Automotive styling has undergone some very extreme changes over the past 20 years, and mostly for the better. Sometimes however, a new concept comes along that breaks that mold and really makes us step back and stare. The BMW Lovos is a perfect example of this kind of concept.
Lovos stands for Lifestyle of Voluntary Simplicity and was designed by Anne Fisher of Pforzheim University. The 24-year old based her design on a single part that occurs 260 times on the concept, making each piece fully interchangeable and easy to replace. Each one of the miniature fins is covered in photovoltaic cells that can move slightly to track the sun. The fins can also act as an army of airbrakes if you need some extra stopping power.
At the center of the concept is a one piece cabin area that is shaped to fit into between the rows of fins very cleanly. From the pictures, it looks to seat only one comfortably.
Judging by the inclusion of photovoltaic panels on the exterior, it would only make sense for the Lovos to be electrically powered. BMW Blog
