For the past 50 years the OC International Auto Show has encapsulated viewers with its futuristic models as well as eccentric twists on old school styles. The OC Auto Show opens today (Oct. 2) and runs up and through Sunday (Oct. 5). Viewers can make the trip out to Anaheim, Calif. for the chance to test drive some of the world's most elusive cars. There are also conceptual models that won't be seen for some time, but nevertheless a chance to look at the future of automobiles is still a worthy endeavor.

"This year's auto show is about celebrating Southern California's longtime love affair with cars, as the Orange County International Auto Show celebrates 50 years of showing the vehicles of the future," said Orange County Automobile Dealers Association Executive Director John Sackrison. "From classic cars to all-new vehicles that have yet to hit dealer showrooms, this year's 50th anniversary OC International Auto Show is sure to excite everyone from extreme car aficionados to everyday drivers."

In celebration of the opening of the OC Auto Show, we've complied a list of the ten must see cars while visiting the showroom. Most are the latest and greatest 2015 models that will be tearing up the road with their latest innovations in auto-technology.

2015 BMW i8

The BMW i8 is a futuristic beast that never fails with "A turbocharged three-cylinder engine/electric motor duo with a combined 357 HP delivers M3-like acceleration, a 155-mph top speed, and Prius-like efficiency."

Dodge Charger Hellcat

When it comes to raw speed, the Dodge Charger Hellcat is pushing all boundaries. "This included a 0-60 time of 2.9 seconds, a 0-100 time of 7.2 seconds, an 8th mile time of 6.8 seconds and a quarter mile time of 10.7 seconds."

Lamborghini Huracan

There isn't much to say about this beauty, because as usual, Lamborghini likes to speak for itself.  

Chevrolet Camaro Z28

"The Z28 is back. With a powerful 505 horsepower V8 engine and sculpted aerodynamic body, the reinvented 2015 Camaro Z28 is the ultimate track car."

Cadillac ELR (Electric)

"With its forward-thinking technology and forward-leaning design, ELR is an original thought in a sea of conformity and our most advanced luxury coupe ever."

Jeep Renegade

Jeep has rededicated itself to its off-road roots with this instant classic. "Class-exclusive Jeep Active Drive Low 4x4 system with 20:1 crawl ratio and Selec-Terrain system featuring five settings including 'Rock Mode.'"

Honda CR-V

"The Honda Earth Dreams Technology DOHC i-VTEC system enhances the effect of VTEC® on the vehicle's 4-cylinder engine with Variable Timing Control, or VTC."

Toyota FCV (fuel cell)

Can someone say Hydrogen car? "The need for an alternative to fossil fuel is real. And in time, hydrogen will be our most sustainable option. Not only because hydrogen can be produced from renewables like solar and wind but also because the only emission from the tailpipe is water vapor."

Mercedes-Benz B-Class (Electric)

"Engineered not just as an alternative to gasoline, it's also a roomy, versatile alternative to EV compromises, letting you enjoy up to 85 miles of range in style and comfort."

Nissan Murano

"The futuristic exterior was designed to slip through the wind like a sports car, while retaining the interior dimensions of a premium SUV. It actually has the same 0.31 drag coefficient as the iconic Porsche 911 Turbo, yet still has more rear legroom than the Lexus RX350."
