Concept cars can be pretty far out. The fact that they are “concepts” means that automotive designers and engineers can let their imaginations wander when designing potential new vehicles. Free of the need for the cars to have any practical necessity, the designers can literally push the envelope of what is possible when it comes to concepts for the next generation of vehicles. And this free reign has led to some truly bizarre car concepts over the years. Designers at many of the biggest and most influential automotive companies in the world have come forward with car concepts that have to be seen to be believed. Here are 10 really far out concept cars for your consideration.
10. Fiat EYE
Looking more like a futuristic pod than a car, the Fiat EYE definitely catches the human eye and holds people’s gaze. The concept for this car was actually inspired by the Segway scooter. And the designers at Fiat describe this vehicle as being “gyroscopically-balanced” meaning that it can maintain its balance while the weight shifts between the two wheels. While this vehicle may not look practical, its design is quite sophisticated. In fact, the Fiat EYE was designed so that its owners can control the car’s functions using their voice. Sophisticated voice recognition technology would enable people to open the doors, start the engine, turn on the headlights and even park the car using only their voice. Think of it as Siri on steroids.
