The cars hitting the auto shows and even showroom floors these days are pretty awesome, but when you combine Back to the Future technology with new age technology really cool things happen.  Nothing quite as awesome as leaving flaming tire marks as you head into the future, but still something Doc Brown would be proud of.

#1* - DeLorean DMC-12 EV
