When the alien invasion comes, won’t you want to be driving an Audi? This may be possible if Audi’s newest design is any indication. Called the Fleet Shuttle Quattro, Audi has designed this virtual car specifically for the upcoming science-fiction film Ender’s Game, based on the 1985 novel of the same name by Orson Scott Card.
Set in the near future when aliens have invaded earth, Ender’s Game tells the story of a young boy named Ender recruited to be trained as a soldier at an intergalactic battle school. The Fleet Shuttle Quattro can be seen in the trailer for the film and appears to be the method of transport for the military when they come to earth recruit Ender.
Audi says the Fleet Shuttle Quattro is purely virtual and was digitally integrated into the film, making this the first virtual Audi designed for a feature film. However, the Fleet Shuttle Quattro is not Audi’s first foray onto the silver screen. Various versions of the Audi R8 supercar have been featured as Tony Stark’s ride of choice in the Iron Man series of films, and the 2004 science-fiction film I, Robot also featured a futuristic version of the R8 called the RSQ.
Ender’s Game, produced by Summit Entertainment, will open November 1, 2013. Until then, check out the trailer below to see a glimpse of the Audi Fleet Shuttle Quattro in action.
