RIN­SPEED BUDII

In pre­vi­ous years at Geneva, Swiss firm Rin­speed has shown a sub­mersible car, a car you stand up in, an­other you face back­wards in and now it has a car with a periscope to keep an eye on the traf­fic ahead.

As be­fore, there is next to zero chance of this car ever mak­ing it to show­rooms — but it’s fun to dream.

Rin­speed started with a BMW i3 elec­tric car and then re­built it from the in­side out.

Cool touches: the steer­ing wheel can be moved to the pas­sen­ger’s side so some­one else can drive if you’re tired. It also has iPad screens be­hind the sun vi­sors, the driver gain­ing ve­hi­cle in­for­ma­tion, the pas­sen­ger get­ting to watch TV. Or check email. Or watch crazy cat videos.
