The Geely Starburst Concept Looks Like a Cross Between The Volvo V40 and Cadillac Lyriq
Geely itself, despite its acquisition of lotus and even owning Volvo, isn’t exactly known for making attractive cars. In fact, one could even say that Geely cars are about as dull as unsalted crackers and a glass of lemon juice. Take the Geely GE11, for example – that’s about as exciting as a Ford focus – or the Geely Mk-Cross that looks like a 90’s crossover with upgraded headlights. It did show off a concept of a new crossover coupe that looked decent until we realized it was a rip-off of the BMW X4, so I guess there’s that. The point is that Geely, isn’t exactly an interesting car maker, but that could soon change if the new Starburst Concept is any indication of what the future holds.
2021 Volkswagen Arteon Big Sur Concept
Every now and then, Volkswagen releases a random concept that showcases aftermarket mods and the potential of said model in the hands of someone willing to make some mods. Cars like the Volkswagen Golf GTE HyRacer showed us what was possible with the Golf while the Jetta GLI concept most likely gave birth to a few stunning blue Jettas on the road. There was also the Tiguan SE R-Line Black Rino Concept that somehow blended functionality with a low-rider stance. Now, Volkswagen is growing its enthusiast fleet again with the Arteon Big Sur concept.
This is the Ferrari Simoom - The SUV Ferrari Should Build Instead of the Purosangue
By now, we know that Ferrari is planning to join the performance SUV club, as it is a well-known fact that Ferrari is developing the
the first Ferrari SUV ever. It is believed that the design will be heavily influenced by the Ferrari Roma. However, Dejan Hristov – an avid graphic designer and evident car enthusiast – has shared his take on what a Ferrari SUV should look like. Meet the Ferrari Simoom, named after one of the most famous desert winds.
Building the Ultimate Hot Hatch – Volkswagen’s Mid-Engined, W-12 Golf GTI
The Volkswagen Golf has been a mainstay in VW’s lineup since the Mk1 was introduced way back in 1974. Over nearly 50 years of history the Golf hasn’t changed a lot. Sure the body has changed, and the technology has be drastically improved as you’d expect, but it’s followed the same general recipe over all these years – it’s a compact hatchback (and wagon) that can be both economical and fun, the latter of which being true if you find yourself behind the wheel of a Golf GTi or Golf R. No Golf that VW has sold to the public even comes close to the level of cool that’s exuded by the car you see here: a mid-engined Golf GTI with the heart of a Bentley Continental GT. You want the definition of hot hatch? Well, this is it.
The MG Cyberster Is Officially Heading To Production
Not long ago, we shared information about MG’s return to making exciting sports cars. The Cyberster, as they call it, is a futuristic concept, with a retro throwback. What isn’t retro is the drivetrain, as the roadster will be powered by electricity. In any case, the MG Cyberster boasts some pretty epic figures. Although we still don’t know all the details, we do know that the 0 to 62 mph (100 km/h) sprint will happen in under 3.0 seconds. In addition, you’ll be able to drive 500 miles (800 km) on a single charge – more than any other EV currently on sale.
It’s Amazing What You’ll Find In The Peterson Museum Alone At Night
The Hoonigans YouTube channel is the place to go if you are looking to see some of the most interesting and madly-modified vehicles, as well as some truly crazy stunts. This video is a bit different, however, as it takes us into the Peterson Automotive Museum. The place is home to well over 100 cars and some of the most unique ones are held in “The Vault”. These include some of the first vehicles ever made, movie cars, “001” chassis cars (the first of their kind), as well as some awesome concept cars.
2006 Mitsubishi Eclipse Ralliart - What Mitsubishi’s Sports Car Should Have Been
The Mitsubishi Eclipse was one of the most praised compact Japanese sports coupes. Sadly, the third generation of the car (2000-2005) was a letdown, compared to the success of the previous two. The fourth-generation was significantly better, but shared too many similarities with the previous model, like the lazy transversely-mounted V-6, which at least had power this time and the front-wheel-drive layout.
Although the 3.8-liter 24-valve SOHC V-6 had a decent output, everyone wanted it to be the sleeker two-door equivalent of the Lancer Evolution. This meant a 2.0-liter turbocharged inline-four and all-wheel-drive. Apparently, the specialists from Mitsubishi’s Ralliart department thought the same, which is why they got to work on making the Eclipse we all wanted. This resulted in the, introduced at the 2005 NAIAS, Mitsubishi Eclipse Ralliart Concept.
This Chevy C-10 Mixes Dark Apocalyptic Looks With Extreme Aerodynamics
The Chevy C10, know in its senior years, has become the basis for a number of crazy custom projects from low-riders to extreme off-roaders. The thing is, though, that most of the examples of modified C10s in real life all the same outside of different paintjobs. This rendering, however, depicts something that goes beyond show car status.
Want the MG Cyberster to Go Into Production? Put Your Money Where Your Mouth Is
When you think about the MG brand (if you think about it, that is), you probably don’t think about sporty cars. Cars like the MG TF Roadster or the MG6 might come to mind, and they were kind of sporty, but they were also a decade ago. There was the MG MG3 Trophy Championship Concept, but nothing tangible came from it. The Mazda knock-off that was the MG X-Motion Concept promised to bring a sporty SUV into the mix as does the Cyberster Concept, but so far, most of MG’s concepts are just that: concepts that never come to fruition. Well, that could change with the Cyberster, but it won’t happen without some…..ahem….. assistance.
Hail the 2030 Aston Martin Vigorous
Aston Martin’s first-ever SUV, the DBX, is already confirming its status as the brand’s savior. This is no surprise, though.

The Vigorous design study is here to answer that.
Check Out the Lincoln Zephyr Reflection Concept Freshly Revealed in Shanghai
Being a purist at heart, it’s hard to condone the new futuristic design philosophies that most EVs follow. There are a few exceptions once in a while, like the Nio ET7, which looks absolutely stunning. But, it looks like the ET7 now has competition in the looks department. Lincoln has somehow managed to strike a perfect balance in every aspect and has come out with this gorgeous EV called the Zephyr Reflection. Previewed at the 2021 Shanghai Auto Show, the Zephyr Reflection has got us drooling and we can’t get enough of it. Unfortunately, it won’t be coming Stateside as it is a China-exclusive model.

With the latest and greatest in gas turbine engine technology, lateral pop-out headlights, and the weirdness of twin-dial steering, the Turbo Titan III was Chevrolet’s attempt at creating the truck of the future.
