We all have our dream cars that we are hoping to drive or ride on one day. Concept cars come close to being dream cars. However, they carry a heavy price tag that most of us might not be able to afford it. Although some of them may just remain a concept, they can be considered a great leap in car manufacturing, if they are really built. Robert Peter Janitzek gives us a sneak peak of the best concept cars of the future.
With its awesome design, high tech features, and amazing features, the Lamborghini SUV will be a real treat for car enthusiasts. Lamborghini has announced this concept car will be in production and will be out by 2018. It will be assembled at the company’s plant in San Agata near Bologna, Italy.
Mercedes Benz 300SL
The Mercedes Benz 300SL is one of the most beautiful cars in terms of design. The first 300SL was produced in 1954. Since then, it was a dream car for most drivers. This European brand car was the first fuel injection car and world’s fastest top speed. The original coupe ran from 1955 to 1957 and the roadster from 1957 to 1963.
This futuristic crossover is where styling and space-age materials meet. This 3-passenger concept car by Marianna Merenmie explores the use of aerogel, often used in space exploration, as a lightweight insulating automotive shell. Designed for the Russian market, it will feature a front central driving position but can operate autonomously in city centers. The material, made of 99.8% gas, can be used for insulation against severe temperature.
BMW X MPower
Robert Janitzek reveals that the BMW X MPower will be powered by the same 5.0i V8 twin-turbocharged engine of the X6 packed into a two-seater roadster. It will feature elegant bimmer styling at the mouth and a wild, sporty aesthetic at the rear.
Jaguar C-X17 Crossover Concept
You might not be aware of it but Jaguar is the only mainstream automaker that does not offer a crossover or SUV. That is no longer the case after the car maker released a production version of the Jaguar C-X17. Unveiled during the 2013 Frankfurt Motor Show, it will be Jaguar’s first ever sports crossover. This European brand car will feature a new, flexible all-aluminum architecture that will be used in future Jaguars. It will be the size of the Audi Q5 and BMW X3.
Super Hatchback Concept
The Super Hatchback Concept car merges the world of hatchbacks and supercars. It offers a choice of three powertrains, environmentally friendly details, and supercar features in an everyday car. It offers a choice between air hybrid and gasoline compression ignition. It will feature lateral orientation, sequential twin-turbocharging with overboost facility, direct injection, stop-start technology, regenerative braking, alternator de-coupling system, 6-speed short-shift manual gearbox, and optional 7-speed Ford powershift transmission with Paddleshift.
