100 years is a long time for any company to stay in business — but especially a car company. The Maserati Alfieri Concept was created to celebrate the trident's centennial while serving as a hint of what the company's next sports car will be. Inspired in part by the 1954 Maserati A6 GCS-53, this 2+2 offers features like a 4.7L V8 engine good for 460 hp, a six-speed electro-actuated gearbox, Brembo brakes, TFT displays in the instrument panel, bi-xenon and LED headlamps, three dimensional candy-cane tail lights, 21-inch wheels, and a liquid metal-colored paint job. Let's just hope it doesn't take another hundred years to make it.
Yes, it's still a concept, but unlike most of Volvo's recent study cars, the Volvo Estate Concept provides a glimpse at what the Swedish car maker's upcoming models will look like on the inside. The dash of this three-door wagon is dominated by a large, tablet-like touch screen that replaces virtually all controls save for volume, play/pause, hazards, and window heaters, and integrates with the digital gauge cluster. The interior also boasts supple leather, naturally-aged wood accents, and sleek forms inspired by Scandanavian living rooms. Details on the engine, gearbox, and other essentials for actual driving are slim, but like most concepts, it doesn't really matter since it's never going on sale anyway.
If you've ever been driving along in your car and wished for a better vantage point to see the road ahead, your dream is (nearly) a reality, thanks to the Renault Kwid Concept. This bizarre-looking two-wheel-drive, dual-clutch 1.2-liter turbocharged buggy channels the look of an off-roader, and has one important feature — an aerial drone that docks on the rear portion of the roof, flying above the car as it drives. Able to be piloted automatically or manually, and controlled from a built-in tablet in the dashboard, you can use the drone to survey traffic, take aerial photography, or just confuse passers-by. Just make sure not to fly it manually while you're actually driving.
