A host of outlandish car designs have been rolled out for the annual LA auto show Design Challenge.
Each year a different theme spurs California’s many design studios into creating an automotive vision of the future.
This time around the brief is “Youthmobile 2030”, looking at what the youth of today, raised on mobile phones, web cams and online communities, will want from a car in 20 years time.
The challenge is also to look at the idea of conventional car ownership and how this might change. Entries this year come from Audi, General Motors, Honda, Mazda, Nissan and Toyota.
The winner will be announced at this year’s LA show.
