If you were lucky enough to find yourself in Hyde Park during this year’s Sydney Festival you may have seen a friend of mine getting her glad rags on. There between the inflatable Stonehenge and the Spiegeltent you could find a new Audi A3 Sedan being transformed into a work of art.
I say a friend of mine because even though she’s a car, I feel like we bonded as I watched airbrush artist DC Willans transform her on stage. And I think she felt it too, because after she had gone from as blank a canvas as a car can be to covered with scenes of Sydney, she found a way for us to be together.
I think she may have used an Audi A3 mind control technique to arrange it. Granted, I’m not sure if this is standard in the new model, but since she has a touchpad on the jog wheel, also has the capacity to read twitter messages to me as I drive, I wouldn’t put it past her.
However it happened, I’m just happy that I got the call asking if I wanted to spend a week with her. One special week before she had to shed her colourful skin and go incognito.
I’ve seen a photo of what she looks like now. She’s sleek and black and looks beautiful, but there’s no sign of her old arty ways. I hate to admit that if she drove past me now I may not recognise her, though I like to think some kind of sixth sense would kick in and I’d look up just in time to see her go by.
Thanks for the memories Audi Art Car, you’ll always be special to me.
Amanda Woods would like to thank Audi Australia for allowing her to borrow the Audi A3 Sedan Art Car. As usual all opinions and thoughts remain her own.
