Made as a promotional tool for a shoe company in China, this shoe-shaped electric car seats two and gets them up to about 400km at the lovely speed of 50km/h. The body of the car itself is made like a normal shoe and needed 5 bulls for the leather to cover it.

A design by an Iranian artist, Mohammad Ghezel, the eRinGo has a passenger compartment that sits squarely in the centre of a giant hub. The rings are driven by an electric motor and uses a gyroscope and wheels to keep it upright when cornering. The best part of the eRinGo? It has two steering wheels, one of which locks when not in use; this allows for drivers to take over without having to stop. It’s not out but wouldn’t you love to see this on the road?
