The Shanghai Motor Show has seen many new and amazing designs this year - both as production cars and all-out concepts.

We've chosen our top five that not only look fantastic, but are also fun and futuristic in their form.

1. Renault R.S. 2027

Renault's R.S. 2027 concept (above) is a snapshot of how Formula 1 might look in the future.

An aerodynamic body with a cockpit made of polycarbonate, an ultra-resistant material and advanced technology such as an all-wheel-drive system and four-wheel steering have all been used to make this a super-quick F1 car.

2. Audi E-Tron Sportback concept

Audi E-Tron Sportback concept

A coupe-like, fully electric SUV with sporting credentials is the best way to sum up the Audi E-Tron Sportback concept.

The design is sleek and sophisticated, and the whole car is bursting with clever technology, including electric quattro all-wheel drive, a range of 310 miles on one charge and all-round LED lighting.

3. MG E-Motion

MG E-Motion

The MG E-Motion EV concept is a hugely different design for the now Chinese-based carmaker.

Harking back to the classic MGB and MG midget sports cars, the E-Motion has distinctive styling, especially with its gullwing doors that reveal a four-seat cockpit.

4. Lynk & Co 03 concept

Lynk and Co 03 concept

If you want something different, the new 03 concept from Chinese manufacturer Lynk & Co could be the answer.

Unlike some concepts at the show, this looks like a car that's ready to be on your driveway very soon. This is thanks to it being a prototype that sits on Volvo underpinnings, since parent firm Geely owns the Swedish manufacturer as well. But the main reason the Lynk & Co 03 deserves a place on our list, is the impressive lifetime warranty that comes with the car, showing the company's supreme confidence in its product.

5. Citroen C3 Aircross

Citroen C3 Aircross

Citroen's C3 is proving a big hit with customers at the moment, so an SUV version has been created that looks extremely funky.

The quirky styling is similar to that of the Cactus, using Airbump technology along the bottom of the doors - handy for those tight multi-storey car parks, or if you're hit by a shopping trolley.
