The road to contemporary car design has been marked by wacky ideas, and some of the most bizarre will be on display starting May 21 at the High Museum of Art in Atlanta.
An exhibition called “Dream Cars: Innovative Design, Visionary Ideas” will feature 17 futuristic-looking concept vehicles from throughout Europe and the United States.

Holding the opinion that I do still believe Self-Driving or Autonomous Vehicles are a luxury rather than a necessity…
These are some of the most unique and strangest vehicles you’ve ever seen.
The show includes Paul Arzens’ 1942 L’Oeuf électrique, a bubble-shaped “electric egg” vehicle that is made from aluminum, is equipped with a single pedal and steering wheel, and looks like a precursor to the modern-day electric SmartCar.
The show also includes William Stout’s 1936 Scarab, which is considered an ancestor of the contemporary minivan, General Motors’ 1953 rocket-shaped Firebird I XP-21 and BMW’s 2001 GINA Light Visionary Model, which is covered with fabric.
“The experimental, concept, or ‘dream’ car has long been a dynamic tool that allows designers to showcase and demonstrate forward-thinking automotive design ideas,” the show’s statement said. “Concept cars were not vehicles the public typically could purchase, but rather the testing ground for innovations that might find expression in automobiles produces years, or even decades, later.”
“This exhibition explores the groundbreaking designs that sparked ideas of future possibility and progress,” the statement said.
