Nissan BladeGlider Concept

We're willing to bet you've never seen anything quite like the Nissan BladeGlider Concept ($TBA) before in your life — and for good reason — it is one radical ride. Based on a delta (or triangular) shape, this electric sportscar features a one-plus-two interior layout, with the driver seat isolated up front and the passenger seats in the rear. This design, along with plenty of surfaces designed to create downforce and minimize drag, help to optimize its aerodynamics, while carbon-fiber body panels and a lightweight battery help keep weight down. Little is known yet about the power output of its in-wheel motors, but chances are this thing will be as fast as it looks. The best thing about it: the BladeGlider isn't just a concept, it's also a plan for the future of Nissan's electric sportscar lineup.

  • Jaguar C-X17

    If the Frankfurt Motor Show is any indication, this is shaping up as the year of the crossover SUV — and if that means the Jaguar C-X17 ($TBA) is the new standard, you won't hear much complaining from us. While not particularly daring in terms of style, it has a look that fits surprisingly-nicely with other models we've seen so far from Jaguar, in spite of its higher stance. It's still just a concept, and as is typical, there are scant details about the engine, though it will likely bare some resemblance to its cousins at Land Rover. With any luck, it'll make it into production some time in the near future, making it the first SUV from a company typically known for sports coupes and luxury sedans.

  • Audi Nanuk Quattro Concept

    Unfortunately, the Audi Nanuk Quattro Concept ($TBA) is just one of those things that's too good to be true — too strange and too exciting to ever make it into production — but that shouldn't stop you drooling over it. A sort of supercar crossover, this Audi boasts a twin-turbocharged V-10 diesel TDI engine that outputs 544 horsepower and a staggering 738 pound-feet of torque. All that muscle coupled with a special variant of their Quattro all-wheel drive system and adjustable ground clearance would make this car fairly capable on even the roughest roads. As if that wasn't enough, it gets 30 miles to the gallon, and features integral steering (the rear wheels turn slightly in the opposite direction of the front wheels, giving it better handling in turns). Here's hoping at least some of this tech sees the streets one day soon.
