Proof Of Concept

Experimental cars are exactly that; an experiment. From the start, these conceptual vehicles allowed automakers to flex their creative muscles.

The earliest experimental cars acted as a visual mission statement, a masterwork to which other designers and engineers should aspire. Some were so forward thinking that in one case, a technology introduced in a General Motors “Dream Car” proved to be 52 years ahead of its time.
