VW Slipstream

Volkswagen’s people car ethos has a downside: everyone has a car – and it’s even worse in 2057. In an effort to combat the unimaginably dense future, VW has created an autonomous vehicle that houses one occupant in glorious, muscle-atrophying conveyance. The Volkswagen Slipstream, will stand upright when toddling around at low speeds, and once you’ve hopped on the motorway in one of the designated “Slipstream” lanes, you can roll along at over 250 mph lying down, with only a duo of wheels and set of rear fins preventing an untimely demise. The aerodynamic shape of the tapered top, partnered with the aforementioned fins, keeps rolling resistance at a minimum, with power provided by “hyper-efficient” solar panels. Love the idea since I had a similar one some years ago ;)
