BMW GINA – concept motoring

This is one of the loveliest automotive stories i’ve read about in a long time. A shape shifting concept car that is able to change its rigid dynamics but without altering the smoothness of its skin. All the usual identifiers of a road car have been removed and cunningly hidden under the protective expandable skin that covers the outer shell. In the video below, Chris Bangle, Director of Design BMW Group, explains the inspiration and the practical implications. I’m looking forward to more of this.
