Some concepts are production ready. Others, like the Renault Trezor Concept, are not. Unapologetically impractical, this low-slung GT has a single-piece clamshell roof that opens upwards to provide access to the interior. Speaking of which, it has a red wood dashboard, lounge-like seats, three screens, and a Formula 1-inspired rectangular steering wheel that puts you in control of the 350 hp electric motor, capable of moving the car from 0-62 mph in under four seconds. Outside, there's red glazing, C-shaped lights, carbon bodywork with contrasting finishes, and red fiber optic lighting in the rear.
You won't see it at your local dealership anytime soon, but some of the tech being tested in the Chevrolet Colorado ZH2 might just make it into your ride someday. GM worked with the U.S. Army Tank Automotive Research, Development and Engineering Center to develop the off-road, fuel cell-powered vehicle in under a year. The truck sits on a stretched midsize pickup chassis, stands over 6½ feet tall, is more than seven feet wide, and rides on 37-inch tires capable of tackling any terrain. The fuel cell allows it to be almost silent, reducing both the acoustic and thermal signatures and making it ideal for stealth operations, the Exportable Power Take-Off unit lets it power equipment away from the vehicle, and the water by-product can come in handy in dry conditions.
Designed as a low-cost mobility solution for the developing world, the Ox All Terrain Vehicle is far from a standard SUV. For starters, it's the first vehicle ever designed to be flat-packed (like Ikea furniture) and assembled on-site. Its front wheels are powered by a 4-cylinder diesel engine from Ford that puts out 100hp and is easily maintained and repaired. Its inner cab holds up to the three people, while the cargo area can carry over two tons, seat 13 people, or carry eight 44-gallon drums. It has fully independent suspension on all four wheels, insanely large approach, departure, and traverse angles, high ground clearance, and a tailgate that can detach from the truck to serve as a loading ramp, making it ideal for transporting people and goods in locations where roads are poor or non-existent. No word yet on price, but you can bet it'll be popular in far more places than its creators expect.
30 years stored in an underground garage. Only four owners. Believed to be the only example delivered to Belgium. This 1955 Porsche 356 'Pre-A' 1600 Speedster has a great story to go along with its exceptional looks. One of very few "Pre-A" Speedsters to be equipped with the 1,600 cc engine, it has managed to keep its original engine and body panels throughout its 60+ years. It was recently restored after more than three decades in storage and is now in Concours-winning condition, arriving with a Porsche Certificate of Authenticity, its first registration, and a number of newspaper clippings covering its late '50s racing history.
Compact body. Big performance. The Audi RS 3 Sedan packs the world's most powerful five-cylinder engine under its bonnet, with the 2.5L unit producing 400hp. Paired with a seven-speed S-tronic transmission and quattro all-wheel drive, it moves from 0-62 in 4.1 seconds on its way to a top speed of 174 mph. The interior is outfitted in black leather, with optional sport seats, and has all the technology features you'd expect.
Not satisfied with serious speed on pavement, the Dodge Ram Rebel TRX Concept Truck leverages its powerful engine to send you off-roading at over 100 mph. It's powered by a supercharged 6.2L HEMI V-8 producing 575 hp, mated to a TorqueFlite eight-speed automatic transmission and an intelligent 4x4 Performance Control System. To handle all that speed, it has custom-built upper and lower A-arms up front and a five-link suspension system in the rear that gives a 40% increase in suspension travel, 37-inch tires, and beadlock wheels give you the ability to handle obstacles with ease.
