Jaguar C-X16 Concept

Judging by its sleek, Aston Martin-ish form, you might think that the Jaguar C-X16 Concept ($TBA) was bound to become the company's new flagship speedster. You'd be wrong. Instead, the C-X16 is designed to compete with more affordable sporting coupes, but doesn't skimp on the performance, thanks to a supercharged, 3.0L V6 pumping out 376 horsepower that's paired with an eight-speed gearbox and an electric motor that's linked to a "Push to Pass" button on the steering wheel, boosting output another 92hp and allowing for a 0-62 time of just 4.4 seconds and a top speed of 186 mph. We're not sure when we might see it in production form, but we can guarantee it won't be soon enough. [Scouted by Stuart]

  • Ford Shelby GR-1 Concept

    Own a piece of automotive design history by placing the winning bid on the Ford Shelby GR-1 Concept ($150,000-$200,000; auction). Based on the Ford GT and inspired by the 1964 Shelby Daytona Coupe, this front-engine, two-seat fastback was one of only two such vehicles built, and features 12-spoke, 19-wheels, a distinctive Kamm tail with quad exhaust ports and vertical tail lamps, and an overall design that's futuristic but unmistakably Shelby. Unfortunately for those of you looking forward to driving it, this particular unit was a platform model, and therefore has no engine, drivetrain, or interior.

  • BMW i Series

    We knew it was only a matter of time before BMW got into the electric car game, but we never thought the design of their first models would take the idea so literally. The BMW i Series ($TBA) includes two models that wouldn't be out of place in a sci-fi flick — the all-electric, rear-wheel drive i3 hatchback, which offers 170 hp, seating for four, a top speed of 93 mph, and a 0-60 time of under eight seconds, and the hybrid i8 coupe, which pairs an electric motor running the front wheels and a turbocharged three-cylinder powering the rears for all-wheel drive possibilities, limited range all-electric driving, a 0-60 time of under five seconds, and a perfect 50/50 weight distribution ratio. No word on whether the production models will be as... funky as the concepts.
