Eight concept cars we want to see in the showroom

With the Frankfurt Motor Show having just ended, we got to thinking about those out-of-this-world “concept cars”
1 of 8
1. Jaguar C-X75: Jaguar’s project goals for this concept car is under 3 seconds acceleration from 0 to 60 mph. While we think that’s a long shot for Jaguar, the carbon fibre build impressed us enough to hope the car reaches production.

2. 2017 Ford GT: Ford has in no doubt stepped up its car game with the 2017 Ford GT. With a twin turbo-charged 3.5 litre Eco boost engine with over 600 horse power, it’s no wonder the once concept car is now on route to construction.

3. Mercedes-Benz Concept IAA: “Only the best for our customers” is Mercedes’ motto, and it sure delivered that this year at the Frankfurt Motor Show with its Intelligent Aerodynamics creation. With the push of a button, the IAA changes shape and increases in length by 390 millimetres.
4 of 8
4. Lamborghini Asterion LPI 910-4: There isn’t a Lamborghini that doesn’t leave onlookers in awe. The same goes for the brand’s newest plug-in hybrid. The best part? It accelerates from 0 to 62 mph in 3 seconds.
5 of 8
5. Maserati Alfieri Concept Car: as opposed to the newcomers on this list, the Alfieri was showcased at last year’s Frankfurt Motor Show – but it left us wanting more. As long as it looks like that, the 4.7 litre engine with 460 horsepower is good enough for us.

6. Porsche Mission E: Porsche’s new four-door electric supercar charges 80 percent in 15 minutes. It also has a solar-powered roof to help with the battery charging process. But that’s irrelevant, for us, it was love at first sight. On to production, we say.
7 of 8
7. Nissan Gripz: Nissan wanted to create a crossover car that was exciting as opposed to boring. It succeeded. The Gripz is anything but boring, just take a look at its up-side doors.
8 of 8
8. Bugatti Vision Gran Turismo: This car looks like something out of a play station game, because it is. Originally created for the game Gran Turismo, the carbon fibre concept is a race car to the core – which is why we’d like to see it have an “everyday” version. Because who doesn’t want to drive this everyday all day?
