1969 Holden Hurricane

1969 Holden Hurricane

Sometimes the future invented by the past is even more exciting than the one we're actually living. The 1969 Holden Hurricane ($TBA) is a perfect example. Originally unveiled at the 1969 Melbourne Motor Show, this sleek ride featured a mid-mounted, 262hp V8 engine boasting advanced components such as the four-barrel carburetor, rear-wheel drive, a glorious fold-forward windshield assembly in lieu of doors, and "futuristic" features like electronic digital instrument displays, a radio with seek capability, automatic temperature control, a rear-vision camera, and a quasi-GPS system called the "Pathfinder". Come to think of it, that sounds an awful lot like the present — only most of our cars aren't this good looking.

  • 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.

  • Jaguar C-X16 Concept

    Judging by its sleek, Aston Martin-ish form, you might think that the Jaguar C-X16 Concept ($TBA) was bound to become the company's new flagship speedster. You'd be wrong. Instead, the C-X16 is designed to compete with more affordable sporting coupes, but doesn't skimp on the performance, thanks to a supercharged, 3.0L V6 pumping out 376 horsepower that's paired with an eight-speed gearbox and an electric motor that's linked to a "Push to Pass" button on the steering wheel, boosting output another 92hp and allowing for a 0-62 time of just 4.4 seconds and a top speed of 186 mph. We're not sure when we might see it in production form, but we can guarantee it won't be soon enough. [Scouted by Stuart]
