Auto: iChange ~By The Swiss auto Rinspeed

Like Cool just featrued this new concept car last month. The Swiss auto Rinspeed designed the iChange, the world’s first car whose body adapts to the number of passengers on board. It will debut at the Geneva Motor Show 2009 (March 5th-15th). In seconds a streamlined one-seater sports car transforms into a comfortable car with ample room for three. The trick: At the push of a button the rear end of the teardrop-shaped car magically pops up. “We have designed and built an extremely flexible vehicle. ” Weighing in at just over 1,000kg the lightweight car is powered by an electric motor while its teardrop-shaped body is extremely aerodynamic. Its motor produces 150kW that reachs a top speed of 220 km/h, 0-100Km/h in 4 seconds. The iChange does without doors as well. Instead the entire roof assembly tilts forward to allow passengers on board. And it has a very cool “key” – iPhone. Also gone are such mundane things as a key. its role is filled by an Apple iPhone, which also controls the most important vehicle functions.
