Car design is something that most people enjoy – especially car lovers. This interest in car design has never changed. And it is likely to continue. Over the years, some amazing cars have been designed. These cars not only afford luxury but also encompass new style and character. Performance and speed can also be boasted as part of car design. However, not all cars that are manufactured are always great to look at. The comfort quotient might continue to be there, but the vehicle has looked somewhat strange. Personalizing these vehicles with a private number plate would surely give them a boost, however strange they may look.

Here’s a quick look at some of the most bizarre cars ever manufactured.

A vehicle looking like an egg – this concept is not new anymore. But once it was. And when the 1942 Oeuf electrique was introduced, it took the world by storm. The car’s name itself means electric egg. It could be termed as a green one – because it used battery instead of gasoline to run, although that was pretty long ago. And electric cars weren’t as cool back then as today.

This car was designed by the French industrial designer Paul Arzens. He was a painter in earlier life and also designed railway locomotives. The car that Arzens designed had the appearance of a bubble and was made from hand-formed aluminium and cured Plexiglass.
