Renault Twizy Is the Car of the Future in "The Zero Theorem"

It's already been two years since Renault put the Twizy on sale in France, back in March 2012. Since then, the electric car market has grown in leaps and bounds, but none of the other company has been brave enough to offer a quadricycle instead of a regular car with doors and a boot, which makes Renault a bit eccentric and also a groundbreaker. However, the French runabout has not gone unnoticed, as Renault's bravery is being rewarded with a leading movie role.
"The Zero Theorem" is a truly unique movie about the future, not one where we're battling aliens but one in which individuality is lost. Staring leading actor Christopher Waltz, whom you probably know as Nazi Colonel Hans Landa from Inglorious Basterds, the movie was directed by Terry Gilliam and written by Pat Pa Rushin.

Qohen Leth is a compute genius who is trying to use formulas to determine if life has any meaning. His reclusiveness is constantly irritated by an effervescent society in why the bubbly Twizy from Renault plays a major role. The 2.3 meter vehicle is the main vehicle used by almost everybody in the movie, which is why Renault sent over a fleet of 15 cars.

Flattering as it might be, the French quad's leading role give off a bad vibe. Sanitize, overembelished and generic – if that's the future of transportation we'd rather skip this version of the future and live in the apocalyptic Mad Max universe.

Mihnea's favorite cars have already been built, the so-called modern classics from the '80s and '90s. He also loves local car culture from all over the world, so don't be surprised to see him getting excited about weird Japanese imports, low-rider VWs out of Germany, replicas from Russia or LS swaps down in Florida.
