I got a chance to take the VW ID Buggy for a spin, and it's fair to say it left a lasting impression.

Some cars look fast standing still, other cars look just plain otherworldly, and the Aston Martin Valhalla manages to look a little of both in its first public testing. The mid-engined supercar formerly known as the AM-RB 003 began its languorous teasing back in March, but it's only now - coinciding with Pebble Beach and Monterey Car Week - that the British automaker is ready to show the Valhalla driving in earnest.

The Ferrari 512S Modulo is a spaceship-like slice of automotive legend

The world has no shortage of rare and award-winning Ferraris, but none look so dramatic as the spaceship-on-wheels Ferrari 512S Modulo. Created back in 1970 by famed design studio Pininfarina, the memorable one-off wouldn't look out of place on the set of 2001: A Space Odyssey. Actually getting it into the running state it finds itself today, though, might have been tougher even than making Kubrick's classic.

Mercedes' car took a different tack, but was no less striking for it.

Even if it's not entirely clear what exact category the Audi PB18 e-tron falls into - the "hatchback-station-wagon single-seater electric performance coupe" is a woefully-underrepresented segment, sadly - one thing is abundantly obvious. Audi is definitely preparing for an electrified future which diverges significantly from what we know of as supercars today. Having seen the PB18 e-tron at Monterey Car Week 2018 this week, I'm ready to say I'm along for the ride.

Some may have forgotten, but way back in 2011 boutique carmaker SSC North America revealed a concept for the SSC Tuatara, promising it to be a real American-made "hypercar."
