Have you ever wondered having a car so weird that anyone would take a look at you while you’re getting down that hill? How come that people had the idea to even design these cars? Didn’t they get the hint from others that these would never work? Well, these are a lot of questions to answer as we don’t really have a clue about the people behind these really weird cars. So take a moment and look at 5 of the weirdest automobiles in the world. Would you like to be seen driving one of these?
1942 Oeuf Electrique
The strange shining little car that is an invention of the engineer Paul Arzens. This little car was invented during the worst times of the Nazi occupation of Paris. It was called at first the egg because of its shape and later on the “Electric Egg”. Because of the needed material, it could only be produced once and Arzens never forgot about it, he kept it in his collection and now it has been passed to a museum in Mulhouse, France. Despite its shape, simplicity to use and its lightness, a lot of people would have bought it today. However, if you think this is the weirdest one, wait till you see the other four weird automobiles that made it to our list.
1955 Chrysler (Ghia) Streamline X “Gilda”
How cool would it be to own a jet plane looking car? Well, Scott Grund for owns it. He bought it from the museum of Henry Ford for only $125,000. This car might be the coolest Chrysler ever; it was named after Rita Hayworth’s role in the movie of the same name. It looks definitely weird, yet very cool to have something like this. The guy that bought it remodelled the car a little bit, by installing a gas turbine as it was intended to be at first by its inventors.
1935 Bugatti Type 57S Competition Coupe Aerolithe
This Bugatti type was definitely a special one created by Jean Bugatti. This unique and in the same time weird car made its presence in the 1930s. It was sold to Rene Chatard who had an accident with his female friend. What was left of the car was confiscated by the French police. Since then it went to a lot of others hands, while the full restoration was made by Paul Russell in 2006.
1936 Stout Scarab
Stout Scarab is an American minivan, though it looks more like a cockroach. It was designed by William B. Stout in 1936. It really looks very weird though the concept was pretty thoughtful at first. Its long body wasn’t seen before this minivan as designed.
1970 Ferrari (Pininfarina) 512 S Modulo
This concept car designed by Paolo Martin is definitely out of this earth. It looks pretty amazing. It was first introduced in 1970 in Geneva Motor Show. It has a low body, and all four wheels are partly covered. This car should have been in a movie featuring the future because it definitely looks like some aliens drove it back here on earth.
