Not every design deserves to go into production. Here are some of the ugliest concept cars ever conceived.
As awkward as this car's name is, the design is even worse. It's like someone took a sedan and stretched its dimensions in all the wrong ways.
BMW's X Coupe concept of the early 2000s seems like a cross between a late 2000s 1 Series and an Alfa Romeo SZ. The proportions are just off somehow, and that face isn't the most attractive thing out there.
Not all of Aston Martin's designs are pretty. Take this one for example. It's an SUV concept revealed at Geneva in 2009 called the Lagonda, and it was just weird. We think its upcoming DBX SUV will look a lot nicer.
The Super8 was a mash of too many designs into one vehicle. Everything from Dodge's crosshair grille, to suicide doors, to a 1950s-style curved windshield. None of it really worked. At least it had a Hemi.
The Concept-A is what happens when designers take the original VW Buggy and try to turn it into a four-door crossover. The result wasn't ideal.
Aside from its strange proportions, the Acura Advanced sedan has a slew of strange styling cues that leave us wondering how it made it out of the design room.
Designed by a Catholic priest in the late 1950s, the Aurora Safety Car is remembered largely for its strange, caved-in appearance and bulbous fenders.
The Fuya-Jo is pretty much like every other city transport vehicle out there, except this one was built in 1999. It also looks like a character straight out of Star Wars.
Buick's practical hatch concept looks like the cross between a Bentayga and a smushed in 2005 Maserati Quattroporte.
Kia's 2005 pickup concept looks pretty normal until you get the fascia. It looks like something off an entry-level hatch grafted onto a massive pickup bumper.
The production Pontiac Aztek isn't much to look at, but it's not nearly as bad as the original concept.
The "Rambo" Mustang was one of several prototypes in 1990, and looks too much like a bad bodykit to us.
The original Polo was a pretty boxy car. Car designer Luigi Colani did away with all the hard lines and came up with this thing. It's not an improvement.
The 2002 Bel Air convertible concept makes it seem like the designers were trying pretty hard to make something retro.
