Rinspeed iChange Solar Vehicle – Transforms

Published by on Feb 26th, 2009, No Comments

The green minded will definitely enjoy all the hard work the Swiss car maker Rinspeed has put into building an amazing solar powered concept. Dubbed the iChange and looking like a supercar, the lightweight electric vehicle features solar panels and packs three li-ion batteries and a 150 kW engine that helps it reach a max 220 km/h and takes it naught to 100m/h in 4.2 seconds. However, the most amazing part is the fact that it shapeshifts according to the number of passengers on board. We’d definitely love to take on the experience of making that tiger roar. [via ]

Rinspeed X-Treme Porsche Cayenne Announced

With a new facelifted model 957 Cayenne, Porsche was close to perfection, until the Swiss guys from Rinspeed came with a few “additions”. Apparently the new Rinspeed X-Treme Porsche Cayenne comes with a higher output 600hp motor engine, fins and splitters on those larger front air intakes, 35mm lower thanks to the modified air suspension, all these making it look very “mean”.

With a gapping front, bigger wheel arches and using the company’s sporty quad chrome exhaust, the new Rinspeed X-Treme Cayenne is a great solution if you need both safety and performances. Rinspeed, didn’t mention how they managed to get 600hp, but my thought is that it has something to do with the injection system.

Add to all these the fact that it has large 23-inch wheels with 315/25/R23 tires that can fly you up to 300km/h and I’m drooling already to take it for a test drive.
