Cloth Car By BMW.

Cloth Car By BMW.

BMW's latest concept, the GINA Light Visionary Model uses a textile fabric over a wire structure instead of a metal or plastic body, creating a nearly seamless surface that can be changed at one's convenience. The headlights & turn signals are covered by the fabric skin & are visible once they are on. As it's a flexible fabric, which acts like a hinge, there are no gaps between body & doors. The BMW Gina Visionary Model concept car with such stretchable body panels may not find its way into production any time soon, Chris Bangle gives us a first impression of the ideas behind the project in the video below.
