The Zastava Yugo 45 was intended to be a serious car. Instead, it became a punchline. Milos Paripovic's Zugo concept, on the other hand, is a bit of a joke that instead was taken seriously enough to win fifth place in a European design competition. After updating the lines of the Yugo for the Zugo, Paripovic endowed it with features that probably would have been useful on the original.

The electric concept has a heated rear hatch so your relatives, when pushing it, have a warm place to put their hands. But the hatch also contains a pressure sensor so you can tell if any of those relatives aren't pulling pushing their weight.

Paripovic said such features, and others, "are put in contrast to everyday reality of Yugo owner." That's why the Zugo is open source and provides diagrams of all of its parts so owners can fabricate their own. It's also why the safest recommended place for the Zugo is "in the garage." Check it out in the attached image gallery. It might be the finest offspring of a Yugo 45, ever.
