Okay so it's ugly, but how does it perform? The article is a lot of talk and nothing concrete! dry.gif

150hp and 1650lbs... you figure it out

I think it's more of an excersise in technology and engineering

I wanna know what the designers at Rinspeed are smoking / snorting / injecting to be in the state of mind required to create these abhominations.

This particular example is even worse than "The Homer" from The Simpsons.

I've never been impressed with a single thing that Rinspeed has done besides that one land/water car. The rest of the shit they come up with is awful.



lol are those gauges the clear cd's that come in blank cd spindles?



Looks like to sit in the back seat you have to have your legs open pretty wide....

Haha I didn't notice the cd gauges.

It's as if they ran out of money, and raided their homes to finish off the car

Crazy cars from Rinspeed is hard to understand, but an even more challenging problem is why there is a horse photographed with this ugly shit.

Not really, if you consider that all of rinspeed's shoots have something odd and out of place.

e.g., take the overgrown jawa's in the background.... wtf



I really don't know where they get the money, or desire to build these things...

Although they also do some more "standard" tuning for porsche's, as well

Megadeus
So...Rinspeed builds a high-tech, E85 burning sandrail covered in clear plastic. oh.gif dry.gif

I would imagine all the sponsors written on this one funded it. But all of Rinspeed's other projects? I have no idea, for certainly no one buys them!

From their Porsche-tuning arm. Btw, I saw the Chopster a couple weeks ago at the mall, extremely OTT, but oh-so-cool.
