Shock Bumper

Isolate and mount bumpers on shocks to absorb crash impact.

Basically, I just said it. Design a car bumper so that it can move somewhat independent of the rest of the car, that is, so that it can be pushed back into the car somewhat without deforming the car. You would have two shocks mounted between the bumper and the frame to absorb small impacts completely, and at least lessen the large impacts.

       Also baked on the little antique cars at amusement parks that always say "No Bumping" in four different places on each car.

       Beemers from the 80s actually had these, but people thought they were fuguly so they switched to modern plastic bumpers instead
