Back in 1933, Buckminster Fuller designed his Dymaxion Car, featuring an innovative body that was inspired by the geodesic dome. Here we have the EXO NURBS Car that learns from this early automotive example and manifests as a remarkably revolutionary concept.

The impressively stable vehicle sits upon an external chassis. The shell that's built on top of it comes to mimic a crystalline structure that gives the entire enclosure great strength and stability. The windows, the doors, the lights and other exterior features had to be worked into the triangular facets to avoid compromising the intricate configuration.

Mark Beccaloni's futuristic EXO NURBS Car would be packed with other cutting-edge qualities besides its physical characteristics. The lightweight conveyance would boast low energy consumption and integrate LEDs for illumination.
