Volkswagen apparently had 119,000 ideas submitted to its People’s car Project that launched in China 11 months ago, but only came forth with three of them, and we have to admit that we’re not that impressed.
The magnetic levitation trains in Asia must have inspired a road user, as one of the ideas submitted uses a similar system to float just above the ground. It’s called the Hover Car and the major advantage is it produces zero emissions.

The so-called Music Car supposedly uses organic LEDs in such a way that it outwardly expresses the music inside the vehicle. Last but not least, there’s the Smart Key, which uses a screen to keep the owner of the car up to date with how much fuel he’s got, what the weather is like an if anybody is trying to do something to the car. This is the only really good idea of the three in our opinion.

"‘The ‘People’s Car Project’ in China marks the beginning of a new era in automobile design," said Luca de Meo, marketing director at the VW Group. "We are no longer just building cars for, but also with customers and at the same time initiating a national dialog which gives us a deep insight into the design preferences, needs and requirements of Chinese customers."

Mihnea's favorite cars have already been built, the so-called modern classics from the '80s and '90s. He also loves local car culture from all over the world, so don't be surprised to see him getting excited about weird Japanese imports, low-rider VWs out of Germany, replicas from Russia or LS swaps down in Florida.
