Sumi-e-painted Audi Q7 goes under the hammer in Japan


The Audi Q7, with its ample room on the exteriors proved to be a perfect canvas for Sumi-e artist Hidekichi. It has entered into the ‘premier car’ category at Yahoo! Auctions and brings with it a splash of vibrancy and efficiency and also all the uniqueness that the artist’s hand could conjure. The artwork signifies the aspect of speed blended with a radical new approach towards automobile design.

The vehicle will be available with a standard took kit options including a carat beige coat, matrix LED headlights, City assistance and night vision, all at separate costs. The art on the outside of the car is indicative of the Q7’s agility and speed and shows an athlete making a dash. The success of the campaign is evident from the bids that have poured in, ever since the announcement was made. The highest bid as of now is over 10 million Japanese Yen (which is nearly equivalent to $94,600).
