These Amazing Concept Cars Will Make You Want To Take Trip To The Future

Mon 12th Mar 2018

One of the real highlights of the Geneva Motor Show, or indeed any motor show, is seeing the cars the future on display – this year’s Geneva jamboree did not disappoint.

So what were the real headline grabbers this year? We choose the top five concept cars on display.

Hyundai – Le Fil Rouge
Designed by the head of Hyundai’s European operation, Luc Donckerwolke – a man whose CV includes Lamborghini’s and Bentley, this has been described as ‘sensuous sportiness’ which should create ‘heightened emotional value’. We don’t actually know what that means, but heck, who cares, this four-door coupe is certainly stirring something.

Volkswagen – I.D. Vizzion
We won’t have to wait too long to see the latest VW  electric car to hit the roads as we’ve been promised production models  by 2022. The German manufacturer is making bold claims that the Vizzion will be able to reach over 400 miles on a single charge, thanks in part to a battery pack, which is bigger than anything Tesla can currently match.

Porsche – Mission E
Porsche are promising speed when they bring their first EV model to production in 2019, and we are not just talking about the 3.5sec 0-62mph time. The German manufacturer expects drivers to be able to reach an 80% charge in just 15 minutes. It’s believed that to assist with their economical battery charging they have enlisted the expertise of electronics company Hitachi.

BMW – M8 Gran Coupe
We expect to see the 8 Series very soon from BMW, so what’s the fuss about this M8 then? Well, to put it bluntly, it’s a Gran Coupe, which means that it’s a souped-up, ultra-high performance version of an already very fast car. With double-wishbones at the front and multi-link rear suspension and rear suspension, could with rear wheel drive and air suspension, this Beemer is destined to deliver the wow factor.

Toyota – Supra GR Racing
This sporty number has been producing gasps of awe at Geneva all week. The production version of this classic will be the fifth generation of the Supra and there are serious suggestions that it may actually come with a Gazoo badge, rather than a Toyota, in tribute to Toyota’s Racing performance division.
