I'm liking it very much. Imagine the shapes you could make with just a frame and cloth, and the weight savings would have to be phenominal. I wonder if the cloth ripples at high speeds? Also I can't imagine you could have a very efficient air conditioning system.
how does a regular body hold up? it doesnt, depending on where you get hit.. but im sure they know this, and made some sort of skeleton frame or w/e to make it safe... its BMW, im sure they got it covered... but who cares... it wont be on the street anytime soon, if ever.
Anyone who's owned a convertible will know why this is a bad idea. They show a fabric something like spandex on this prototype; if that was practical and durable, you'd already see it on convertible tops.
We might see this on the road in 20 or 50 years, but not now.
you guys take this too seriously. the car is a metaphor for a change in the way of thinking. of course its not a practical application, but it shows what can be done with an abstract approach. Yea a spandex car is a pretty awful idea for a car, but it makes you think about what different directions car design can go, it brings up questions and possibilities.
All in All, a brilliant concept, it does exactly what a concept should do.
