Behold: The Essentia – an electric prototype by Genesis Motors – the luxury division of South Korean manufacturer Hyundai.

A long-snouted, carbon fibre and aluminium sports car inspired by 1960s grand tourers, revealed at last week’s 2018 New York International Motor Show.


This is the Aston Martin Lagonda Vision Concept – step one in the creation of what Aston Martin modestly describes as ‘the world’s first zero emission luxury brand’.

With an all-electric powertrain and 640km range, the vehicle has a massive interior with retractable steering wheel and up-and-out swinging doors for ease of access.

Production is due to start by 2021.


Behold the soon-to-be-constructed Tankoa Project Bolide Yacht – 603m² of floor space, 500m² of retractable glass, three pools, five VIP suites, a helipad, jacuzzi and multiple lounge areas, all conceived by  Italian designer Fabio Mazzeo.

You might need two.


Behold the 2018 BMW Z4 or something very similar to it.

Long, low, more aggressive in stance than its curvy predecessor, which went out of production last summer, its lines unchanged since 2009.

The new Z4 will be launched at Monteray Car Week next August. Price tba.

Barbara Motorcycle Concepts will take a photograph of your hog and (via Photoshop) give life to your vision, from a simple saddle change to a complete fantasy rebuild.

No actual bikes, just dreams.

The two-seater all-electric coupé Renault Trezor – just voted Most Beautiful Concept Car of 2016 at the 2017 Festival International De l’Automobile.

Le phwooaar.

Quite frankly.

Gnarly concepts by Estonian designer Rain Prisk: racy brands from Ferrari, McLaren, Porsche and others adapted for all-terrain use and rendered into appropriately rugged environments.

From that dream you had where you were an off-roading billionaire.

The Seataci concept yacht – an idea conceived by the renowned Canadian industrial designer Charles Bombardier.

The main hull is ballasted and submersible, allowing for underwater viewing areas. The propulsion system is biomimetic, with twin foils on either side of the main hull pushing back water like a whale’s flukes.

The dreamboat also features ‘a dozen villas and two landing pads specially designed for personal flying drones’.

As soon as someone invents personal flying drones, we’re heading out to sea.

The Mercedes Benz X Class concept – a luxurious V6, 4 wheel drive pickup truck scheduled for launch next year and probably not destined for much in the way of farm duties.

The Mercedes Benz Generation EQ – a concept electric SUV coupe launched this week at the Paris Motor Show with cameras for mirrors, concealed wipers, an optical fibre LED illuminated grille and a 60cm widescreen instrument display.

Mercedes claims the car will do 0 -100km/h in under five seconds with a 500km range on a full charge when it goes on sale.

In 2019.
