    Optimism is back in style in the automotive world. The concept cars on display during the 2010 LA Auto Show prove that automakers are again willing to take risks and push boundaries. After a couple dismal years of sales due to a global recession, manufacturers are exhibiting a renewed sense of creativity.

    Some of the concept cars seen in Los Angeles rely on heritage to spark a new ideas for the 21st century. The aggressive-looking Audi Quattro Concept is a modern interpretation of the German company's famous all-wheel-drive sport coupes from the 1980s.

    Other automakers chose to break all the rules and display cars that look ready to take flight or travel through time. The Jaguar C-X75 and Mercedes-Benz Biome concepts are not only wildly futuristic, they're absolutely gorgeous, and a sign of even more good things to come.[/p]

    The jag is probably the most impressive. Using jet turbines is amazing. They are thinking of putting the car into production [​IMG]
    Also, you've got the Mazda Shinari Concept, the Chervrolet Camaro Convertible and the Porsche Cayman R as intresting concepts and reveals.
    The favourites are probably all the new Lotuses and the new Nissan GT-R.

    hahaha no, but they use the turbines to recharge the batteries because they produce more elektricity when hooked up to a generator [​IMG]

    I love the Jaguar concept.

    On the other hand, the mere description of that Mercedes thing (is grown from seeds, runs on unicorn farts and kitten giggles, and emits pure oxygen and cures baldness while driving) makes me want to kick puppies. It's one thing to plan ahead (and it's gonna be years before any of the concepts enter production, even the ones based on existing technology), it's another thing to leave the realm of possible entirely and design elven chariots driven by pink ponies and fairy dust.
