its probably safe since the fabric is only a cover for all the structure, but yes it would be alot eassier to vandalize and be alot more expensive to replace the whole cover if somebody slashes it


AND, that cant be very aerodynamic because the fabric will not be sturdy at higher speeds
 
You thought fabric was bad. It gets worse, they used ice to cover one of their concept cars.

I don't know about you but I'm happy with plain old aluminum.
 
OMG:eek: The car that changes shape. Chris Bangle is one crazy brilliant mofo with this breaking technology. Watch the video at the end to see for yourself!

Here are my thoughts afterwards:
1.) name sounds like vaGINA
2.) your new BMW can change into another ugly shape
3.) someone will slash your door instead
4.) is that thing even safe / crash tested???
