BMW Vision Next 100 Concept

More "vision" than "concept", the BMW Vision Next 100 Concept isn't meant to herald some near-term production model. Instead, it's an imagining of the car as it will exist decades down the road. As autonomous driving is considered an inevitability, the 100 has a mode, called "Ease" that retracts the steering wheel, adjusts the seats so it's easier to interact with others in the car, and clouds the windshield for use as a screen. But when you want to take control, the "Boost" mode uses the windshield to overlay information like optimal driving lines, steering points, and speeds. And while all that interior innovation is notable, so too is the exterior, which features a series of triangular "scales" that stretches to accommodate the turning of the faired in wheels, improving aerodynamics. Arriving at a dealer near you sometime in 2055.

  • Renault Alpine Vision Concept

    Responsible for resurrecting a brand known for its sporting heritage, the Renault Alpine Vision Concept is the rare "concept" that's more of a prototype; a sneak peek at a real life vehicle. The lightweight coupe is powered by a mid-mounted, turbocharged four-cylinder engine, good for a 0-62 time of just 4.5 seconds. On the exterior, it features twin round headlights, generous air intakes, large rear wings, and diamond turned wheels, while the two-seat interior is a high-tech mix of leather, microfiber, aluminum, and carbon, the better to match the electronic TFT instrument panel. Built in Dieppe, France, its production descendant will begin to arrive at dealerships next year.

  • Ferrari F80 Concept

    Imagined as the successor to the LaFerrari, Italian designer Adriano Raeli's Ferrari F80 Concept keeps the long nose and wind-funneling rear of its predecessors while making a curious change to the powerplant. Instead of relying on a V12 engine, as Maranello's prior flagship steeds have done, the F80 uses Ferrari's KERS technology to coax a hypothetical 1,200 horses from a twin-turbo hybrid V8. Raeli expects that power to be good for a 0-62 time of 2.2 seconds, and a top speed of 310 mph, fast enough to earn a spot among the fastest production cars of all time — assuming it ever gets built.
