You won't ever be able to pick one up from your local dealer, but with any luck, at least some of the tech found in the Infiniti Q80 Inspiration will make it into production models. At the top of the list is the concept's hybrid powertrain, which pairs a 450hp 3.0L twin turbocharged V6 with a 100hp electric motor to deliver great fuel economy and extra power when you need it. There's also a 9-speed automatic gearbox, and an intelligent drive system that can switch between rear- and all-wheel drive as needed. Head-up displays for both the driver and passenger keep important info a glance away, suicide doors in the rear make for easy entry and exit, and a wide, long, curvy design provides plenty of sex appeal. Last but certainly not least, an autonomous drive system that employs cameras, lasers, and sensors keeps the car driving without your input, and is available at the push of a button, making rush hour traffic no more than a minor inconvenience.
It's not the fighting bull's first real hybrid — it's still just a concept after all — but if the finished product is anything like the Lamborghini Asterion LPI 910-4, sign us up. Sporting a surprisingly curvaceous body, this plug-in powerhouse features a mid-mounted, 5.2L V10 engine, that's paired with a combination of three electric motors and a hefty battery pack. The result is a maximum output of 910 hp, a 0-62 time of 3.0 seconds, a top speed of nearly 200 mph, and yet amazing fuel economy, reduced emissions, and the ability to drive up to 30 miles at speeds of up to 77 mph without burning any gas at all.
It looks like it jumped right from a science fiction film and onto the street, and is nothing short of exceptional. The Mike Vetter Extra Terrestrial Vehicle is a true, one-of-a-kind car, with scissor doors, gull-wing windows, a Chevy 2-liter supercharged motor, dual batteries, and an interior that is all leather, suede and aluminum. Up for sale for the first time, this exclusive futuristic ETV is sure grab attention wherever it goes.
