Redesigned VW Westfalia

It's not a hybrid and it's not specifically designed to run on bio-fuel—heck it's not even in production yet--but damn it's efficient and cool. Redesigned for the modern age by Verdier with spankin' new technology, this version of the VW rooftop camper recently won the Michelin Design Challenge 2004, and will be presented for the first time... at the Detroit Car Show next month. Built to "restore the primary function" of the original VW Westfalia, the vehicle is a small mobile home meant to allow users to enjoy a weekend in the country. But it's not just a funky fresh object, it also "defines a way of life"—with simplicity, efficiency, and beauty. We totally want one, and our parents weren't even hippies. Zipcar, won't you purchase a few? ::Verdier [by MO]
