Audi of America commissioned Bennett Awards to design and produce custom sculpture awards that are being used as grand opening gifts at new and remodeled Audi dealerships. These custom sculptures are being placed in the lobbies of each applicable dealership.
There are two main components of these awards. The first, upper component is a custom sculpture created in the shape of a circular, spiraling racetrack. Three Audi cars are attached to the racetrack. The cars represent past, present and future Audi automobiles. The past is based on a 1950’s era concept car, the present on the Audi Quattro®, and the future on Audi’s e-tron® plug-in hybrid electric vehicle (PHEV). The track and cars are both cast in pewter with a bead blasted satin finish. The total sculpture measures approximately 16” x 14”.
The sculptures are mounted on 42” high custom bases. The bases are created in resin, and finished with a white satin paint. The bases have a cutout area at the top that holds engraved plates customized for each dealership. Each color-sublimated plaque includes the Audi logo, the dealership name, the date of the grand opening, and a text passage with additional details on the sculpture and key Audi attributes.
