The Cryano GT is an automotive study, which shows a new approach in terms of lightweight design and efficient mobility. Concerning materials and their characteristics the concept strikes a new path which is also visible through its shapes. Therefore the vehicle has a computer generated and topology-optimized endoskeleton made out of nanotube reinforced polymers. Infrastructural components and a zero-emission hydrogen-cryo-drive are integrated. Usual car body parts were replaced with a flexible and an extremely light foil, which spans the lightweight structure.
