Balsa wood and glass floors were features of the Alpine-Renault A110... Gives incredible rigidity with minimal thickness and no worry about termites inside the glass.

Interestingly, the concept and design of modern cars such as Corvettes and Lotuses is a straight copy of what the French engineer Gregoire was trying unsuccessfully to push in the early 1950's with his Gregoire and Panhard cars...
Nice to see his ideas suceed today, albeit in a drawn instead of cast form.
