Tesla T1 Concept

We don't know much about the 2030 24 Hours of Le Mans — it's a long way off — but it's a safe bet the cars won't look the same as they do today. This Tesla T1 Concept is an educated guess at what a futuristic racer might look like. Originally conceived for the Michelin Design Challenge 2017, it uses free-standing wheels with in-wheel vertical turbines to pull the air through ducts and into a large turbine at the rear of the car, creating more power in the process. As a whole, the system is speculated to produce 1,000kW of power — equivalent to over 1,340 hp — in a car that weighs only 900 kg. To help manage all that power, it has grippy Michelin tires (naturally) and both the front and rear axle can turn independently, causing the wheelbase to shorten and make the car more agile.

  • Mercedes-Benz Concept A Sedan

    Mercedes' recent string of compact vehicles has led to record sales. The Mercedes-Benz Concept A Sedan is our first look at what the next generation might look like. Its exterior design is notable for its reduction in lines and gaps, Panamericana grille, oversized lower air inlet, 20-inch alloy wheels, and headlamps with a unique grid-like structure made using UV paint, so they glow different colors depending on the light selected. Inside, passengers can enjoy the added room afforded by the offset greenhouse and the views offered by the panoramic glass roof.

  • Genesis GV80 Fuel Cell SUV Concept

    Hyundai makes SUVs, but until now, its luxury brand hasn't ventured beyond sedans and coupes. The Genesis GV80 Fuel Cell SUV Concept is the first look at the brand's take on an SUV, mixing a muscular, sporty body with a forward-looking interior. A plug-in hydrogen fuel cell system provides the power, while a 22-inch curved OLED infinity display keeps the driver and passengers abreast of remaining range and other information. The interior is otherwise covered in semi-aniline leather and ash wood, with metal used sparingly on the trim and knurled physical controls. Outside, there's the signature Genesis crest grille with a lower line that extends the length of the body, 23-inch mesh alloy wheels that help to cool the oversized brakes, laser fiber-optic tail lamps, and an eye-catching Ice Granite finish.
