Polestar 1 high-performance hybrid coupe is rendered as a convertible by X-Tomi

Very recently, Polestar unveiled its very first production model in the form of the Polestar 1 high-performance hybrid coupe. Yet, there are already people who are wondering how a Polestar 1 would look like once it transforms into a convertible. Imagining such could be hard, so a rendering by graphic artist X-Tomi could provide some help.

X-Tomi had actually rendered the Polestar 1 coupe as the Polestar 1 shooting brake or estate wagon. This version of the Polestar comes with a full-length roof and a rear end similar to a hatchback. In a way, the Polestar 1 shooting brake would allow Polestar to offer a unique mix of performance, range and practicality. It looks gorgeous too.

Now, X-Tomi didn’t stop at the shooting brake rendering. He chopped off the roof, the B- and C-pillars, and then added some features that we would usually find in a convertible. With a couple of visual changes, X-Tomi managed to render the Polestar 1 convertible with an exterior that is wrapped in a midnight blue finish and an interior in black.

Would a Polestar 1 Shooting Brake work?

It was just a few days ago that Polestar officially took off the wraps from its very first production model called the Polestar 1. While this was inspired by a vintage-inspired coupe, it comes with modern technology and a powerful plug-in hybrid powertrain. At first glance, one may be reminded of the Volvo P1800. This has led to it being imagined as a shooting brake like that of the P1800ES. In fact, an artist from X-Tomi Design already made a rendering of the long-roof model as early as now.

But instead of rendering it to look like the P1800ES with a huge rear glass, it was the outgoing V90 wagon that gave X-Tomi Design the inspiration. It was designed with a higher roof that appears to give the cabin more space and comfort, while also replacing the tiny bench in the back of the standard Polestar 1 coupe.

Whether this is a coincidence or not, Volvo has actually already considered a vehicle much like the Polestar 1 shooting brake, and it was introduced back in 2014 as the Concept Estate. And three years later, it turned out to be the current V90.

BMW X7 SUV rendered as a luxurious pickup truck by X-Tomi

Mercedes-Benz commenced production of the X-Class pickup truck (2018 model year) in 2017, thereby entering the luxury pickup segment. Many expected BMW to follow suit, but until now the German premium carmaker remains unmoved for calls to make its own pickup truck. Thus, seeing a BMW pickup even in concept form would be a farfetched idea; but not with X-Tomi.

An automotive graphic designer who has released a number of amazing automotive renditions, X-Tomi has delved into a more interesting project in the guise of a BMW X7 pickup truck. All X-Tomi needed to do was to have an image of the newly unveiled BMW X7 sports utility vehicle, chopped off its rear end, and added a bed. This sounds simple, but the entire rendition process is really complicated. In the end, X-Tomi proved that a BMW pickup –as derived from an X7 SUV – does look elegant and utilitarian.

Nonetheless, X-Tomi’s rendition of a BMW X7 pickup is all hypothetical as the German luxury carmaker recently confirmed that it has no plans to go compete with Mercedes in the luxury pickup segment. Likewise, a new pickup derived from the X7 would mean it would be underpinned by a body-on-frame chassis that usually serves as the platform for pickups.

This BMW X7 M looks like the real thing from the future

Just recently, BMW introduced its much-anticipated flagship SUV -- the all-new BMW X7 – after more than four years of wait. Now that it is finally arriving, high-performance customers are wondering how many years they would have to wait before the German premium carmaker creates a BMW X7 M.

The reality is that there is yet no clear sign that BMW would create an M version of the newly unveiled X7 SUV. While the X7 M is a possibility that can’t be discount, it might be hard to imagine how the high-performance version of BMW’s flagship SUV would look like. Good thing though, an automotive graphic artist is here to help with his own rendering of the BMW X7 M.

X-Tomi Design has been known for his renderings of still non-existent versions of vehicles that are in the market or have just been unveiled. His graphic works are usually realistic, to the point that it seems that his renderings were actual official images released by carmakers. X-Tomi latest comes in form of the BMW X7 M, which would be the high-performance version of the newly unveiled X7.

Volvo’s performance brand, Polestar, is all-set to redefine the way people purchase their new vehicles. But even before it rolls out it this innovative brand and retail concept, Polestar is opening its very first showroom based on traditional network of dealerships. Its new showrooms – to be called as Polestar Spaces – will have it first brick-and-mortar location in Oslo, Norway. The Polestar Space in Oslo will commence its operations in the middle of 2019.

