Concept Car Designs - From the Planet Crayon

Nanotechnology, cars that eventually become palm trees, a bio-diesel vehicle that recycles itself—these are the lines along which the bright young things in Californian car styling studios are thinking. With so many makers having design facilities on the west coast, the LA Auto Show has used this situation to its advantage by running a competition each year for the most exciting new concept. This year's entrants included Mercedes-Benz, Volkswagen, Mini and Audi.
