HADID HITS THE ROAD

  • Comment
NEWS IN PICTURES

Zaha Hadid has dreamed up this two-seater city car for American art dealer and friend Kenny Schachter. The zero-emission, hydrogen-powered Z.Car is made from a lightweight carbon-fibre composite and boasts a short three-wheel base to reduce parking space. Depending on the speed, the angle of the 'passenger' pod can be adjusted.

At low speeds the pod sits up in a higher position, giving the driver a panoramic view of the street. On the motorway the cockpit sinks, shifting the point of gravity closer to the road.

According to a spokesman, the shape of the car 'reflects the organic language of the practice'.
