For those of you eager to see what took place during the 2013 Essen Motor Show, then you're in luck. Here's a closer look at all the new and exciting luxury car models we're expecting to hit the streets in the near future.

Here's a strange concept car that made an appearance at China's Guangzhou Auto Show. The vehicle's unique safety feature is a fish tank. That's how safe its autonomous cars are going to be.
