One thing you can always count on seeing at auto shows is the totally outrageous concept car. These are pie-in-the-sky designs that car markers come up with to showcase possible future technology and materials, or just a head-turning cool new look.

Concept cars rarely ever actually make it into production for consumers to buy off the showroom floor, although thankfully, as in the case of the original Dodge Viper, they sometimes do. However, I wouldn't expect to see this latest one from Chevy on the road, though. Just wait until you see the unbelivable photos on the next page to understand why.

It's called the Chevrolet FNR and it was all the buzz of the Shanghai Auto Show thanks to its jaw-dropping looks. Sporting massive amounts of glass, hubless wheels, "dragonfly" doors, crystal laser headlights, iris-scanning security system, virtual dashboard and gesture control, it was everything today's sedans are not.

Plus, it's meant to be self driving, which explains the lack of a steering wheel and the front seats that can swivel 180 degrees to face backwards. Riders simply tell the Chevy Intelligent Assistant software where they want to go and it delivers them there, and in style.
