The Rinspeed Oasis is an autonomous urban electric car with an unusual feature – behind its windscreen is a small garden plot, where drivers with green fingers can grow radishes or cultivate bonsai trees.
Making the two-seater cabin even more like a mobile living room are its armchairs, wood floor, multi-purpose storage box and 5K widescreen infotainment system with voice-andgesture control. The steering wheel can be folded flat to become a work surface, complete with Microsoft Office software and Skype video telephony. Just bring your own keyboard.
This concept car would be ideal for a garden city such as Singapore.
PIRELLI CALENDAR 2017
This year’s edition of the world’s most collectable “tyre calendar” was shot by Peter Lindbergh, who also photographed the 2002 and 1996 editions.
The 2017 Cal features 15 women, including actresses Zhang Ziyi, Julianne Moore, Nicole Kidman and Uma Thurman. Only 100 elusive copies will be in “circulation” for South East Asia.
At the Paris launch of his latest work, Lindbergh quipped: “Everyone in this calendar, at one point in my life, I wanted to marry. I just didn’t have the balls to ask them!”
