2012 BMW M5 Concept

If you thought the other luxury car makers were going to take the CTS-V's claims of "fastest production sedan in the world" lying down, you haven't been paying attention. Soon up to challenge the Caddy's reign will be a slightly tweaked version of the 2012 BMW M5 Concept ($TBA). Powered by a high-revving V8 with M TwinPower Turbo Technology, the new M5 will crank out copious horsepower to its seven-speed, double-clutch transmission, with the Active M Differential sending power to each rear wheel independently based on traction, slip angle, and other considerations. Nürburgring tested, Uncrate approved.

  • Mini Paceman Concept

    Like the concept of the Mini but sick of the brand's staid, boxy looks? Feast your eyes on the Mini Paceman Concept ($TBA). This new "sports activity coupe" features more interior room than the traditional Cooper but maintains the two-doors + hatch DNA, and also offers a permanent all-wheel-drive system, a 1.6-litre four banger good for 211 hp, MacPherson spring struts on the front, a multi-link rear axle borrowed from parent BMW, and a striking design that will never be mistaken for boring.

  • Porsche 918 RSR

    Looking for a world-class racer in which you can live out your Gran Turismo fantasies? The Porsche 918 RSR ($TBA) is a smart choice. The 918 features a V8 engine good for 563 hp at a dizzying 10,300 rpm, and links it with two front wheel-mounted electric motors that are powered by a flywheel accumulator which charges during braking and can provide eight seconds of 767 hp motoring at the push of a button. Other features include a special racing paint job, a lightweight carbon fibre reinforced plastic shell, a six-speed constant-mesh transmission, and the inability to legally drive it any place other than the track.
