The modular car

The modular car is an automobile that you can design yourself.

Dutch designer Marijn van der Poll would provide a blank canvas of a car, with the fundamentals of chassis, engine and the rest simply surrounded by a cube of polyurethane foam (the same material used for surfboards).
People would have to go at the cube with a saw and a piece of sandpaper to attain their desired shape, then take it to a body-shop to be laminated in glassfibre and polyester resin. (more images in Vivid)
