Salt Flat Racer
For the 2008 LA Auto Show Design Challenge competition
BMW designed a hydrogen powered salt flat racer based
on the premise of reuse (instead of recycle).
By using existing, ordinary, and mundane materials, such
as old oil barrels and barbeque lids, as main components
for the body and wheel discs of the vehicle, BMW have
tried to make the concept as environmentally friendly
Friendly, whimsical and sustainable, the concept employs
goldfish as "co-pilots" or "canaries-in-a-coal
mine" to ensure that the vehicle is running clean
(if your fish get sick, you must be running "rich").
The wheels are gel-nylon for necessary flex, allowing
tires to be airless and re-vulcanized or re-treaded.
