Rinspeed iChange news - Geneva show: Rinspeed iChange - 2009

OK, we
only told you about it last week, but we wanted to give you a quick update on
the Rinspeed iChange having seen it on the Geneva floor.

because it’s even weirder than we first thought. There’s one central driver’s
seat, with a pair of passenger seats perched behind on either side - like the
McLaren F1, but somehow far less desirable.

As far as
we can tell, the two rear seats slide prostrate beside the driver, allowing the
roofline to lower, thus improving aerodynamics. At least, that’s what we think
happens: we stood agape, watching the iChange spin round and round on its
stand, but at no point did anything clever happen with the roof. Sceptical? Us?

Actually, that’s a slight lie. At one point, the whole roof arrangement
did hinge up, worryingly supported by a couple of rather flimsy looking pieces
of string. We don’t want to be too negative about Rinspeed’s indubitably
original way of thinking, but guys - this one’s not going to catch on.
