Concept cars you wish existed or will come to life soon!


#162

The R8 was based on the Le Mans Quattro concept, not that one.


#163

But if I remember correctly the R8 got the V10 inspired by this:


#164

Not really. Audi just showed three concepts in 2003 - Pikes Peak quattro at the North American International Auto Show, Nuvolari quattro at the Geneva Motor Show and Le Mans quattro at the Frankfurt Motor Show. The R8 is directly related to the Le Mans.


And here’s the Pikes Peak to complete the whole trio.


#165

A concept 5-door Isuzu VehiCROSS was made back in the day.

I always loved the VehiCROSS, although I can see why the 5-door never made into production.


#166

How Many of my dollars are required?

A concept based on a concept, the Deora 2 Is pretty iconic, and came to life as a functional model at SEMA 2007, a fully fiberglass body powered by a rear mounted Northstar. So much win.


#167

They actually made a real version? My only complaint is that it doesn’t have the Wave Rippers livery.


#168

This isn’t strictly in the subject but

I really wish someone or iveco themselves applied the new iveco daily styling onto a regular car, because i would buy it in a flash


#169

Yeah, I could see that working for something like a sub-compact or one of those cube-cars. Actually wouldn’t be that bad. I’ll admit, the styling’s really good on that.


#170

That would pass for a low-end economy car well indeed, considering they look like this now



These horrible grilles… what is Honda thinking??


#171

its to protect from bird impacts in Australia


Two a concept drawing of the BF Falcon Cobra that Ford was really considering at one stage and the ford interceptor mad max ediions



#172

That Falcon looks more like a modern day '71 Mustang, and the hood scoops look like the scoops on the Mach 1 :slight_smile:


#173

Ah my friend google ford falcon xa gt or a xc cobra coupe.


#174

Yeah? The Mach 1 was out earlier, the Falcon’s are obviously quite similar. Stuff like that happens with the same manufacturer.


#175

Same body different front guards and front panels the style was from 70 to 78 with the xa, xb and xc falcon. We just got much cooler clevelands than the US. And a falcon coupe is expensive these days looking at least $50000 au for a half decent one


#176

Well any car that’s been in popular movies tend to get expensive.


#177

Can we just take a break to appreciate the pure madness of Sbarro?

This is the Sbarro Ionos. Engine is to Lancia Kappa I5s welded together, mated with the gearbox of the Carrera 4 (yeah, Porsche). Supposedly makes 400hp.

And this is a car from 1989!


In fact, the man of Sbarro invented the centreless wheel himself. Quite a clever idea, in fact. It had a midmounted Jaguar V12 with individual exhaust pipes for each cylinder.

Here’s a more modern study by the design college he started.


Powered by an Audi 1.8T. What utter freaks.

When the Swiss go mad, it’s like nothing else.


#178

The Sbarro Monster was always my favorite


Look at that ground clearance…


#179

Just imagine if they had put portal axels on it.:smiling_imp:


#180

Sbarro is my favorite kind of madness.


#181

Following up with a double post, here’s something actually genuinely cool from Renault!


Wowza!
