Here is an illustrated collection of 250 examples of cars that vary wildly from the norm - cars that are instantly memorable for a variety of reasons. These cars, of all ages and types, reflect the personalities of those keen enough to court controversy by designing, making or owning them - people who want to make a statement by being different and individual. Many of the cars featured are undoubtedly objects of desire, or in the case of a few unfortunate examples, of ridicule, but they all stand out from the crowd and each one can lay proud claim to its status as an extreme car.
