Jaguar Cars introduces the Concept Speedboat

Jaguar Cars has introduced ‘The Concept Speedboat by Jaguar Cars’ at the international driving debut of the new Jaguar XF Sportbrake. This one-of-a-kind concept demonstrates Jaguar’s design DNA in a package that’s outstanding and totally unexpected. This project to build the Concept Speedboat is headed by Jaguar Director of Design, Ian Callum.

He said that Jaguar knows that its current customers as well as potential ones have lifestyles that are diverse and active. He explained that when the new Jaguar XF Sportbrake was set to be launched, they saw a chance for its design philosophy to be used on an alternative product. He said that the Concept Speedboat exudes power and has the features of a traditional speedboat but with a Jaguar car’s characteristics of sleekness and speed.

In developing the Concept Speedboat, Jaguar Cars consulted with a yacht design specialist and a bespoke design project management firm. The Concept Speedboat has a gel coat fibreglass hull finished on top with a natural teak decking.

Geneva 2018: Hyundai signals new Sensuous Sportiness design theme with Le Fil Rouge Concept

Soon, Hyundai’s new vehicles – from sedans to sports utility vehicles -- will be donning a completely new look as the South Korean carmaker is introducing a completely new design language. This new design theme is now being previewed through a new design concept named Le Fil Rouge at the 2018 Geneva Motor Show.

The new Hyundai Le Fil Rouge concept car represents the first embodiment of the new Sensuous Sportiness design language. Meant to deliver a glimpse of the brand’s future design direction, Le Fil Rouge – which means “common thread” in English –reflects Hyundai’s belief that its past, present and future designs are all linked.

In particular, the Le Fil Rouge concept car reinterprets – in a very modern and advanced manner – a Hyundai concept unveiled around 44 years ago at the Turin Motor Show, the 1974 Hyundai Coupe Concept. Thus, the Le Fil Rouge concept car links Hyundai’s past design (1974) to its present, as well as to its future styling. According to the Executive Vice President and head of Hyundai Design Center, Luc Donckerwolke, the carmaker builds on its long history of distinctive and sporty vehicles to open a new era for Hyundai design.

SsangYong is practically announcing its intentions to offer an electric vehicle –an SUV competing in the C-segment – by unveiling the new SsangYong e-SIV electric concept at the 2018 Geneva Motor Show. Penned under the design concept of ‘New horizon, smart dynamism,’ the new e-SIV embodies the brand’s future approach to electric vehicles, autonomous driving as well as connectivity.

Building SUVs is nothing new to SsangYong, as the South Korean carmaker prides itself as a specialist maker of utilities and other vehicles that are designed for on-the-road and off-the-road use. The brand sees the new vehicle concept as instrumental in shaping the next generation of its utilities and EVs. The new e-SIV – which stands for stands for Electronic Smart Interface Vehicle -- is SsangYong’s fifth electric car concept shown at Geneva Motor Show. It follows the KEV1 in 2010, KEV2 in 2011, e-XIV in 2012, and Tivoli EV-R in 2015.

Essentially, SsangYong developed and built the new e-SIV concept to demonstrate not just its commitment to electric vehicles, but also its approach to creating a connected mobility solution and autonomous driving. As intended, the new e-SIV is both a styling study and a technology concept.

It isn't just a vehicle as it is also a service. This is how Renault describes its latest concept, the Renault EZ-GO, at its official unveiling at the 2018 Geneva Motor Show. The new EZ-GO previews the future of both personal and shared mobility, as packaged in an all-electric, autonomous ride.

According to the French carmaker, the new EZ-GO is an electric, autonomous robo-vehicle and ride-hailing concept that features an iconic design that allows it to integrate into the environment while maximizing new ways of urban mobility.

With operations undertaken by either private or public companies, EZ-GO allows people to hail a ride either from a pre-determined or a mobile location. Renault believes that mobility solutions and smart cities of the future could achieve success by integrating vehicle-service to city infrastructure, as this enables them to leverage sensors, data analytics and connected services as well as multimodal systems.

German premium carmaker BMW is officially previewing in metal the precursor model for the most exotic variant of its new flagship model. Providing a glimpse of the new BMW 8 Series Gran Coupe and the BMW M8 Gran Coupe, the new BMW Concept M8 Gran Coupe is being unveiled at the 2018 Geneva Motor Show.

