Rinspeed Bamboo Concept Car - Web Exclusive

"BamBoo" is the name of Frank Rinderknecht's latest project that resembles a grown-up golf cart with some cool retro references.

Dec 1, 2010

The names of the concept cars from Swiss car visionary Frank M. Rinderknecht are more than catchy titles. At his Rinspeed company, the names often have a deeper meaning, as is the case with this latest creation.

"BamBoo" is the name of his latest project that resembles a grown-up golf cart with some cool retro references. It is slated to appear at the Geneva Auto Show, which runs from March 3rd through 13th, 2011.

In keeping with the name, many interior components are made from bamboo fibers. But the four-seater "BamBoo" takes it to a whole new level. The open-top vehicle has electric drive. What's more it also has a fold-down electric scooter onboard for greater versatility.

Bamboo is another in a long line of automotive curiosities from the Rinspeed stable that are intended to move the discussion forward and how we view automotive transport. It's unlikely Bamboo will ever see production, but perhaps some of its ideas will turn up elsewhere in the future.
