I'd have a hard time picking between the Atlantic and the GT90.

There's always an exception to a rule

The rule in mind is: "Functional is beautiful".  The BMW Lovos, in combining PV panels as air brakes, breaks that rule.  Nightmare inducing!

Shall we leave the Honda Fuya-Jo in the better left unsaid category?

Daimler claiming they're jettisoning unnenessary ballast makes thier car look like a dune buggy wannabe, with less character and usefulness.  In the USA, such a vehicle might be usable in SoCal and Florida, but you'd not be able to take it on the beach.

Naperlou, I think Greg's right - they're big wheels.

Greg, I thought they were big wheels as well, but I am not so sure.  I think that the big circles around the doors are just for style and the wheels are all the same size.  Perhaps Chuck could check it out.

Definitely true, tekochip. It's a good thing that most of these vehicles never reached production. On the other hand, I do like the fact that the auto companies give their designers and engineers the freedom to dream up and build these concepts. I can't think of engineers in any other branch of technology that get this kind of opportunity.

I, too, would put the Chrysler Atlantic at or near the top of my list, naperlou. It's such a great-looking car, I can't believe they never produced it. Seems like it could have had a life as a small-volume, premium vehicle.

Kind of reminds you of the Paris runway fashions...... Some really strange ideas that you will never see on the street.

The Peugeot design won my vote as the most imaginative.  Gotta love those big wheels.
