10 Concept Cars That Will Change Driving ForeverAutomotive, Design, Lists, Travel
Everyone drives at some point in their life. Most people do it almost every single day on their way back and forth to work. Cars, however, are changing the way transport is happening, though. In fact, very recently a self-driving car was introduced to the world, allowing you to sit back and enjoy the ride, albeit at just 25 miles-per-hour. There are many, many vehicle manufacturers out there working on new concept vehicles, though. Here are ten of the coolest that will change the way we drive forever.
Peugeot Flux Concept
As the winner of the 2007 Peugeot International Design Competition, the Peugeot Flux is an impressive sports car designed to head off-road and take on almost anything. The coolest feature? The car is being powered by a hydrogen-fueled engine.
The Nike ONE has a maximum speed of 230 miles-per-hour. The concept car is completely hypothetical at the moment, and developed by the sports wear company. It almost resembles a moon buggy.
Jaguar Mark XXI Concept
The Jaguar Mark XXI Concept is an absolutely ugly vehicle, but it is very futuristic, too. The concept has photovoltaic panels, allowing the vehicle to recharge its on-board batteries while driving. The car, which resembles a leaf, is comfortable and luxurious.
Audi Makaon Speed Sailor
The Audi Makaon Speed Sailor is thought to be released in 2040, and will be a lightweight two-seater that will be powered by wind energy. The seating within can be repositioned to balance the car when the wind is too strong.
Dolphin Concept Car
The Dolphin Concept Car was the third winner of the Michelin Design Challenge 2013. The Dolphin is a sports car created by three young Chinese engineers, and is made from transparent glass and carbon fiber, making it quite light for a car.
Created back in 2010, the Mercedes-Benz Biome is a completely electric concept that was built in a laboratory instead of on the factory line. With speeds upwards of 187 miles-per-hour, the Biome is going to be one-of-a-kind.
Designed by Alexey Bykov, the Audi Quattroflex is quite futuristic, appearing similar to a moon buggy. With no roof and expandable seating, the entire vehicle can be controlled via a joystick instead of a steering wheel.
Lamborghini has always been known for producing high-end sports cars, so it makes sense they would have a concept vehicle in production. The Lamborghini Madura, which is said to become available in 2016, should carry a price tag of around 5 million dollars.
The Renault DeZir, first shown off in 2010 at the Paris Motor Show, is an electronic two-seat vehicle designed by Renault. With butterfly doors on each side, the car can make it up to 112 miles-per-hour.
Cadillac World Thorium Fuel
Nicknamed the Cadillax WTF, the Cadillac World Thorium Fuel was designed by Lorus Kulesus. This car, which appears alien in nature, is powered by thorium, which acts a bit like nuclear fuel.
