Hats off to the creators of these cars. How they could come up with those ideas for the car dashboard is beyond me. Dig right in to see for yourself!

1. 1972 Maserati Boomerang

The moment I saw it, my minds immediately popped out the image of a bonker, where I would retreat into if a natural disaster occurs. Also, I think I should look like Arnold Schwarzenegger if I want to operate this, judging by its heavy and metallic look!

My gut feelings tell me to exercise much more if I want to get that thing moving

2. Citroen Xenia Concept (1981)

The buttons look like the ones in a calculator and that stick-pad in the middle serves only god knows what purpose. Whoever created this must have a thing for calculation and a very, very confusing mind, I suppose.

Why the unnecessarily large steering holding stick?

3. 1982 Lancia Orca

This is a stark example of someone who just loves arcade games but chose to work in the automotive career. Speaking for myself, I would certainly put a “there’s no reset button” warning on the dashboard, just in case.

When your gaming passion meets with your career path!

4.1983 Citroen GSA Pallas

This one belongs to a famous manufacturer which creates one of the latest supercars, Citroen. That is not to say this design is good. If any, it gives me the feeling I’d get when I see wartime photos.

This isn't bad, just that you wouldn't expect it on a supercars

5. Aston Martin Lagonda 1984

Space optimization at its worst. The leg rest areas are unnecessarily spacious and the whole car resembles a huge arcade machine of the 90s.

6. 1988 Pontiac Banshee

I have 2 words for this car: Dr Octopus. According to an unconfirmed, unofficial but totally trustworthy source, the director of the famous movie Spiderman came up with his idea by looking at this car.

Rumor has it that the Spiderman movie originated from this car...

7.  Fiat Multipla 2002

To the creator of this car: "This is a car, not a mini yoga class, sir". Driving this car for an extended period of time and you’ll find your neck unsurprisingly inclined toward the right.

Being creative is not always good, for example, don't make tilted odometers

8. 2012 Pagani Huayra

Okay, this one is actually not that bad and it’s installed in the beast 2012 Pagani Huayra. Still, those sparkling ornaments are a bit too much to our taste, as details in a supercar are suppose to be optimized so that the driver could concentrate on the road.

Fancy as it may seem, those details are a tad too much IMO
