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.
