2008 LA Auto Show: Concept Cars

2008 LA Auto Show: Concept Cars

By Evan Ackerman

Exotic cars are impressive, but they tend to be bound by reality and practicality… If you’re going to buy one, you expect certain things. Things like the ability to drive it somewhere. On a road. Legally. Concept cars suffer no such restrictions, which is why I like to ogle them so much. They’re all about being incredibly super awesome looking and nothing else. After the jump, I’ve posted a gallery of concept cars from the 2008 LA Auto Show… Click on the thumbnails for big versions.

Dodge Zeo Concept

Four passenger electric sport wagon, 0-60 in 5.7 seconds, 250 mile range at 120 mpg equivalent, 130 mph top speed, WiFi enabled.

    FWIW, that's where the radiators for the fuel cells are, as well as the hydrogen tanks.

    I like the Jeep Renegade. It has the looks of being sporty. Quite sci-fi accents on the body PLUS it has the BLUETEC diesel engine.
