3.) Audi R18 e-tron Quattro
Suggested By: Gamecat235
Why it's a marvel: It's hard to think of any car that could go as fast for as long as the winner of this year's 24 Hours of Le Mans. It's a diesel hybrid, but it uses a flywheel instead of batteries. It is packed with the most advanced race car technology available, from the suspension, the aerodynamics, to the four-wheel-drive system.
2.) The Space Exploration Vehicle
Suggested By: HammerheadFistPunch
Why it's a marvel: Behold, the world's most advanced pickup truck. It's NASA's prototype for a future lunar rover called the Space Exploration Vehicle, or SEV for short.
For one thing it can drive on the moon for thousands of miles without any need for maintenance, but it's also a couple steps forward from the first Lunar Rover from the ‘70s. There are twelve wheels that spin 360 degree to allow for sideways "crabbing," a brace of scientific equipment, and a pressurized cabin in which astronauts can live for 14 days. It's as close to a space ship as a car has come.

Why it's a marvel: Some might argue that Curiosity is not a car. No one will ever sit in it and grab the controls. It largely drives itself, though it gets assistance from an entire space program. None of that stops it from being a wheeled machine that drives around, so it's a car.
There's certainly no doubt that it is the most advanced car we've ever built. It's a mobile lab, a robot scientist, a photographer, an off-road driver, and a Mars explorer all at once. It's even nuclear powered! What more do you want?
