Rinspeed Exasis Concept

Looking like a giant child’s toy, Rinspeed’s latest foray into conceptual design is all about the material in this case clear plastic. eXasis’ is deliberately insectoid, a slab of curved high-tech plastic with an (intentional) tint of pale yellow. Looking a bit like the offspring of an old-fashioned racing car and a beach buggy, the eXasis is an experiment in new materials, rather than a proposal for a genuine car. Crucially, the see-through bodywork is also ultra-light, ensuring that Porsche-sapping performance is available from a compact and therefore less polluting engine.
