Overview: What’s most remarkable about the Audi Elite concept isn’t its dramatic styling, its race-car like single-seat layout, or even its radical “artificial photosynthesis process” which somehow powers it? Continue reading →

Overview: The Alfa Romeo 12C GTS is a sports car concept which is design to capture the classic appearance of historic Alfas, and wrap it up in a modern package. Unlike his previous design the 12C GTS has no obvious model on which it is based. And as such there are no drivetrain details or engineering specifications of any kind. Read Full Concept Overview!

Year: 2031-2040

Overview: Powered by a 4.5 litre naturally aspirated V8 engine backed up by an electric motor of unspecified size. The car has also been envisaged with a 45/55 front/rear weight distribution which Infiniti say helps the car drift better. The car has been extensively tested on the virtual track by engineers at the company to help refine the dynamic characteristics.

The Infiniti Concept Vision Gran Turismo also features advanced aerodynamics in the form of under-floor airflow control, front splitters and a rear diffuser, and a uniquely shaped rear spoiler.

Year:  2021-2030

Overview: The proposed drivetrain consists of a 300 horsepower, turbocharged 4-cylinder engine driving the rear wheels through a manual transmission. The hood features a transparent Plexiglas window which shows off the powerplant underneath.

The interior of the Dodge Demon Hellhound concept features a staggered seating layout. The driver’s seat is positioned slightly ahead of the passenger seat, giving a better field-of-vision and a more race car-like feel. A purpose-built helmet storage area replaces the conventional glovebox.

Ford GT-V Concept

Overview: In profile and from the rear the GT-V concept is a handsome looking car. But there’s a bit too much going on at the front – which makes the headlights seem totally lost in a sea of grilles and air intakes. In addition the windscreen looks to be near-vertical – which would have dire consequences for the car’s aerodynamics. So in terms of looks the Ford GT-V concept is a mix of win and fail.

As it’s an independently-designed concept which isn’t destined for production, the engineering and drivetrain underpinning the car is merely a series of words and numbers plucked from the air – but they help to get a feel for the car’s purpose. For the GT-V concept Ciprian has chosen a clever hybrid drivetrain which would offer a three-fold benefit. By combining a supercharged V8 with a 162 horsepower electric motor, the GT-V concept would offer exceptional performance  – while also reducing fuel consumption. When required the electric motor could provide an extra boost of power thanks to a ‘push-to-pass’ button. At lower speeds or for shorter journeys, the electric motor could be used on its own for zero-emission motoring.

To further reduce fuel usage, the Ford GT-V concept would be fitted with an advanced stop-start system which would cut the engine when the vehicle is stationary.

Lightweight composite materials would be used throughout the car to keep weight to a minimum.
