Mercedes-Benz F125 Concept

When you've been in business for 125 years — and spent many of them making arguably the world's finest production vehicles — you're allowed to "dream big" sometimes. Which helps to explain the Mercedes-Benz F125 Concept ($TBA). The F125 might just offer a glimpse of our motoring future, with its hybrid electric/hydrogen propulsion, e4MATIC all-wheel-drive, touch, speech, and gesture controls for the car's various functions, which you'll monitor on the 3D and projector-beam displays, fully-realized Internet integration, and enormous but lightweight gullwing doors that offer access to both the front and rear passenger compartments. Let's just hope it doesn't take another 125 years for something like this to hit the road.

  • Cadillac Ciel Concept

    Ever watch an old period piece and yearn for the casual, oversized, four-seat convertibles of the early 20th century? Apparently so do the designers at Cadillac, as that seems to be the inspiration for the Cadillac Ciel Concept ($TBA). This elongated drop-top boasts a hybrid system pairing a lithium-ion battery with a twin-turbocharged, 3.6L V6, four full-sized doors with suicides in the rear, a polished aluminum windshield frame, an interior borne of body-colored panels, wood, and leather, 22-inch rims featuring brushed nickel plating overtop milled aluminum, carbon ceramic brake rotors, LED lighting elements, a power-assisted transmission shifter, heating and cooling features in all the seats, and tons of other features that recall a bygone era of simple luxury.

  • 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.