Thomas Ingenlath, chief executive of Polestar, called Polestar Spaces as a vital part of the brand’s customer experience, as it serves as the location where the carmaker physically meets its customers. The new Polestar Space will be found on Ovre Slottsgate in downtown Oslo, as located in a prominent retail environment along with other progressive brand stores.

Actually, the performance brand’s choice of location didn’t come as a surprise. Oslo is the capital city of Norway, where people are more likely to buy an electric vehicle instead of a conventionally powered one. Ingenlath remarked that it is logical to start the Polestar Space story in Oslo, since Norway is considered one of the most important EV markets in the world.

BMW has just unveiled the seventh generation of the BMW 3 Series, with the codename of G20, at the 2018 Paris Motor Show. Its high-performance version – the BMW M3 -- with codename of G80 – won't follow immediately, and is expected to be launched for the 2020 model year at the earliest.

The German premium carmaker may start teasing and then launch the next-gen BMW M3 as early as next year. This means that its fans and enthusiasts would have wait for at least a year before getting a good a look at the next-gen high-performance version of the BMW 3 series.

For those who can’t wait that long, the BMW M3 G80 can be previewed unofficially through a work by Aksyonov Nikita, an automotive graphic designer based in St. Petersburg, Russia. Nikita has rendered various versions of future and present vehicles, including those created by Aston Martin, BMW, Fiat, Ferrari, Lamborghini and Peugeot, as well as a lot more.

For those of you who follow news on Ferrari, we are pretty sure that you have seen the one of a kind SP38 nicknamed the “Deborah”, which simply is a 488 GTB that has gone through a number of cosmetic upgrades for it to look like a prettier coupe. But have you imagined a car like that, looking like a Spider? X-Tomi Design, and individual artist from Hungary decided to take out the car’s roof to imagine how the unique creation would look based on the 488 Spider.

The coupe’s lovely F40 inspired engine cover may be gone already, but the imaginary SP38 Spider still has everything they need to become a veritable showstopper, though there are zero chances of this to become a reality.

That’s because Ferrari has no plans of making an exact same model for another client, because the first client will probably not want a replica of his car. But instead, maybe the commissioned Deborah wants a matching Spider to go along with the Coupe. But don’t get us wrong because we are really just making up these scenarios in our minds.

Audi A6 (C8) is still quite fresh in the market but already, artists have been rendering the said model, with variants of their own. Recently, we saw a hot RS6 makeover of the sporty saloon, but now, artist Tobias Buttner gives us his take on the German luxury saloon, giving it a more rugged theme. As you could see in the photos, this is a rendering of the A6 Allroad model. Like all the Allroad models, it adopts new body cladding and a higher ride height, both in an effort to enhance off road practicality.

The standard styling cues of the standard A6 are carried over, of course, but there are also a number of unique variations to note. For instance, the grille, while still large and imposing, features vertical chrome inserts as opposed to the horizontal design found of the standard model. The accenting vents have been made more subtle, and there is a silver running board located just below the grille.

Expect the ride height to be a little higher, and there’s plastic body cladding around the wheels that assures that it will be able to take on tougher roads, without leaving the paint of the fenders scratched. The previous model is just a bit taller, with its height raised by just 3.5 centimeters (35 mm) over the standard sedan, with an available one extra centimetre (10 mm) of lift available at low speeds. Expect similar figures for the new model; that is, if Audi chooses to build it.

Mercedes-Benz has published images of the new A-Class hatchback and sedan models, together with spy shots of the B-Class, CLA, GLA and the GLB. But one thing we have not seen yet is the CLA Shooting Brake. While we’ve heard rumours that the swoopy wagon won’t be renewed, we think that the opposite is true.

In January 2017, Autocar heard from Mercedes’ sales and marketing boss, Britta Seeger, that the wagon will be getting a second generation version. There has been no retraction so we take that as a signal that we will soon see a new generation of the CLA SB. Nevertheless, we regret to say that the larger model, the CLS Shooting Brake, has been terminated due to low demand.

It is true that a lot of people have a thing for wagons, but the number of people who are shifting to crossovers and SUVs are significantly more, and really, automakers will just have to head towards the direction where their business will flourish. This is also why we should be glad that Mercedes-Benz is still giving the CLA Shooting Brake a second generation model.

