For those of you who don’t know, a concept car is the result of car manufacturers and more specifically designers a free reign over the car they build, it can look how they want act and act how they want.
Now as a general rule of thumb these cars rarely get made, however, they will very often take pieces of ingenuity and innovation com the concept car and adapt it into the next commercial vehicles such as reverse parking sensors and self parking cars, these began as conceptual ideas.
So I have brought you 3 phenomenal concept cars past and present ( and I suppose ‘future’) that I really would love to see made and on the road.
The Audi Nanuk
First displayed at the 2013 Frankfurt motor show this diesel powered sports car offers you 544bhp and a top speed of 198mph has a trick up it’s sleeve. The Audi Nanuk has 4 wheel drive and the rear wheels have the ability to turn up to 9 degrees in the opposite direction to the front which makes for some phenomenal cornering, the Nanuk is also designed for off road activity and offers a 3 stage air suspension system. Add some suicide doors and a typically sleek Audi interior and we have quite a car on our hands. Sadly it doesn’t lipoid good in terms of it ever going in to production but here’s hoping!! After showing off your petrol-head tendencies in this bad-boy, you’ll be better off remembering the British tyre service www.tyre-shopper.co.uk for reinforcements!
BMW M1 Homage
First released in 2008 for the 30th anniversary of the M1 super sports car this deliciously designed mid engine BMW is beautiful, doffing it’s cap to the original M1 with those front grills the Homage has made a slight change and lost the ‘pop up’ headlights which were a recognisable feature of the original. Sadly the spec for the car were never released nor were photos of the interior, but based on what we’ve seen of this car and trusting BMW’s production in the way we all do there is little doubt that this car would look, feel and perform with gusto and I for one hope they go back to the drawing board and start producing this car.
The Toyota Fun-Vii has ‘fun’ in the title for a reason, firstly, the inside and outside of the car are made of large display screens that can be changed with a simple download by the user, giving you free reign to change the look of your car in a heartbeat continuing with the ‘smartphone on wheels idea’ the Fun-Vii, there is also a network based connection in the car to find out where your friends your friends are. The Toyota also has touchscreen doors ( as if you didn’t look cool enough!) and the majority of the aesthetics and software for the car can be operated from your smartphone, obviously not to drive it, not yet anyway.
