Groovy French Pod Car


“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.
