This is not a prank. Repeat. This is not a prank.

Land Rover have actually gone and debuted world-first invisible car technology - the Transparent Bonnet concept.

Cameras located in the car's grille capture data used to feed a Head-Up Display, effectively making the bonnet and engine bay "see-through."

With this technology, drivers get full visibility of what is underneath and in front of the car, as well as the angle and position of the front wheels. This means it'll be a helluva lot easier to climb a steep incline or manoeuvre in a confined space.

And, most importantly, it looks bloody cool.

The car will be unveiled in full at the New York Motor Show on April 16. To keep up to date with what's going on, follow Land Rover on Twitter.
