“It’s no secret that the future belongs to self-aware, autonomous vehicles,” Rolls-Royce writes. So forget your frets about the next 100 years, the 103EX has a plan for us. And also the closest thing to “square wheels” of any car ever.
If a 4 Wheel Parts catalog spilled all over a Chevy Colorado it’d be this Thai Colorado Xtreme concept. It’s a caricature on wheels and it’s perfect. Now this is a Z71 worthy of an “Off-Road” sticker.
Practical can be sexy! That’s kind of the Jeep Renegade’s whole mantra. Most of this year’s Easter Jeep Safari concepts are unusably extreme, but the little Commander actually looks pretty reasonable.
Rimac Automobili, an upstart Croatian supercar and battery engineering firm, just took the wraps off of two 1000-plus horsepower all-wheel drive electric vehicles. They’re absolutely gorgeous, and they each come with four motors and four gearboxes—one at each corner.
Nissan CEO Carlos Ghosn has announced that his company will turn the Kicks concept they trotted out at the 2014 São Paulo Motor Show into an actual car. Looks right between a Juke and a Murano with a little dash of “lifted Maxima.”
Last night, electric car startup Faraday Future served up the wild FFZERO1 concept as “the most extreme iteration of what it can build” with a barrage of buzzwords that left most people wondering what the hell was actually going on. But according to two company officials who spoke to Jalopnik, there is a real car out…
“Acura has lost its way.” That’s become one of car enthusiasts’ favorite refrains. People say the brand’s “bland now” but basically what it comes down to is this: we all hate the beaks they adopted in the 2000s. Now it looks like the company might finally be ready to try something else.
The designers at McLaren Applied Technologies put together a bold vision of the future outside of any current series regulations to show what could be done if Formula One would just let them. The MP4-X concept sounds as if it’s straight out of science fiction, and we’d love to see some of its ideas become reality.
The Zarooq SandRacer kind of looks like a Local Motors Rally Fighter made of Legos. Both cars are conceptually similar; hand-made off-road desert coupes. But the Dubai-based crew is promising something even sweeter; a spec racing series.
About a decade after the introduction of the original Honda Ridgeline, we’re going to get a second generation of the trucklet. The face, hood, roof, bed, and profile of this Honda Baja racer are basically what’s going to be on the production version, so take it all in.
The Chevy Silverado “Bone Collector” sounds intense but actually seems remarkably practical. I dig what a few tubes of steel does for the look and I wish GM would offer this bed drawer system as a factory option, like, yesterday.
In 1967 the president of Pontiac was shown this LeMans Concept Sport Truck; a 350 V8-powered El Camino with the interior and front end of a Pontiac LeMans. He didn’t like it enough to build it, but at least somebody preserved it.
Yamaha has an extremely diverse portfolio of products for sale. You probably know they make motorcycles but they also do pressure washers, guitars, generators, water pumps and pianos, which actually makes sense as every last one of those things is a musical instrument. This month they’ll show us their idea of a sports…
You want a small, efficient, inexpensive truck in America? That’s funny, because it looks like the Malaysians wish they could have our big boorish sand-jumping monsters. Why not mash these ideas together?
The BMW G310 Stunt concept just made its debut at Brazil’s Sao Paulo Motorcycle show, dripping with crazy colors and hooligan farkle. That bling probably won’t see production, but the 310cc engine and frame style just might be the base for an inexpensive BMW bike line.
Performance tricycles are a strange segment. The Can-Am Spyder proved halfway decent to ride but embarrassing to be seen on. The Polaris Slingshot is polarizing, though we love it around these parts. Now Honda presents the Neowing concept; which of course they say does it all without compromise. What do you think?
The Freightliner “Inspiration Truck” will be the first autonomous commercial truck to drive on American roads. Nevada Governor Brian Sandoval and Daimler Chairman Wolfgang Bernhard just bolted on its Autonomous Vehicle license plate to prove it’s the real deal, and it’s already been spotted in action.