Volkswagen had decided that the 2019 Touareg will not be sold in the United States market. But luckily for European customers, they will be able to acquire the German marque’s new flagship SUV. Now, it has a bold new look as well as a more high tech cabin. It will also be offered with a number of engines, like a pair of turbocharged 3.0 liter diesel options. The 2019 model is definitely an upgrade.

As you have noticed, the industry’s new trend is more focused on coupe style SUVs. Therefore, the 2019 Touareg is not immune, and is simply just part of the trend - at least in the real world. Now, rendering artist Aksyonov Nikita has reimagined the new Touareg as a sleek coupe SUV, and it looks incredible. You may have noticed that we have featured many of Nikita’s works in the past.

When looking at the rendering, you would notice that it keeps the same design elements as those of the original model - from the front fascia, which includes the matrix style LED headlights, to the more defined grille, and lower vents. The wheels are pretty new, which seemed to have been borrowed from the Arteon sedan, complemented by its teal shade. It is actually out back where most of the restyled elements can be seen.

Have you been imagining yourself driving a Polestar 1? If you have, now is the time for you to pre-order the 600 horsepower (447 kilowatt) hybrid coupe before it arrives in showrooms in 2019. A couple of days ago, the automaker decided to begin taking orders for interested buyers in exactly 18 countries including the United States, United Kingdon, China, Switzerland, Sweden, Spain, Austria, Belgium, Canada, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Poland, Portugal, Norway, the Netherlands, and Italy.

For one to get a reservation slot, a $2,500 (2,500 euros or 20,000 yen) deposit must be made, and the great thing about this is that it is refundable.

Since the Polestar 1 made its debut in the public, the company found out that around 7,000 people were interested in owning one of these, and this idea encouraged the automaker even more, according to Thomas Ingenlath, Polestar CEO. This is what motivated them to take orders this early, and soon they will be taking the next step towards delivering this beautiful car to their first batch of customers.

BMW has just unveiled the new BMW Concept M8 Gran Coupe at the 2018 Geneva Motor Show. This concept vehicle serves as the precursor model for the upcoming new BMW 8 Series Gran Coupe and the BMW M8 Gran Coupe, providing a glimpse of how these models could look like.

Nonetheless, concept models are usually more aggressive and more dramatic in terms of design compared to the production model. Thus, when BMW M8 Gran Coupe becomes a reality, it is expected to be a subtle version of the BMW Concept M8 Gran Coupe. To help us imagine how the BMW M8 Gran Coupe might actually look like when it comes to life, X-Tomi Design has created a rendering of the production model.

X-Tomi Design made sure that the rendered BMW M8 Gran Coupe doesn’t stray away too much from the BMW Concept M8 Gran Coupe in terms of exterior looks. The rendered M8 Gran Coupe by X-Tomi Design features a front end defined by a slightly taller grille.

Mercedes-Benz has not unveiled the A-Class Sedan yet, though we think that we will see it very soon because the automaker has already revealed the hatchback, and it should not be too long for the saloon to come out this year.

The Germany based automaker displayed a concept at the 2017 Shanghai Auto Show. But we have to agree that this model, in Shooting Brake guise, will be absolutely stunning. Aksyonov Nikita has already done the work for us. He released images of an A Class Shooting Brake that looks ready to enter production.

In 2017, the automaker actually made it clear that they will draw a distinct line between the A-Class sedan and the next generation CLA by giving the CLA a fastback styling. The A-Class is going to be the model the CLA will be based on, and will then use the front wheel drive platform of the A-Class, though it will adapt its own distinct style. This will then be placed above the A-Class Sedan in Mercedes’ lineup.

The 2019 BMW X4 (G02) boasts an updated exterior and tech-heavy cabin. Physically, the SUV has grown in size and is now three inches longer than its predecessor, and this means more legroom for rear passengers as well. This X4 is scheduled to be out in dealerships sometime in July, but rendering artists have already gone to work on imagining an M version of this.

The rendering artist who created the X4 M is none other than X-Tomi Design. At first glance, you will notice that the more hardcore variant gets a lot of obvious cues from the base model - including the dual kidney grille and the sloped roofline. But it also gets some added elements that make it extra unique.

Instead of the original chrome grille inserts, the BMW X4 M’s had been blacked out. The lower air vent on the grille is now larger and more defined. Each corner is accented by two smaller vents, each one embedded with LED running lights. Its entire body has been lowered to the ground, while the roof has a carbon fiber treatment finished in black - overall, making it look more aggressive.

