Cool Future Cars Highlighted at Detroit Auto Show: Concept Cars

Autonomous may be the hot topic in automobiles these days, but flashy and funky are also taking center stage at auto shows this year, with concept cars that will thrill the kid in you.

From a VW van that truly deserves the nickname Dream Machine (ala’ Scooby Doo and Shaggy), to a Lincoln Navigator tailor-made for James Bond’s lifestyle, the cars of the future make it clear we have plenty to be excited about.

These photos show just a few of the cars of the future recently highlighted at the Detroit Auto Show.

Some of the changes are minor–like the mesh metal look you see in the mirror or roof of the car below…other changes are bigger, like the thinner, less rubber looking wheels and tires.  And the doors. Don’t get me started on how different all the doors are. Some changes can already be seen in vehicles (the tablet type dashboard), and others are at least a decade away.  Take a look and let me know what you think is the most fun (or flashy or funky).
