years old, but also desirable for a younger audience.

Audi 2Lip Concept The main focus of the vehicle is to offer easy access to the cabin.

This is achieved through an opening system inspired by flowers, which allows passengers to “walk into the cockpit” without any obstacle.

The front section of the car is made of transparent shape memory polymers that open like a flower to provide access.

Additionally, a large front platform moves downward, reducing the road clearance and providing an easy access also to disabled people. When passengers are seated, the stripes close softly around them.

The cabin offers excellent visibility and extreme spaciousness, achieved by integrating all the mechanical parts in the large rear wheels.

As Davide explains, “The external surfaces, based on the soft / strong contrast, are under visual tension by the large rear wheels, designed to promote ride comfort and dynamics for adults and children, more and more influential in grandparents’ purchasing decisions.”

    ^ they should have some kind of hydrolic under the seat pushing the rider up as he wants to stand up to exit the car.
