Like the Le Sabre XP-8, the Buick Centurion was another General Motors Experimental Vehicle. In addition to its striking aerodynamic body, the most intelligent feature of the Centurion was a rear mounted camera with a wide angle lends, plus a 4 x 6-inch screen embedded in the dash. This meant a rear-view mirror wasn't necessary. What's more, its steering wheel was mounted on a flat arm chrome column that swung out of the dash like some of the airliners of the time.
The 'Dream Cars: Innovative Design, Visionary Ideas' exhibition is currently taking place in the High Museum of Art in Atlanta, Georgia.
The exhibition is a celebration of innovative automotive design that brings together 17 concept cars from Ferrari, Bugatti, Ford, General Motors, Porsche and other manufacturers from Europe and the United States.
The cars shown range in age from the early 1930s to the present day. These are a reflection of design trends born from the contemporary social and political developments of the time that pushed the designers' imagination. In addition to the cars on show, the exhibition features conceptual drawings and scale models to demonstrate the stages of the car design process.
Here we take a look at some of the most visionary designs at the Dream Cars exhibition. In many cases it's amazing how many of the ideas have carried over into production cars of today...
