Thibault Devauze is a 28-year old French car designer. He studied for five years at ISD Valenciennes where he graduated with distinction in October 2010. Among his past experiences are a 1-year experience at Opel as exterior designer and internships at Ducati, Land Rover and Audi. Devauze, who has collaborated with the Opel and recently worked for Gran Torino Studio, imagined the first model of a new bike range from Audi, leveraging the recent acquisition of the Ducati brand and targeted to rival against BMW Motorrad. His proposal is inspired by the Audi ultra lightweight technology, and is constructed by combining the carbon fiber aluminum alloys techniques.

Speaking about the development process, Thibault explains: “My brother and I have both worked in interior design at Audi in Ingolstadt. during the Audi museum visit we were surprised to see so many bike in the heritage of the brand with the four rings.

“Few months later, when I worked at Opel as an exterior designer I had the idea to do a project bike for Audi…The idea was pretty simple: the first competitor of AUDI is BMW, and BMW sell bikes.”

“In the past Audi has a massive heritage in terms of bike with the DKW brand. Audi is always looking for new market , bikes market represent a good opportunity. […] my friend Clement Couvreur is a digital modeler and he was also working at Opel. We started this project during our free time at the end of 2011. In the summer 2012 we were joined by my brother Marc who finished the bike.” Thibault Devauze
