I am always surprised that Rinspeed is actually able to make their amazing designs into a real car you can see and drive. This time they show the Rinspeed zaZen with revolutionary lighting technique and transparent hardtop at the Geneva Motor Show taking place this week.
Besides its stunning looks the zaZen sports a hardtop made from transparent Makrolon polycarbonate from Bayer MaterialScience.
Other highlights of the zaZen are holographic brake lamps, healing polyurethane clear coat covering Swarovski crystals finished paint, Swarovski cyrstal trimming around the lamps and Technogel seats.
The Rinspeed zaZen is powered by a 355 hp 6-cylinder boxer engine from the Porsche 997 Carrera S.
The Rinspeed zaZen was designed by
Swiss designer, Frank M. Rinderknecht.
More details and lots of zaZen photos on the Rinspeed site.

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.
The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
