The Honda Puyo can be termed as the “Weird-great Puyo”. The little information we found on this ‘weirdo’ car tells us that this is a concept car
which runs on hydrogen fuel. Unlike the fuel-cell powered Honda FCX
, the Puyo prides on "no sharp edges" and is covered in soft silicone so that it can absorb light collisions. If you are planning to ride this, you have to use a joystick instead of a steering wheel. What Honda
forgot to mention in the ad of this car is that you also need to be a serious Matt Groening (creator of the Simpsons cartoon family) fan to actually own one of these and dare to drive it around the block!
Mercedes-Benz Count Trossi SSK
The luxury car maker Mercedes-Benz
has named this "Count Trossi" SSK after the "aristocratic" Italian race-car driver Count Carlo Felice Trossi. This car actually has a very stylish set of wheels, despite having 'weird car design'
. This car had been extremely successful in the Le Mans
, Monaco, and the Mille Miglia
There are only four original models of the Count Trossi SSK in the world and each is a 'holy grail' among car collectors. Recently one model from 1929 sold for US$7.4 million!
The GMC PAD is the answer to American automobile manufacturers’ lack of innovation (A gross generalization!!! No offense meant) The GMC is not just a car, but an entire home. It’s where you live, work, or if it has to be put in this way, merely where you want to be.
The GMC PAD, an urban loft with mobility, is a concept for living in the ever-changing cultural landscape. It’s a home ownership concept that enables cultural and geographic freedom for the modern city dweller. Its photo-voltaic cells collect sun rays during the day as the energy source. And to be even more hippie-happy, of course, the vehicle features aptly named LifeMode
, fit for life, and then for a drive. An innovation par excellence is what we like to say.
This strange cute yellow thing is the Peugeot Honey-B and like its namesake looks pretty much like a big honey bee on wheels! It seems like a Peugeot car designer must have got stung by a honeybee one day and he decided to immortalize his ‘honeybee experience’ and came up with this strange car.
Like bees, it is aerodynamic, but unlike bees, it is a Sports Utility Vehicle
) powered by hydrogen fuel cells. This Honey-B boasts of seats with techno-cool hydraulic arms that help various preset adjustments which means they retract automatically to your preferred position once you're seated!
Nissan Moon Buggy
Fueled by imagination, designer Robert Hoffmann drew up this Nissan Moon Buggy concept for an auto magazine. This weird car is very unlikely to go into production. This strange Nissan Moon Buggy has been inspired by the Lunar Modules.
The car has oversize rear wheels that are supposed to provide more efficiency in maneuverability. Not only that, when it reaches high speeds, Ailerons are deployed for increased aerodynamics
, Ailerons are commonly found on fixed-wing aircraft!
To be honest, the car looks like a cross between an alien and an iPod.
The design brief for Bombadier Embrio Concept was to "create highly innovative, functional and exciting products to exceed people's recreational needs" and find the "next thing" in recreational vehicles. God only knows, whether you will find the "next thing" in this one-wheeler.
This strange Embrio is powered hydrogen fuel
cells. The Embrio also got infrared night vision and an active suspension
that adjusts to road conditions, thanks to a computerized network of sensors and gyroscopes
. To drive it, there's an accelerator trigger on the left handlebar, to stop it, simply use a brake trigger on the right handlebar! The Embrio is made of lightweight materials like aluminum, magnesium and nylon - weighing only 360 pounds!

Nissan Pivo 2
Who says no car designers design cars for gals? The Nissan Pivo 2 is just not a ‘girlie-girlie’ car concept but a very urbane one in that! It is powered by advanced compact lithium-ion batteries
and features a unique rotating cabin, which means no reverse gear is required! The four wheels are powered by electric engine
and can turn through 90 degrees to allow the Pivo 2 to drive sideways as well as forward.
The Pivo 2 looks as if it has come from the Pixar Studio!
Here's a second entry of Peugeot in this list! This one's called the Peugeot Moovie and is the result of imagination of Andre Costa of Portugal.
Actually, this Peugeot Moovie is a result of the Third Peugeot Design Competition
. This competition was to encourage designers from all over the world to submit their designs for a Peugeot car they would like to drive. And the bizarre Moovie came first. (Can you believe this?!?)
The rear wheels of the car are actually part of the doors and have multiple functions: allowing access to the cabin and also reducing energy consumption because of its extra- large set of tires.
What a whale of a concept! This wacky and wonderful Mercedes Colani monster is the brainchild of Swiss industrial designer Luigi Colani. Primarily crafted to improve aerodynamics, this 12.6 liter, 6-cylinder diesel behemoth features weird windshields with a central hub and a three-spoke wiper system. And flaunting their super Mercedes logo upfront with pride, who could blame them?
And last but not the least; let's not forget the workmanship of old classic weird makeovers! Made from 2 MB wagons
and a Chrysler Imperial
, this is no ordinary van! Contains a stove, microwave, freezer, TV, two air-conditioners and even a bed for two! Has been featured on at least 7 TV shows, over 20 times in newspapers and magazines including the Discovery Channel!
