    Pretty neat little transforming concept car.

    Concept Car Transforms to Suit All Situations

    It doesn't transform into a robot, but it sure has the stealth mode transformation down fairly well if they'd just slap a gun or two on it. :)

    I personally woudln't call panels compressing and decompressing transforming.

    Looks neat but one mere speed bump would trash the bottom of that thing. And as mentioned, I fear to see the crash test results.

    Also with all them moving parts, I see a car with a lot of things breaking down.

    Until they actually make one that isn't just CGI, it's not impressive.

    Who knows what kind of crazy lift might occur with air flow changes like that. You could be cruising down the street and have it "transformer" only to find out it puts major lift on the noise and suddenly it's doing backflips down the road.

    It's an interesting idea, but that's all it is right now.

    A world with cars like those would be a very beautiful one.

    saddly such a car would not pass any safety tests and frankly I dont even think that from a performance POV its even practical

    Looks too ambitious. Cool though... I'd like to see it in a Sci-Fi movie.

    While it might not be the most practical design ever, I really like how the entire car's structure can act as it's suspension. If nothing else, something like that could be adopted more widely in the future, so who knows. :)

    I still like that one BMW concept car where the body is more like a flexible skin

    That's pretty cool. It's gonna be insanely expensive, though.

    A body like that would damn expensive get fixed after a little fender bender many normal cars would just shrug off. I wouldn't fancy being knocked down by one with all those angled edges. Actually, I don't think I'd like to be around if it crashed and one of that small panels came slicing through the air at my head either.
