A concept car is an experimental vehicle that showcases stylistic and technological innovations. They are often show n at motor shows to measure consumer reaction to new and sweeping design s that can, at times, be so far advanced as to appear bizarre. They are intended to inflate passion and to inspire the imagination. And they are created primarily to advance ideas rather than to become production realities them selves.
