Rinspeed Previews BamBoo EV Concept well Ahead of 2011 Geneva Show

The 2011 edition of the Geneva Salon won't open its doors to the press and public for another three months and the organizers haven't even begun promoting the show yet, nevertheless, Frank M. Rinderknecht, the man behind wacky Swiss design house Rinspeed, has already revealed details about the company's all-new Geneva-bound concept model.

The latest creation from Rinderknecht is called the “BamBoo” and it's an open top four-seater electric-vehicle supposedly resembling a grown-up golf cart. The car's name is somewhat justified by the use of bamboo fibers for many interior components.

According to Rinspeed, "It is a reminiscence of the Seventies, of the south of France and St. Tropez" and "one would expect to find Brigitte Bardot behind the wheel with playboy Gunther Sachs at her side heading towards Tahiti beach." Oh Rinspeed...
