Tempted by the MINI's go-cart handling, but not a fan of its boxy exterior? The MINI Coupé Concept ($TBA) is for you. Ready to accept any of MINI's powerhouse engines, including the 1.6L twin-scroll turbocharged unit from the MINI John Cooper Works, this stylish two-seater pairs a decidedly MINI-like bottom with an aggressively designed upper half, including a swept back windshield, short contrast roof, hidden B-pillars, and more sexy than every other modern MINI combined.
The Rolls-Royce 200EX ($TBA) is a more modern and more approachable take on the stuffy Rolls-Royce design. Styling is clearly all Rolls, but the smaller wheelbase and overall size means you'll look less like the king of a South African country and more like the king of your block. It's powered by a V12 and has, as expected, a luxurious interior with natural grain Crème Light leather, wood veneer, Cornsilk carpets, and a cashmere blend headliner. While Rolls is still calling this a concept, word on the street is that there will be little changes made before an official 2010 production model, tentatively called the RR4.
While it might be just a concept for now, we're already itching to add the Volkswagen Concept BlueSport ($TBA) to our stable. Powered by a 2.0-liter turbodiesel that pumps out 180hp, good for a 0-60 time of 6.2 seconds and a top speed of 140, while managing 35 mpg in normal mode and more than 62 mpg in Eco mode. With a mid-engine layout that provides great weight distribution and a convertible body just 13 feet in length, it's a sporty, eco-friendly blast.
