taras lesko: papercraft AUDI A7

285 sheets of paper went into taras lesko’s papercraft model of the AUDI A7



created by designer taras lesko for AUDI and on display at the new york auto show 2011, this all-paper rendition of the 2012 AUDI A7 is the largest papercraft model of a vehicle ever produced.

assembled over the course of 245 hours, the model measures 4ft x 2ft x 2ft (1.2m x 0.6m x 0.6m). lesko used 285 sheets of paper to make the 750 parts necessary for its creation.
