Rinspeed BamBoo previewed ahead of Geneva debut

Swiss design house Rinspeed has released first details about a new concept called BamBoo, that is set to make its world debut at the 2011 Geneva Motor Show next March.

So what is BamBoo? In Rinspeed words:

Nomen est omen – the name says it all – is immediately apparent: Many interior components are made from bamboo fibers. But the four-seater “BamBoo” takes it to a whole new level – to the Meta level so to speak: This open-top vehicle awakens the longing for sun, summer, for lightness and easiness, the desire to be at the beach. It is a reminiscence of the Seventies, of the south of France and St. Tropez. And one would expect to find Brigitte Bardot behind the wheel with playboy Gunther Sachs at her side heading towards Tahiti beach..

Rinspeed did not reveal any details about its powertrain, but it is quite obvious we are looking at another electric vehicle concept. We’ll be in Geneva next March, so stay tuned for more details.
