Behold: the Audi PB I8 E-tron – a ‘shooting brake’ style electric hypercar concept from the German manufacturer.

The driver enters on the left but, once seated, the entire monocoque slides into a central position – the ideal perch for a frankly alarming two second travel time from zero to 100km/h.

The prototype recently debuted at the 2018 Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance in advance of any firm production dates.

Behold: Galaxion – a firmly-in-the-realm-of-science-fiction concept grand tourer from designer Daniel Simon’s book Cosmic Motors.

Powered by a miniature fusion reactor with a chassis made from bioengineered mussel shells, the Galaxion is intended as a runabout for the aristocrats of some faraway planet.

Yours in your dreams.

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.

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.

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.