Essentially, the new BMW Concept M8 Gran Coupe serves as a follow up for the BMW 8 Series Coupe Concept. Unveiled in 2017, the 8 Series Coupe Concept offers a glimpse into the possible design of the much-awaited 8 Series grand tourer that will be launched into the market this year as part of BMW’s massive product offensive. Adrian van Hooydonk, Senior Vice President BMW Group Design, remarked that the Concept M8 Gran Coupe serves as a window to what he described as the most exotic and alluring variant of the new 8 Series flagship. It defines luxury in a whole new meaning – it is polarizing and ultra-sporty.

Just like the BMW Concept 8 Series, the new BMW Concept M8 Gran Coupe is influenced by BMW’s new design language, as evident on its expressive surfaces, which graphic arrangement is underscored by precise character lines. The front end sports a muscular, precisely contoured bonnet as well as radiator grille kidneys which contours broaden as they drop towards the road to emphasize the low center of gravity of the Concept M8 Gran Coupe.

Audi’s first all-electric model is on the way, and the German premium carmaker is brandishing a new model -- the Audi e-tron prototype SUV – at the 2018 Geneva Motor Show. This new prototype serves as a precursor of an upcoming all-electric sporty SUV from the brand with the four rings.

The Audi e-tron prototype is wrapped in camouflage, but this isn’t the traditional prototype disguise. Whereas traditional camouflage is intended to conceal the true appearance of a certain new model before they are officially revealed to the public, the one worn by the vehicle simply reveals the status of this study as a prototype that will be used for various tests.

The camouflage worn by the e-tron prototype is a specially developed design film that expresses the vehicle’s designation as an e-tron model. The camouflage is basically a distorted e-tron lettering that spans from the front end, through the flanks, over the roof and to the rear end.

As early as 2018, Volkswagen already has a clear vision of its sedan offering for the year 2030. As an embodiment of that vision, the German carmaker is presenting at the 2018 Geneva Motor Show the all-electric I.D. Vizzion Concept, a four-door sedan boasting of full autonomy and artificial intelligence.

Joining the I.D. compact, I.D. Crozz SUV and I.D. Buzz microbus in the carmaker’s I.D. family, the I.D. Vizzion Concept offers level 5 autonomy, with operations directed through voice and gesture. It is capable of learning, as made possible by artificial intelligence. Volkswagen will launch the I.D. Family at the start of the next decade, bringing into the market new electric vehicles featuring visionary designs and long driving ranges.

On the exterior, the all-electric sedan by VW, envisioned for 2030, looks like a typical four-door model of today. In terms of dimensions, it measures 203.3 inches in length, 76.7 inches in width and 59.3 inches I height. Thanks to the fact that the I.D. Vizzion has a long roof and wheelbase (122.0 inches) as well as short front and rear overhangs, the concept offers more space than current premium sedan in the market.

Known for its Icona Vulcano supercar concept, Italian design firm Icona is unveiling a new study that embodies its vision for the future of mobility, as first defined by the Icona Neo Concept in 2015. The latest study – the new Icona Nucleus Concept – is being unveiled at the 2018 Geneva Motor Show as a fully autonomous living room in wheels.

When the Icona Neo Concept was unveiled years ago, it signaled the design company’s vision for an electrically powered four-seat vehicle for busy people at busy metropolitan areas. Now, Icona is taking this electrically charged vision to a whole new level by creating a concept vehicle that is fully autonomous (Level 5 driving autonomy) – the Nucleus.

Furthermore, the Nucleus isn't just an ordinary vehicle as users don’t take it for a drive, but for a ride. Riders could just imagine a luxurious lounge or living room with the necessary features and convenient details, but with four wheels. A user just needs to step into the Icona Nucleus, sit back and relax. After several minutes or hours, its riders are already at their destination – minus the hustle and stress brought by driving.

Peugeot literally had just released their newest van, the family friendly Rifter, and a couple of hours later, they already have a concept version of it, which is the so called Rifter 4x4 Concept that they have designed to “explore large spaces” and adventures on any type of terrain.

What I have just mentioned isn’t hype. As proof, the all wheel drive was developed together with Dangel. This has a higher suspension compared to the standard model with 80 mm of additional ground clearance. The central console also has a selector where the driver could choose which of the three AWD drive modes he wants to pick.

There’s a 2RM with only front driving wheels for more efficiency, 4RM for when you want the power to be taken exclusively to the rear wheels, which could work on drifting, and last is a Lock mode where the rear axle is locked for maximum traction in extreme conditions.

Mercedes-Benz recently published an AMG Project One teaser, and just by hearing those words, I am pretty sure that we got you excited. But here is the thing, it wasn’t a teaser of a hyper car this time, but a boat instead - or should we say hyper boat?

