Will Smith, one of our generation’s greatest acting talents, is known for his funny jokes and pretty flash nature. Having played some pretty suave characters, Smith is an icon in many different ways.
While famed for his blockbusters, Smith (and many of the characters he plays) also boast an eye for fine cars, with the Smith family fleet worth millions of dollars.
Back in 2004, Smith’s character in iRobot gave us a glimpse of the Audi RSQ; a futuristic vehicle concept that became a reality just a few years later. This was in the form of the popular Audi R8. Now, car enthusiasts are saying we have a repeat performance on our hands, with Will Smith’s latest character sporting a car design that is capturing the attention of pretty much everyone.
Playing Lance Sterling in the animated film Spies in Disguise, Smith’s character again gets his hands on an RSQ. But, this time, the car is an Audi RSQ e-tron. Fully electric and technology-focused, the car is forward-thinking yet not too farfetched. Boasting a hologram speedometer and bursting with high-tech gadgets, the car is not too dissimilar from concepts we are seeing from German manufacturers elsewhere.
A supercar phoenix
Being fully autonomous and with a striking exterior, is Will Smith giving us a glimpse into the future of transportation? Well, if Audi’s latest concept is anything to go by; yes. Also showcasing striking lines, built on AI and described as a ‘supercar phoenix’, is Audi setting the tone for their next release? With 735 electric horsepower, 800-volt charging capacity and stunning bucket seats, we certainly hope so!
