Luxury Car Motorcycle Hybrids

These Concept Designs Combine Ducati and Audi in Sleek Fashion

— April 9, 2013 — Autos
Two of the most recognizable transportation makers in the world are combined with these sleek Ducati and Audi concept hybrid designs.

These Ducati and Audi hybrids may not actually be too far-fetched consdering that Audi has recently purchased Ducati and is rumored to be producing and designing Audi branded motorcycles. These Ducati and Audi designs were put together by Thibault Devauze with the help of his brother Marc. Thibault is a former intern of both Ducati and Audi when the two were still seperate entities, which means he likely has a better idea than most of what Audi might produce with their two-wheeled creations.

The concept bikes feature a powerful 850CC engine and a combination of carbon fiber and light alloys for the body.

1. Luxury Motorcycle Car Hybrids - Luxury automotive companies merging specialized technologies present an opportunity for hybrid vehicle-type disruption.
2. Audi-branded Motorcycles - Audi's purchase of Ducati and their recent focus on motorcycle development implies the disruption of the traditional automotive and motorcycle industries.