This boat is not like any regular boat out there, but it can be more accurately described as a Cigarette Racing offshore powerboat. It has been inspired by the impressive Mercedes-AMG Project One. The good news here is that we have been given full disclosure on this boat, and we are telling you now that it isn’t like your regular seagoing yacht that has an automaker’s badge but cannot perform. In fact, this is quite the opposite of that. With over 51 feet in length, this model is packed with carbon fiber, and can do 140 miles per hour (225 kilometers per hour) on water.

This boat is called the Cigarette Racing 515 Project One. It does not have the hypercar’s monstrous engine but that is completely fine with us. In fact, the Mercedes AMG Project One’s 1,000 horsepower engine will not get the boat anywhere near 140 miles per hour, and that is why this water borne Project One has been equipped with a pair of Mercury Racing quad-cam V8 engine that brings out 1,350 horsepower (1,006 kilowatts) each.

Infiniti finally decides to share with us its Q Inspiration Concept at the recent 2018 North American International Auto Show. And whether you like the design of it or not, you better get used to it because this will be the look of next generation Infiniti vehicles.

For us, we actually find the Q Inspiration’s design quite fascinating. The grille alone is a head turner, considering the fact that it features a weird but interesting design of the company’s current double arch, filling it tightly with louvres. The air intakes on the lower fascia and the wheels give it a sporty aesthetic too. The shape of the headlights looks like cuts, which are complemented by similar lines on the hood.

Moving on to the rear, the design transitions into a sleeker look. The rear is like a fastback, and this flows from a smooth roof with thin pillars. The rounded tail is slightly understated with integrated exhausts. The rear is finished with a long strip of tail lights that stretch from one end to the other, while picking up some design cues from the sharp edged headlights.

Check out this Ferrari S2 Concept that none of us can get our hands on. Why, you ask? Well, because it only exists in the virtual world. It was designed with aggressive lines, together with huge wheels, and bulky fenders. Now, doesn’t that make you wish it could come to life? Just imagine how quick this car could be when doing laps.

It was designer Sachin Zakarde from Mumbai, India, who created this so called S2’s design on his Behance page, and as you can see, it has a lot of carbon fiber components - from the side skirts, the wheels and even the roof. Speaking of the design, its nose will remind you of a Formula One car, with it being a little suspended, as well as the half rear wing it has got. As for the rear wing, we don’t know the real purpose of it but it does not really take anything away from the concept’s overall aggressiveness.

What’s odd is that the design of this car may have been considered too futuristic a few years back, but in fact, this S2 Concept actually looks wilder than the LaFerrari. Wild in a good way though.

The current Lexus LX has been around for quite some time now. That means that it will have to be given a major upgrade if it is to continue to keep up with its rivals. The answer to this dilemma appears to be the recently unveiled LF-1 Limitless Concept. Though it may just be a concept for now, this could actually be a preview of the all new LX. After all, Lexus did say in an interview that their next concept could likely shape the future of a flagship luxury crossover.

To design the Lexus LF-1 Limitless, the automaker partnered with CALTY Design Research in California. The collaboration came up with a concept that has a bold exterior design, which was created by the same team that helped in the FT-1 project that acts as a preview to the new Supra. Similar to some concepts out there, it sits on a set of large 22 inch wheels, while adopting a sharp appearance in line with the company’s recent models.

To be more specific, the LF-1 Limitless’ dimensions are: 5014 mm (197.4 inches) long, 1986 mm (78.2 inches) wide, and 1605 mm (63.2 inches) in height. The concept is just a little bit longer and wider than the LX, and also sits closer to the ground. As for the wheelbase, it is a bit shorter than that of the LX, stretching at 2974 mm (117.1 inches).

If you had plans to head to the 2018 Detroit Auto Show this month to see cars like the BMW Concept X7 iPerformance, we have got some bad news for you. The concept car is currently not on display because it got into an accident on its way there.

The very first time we saw this concept was at the Frankfurt Motor Show in September. It was then followed by another public appearance in the United States, just six weeks ago. The concept’s next schedule was then supposed to already be at Detroit, unfortunately, it is not meant to be.

In their statement to Autonews, the automaker just said that the X7 Concept got damaged while being transported to Detroit by delivery truck, though they did not share any more details regarding the accident or how it happened. We also do not know how heavily damaged it was. To replace the X7 Concept in the show, the automaker displayed a standard 7 Series sedan instead.

Nissan is well-known for creating groundbreaking crossovers as well as sports utility vehicles. At the 2018 North American International Auto Show (Detroit Auto Show), the Japanese carmaker has unveiled a new design study that signals its design direction for 2020 and beyond – in the form of the new Nissan Xmotion three-row SUV Concept.

