BMW have a concept of a car with a FABRIC exterior! No metal. How cool is that?! It makes it super light, look sexy as hell when doors open and seats move, but has more or less the same strength as you’re relying on a regular chassis underneath.
Now, I was thinking, what about using that on bikes? For MotoGP it could be smart. But at 200mph, surely the wind would deform it too much and ruin the aerodynamics?
It’ll be teflon coated anyhow I guess for aerodynamics.
Interesting idea, it may sound stupid at the beginning but actual weight of a car will be reduced dramatically. What about resistance that material from being cut by vandals etc? Thanx Jay for posting that anyway…
