The BMW Gina


The GINA car concept turns the idea of a typical car exterior on its head. This shape-shifting super-car (currently in the BMW Museum in Munich) is an acronym derived from the phrase "Geometry Infinite Adapatation" (GINA) and has a textile skin that takes about two hours to wrap around the car. Based on the car's various configurations, it folds, stretches and buckles to offer up a flexibility rarely (if ever) found on an automobile. 
(Just hope it doesn't hit a snag.)
