4Mazda LM55 Vision Gran Turismo reshapes a winning form [w/video]

Mazda is the latest automaker to design something racy just for the virtual world of Gran Turismo, reviving the spirit of the legendary 787B with a KODO twist.

19Infiniti's Vision for Gran Turismo revealed in full [w/video]

Just about any car has to be designed with some sort of limitations, whether it's a production car that has to be usable on the road, a racecar that has to comply with regulations, or even a concept car that does, at the end of the day, actually need to be crafted out of real materials and wheeled onto a stage. But the Vision Gran Turismo series imposes no such limitations. Designed only for a virtual reality, the project allows for designers to craft a purely fantastical design whose limits fal

18Lamborghini Asterion could still see showrooms

At the 2014 Paris Motor Show, Lamborghini CEO Stephan Winkelmann told Maxim after the introduction of the stunning Asterion hybrid, "I strongly believe that this is not a car that will be in production, and we will not do it." However, the Asterion concept came more than a year after Winklemann told that same magazine, at the 2013 Geneva Motor Show, that "Lamborghini was not interested in hybrids." He repeated the sentiment in Paris, saying, "We're still not interested."

18James Bond Spectre villain to drive never-was Jaguar C-X75 supercar

James Bond is used to being outgunned. Often working alone, 007 has developed a knack for taking out major criminal syndicates and terrorists despite this routine disadvantage. But in his latest film, Spectre, we suspect Mr. Bond will have met his match in at least one regard – the car being driven by his nemesis, Franz Oberhauser, played by Christoph Waltz.

20BMW to show car that can park itself in a multi-story garage at CES

Automatic parking systems are something of a novelty, in their present form. Sure, modern parallel parking systems work well enough. And they're great if you lack the special awareness required to complete such a task. But frankly, how often is the average owner of such a system in a position to use it? Perpendicular parking systems, meanwhile, are basically an admission that you don't really deserve a driver's license.

9Edag planning this lightweight backlit-fabric sports car for Geneva

At the Geneva Motor Show this year EDAG Engineering showed off its Genesis Cockpit concept. Built with a 3D printing technique called "fused deposition modeling," it was a skeletal passenger cell suspended inside a protective shell. At next year's Geneva show EDAG will present another take on the natural forms combined with 3D printing with its Light Cocoon concept (click the image to enlarge).

83Chevy working on production Impala Midnight Edition

To put together the Impala Blackout concept for SEMA, Chevrolet didn't need to go much further than its accessories catalog. The in-house connection is what could make it possible for Chevy to get a production version of the Blackout into dealers this model year, with its few bits of chrome trim and dark detailing on the 19-inch aluminum wheels set into an abyss of gloss black paint, black Bowtie, grille surround, rear spoiler and mirror caps. The interior is black leather, with stainless steel

20Infiniti Q60 Concept a shadowy vision of future coupe

Until now, the Infiniti Q60 has been one of the brand's holdovers from its old naming scheme and previous design ethos, as a rebadged G37 Coupe. Those times are coming to an end though, because we are getting our first glimpse at a Detroit Auto Show-bound concept that previews the next-gen two-door.

14VW readying two-row CUV concept for Detroit

We're likely getting yet another glimpse of Volkswagen's future crossover at the upcoming 2015 North American International Auto Show in Detroit, in January. According to Automotive News, two anonymous sources within the automaker indicate a CUV concept will be shown there. The concept is said to be a five-passenger preview of the brand's future seven-seat model.

20Akrapovic Full Moon concept motorcycle is out of this world

Akrapovič (pronounced a-CROP-o-vitch) makes car exhaust systems for everything from the Volkswagen Golf to the Audi R18 E-Tron quattro endurance racer. The Slovenian company also does motorcycle exhausts and has gotten into custom bikes to show off its work. Three years ago it debuted the Morsus (inset), a fluid assemblage of carbon fiber and steel with two large wheels at either end. At the Bad Salzuflen Custom Bike Show in Germany Akrapovič showed off the next evolution, the Full Moon motorcyc

6Gray Design Sidewinder is a 600-hp big-block sand blaster [w/video]

With BMW popularizing a new form of slant-backed crossover and the likes of Lamborghini and Maserati working on crossovers of their own, the line between the sports car and the SUV is getting blurrier all the time. But this... this is something else. It's called the Sidewinder, and it's the work of one of our favorite independent daydreamers – Eduard Gray of Gray Design. It looks something like a Local Motors Rallyfighter or McRae Enduro, only, well, more so.

5Infiniti previews its own Vision Gran Turismo

Every automaker and its parent company is lining up to design its own set of wheels for the GT6 as part of the Vision Gran Turismo program, and this latest one comes from Infiniti.

3Rinspeed previews Budii concept ahead of Geneva show

Every year Frank Rinderknecht and his team at Rinspeed come to the Geneva Motor Show with another fantastical concept car, and next year's will be no exception. Though the show may still be several months away, the Swiss outfit is already giving us a glimpse of what to expect.

26Harley-Davidson Livewire electric bike would cost $50k if made today

Harley-Davidson President and COO Matt Levatich rode into the Wisconsin Sustainable Business Council's yearly confab on a Project LiveWire – that's the un-Harley electric motorcycle concept, its loudest noise coming from riders singing its praises and shocked onlookers reappraising the brand. While we know that the LiveWire is still being developed, Levatich's comments at the event suggest it's one of those good things which we're going to have to wait a long time for.

10No, Eminem is not giving away the Cadillac Ciel concept, Facebookers

Damn it, Facebook people, stop being so gullible. When you see something on social media that requires you to share or like a status or page in exchange for a chance at winning something, it's almost always a hoax. This goes for iPads, or Bill Gates giving away cash or, yes, an Eminem fan page giving away a Cadillac Ciel. Now, normally we'd simply ignore this utter hogwash, but it's getting some traction on Facebook and, annoyingly, is beginning to clog our newsfeed.

4Skoda reveals new Fabia R5 rally concept in Essen

A few months ago, Škoda revealed its all-new Fabia, a model that will undoubtedly be a vital product for the Czech automaker, yet it hardly registered on our scale of the most exciting debuts at the Paris Motor Show this year. But this... this is more like it.

12GM Futurliner No. 10 gains National Historic Vehicle Register status, finds home

We couldn't even begin to count all the concept cars that General Motors has made over the years, but what we do know is that few have carried the kind of legend that the Futurliners have. Of the dozen such buses GM made, No. 10 (similar to the one pictured here) has arguably had the most colored history, but now it's finally getting the recognition it so richly deserves.
