Meh

It doesn't have a WOW factor for me but it's plausible. Looks like a bigger Z4 from the side angle and i'm not sure about the rear view mirrors on the windshield

You guys need to see the video to realize just how cool the new 'skin' model is.

I love it.

I wonder how much it weighs?

I'd like to see it against high speeds, how aerodynamic would that thing be?

Sweet, no more body rust!

How long do you guys think until production cars might come out with this "skin"? 10 years? 20 years?

Jesus ****ing christ that thing is insane! I've never heard of something like this before!

At first I didn't really get it, looking at the pictures..... I was gonna ask what the hell I was looking at. But that video does make it clear what this car could be capable of. Very cool concept, I like the idea.

I wonder though what that material would be made of? How resistant would it be to damage? It a tree branch brushed it, would it tear? I imagine it would be water proof, and therefore probably do a good job of repelling water. Imagine the cost of bodywork! Haha.... go to your nearest FabricLand. Would make for cheap maintenance, would probably be very easy to gain access to all parts of the workings underneath the cover, and you could sculpt and shape the body design at will.... the potential customization of a car like this is nuts! It could be anything you wanted it to be! You could have two parked beside each other that looked completely different.

Sorry, obviously this has gotten me a little excited..... like I said, I'd never even heard of this project, I think it's really really interesting! Huge potential!