Recently, Mercedes-Benz announced that their new compact family will have at least 8 members. That’s a lot to swallow but we never really considered the A-Class would be associated with the Maybach sub brand.

But apparently, its inclusion makes sense to one artist, and that is Aksyonov Nikita. He rendered something that he calls the Mercedes Maybach A-Class. Of course, he took inspiration from no other than other Maybachs in Mercedes’ range - and by looking at his creation, all we can say is that it looks interesting.

The most obvious element in this rendering is the paint. We think that Nikita got this shade of blue from the Mercedes-Maybach 6 Cabriolet Concept, except that it has a matte finish instead. Moreover, its front grille as well as the eye catching multi-spoke rims seem to also come from the same model.

What is the first thing that comes to mind when you see a mid-engined European sports car? Well, that depends on who you are talking to. Some will look at it as a piece of art, while others would see as an opportunity. An opportunity for what, you ask? Well, an opportunity to imagine something even greater.

In this case, it was Arian Shamil who sought to render something he called the Porsche Cayman RSR. And upon hearing that, we can’t help but think that it has a clear reference to the 911 RSR.

Yup, the 911 RSR that, without a doubt, is the fastest and most mind-blowing production 911 ever built - with a 4.0 liter naturally aspirated flat-six ahead of the rear axle. As for performance, it can chase its 9500 rpm redline like that of a 510 horsepower, race tuned flat six. This does not even have turbos that will soften throttle response.

Today, what is considered to be the best track-only Ferrari model is probably the FXX K Evo that is based on the LaFerrari. Before that model came out, the most hardcore model was the FXX K. But no matter how cool you would be to own any of these two, both of them are not road legal.

It would be the fulfilment of every car enthusiast’s wish to see the FXX K or Evo going through modifications to become road legal just like models such as the McLaren P1 GTR and Aston Martin Vulcan.

We have yet to see Ferrari confirm such a plan but an artist has already done this virtually. From Aksyonov Nikita of Behance comes a rendering of a street legal FXX K Evo. It looks very similar to the track only version. The minor differences are mostly found on the front fascia. Imagine yourself taking this Ferrari out on the road.

Supercar makers such as Ferrari, Lamborghini, and Lotus, at some point, have already stated that they would produce SUVs. While McLaren has not joined the bandwagon, it likely won’t be holding out for long if it wants to make loads of money like the rest of them. But there is another automaker that has not been mentioned a lot in this discussion of SUVs, and that is Bugatti.

For the longest time, Bugatti denied the idea of creating both a sedan and an SUV. One reason is that it is difficult to imagine an SUV with the same performance DNA found in models like the Veyron and Chiron. However, there is one artist that threw caution to the wind and imagined a Bugatti SUV that bears some Chiron design elements. Aksyonov Nikita is that artist. His rendering of the French performance SUV looks amazing and actually looks ready for the year 2020.

These photos were first published by the artist on his Behance page, before it circulated around the internet. He is also known for rendering a lot of other cool cars like a Porsche 918 Spyder among others.

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.

A vehicle with an SVR badge is considered as a special vehicle with higher levels of performance. Not all Jaguar and Land Rover vehicles have received the badge, and one of these unfortunate models is the Jaguar XF midsize luxury car (saloon and estate). But for now, people could stop dreaming about the Jaguar XF SVR. However, it is interesting to see how a Jaguar XF SVR would look like even on paper.

Thankfully, there is someone – an automotive designer named Aksyonov Nikita of St. Petersburg, Russia – who might be able satisfy that interest. After all, Nikita has already rendered an SVR version of a 2017 Jaguar XF saloon. Since it is just a rendering, this model – the 2017 Jaguar XF SVR – could only remain in the imagination of people longing for a high-performance version of the saloon. Nonetheless, the rendering by Nikita shows how the Jaguar XF SVR might look like – with more black details, a rear wing, a front lip spoiler, quad exhausts as well as other details that makes this higher performance version look sportier and faster.

Jaguar and Land Rover models that have received the SVR badge from the Special Vehicle Operations (SVO) are vehicles considered to have reached the pinnacle of performance as defined by Jaguar Land Rover and with attributes like power, handling and speed. If the Jaguar XF is to receive that badge, there is a need to justify why it has to bear the SVR name. But the sad thing is that even people at Jaguar are thinking that the XF won’t need the badge. However, it is incorrect to think that the Jaguar XF doesn’t really deserve the SVR badge; it is only that there are other vehicles in the brand’s stable that are on the priority list.
