The Touch Effect Concept Car isn't your typical vehicle proposal; it marks a revolutionary digital design that will change the way we interact with virtual technology forever. Making the experience much more real than ever before, by 2030 the Touch Effect Concept Car hopes to engage users in a thrilled race event in addition to simply letting owners sit in and drive the futuristic sports car.

Designed by Marco Sweston, the Touch Effect Concept Car is impressive even if solely based on its looks. Inspired by the Mercedes-Benz W25 from 1933, it is also influenced by the human body. Made from a flexible synthetic with exterior acrylic glass surfaces that partially surround its 'muscles,' this concept car becomes one with the driver, moving as though it were an extension of his or her own body.
