Anne Forschner’s BMW Lovos is what car concepts are all about: it may look creatively insane, but each of its 260 hinged pieces are solar photovoltaic cells that double as air brakes.

2011 Ford Super Duty

2011 Ford Super Duty

Its large schnoz will inhale a Smart car, but Ford’s 2011 Super Duty means business: it’s an F-450/F-350 hybrid truck with a 33,000 lb. weight rating and a turbo 6.7L V8 diesel.
