The 9th Los Angeles Auto Show recently unveiled an amazing lineup of futuristic concept cars designed by some of the biggest names in auto manufacturing. Manufacturers such as Honda, Mercedes and luxury car maker Maybach are all competing for a "green" award at the auto show, where they were all challenged to come up with "comfortable, stylish and safe" vehicles that would weigh no more than 1,500 lbs (that is lighter than a Mini Metro) and run on renewable fuels. From vehicles that generate energy by absorbing light to cars powered by compressed air to innovative ways to "grow" cars rather than build them, read on for six of our favorite designs!
Now before you start looking for the flying car that Back To The Future Part II promised us we’d have by 2015, I must warn you that you won’t find it. What you will find however are some of the most innovative car designs this author has ever seen. Click on the above gallery to see some of the stunning designs and stay tuned – the winner of the seventh annual Design Challenge , will be announced on November 18.
