6. Chinese farmer from Beijing built a unique car powered by the wind.

It took three months to construct and design the car, which measures 3 ft high and 10 ft long, Tang Zhengping said. The car operates on batteries and electric generators, which are charged by a large fan in the front and two solar batteries installed behind in the form of "wings". Tang Zhengping claims that his invention is better, than the modern electric cars gaining popularity as they can move faster and run longer on a single charge. The car speeds up to nearly 90 mph, and lasts longer, than cars which don't have generators.Two sets of batteries are charged from generators in turn: while one works, the second saves a charge. Thus, the batteries are needed to be recharged every two or three days.

9. Porcelain car.

If you don't have a porcelain ware or a porcelain model of car in your collection, there is Bugatti Veyron "L'Or Blanc" - just the one for you! Fantastically fast car decorated with a real porcelain is for sale $ 2'400'000. The legendary car manufacturing company Bugatti generated Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport model which reaches the speed over 250 mph — made very peculiar advertising trick. The company together with the German Königliche “Porzellan-Manufaktur” company, the maker of exclusive ceramic ware for the richest people, created Bugatti Veyron "L'Or Blanc" ("white gold"). The car is released in a single copy and differs from the co-brothers by its body, which is decorated with interesting wavy inserts made of snow-white porcelain. It's not recommended to meet even a minor accident for owner of this car: unlike steel or aluminum sheets, porcelain material very badly bends, so the auto body repair will be very difficult (specifically impossible) task! The selling price of the car makes $2,4 million, but it is possible to expect that the Chinese chryso-aristocracy who have an eye for a good porcelain will get it for a much more significant sum.
