While very little is known yet about the 2015 BMW M4 Coupe Concept ($TBA) early shots have leaked, and it looks gorgeous (we'll forgive them for the awful metallic yellow color this time). They're expected to ditch the V8 in favor of an inline-six similar to the beloved engine found in the E46 M3s, which drivers raved about for its incomparable smoothness. Early estimates put this turbocharged engine's output at somewhere around 450 horsepower. Regardless, this looks like an exciting direction for the 4-series' sportier sibling.
Plenty of cars — even Lamborghinis — draw inspiration from aviation, but few take the concept as far as this. Created to celebrate Lambo's 50th anniversary, the Lamborghini Egoista Concept ($TBA) takes many of its styling cues from the Apache helicopter. Named after the Italian word for "selfish", this unique concept is centered around a single-person, carbon fiber and aluminum cockpit that's actually removable, and is designed around the driver, with a racing seat, four-point restraints, and a heads-up display. LED clearance lights replace traditional headlights, hidden xenon headlamps provide distance lighting, and flaps on the bodywork help increase stability and airflow to the 600hp, 5.2L V10 engine. If that wasn't enough, the body and wheels are made from anti-radar material, giving us just one more reason to believe that this beast won't be going into production any time soon.
And here you thought your hatchback was fast. The Volkswagen Design Vision GTI Concept ($TBA) is a study in compact speed with looks to match. Wider and lower than a stock Golf, it's powered by a twin-turbo 3.0L V6 pumping out 503 hp — the regular GTI offers just 200 — that's mated to a dual-clutch DSG transmisison and an all-wheel drive system. The result? A 0-62 time of just 3.9 seconds and a top speed of 186 mph. The exterior has also gotten a large makeover, with aggressive fins, a popped-out C-pillar, and 20-inch rims. We're pretty sure it won't be coming to a dealership anytime soon, but if you want a clue as yo the design direct of the next-gen GTI, this as close as you're going to get.
