“First of all, let’s ask the questions: What do we need the skin of a car for anyways? What’s it there for? Does it have to be metal? Do we always have to make it in the same manner?”

These are the questions BMW’s Director of Design Chris Bangle asks in this stunningly sleek presentation of the GINA Light Visionary Model, a car shape-shiftingly skinned in fabric. Every season car companies advertise that their new designs are, well, new and revolutionary. This one actually is.
