Rutgers 1

The ‘Rutgers 1’ is a vehicle without compromise. It has been designed to serve a single purpose: to offer one person the unadulterated experience of moving from one place to another. This car forces the driver to focus on the act of driving, which is why it has been stripped of all secondary elements: no doors, no additional seats, no boot. Instead of seducing you with a sense of freedom, its unique steering mechanism and its imposing yet elegant shape command a certain respect, perhaps even fear, to make sure you are there, intent and focused, for the whole unique journey.
