Rolls-Royce 200EX

Rolls-Royce 200EX

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.

  • sQuba

    More than 30 years since Roger Moore's 007 put the idea into every guy's head, someone has finally replicated the underwater auto experience. Swiss design company Rinspeed has created the sQuba ($1.4 million), the world's first submersible car. Based on the Lotus Elise (it was a Lotus Esprit in The Spy Who Loved Me), the all-electric convertible can drive you to the lake in style and then dive underwater to a depth of over 30 feet. The car's engine was removed and replaced by three motors — one for land driving, good for up to 75 mph, and two others for the underwater propellers. Power is supplied by rechargeable Lithium-Ion batteries. You can check the sQuba out in person at the Geneva Motor Show next month, but, unfortunately, there are no current plans to build others besides this prototype.

  • Hummer HX Concept

    According to insiders, you're looking at the basis for the upcoming H4 — but whether they call it HX, H4, or H-ellion, it's pretty hard-ass. The Hummer HX Concept ($TBA) is all-Hummer, with full-time 4WD, 35-inch tires, an advanced front suspension with an electronic-disconnecting stabilizer bar, and an E85 FlexFuel 3.6L SIDI V-6. However, it also borrows some ideas long assocoiated with rival Jeep, including a removable roof panels, doors, and fender flares, and a modular rear roof assembly that can also be completely removed, turning the HX into a true convertible. Add to that its rugged, Halo-esque exterior styling, and you've got a great two-door off-roader that we can't wait to get our hands on. [More Photos]
