According to Chris Bangle, Chief of Design for BMW Group, GINA stands for "Geometry and Functions in 'N' Adaptations". This freedom of creation is given to the BMW GINA by elastic, waterproof, and very durable textile fabric "skin" pulled taunt around metal and carbon fibre frame.

The shape of the cars can be changed in a minute by "pressing one button", which controls GINA's electro-hydraulic shaping system, so the headlights can "turn on" like blinking eye, or the hood can be open like surgeon opens patients body.
