Very brilliant and innovative design. The emblems looks good when it glows. I like the styling mesh on the rims, it’s so cool.

I think this one is fine, but I have to agree with Rico. Its platform design made it
look heavy and bulky even though it is made of light materials. Anyway, I like its lavender color.

This Prius is a customize hybrid models. Means to say that the engine of this car are belong to the best and trusted quality in pertaining to its speed performance. Continue in exploring new concept with a best quality of engine.

I don’t get the point if why does its exhaust needs to be that bid, very confusing! Anyway, I’m so impressed with the other features that this concept had, but I wonder if what is the engine specification of it?

The platform design is quite impressive, but it seems heavy and bulky for me but anyway, is it a sports car? If it is, I just hope that they use a powerful and impressive engine on this concept.

C&A Custom Concept Toyota Prius is actually pretty cool. That may be hard to believe, but what if we told you almost the entire body of the car was crafted of light weight carbon fiber.
