A concept car is usually created by the design division of a large automobile company for the presentation of new styling and technological innovations.
These cars are never designed to go on sale with the general public but often are sent to various automobile salvage yards when their use has played out.
For just what concept cars are all about, one should check out the Bugatti Veyron series. Now reported to be one of the world's most
expensive cars with a price tag around $1million, the Bugatti Veyron is also one of the most streamlined and fastest car in the automotive market
today. It sports a 16 cylinder engine developing around 1000 horsepower.
The Buick Y-Job, developed in the late 1930's, is generally credited as being the first modern concept car. Features and innovations that were part
of the Y-Job appeared gradually over the 1940's in both the Buick and Cadillac car models. Buick, a division of General Motors, continues to be
consistent in the introduction of features for future automobiles. One feature that has been copied and used to enhance the appearance of many cars
was the placement of three or four pothole ports directly on the fender behind the wheels. This involves simply purchasing the portholes, removing the adhesive
backing, and sticking them on the car where required.
