Infiniti Prototype 9 Race Car

It's not a "prototype" in the truest sense of the word — it's not a test run for a later production car. Instead, the Infiniti Prototype 9 Race Car is a one-off concept that reimagines a 1940s race car. While its steel body panels and steel ladder frame were built by hand using old-school manufacturing techniques, it's powered by an electric motor producing 148 hp. As a result, it can hit a top speed of over 100 mph and goes from 0-62 in just 5.5 seconds, but won't be of much use anywhere but the track, as its battery only lets it run for roughly 20 minutes at a time. For a firsthand glimpse, visit the 2017 Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance.

  • Mercedes E-Class All-Terrain 4×4²

    Started as a hobby car for Mercedes engineer Jürgen Eberle, the Mercedes E-Class All-Terrain 4×4² is now a full-blown concept. While it's based on the standard All-Terrain, it borrows some parts from other models, including the portal axles of the G500 4x4² and a 328 hp, 3.5L turbo V6 from the E400 wagon. It's also 1.5 inches taller and nearly eight inches wider, a stance accommodated by new carbon fiber fender flares, all of which gives it clearance of over 16 inches, approach and departure angles of 35.8 and 35.6 degrees, respectively, and the ability to tackle almost 20 inches of water. No word yet on if it will ever see production, but given MB's history of building absurd off-roaders, we wouldn't rule it out.

  • Tesla Roadster Y Concept

    Rumors have been swirling that Telsa is working on a successor to the Roadster, the first model from the electric car company which ended production in 2012. While nothing has been confirmed as of yet, Tesla co-founder Elon Musk did drop a hint at the new Roadster having a 0-60 time of fewer than two seconds, beating the Model S P100D's Ludicrous mode. Keeping with the Spaceballs theme for the high-performance setting, there's only one suitable name left — Maximum Plaid. But until official word comes down from Tesla, we'll have to be content with this excellent concept work by Brazillian designer Vinicius Buch. The slightly asymmetrical open-top roadster features swipe-to-unlock doors and a Tesla logo that doubles as a start button. On the inside, a very minimalist dash has a split touch screen and keyboard, and a very squarish steering wheel. The actual Roadster is rumored for a 2019 launch, so until then we'll have to be content with dreams.
