“Honey, I’m taking the Bubble Mobile to the disco!” This wacky concept car from 1970s France was called l’Automodule. Designed by engineer Jean Pierre Ponthieu, the vehicle was equipped with a small two-stroke engine, a hydraulic transmission and electronic controls. It was capable of turning on a single point and changing its ground clearance… perfect for dodging kids in the parking lot!

Below: See l’Automodule in action… along with the Rhino, a French military concept vehicle. Don’t miss pictures of this awkward beast at the bottom of the page.
