Bayer 1968



Built by the Farbenfabriken Bayer in Leverkusen and currently presented around the world plastic car is not a prototype in the sense that it would be the forerunner of a later production car. On the contrary, it is a demonstration object with which the Bayer wants to show possibilities to use plastic in automotive engineering on much larger scale. Not only the body, but also its foundation consist of plastic material in this car, while the mechanical elements came from the BMW 2000.
