The chassis of the two-seater is an aluminium construction weighing just 89 kilograms. The bodywork styling resembles that of a jet. The vehicle is as long as a regular car, but not as wide – so that it can lean into bends. The F 300 Life Jet has room for two persons seated one behind the other. The special features of the body include an upward-opening, spacesaving, hinged door for the driver, a hinged door which swings to the rear for the passenger, and a fixed two-part roof made of aluminium and transparent plastic. In good weather, the two halves of the roof can be removed in a jiffy and stowed in a compartment aft of the rear wheel, thus converting the F 300 Life Jet into an open roadster.
The lighting technology is in keeping with the unusual vehicle concept. The headlight has three reflector sections and two bulbs. The headlight electronics ensure the best possible roadway illumination including in bends. They are linked to the Active Tilt Control computer and turn the headlight to conform to the body tilt; when required, they also cut in a special cornering light. This increases the range of the low-beam headlight by more than 80 percent. A light sensor controls the beam: the light comes on automatically at dusk and when the vehicle enters a tunnel. Neon lamps are used for the indicators, brake lights and marker lights. The slender tubes are accommodated in the wings.
