BMW recently revealed the GINA light visionary model concept car, an innovative new exploration in car design. instead of the traditional steel and plastic body shell, the GINA concept uses a textile fabric starches over a wire frame. this unique idea allows the car’s skin to change shape, stretching to match the position and curve of the wire frame. this idea is demonstrated in the ‘blinking’; headlights and the flexibility of the car doors as they open. the project began by questioning the purpose of a car’s body and exploring new possibilities. chris bangle, director of design for BMW, discuses the project in the video below. the car is currently on show at the BMW museum in munich, germany.

  • Well done!!! What a beautiful and visionary car. It may as well point the way for future cars, maybe not the material used as a ‘real world’ car but the design and knowledge gained from it. People that have signed in here have been morons, who says the opening of the cars bonnet looks like a vigina, come on is that really mature?? and other people are completely missing the point and being wet blankets. Anyone want one of those japanese creations called personal mobility machines?? It’s called CONCEPTUALISING, get with it people.
