Concept Cars

Your car is an extension of your personality. At least, it should be. Yet, it seems like we’re all driving the exact same cars. There are millions of Ford Fiestas on the road. And the motorways are packed full of carbon copy saloon cars. BMWs, Audis, and Mercedes. They’re all the same. It’s time to inject some personality into your vehicle. Make it yours. A quick disclaimer before you do. Some of the ideas on this list will make it tricky to sell in the future.

Custom paint job – When you buy a new car, you’re typically offered the same dull paint choices. The simple whites, blues, and blacks are the most common colours. But what about something a little more personal? How about a two-tone finish or a mix of your favourite colours? Custom car garages like Auto Art can help turn your boring paint job into something more personal. Whether it’s a simple go-faster stripe along the side or full custom artwork, it will transform the car.

Custom license plate – We love a good custom license plate. They make excellent gifts and presents for the petrol-head in your life. Unfortunately, they’re not always cheap to come by. It’s also tricky to find the perfect lettering and numbering, as they aren’t made to order. But, when you do find the perfect license plate, it makes your car that little bit more special.

Seat covers or upholstery – If the exterior of your car is all about expressing your personality, the interior is about comfort. You want to sit behind the wheel and feel comfortable and stylish. One of the best personalised upgrades you can do is fitting leather upholstery. It instantly feels more stylish and comfortable. You can finish it with a specific trim colour, and make it your own. If you’re running low on cash, you can buy simple seat covers that match your style and personality.
Stereo system – Most sensible car buyers advise against upgrading to a big stereo. It could make it more difficult to sell your car in the future, and it might lose value. On the other hand, you get phenomenal, crystal clear sound while you’re driving. If you’re anything like us, you’ll love turning the stereo up loud and going on a road trip. For that level of joy and excitement, any price is worth it.

Fun technology extras – The essence of driving is all about fun. So forget practicality and sensible choices for a second. What would you love to do in your car? We recently came across a car-lover who had installed a small mini-fridge in the front console. Now, he and his family had quick access to cold drinks on a long journey. Genius! Others have installed TVs in the back seats for their kids. It’s these fun technology extras that turn a practical car into a fun place to be.

Forget those same old cars, and find new ways to put your own stamp on your motor. What would you do to your car?

A cool custom built car motorbike here that’s ideal for busy city traffic. It’s certainly more car than bike and has great looks but not sure on the specification at this stage. We will try and find out more about this and update when we have more information.

Lamborghini reportedly will unveil a new ultra-luxury utility vehicle, to be called MLC, at the 2012 Beijing Auto Show in April. A three-door SUV concept will be revealed in Beijing that shares its underpinnings with the Audi Q7 and Porsche Cayenne, as well as a new Bentley SUV that’s due in 2014.

The publication said the Lambo SUV is “almost certainly bound for production in 2015,” with a projected price of around $200,000.Italy’s Quattroroute published a sketch of what it said was the new Lamborghini SUV. The SUV in the sketch below does look really cool!

If approved for production, the Lambo SUV would likely be built on VW’s modular MLB architecture, which will underpin the next-generation Cayenne, Q7 and Touareg, as well as the new Bentley SUV.

Lamborghini last offered an SUV, the boxy, quasi-military LM002, in extremely limited numbers from 1986-’93. Resembling a four-door pickup and dubbed the “Rambo Lambo,” the extreme off-roader featured aluminum body panels on a tubular-steel frame and was powered by a massive 7.2-liter V12 from the Countach.

Showcasing the cool Range Rover Evoque convertible, one of the most intriguing cool cars from the 2012 Geneva Motorshow. This is the world’s first soft-top Range Rover Evoque. And if you think such a concept sounds bizarre, wait until you see the pictures and watch the video below. This open-top crossover SUV really works!

Adding a fold-flat soft-top to the three-door Range Rover Evoque has created an uncommonly elegant machine. The clean lines and sit-up stance give a really premium open-top experience: it’s as if it was designed to take a soft-top roof from the very start.

What’s the cost?

Land Rover says this is a concept that’s being shown here to test the mood for such a model. Judging by the reaction so far, production is virtually guaranteed and expect it on sale within 2 years at starting price of around £35,000.

As a fan of all things cool, especially cars and bikes, this digital art competition from Nissan is right up our street. Called Infiniti, it’s Nissan’s luxury and performance car part to their business. The digital art competition is in conjunction with design magazine designboom. The competition was for entrants to design a sculpture, projection or installation. 6 of the best designs (see below) will show off their designs in Infiniti showrooms around the country. The Infiniti Centre Stockport in Manchester, UK is the latest of these showrooms and currently in the middle of a week long promotion inviting people to come and check out the art works as well as the cars.

