20 Crazy Concept Car Designs

The design of the car has come a long way over the years.  Who knew that when the first Model T came off the assembly line that we would one day have hybrids and solar powered cars?  While we have the engineers to thank for actually making these cars a reality, there is an unsung hero who we should also thank.  That hero is the concept car artists who have the imagination to think of such unique and inspiring vehicles.

If you have never had the luxury of making it to car show, you should check it out some time.  It is at these major car shows that car manufactures show off many of their new ideas in car design.  At these events you can see a number of wild concept cars up close in personal.

For those of you who can’t make it to a car show though, we have compiled photos and renderings of 20 concept cars.  Some of these cars are really out there!  Check them out and let us know what you think in the comments below.

2010 Ford Fusion & Mercury Milan Pricings

2010 Ford Fusion

The new 2010 Ford Fusion and Mercury Milan, America’s most fuel-efficient mid-size sedans, offer the best value in their segment with starting prices of $19,995 and $21,905, including delivery and destination, respectively. The gas engine-powered and hybrid-electric models leapfrog the competition in every area that counts: fuel economy, power, technology and overall value.

“We’ve priced Fusion to beat the competition as it does in every area that matters most to customers,” said Chantel Lenard, Ford group marketing manager, Global Small and Medium Cars. “This vehicle does more than compete; it aggressively positions Ford to take back its share of the mid-size car segment and sets the tone for the upcoming Taurus and Fiesta launches.” read more »
