Although concept cars rarely make it beyond the auto show floor, the cool and futuristic vehicles tend to be the biggest showstoppers at auto shows around the globe. The New York Auto Show is set to host a crop of such showstoppers, with new concepts from Aston Martin and Buick set to make an appearance. The show has also featured many memorable concept cars in previous years, from the original Hummer and Prius concepts to cars never seen on the streets but only in film, like Audi's RSQ.
Check out the full list of concept cars that have made their way to the New York Auto Show, as well as the year each one made their New York debut.
