It’s always interesting to watch concept cars at auto shows. Everybody gets to see daring, appalling statements or fascinating ones that may just make it to the factory. The best models are energy for dreams of what may come in next few years. This year proved to be very special one. Here’s out list of most favorite concept cars.
Maserati needs to change something after GranTurismo model that everybody loved so much, and the Alfieri is a great replacement. Not to mention that Maserati celebrates 100th anniversary this year, and a bold declaration is expected. Alfieri Concept is a 2+2 and it’s more sporting focused due to its shorter wheelbase and in general lesser size compared to the GranTurismo.
Is always great when two worlds gets together, like this time when students at the Istituto Europeo di Design in Turin in collaboration with Hyundai’s European design center presents their beautiful model. The mid-engine petite sports car is designed to be motorized by a little but strong 1.6-liter 4-cylinder with 266 hp going to the back wheels. It’s got expel abundantly and some attractive lovable exhaust pipes. Sure there is plenty things to improve, but the model is very attractive as it is and we hope this car comes to life in some form.
Infiniti Q50 Eau Rouge
We already know a thing or two about Infiniti’s Q50 Eau Rouge but the new thing is very strong engine. It comes with the mega-breathing twin-turbo 3.8-liter V6. So we can say that this car is going to be a very powerful one. It’s tuned at 560hp to all four wheels.
Italdesign Giugiaro Clipper MPV
Very well known Italdesign Giugiaro used Volkswagen MQB platform to produce this six-passenger, three-row, electric car. There’s two 110-kilowatt electric motors supply an all-wheel-drive-like setup. Its array is an imposing 335 miles before is powered out, meaning that this car is the better version of Tesla S.
Volvo Concept Estate
Volvo’s been shaking things a bit with one immense model following another, and this model is last link in trilogy that started with the Concept Coupe. This model comes with a two doors, borrowing some elements from the classic P1800. Not going for the retro style, but for elegant and sporty. Interior comes in white leather with beautiful tweed seatback. We are hoping that this is the final model, and that Volvo produces this car as next generation XC90, because that model anxiously needs a redesign.
Honda Civic Type-R
Honda has revealed the Civic Type R Concept model in Geneva this year which points to the styling course for the external design of the highly-anticipated manufacture new Type R that will debut in Europe during 2015. Explained by the design team as a ‘road racing car’ moderately than a elevated performance version of a road car, the new Type R looks set to sign a new era for the brand - with the most tremendous Civic Type R yet. The smooth and slick profile reflects a car designed for show whilst keeps the look of a road car and the characteristic of Type R.
Mazda in no way did well with little cars, and maybe the model of Mazda is bright turnaround for that company. Hazumi Concept is very powerful with 1.5-liter Skyactiv-D diesel engine, and the aggressive look gives certain statement.
