Innovative Design, Visionary Ideas

The experimental, concept, or “dream” car has long been a dynamic tool that allows designers to showcase and demonstrate next-generation automotive design ideas. Concept cars were not vehicles the public typically could purchase, but rather the testing ground for innovations that might find expression in automobiles produced years, or even decades, later. This exhibition explores the groundbreaking designs that sparked ideas of future possibility and progress.
