I particularly like the "virtually seamless" body that is allowed by this tech, but I would have to agree that the inevitable wrinkles from the
opening of the doors is pretty bad, but looks amazing when closing once again to form back into its beautiful shape.
Another big plus would be the ability to hide components until needed, which invokes a sculptural purity that is uninterrupted by graphics. Also, the
ability for the kidney grill to be stretched open for more airflow and various other structures to pull and stretch... it will be interesting to see
where they can go with this one.
BMW states that this concept's manufacturing process (in regards to future production feasibility) "requires fewer model-specific tools, and more
highly-qualified skilled specialists".
I am intrigued!
