Auto shows are known for their exposition of the awesome, the insane, and even the impossible. This year’s Frankfurt Motor Show was no exception.

Here are six automobiles that drove a fascinating week of news at home.

This is one concept car the public is more than happy to receive. The GLA from Frankfurt can wait.