Pronounced as “cross motion,” the Xmotion concept explores the possible design for Nissan’s future compact SUV. It features a striking exterior that looks into the future with its sculpted body and menacing front end, as well as a well-crafted interior inspired by Japanese landscape. Just like a purposeful traditional SUV, the Xmotion comes with a high stance, bulked-up fenders, high-utility proportions as well as all-terrain-ready wheels and tires. The new Xmotion delivers American-style utility while taking inspiration from Japanese culture, and also fusing traditional craftsmanship with new-generation Nissan Intelligent Mobility technology.

The new Nissan Xmotion concept sports a bold evolution of the brand’s signature V-motion grille, now wider and deeper, to the point that this new form was the inspiration behind the name of the concept. The new grille dons horizontal bars inspired by Japanese architecture, featuring a blade-like appearance with deep carbon color and high-gloss finish. Nissan hopes to employ this evolved V-motion grille for future production crossovers and SUVs.

Acura has unveiled the 2019 Acura RDX Prototype at the 2018 North American International Auto Show (Detroit Auto Show), and as expected, the precursor to the luxury brand’s next generation of the premium compact sports utility vehicle didn’t fail to impress. It seems like Acura is sticking to the formula that allowed the RDX to become a best-seller, while adding more space, power and luxury.

Although the Acura RDX unleashed at the Detroit Auto Show is labeled as a Prototype, it is seen as very close to the final production version. Both Honda and Acura are famous for revealing prototypes that are very similar to their final production versions. Thus, the 2019 Acura RDX Prototype could simply be a production-ready example of the newest generation of the premium compact SUV.

The new Acura RDX Prototype embodies the most extensive Acura redesign in more than a decade. Completely redesigned from top to bottom, the RDX Prototype is the first Acura model to fully employ the brand’s new exterior design language that made its debut in the Acura Precision Concept. It is also the first Acura model to feature the new interior design and technology shown in the Acura Precision Cockpit. As penned, the new Acura RDX Prototype features a design that starts from the luxury brand’s signature diamond pentagon grille, and continues through its sharply sculpted body, dynamic character lines. The Acura RDX Prototype features all-LED exterior lighting that makes use of the next-generation Acura Jewel Eye LED headlights.

Automakers that have teamed up with Formula 1, like Mercedes-AMG, develop the coolest road-going supercars just like the Project One. Aston Martin and Red Bull, on the other hand, have their own Valkyrie supercar. Well, it seems like Toyota is next in line, as they bank on their expertise in the FIA World Endurance Championship (WEC) to develop what they call the GR Super Sport. This may just be a concept for now, however, Akio Toyoda, Toyota’s president, expressed his intentions towards developing a production hybrid supercar.

So what can we expect from the GR Super Sport Concept? First of all, it seems like it was inspired by Toyota’s LMP1 models, not just when looking at it from the outside, but also when studying what’s under the hood. The automaker even confirms this by saying that it was built very similarly as the TS050 Hybrid, so we could consider it to be the perfect race car for the road.

Under the hood of this concept is a 2.4 liter biturbo V6 engine, which is paired with a battery considering the fact that it is a hybrid model. Overall, it can produce as much as 986 horsepower (735 kilowatts) when speaking of output, or should I say 1,000 PS. The GR Super Sport Concept sits on a set of 18 inch wheels, wrapped in matching 330/710 R18 tires. It comes with two exhaust tips mounted up in the back where the rear window can usually be found. This concept does not have side mirrors of conventional glass, but instead, gets a pair of cameras for the driver to see what’s behind. Two more cameras that look like they are floating can also be found on the front fenders.

There is nothing more exciting happening this month than the 2018 Tokyo Auto Salon - especially with all the concepts that are being uncovered. Apart from the Toyota GR Super Sport with almost 1,000 horsepower, the next one in line is the new Subaru Viziv Performance STI. In other words, it means a new WRX STI is being developed as the concept provides a number of things to come as far as the sporty sedan’s next generation.

So what can we expect? Well, the automaker has not shared a lot of technical details but they did say that the concept will give us an idea of what the future will look like for Subaru - with their goal to deliver enjoyment and peace of mind to its customers.

When looking at the images, the front fascia shows a more aggressive and race-ready Viziv Performance concept. The bumper now looks beefier, while the alloy wheels look bigger. The quad exhaust in the rear is quite prominent, as well as the massive rear wing with side extensions. Overall, it looks a lot like the concept we saw last October at the Tokyo Motor Show, but with race ready bits and pieces.
