While the vast majority make do with staring at high-end performance sports cars such as a Ferrari, there are even more spectacular vehicles that are often hidden away at exhibitions and trade shows where the general public can’t see them. These are concept cars that are able to take the breath away and the ones from 2017 are no exception.
