CES 2016 to See Debut of Rinspeed Etos Concept Sportscar with Autopilot

Swiss Rinspeed is back with a futuristic car concept. Meet the Rinspeed Etos.

What are some of the hottest trends? Self-driving cars and drones blurted out one of Rinspeed's design team members. At least this is how I imagined how Rinspeed came up with the core idea for its 22nd mind bending concept car.

The Rinspeed Etos features a learning auto pilot and the car comes with a drone and landing pad. The interior adapts to the particular driving situation. In autonomous mode, the steering wheel folds up and retracts completely into the dashboard. The two curved widescreens individually move closer to the occupants to provide a better view.

The Etos' drone could fetch a bouquet of flowers the driver ordered online. It could also take a video of the wild ride on the favorite fun road and stream it live to friends.

The Rinspeed Etos will debut not on a car show but at the CES 2016 in Las Vegas. 

“The major and especially the disruptive innovations in future automotive engineering will come from the digital realm. That is why all major manufacturers and suppliers are now present at the CES Consumer Electronic Show,” said Frank M. Rinderknecht, CEO of Rinspeed.

Rinspeed has not revealed all details yet of the Etos. Judging from the provided image, the Rinspeed Etos is one of the most stylish concept cars Rinspeed has created so far.
