Amazing Concept Cars

Concept cars are always coming along to tantalise petrol heads and tease them with the type of technology that will be present in the vehicles of tomorrow. Although the cars rarely make it out of the prototype phase and onto the market, meaning chances are you’ll never have to worry about crazy insurance premiums for one of these beasts, they still have a marked impact. Here is a quick look at the ten best concept cars of the past 12 months that will probably sit outside insurance groups for cars as we know them.

Citroen Survolt

Now Citroen aren’t really known for their stunning cars, but this electric racer, this will take you to 62mph in four seconds and hit 162mph when going flat out, which means in terms of car insurance UK users will be looking at a costly group. A 300hp engine will draw 124 miles in range from the batteries, although you will only achieve this if you treat the throttle lightly.

An IndyCar for the future, the Deltawing Concept is supremely aerodynamic and aims at eliminating turbulence to give racers the edge over their competitors. Can you guys see 20 of these flinging round a track? I think not…

Nearly 40 years after the most famous Stratos was tearing up the track, a new Lancia vehicle has made an appearance, bringing with it Ferrari Enzo-topping performance and stunning retro looks.

Porsche 918 Spyder

Porsche takes time to alter its designs and the 918 Spyder is definitely a step in the right direction. Packed with a 3.4 litre V8 that can deliver over 500 horses, we believe this is actually going into production, you may have seen our post on the Porsche 918 RSR Coupe which we are told will be the race version, with the Spyder going into production. So one day the dream will live.

Audi E-Tron

Looking much like an electric-powered version of the Audi TT, the E-Tron came in soft and hardtop varieties, complete with a hybrid engine that provides quiet, clean operation for the city and a bit more performance and range via diesel for long distance jaunts. Although we love this just like the new TT, for us it isn’t really pushing the boundaries of Audi…

With a central driving position, this hybrid coupe cabriolet was an exercise in creating a beautiful if impractical car. For us this is stunning, but it won’t all go to waste, the engine will be stripped out and used in coming road vehicles to help keep costs down for car insurance online, but this will remain as yet another gorgeous pipe dream.

American cars are usually far from the prettiest on the market, but the GMC Granite shows that you can actually take a boxy design and soften it enough to make it sparkle. Not the fastest or flashiest car in the list, but if it ever did go into production, it may be just right for consumers to be able to afford.

This car celebrates 100 years of Alpha Romeo and 80 years of the Pinifarina manufacturing firm in style. A poised roadster with a drop top, it shows that the Italians really know how to build vehicles with style no matter who they are catering for.

Renault Dezir

Built by a partnership of Nissan and Renault, you may remember us featuring this electric car last year which actually looks like a Bugatti Veyron, which is no mean feat. It may be a little too ostentatious for some but being brash and unpredictable is what concept cars are all about.

Last, but by no means least the Jaguar C-X75 which you remember us showing you in the past. This is a celebratory vehicle built to showcase various elements from previous Jaguar classics while featuring a dual-power setup which pulls 205mph from a combination of electric batteries and gas-powered jet turbines.
