BMW GINA Concept is back

BMW will be showcasing the legendary GINA Concept at the Dream Cars: Innovative Design, Visionary Ideas exhibition, at the High Museum of Art in Atlanta.

Do you remember the BMW GINA Concept? Well, if you don’t, be prepared for one big surprise as this is the first ever car to get an outer skid made of a flexible fabric material, stretching over a movable structure. The headlights and other parts of the car are hidden under the fabric and this gives it a unique and revolutionary look. The company said that the one-off vehicle has been designed to “challenge existing principles and conventional processes”.

The construction of the model began back in 2001 but it was introduced only in 2008 as a new concept and a new way of visualizing a car and its attributes. The body of the GINA is changing its shape according to the exterior conditions and speeds and it’s also allowing the driver to change the shape at will. Beneath the body there is an aluminum wire structure and flexible carbon struts. The shape of the skin is controlled by electric and hydraulic actuators and since the fabric is translucent, the taillights shine through it.

The interior design of the BMW GINA Concept is also unique and when it is parked, the steering wheel and the instruments are sitting in an “idle” position, allowing the driver an easy entry. At the press of the start button, these assume their correct positions. The one-off vehicle will be on display at the Dream Cars: Innovative Design, Visionary Ideas exhibition at the High Museum of Art in Atlanta, between the 21st of May and the 7th of September, 2014.
