This Qoros Model K-EV Concept is a good reminder of why concept cars are awesome. They look absolutely insane and their performance figures are as well. How much of that actually makes it to production is anyone’s guess, but the fact remains that they are an exercise in imagination and creativity. We need more of that.
Renault wanted to demonstrate their long-term commitment to staying in Formula One with a cool concept of what they envision for the series’ future. Their Renault RS 2027 Vision promises to be safer, faster, friendlier for the environment and more fun to watch. It’s a cool spaceship with wheels. We like where they’re…
Well, it was bound to happen at some point: Volkswagen’s third addition to its electric concept car family is the I.D. Crozz. Because it’s a crozz-over! Haaaa.
Mercedes made a pretty bold stylistic pronouncement at the Shanghai Auto Show, where it presented a new concept car: a sleek, compact sedan it calls, imaginatively, ‘Concept A Sedan.’ The car is nicely proportioned and attractive, but to Diamler AG Chief Design Officer Gorden Wagener it seems to represent a larger…
Mysterious Lynk & Co is the unfathomable car share brand that sits between Volvo and its Chinese owner Geely, with Volvo architecture coming from one side and an incomprehensible business plan on the other.
The Bentley Hunaudières concept of 1999 was something of a proto-Veyron, an almost more exact preview of what the production Bugatti would look like than Bugatti’s own concepts up until that time. But there’s something missing in Bentley’s photos of the car itself.
It’s the Easter Jeep Safari, the time of year when Jeep teases the world with unattainable concept vehicles that us ordinary humans will never be able to attain. But this year is different. Jeep did what we all would do and bought a ‘90s ZJ Grand Cherokee off of Craigslist.
No car company has been burned worse by the implosion of diesel technology than Volkswagen, and now it looks like the company is working the hardest to divest itself from the maybe-gonna-get-banned fuel.
The list of things I’m a sucker for is vast and, largely, without value. Somewhere in the middle of that list are entries for unexpected sliding doors and Renault LeCars. Incredibly, there’s a real-world intersection of these two things, and it’s known as the Renault Supercinq Van by Heuliez.
This is the Volkswagen Sedric Concept. The name is a combination of the words “self-driving car” and not a weird reference to a Nissan Cedric. It’s also the “first Concept Car of the Volkswagen Group” which confuses me, since VW has had plenty of concept cars. What confuses me less is the space-cyber-caterpillar look…
As car companies log more and more miles on self-driving prototypes, we’re quickly finding out that there’s not much middle ground between humans driving cars and robots driving cars.
The current Lamborghini Huracán is a lovely and restrained design, about as understated as a 200 mph supercar can be. But a 200 mph supercar shouldn’t be restrained, which is why I’m excited to see the mad scoops and wings of Italdesign’s new Lamborghini-based (and oddly unnamed) custom car.
So, apparently there’s a car show going on in Canada this week. By now, you’re all aware that it’s the place where you’ll find the most stunning new cars in North America, not crossovers and robots. It’s also the place where Aston Martin promised us the future of cars won’t suck with their insane AM-RB 001 hypercar.…
You may have been looking for me. I am not there. I am away, here, secluded at my Space House living on the Ghia Planet.
The original Dodge Viper was hailed as a concept car for the road, a 1960s throwback with 1990s performance. But there was at least one little detail that didn’t transfer from concept to production.
Most of us don’t associate Mercedes-Benz with tiny city cars, at least not in America, and not before a moment of reflection. Oh yeah, we think, Mercedes makes the Smart car. I always forget that. That skill with tiny-car packaging didn’t come from nowhere—Mercedes has been playing with tiny city cars for a long time.…
General Motors was certain the V8 engine would go the way of the dodo in 1990, according to Hot Rod. So, we almost got a mid-engine Corvette decades ago, only this version also would have had another engine in the front. Best of all, the test mule for this wacky twin-engine Corvette was a humble 1985 Citation X-11.
