A group of Dutch researchers recently took the wraps off what they claim to be the world's first open source car, rolling out their "c,mm,n" vehicle (pronounced "common") at the AutoRAI car show in Amsterdam for all to see and potentially modify. While it's not clear if that open sourceness extends to the whole thing running on Linux, you will be able to get your hands on the vehicle's complete technical drawings and blueprints, and of course submit your own tweaks and improvements for others to do as they please with. As it currently stands, the car keeps things environmentally-friendly with a hydrogen engine, and apparently lets "c,mm,n" drivers share traffic information with one another, although that would seem to be be a less than effective solution until folks start modding these en masse.
