Raquel Aparicio Lopezs Soft Vehicle concept is a delicately executed foam car, sporting a sensual slit across the profile for entry, and a zip in the rear for the boot.

In this case satellites from above and sensors on the road direct this driverless vehicle. 'I would like to extrapolate rubber, textile and other soft materials into vehicle design,' she says.
