Car designer Audi is turning 100 this year and is celebrating by designing this luxurious grand piano.

The piano is a modern twist on a traditional instrument with its sleek curves and black cowl. The German automaker wanted to secure the acoustics, so they left the classic shape intact.

The grand piano costs $140,000, and Wolfgang Egger, Chief Audi designer, hopes this project will help his team think outside the box.

Implications - Let's just hope they find someone extremely talented to tickle those pearly whites since it has such a steep price tag. I'm sure the sound of the thing will fill a room with splendid music.
