THIS super-fast futuristic concept car pumps out 500kW, then transforms into extra rooms for your house. The French car maker unleashes a freaky concept car at the Frankfurt Motor Show that transforms to become an extra appendage of your country house…

The Renault Symbioz concept is a bona fide head-turning show car leaving you scratching your head in bewilderment. Is this truly a glimpse of the future or just science fiction?

Renault says the Symbioz features “real” technology and provides a strong hint a production car inspired by this concept car will be forthcoming in five years or so.

Power comes from a pair of electric motors kicking out a supercar-like 500kW/660Nm. As well as being an EV, the Symbioz has level 4 autonomous features, meaning it’ll drive itself even if you’re, say, changing out of your pyjamas on the way to work.

Drive it up to your specially built house and the car’s incredible folding doors and roof fully extend, allowing the Symbioz to become an extra room. Renault explains the car can “…be an open space like a living room where people can spend time together and talk. The cabin interior was inspired by the design of living rooms.”

The party trick to end them all – a car that transforms into a sitting room

It may seem far-fetched, but as ride-sharing, electric vehicles and autonomous cars start to make hit mainstream society, vehicles like this, with lounge-room layouts, could become common.

Ian O’Connell said he is delighted with the messages of support following his first broadcast as a presenter on Radio Kerry this week.

The well-known and popular Killarney man was left with life-changing injuries after falling from his bike in Killarney National Park in 2017.

Since the accident he has been a champion for the less fortunate under his mantra: “If you can’t stand up – standout”.

This was the inspiration behind his brand new radio show which aired for the first time on Wednesday evening.

‘Stand Out with Ian O’Connell’ will feature interviews with people who have overcome great adversary to reach even greater heights.

His first guest was fellow Killarney man Jordan Lee. The Paralympian represented Ireland in the Tokyo Olympics this summer.

“I was used to being in the studio from people interviewing me, but this time I turned the table,” he told the Killarney Advertiser.

“It was great to have Jordan on, two Killarney men! I really enjoyed it, it got a massive reaction and I got loads of emails and messages afterwards and into Thursday morning.”

Ian will reveal his guest for the show on the previous Monday through various social media channels.
