Swiss automative visionary Frank M. Rinderknecht, head of Rinspeed, in collaboration with experts from Bayer MaterialScience AG created this cool concept car eXasis: a drivable glass-car with transparent high-tech plastic and a yellow trim. Built with a completely transparent body.

It has been shown for the first time at the Geneva Motor Show in March 2007. 40 years ago, Bayer presented the first "all-plastic car" at the K67 Plastics Fair in Germany (1967).

Creator Frank M. Rinderknecht about the 'Makrolon polycarbonate plastic': "In this ethereal transparency, the true spirit of the eXasis becomes visible. An abstract idea becomes material, visions become a tangible car. Yet the eXasis still doesn't seem to have quite arrived in our material world."

  1. I’m relatively sure that this is the way our cars will look in a not so distant future where energy gets increasingly scarce. This kind of weight saving construction, perhaps in combination with a fuel having it’s origin in a renewable source, is where the development should go in the automobile industry, hopefully sooner than later.