With cool art and high performance cars in one place – there’s something for everyone there! The art works include the work of Shinji Nukumi of Japan, entitled ‘Infiniti Passion’ – a design which expresses the potential of Infiniti cars from the inside rather than from the outside.

 Crystalline DNA
Making his debut in the sphere of automotive-based art, Brano Hlavac from Slovakia has created a series of four visuals which look at the manufacturing and design of Infiniti’s models utilising the elements of crystal, the power of shape and DNA. In his designs, he highlights the importance of creativity and the automaker making their own mark, putting to one side the act of selling cars.

Value Added
The curvaceous sculpture by Slovak designers Juraj Rattaj and Jan Ziska explores the idea of creating a parking space which projects the correct image of a luxury car such as an Infiniti, whilst adding value as a piece of art in a public place rather than merely being confined to the function of hosting a vehicle.

Highway of Light
This is a digital animation conceived by Bob Trempe and Roman Torres of the USA to reflect the powerful and distinct “character lines” used in the design of every Infiniti model. The digital animation communicates the lines of Infiniti brand by combining a silhouette of a car and the moving light streaks of fast moving vehicles on a highway.

Infiniti Passion
The brainchild of Japanese artist Nukumi Shinji and NBBR, “Infiniti Passion” is composed of a series of projections on to an Infiniti model which focuses on the ‘inner’ dimension of the car in order to be able to see the potential of the marque.

The piece designed by Sanchit Sawaria and Palash Singh looks at the importance of performance and a car which creates an experience for the user beyond driving. The art does not reveal the mechanics which made the visual possible, but is the result of the discreet presence of technology such as streaks of light generated by fast moving cars.

Synthesised by Nature
Inspired by light, nature, and geometry, the artwork created by Englishman Jackson Tayler, combines three half cubes and projections to create the journey of a streak of light through an autonomous and sophisticated world. The free-flowing movements of the beam, which guide the viewer through the artwork, incorporate elements of ballet, and reflect the power of an infiniti’s engine and the elegance of the cars’ curves.

This cool concept car called the ‘Hussar Dakar’ could be a glimpse into the future of high-speed, off-road rally racing and is a creation of designer Klaud Wasiak.

The Hussar Dakar is inspired by Polish winged cavalry uniforms of the 18th century, giving this vehicle a dramatic rear wing structure that has both aesthetic and functional qualities. Inside, the driver is seated at a central position, with a lower, tiered section with two seats for a navigator and engineer.

That engineer maintains and controls the non-driven parts of the vehicle, including those wings which provide aerodynamic boosts as well as kinetic energy generation from movement.

Showcasing the all new 2010 Astra car with pictures and videos. The Astra 2010 is the sixth generation Astra and has been impressing journalists and back-seat critics alike. With an emphasis on design, the car boasts the most stylish features as well as the most practical. Vauxhall’s interior team have also developed storage solutions for the 20 most popular items that drivers keep in the side door pockets of their cars. Comfort is also a priority, the seats offer industry-leading levels of adjustment. The newest Astra is big on design but small on emissions with a smaller 1.4 litre engine than previous models producing 10% less CO2 emissions.

Being a fan of cool cars and bikes, you’ll understand how the Proxima concept bike car excited me. I love the thrill of riding a motorbike but when the weather is bad, I long for the comfort of a car. This Proxima car/bike hybrid concept looks to be the answer!

With 2 tandem seats providing an optimum riding position for both the driver and the passenger, the Proxima passes the thrill of its stunning and aggressive aerodynamics fully through its steely frame and chrome alloys.

The Proxima is a stunning vehicle that looks like a hotrod at the front and a motorcycle at the rear. The cabin has 2 tandem seats for a motorcycle-like seating arrangement but instead of being exposed to the elements, are tucked inside a fully-enclosed cabin. Apart from providing comfortable, all-weather riding, it should also improve aerodynamics considerably.

This cool bike merges freely with nuancical car details like the discreet door and help it ideally change from a car to a bike. With the front wheels positioned considerably apart and the rear wheels bunched together, the Proxima also presents an interesting maneuverability that is sure to thrill both car and
bike lovers alike.

The wheel arrangement might be seen to offer less maneuverability than a traditional motorcycle, but at the same time could present a whole new level of excitement and capabilities.
