The Coolest Concept Cars ever created
Our ability to drive innovation through creative visualization has helped us explore the reaches of space, put powerful computers into our pockets and design some bad-ass car concepts.
There’s always been a seed of futurism in automobiles: Manufacturers and hobbyists alike have been crafting unique vehicles for decades, sometimes to test out fresh, new tech and other times to indulge in space-age fantasies. Below, we explore some of the more notable concept cars that have been created over the years, from the utilitarian to the fantastic.
Pontiac “Ghost Car”
General Motors had a unique vehicle design on display at its “Highways and Horizons” pavilion at the 1939-40 World’s Fair. A 1939 Pontiac Deluxe Six was customized in collaboration with the Rohm & Haas chemical company, which had developed a new material called Plexiglas. Dubbed the “Ghost Car,” this vehicle was sheathed in the clear material and included a chromed dashboard and white tires to round out the spooky design.
