Rendering: This EX8 Concept Would Put Peugeot in Competition With Aston Martin and Ferrari
These are sad days when the most exciting design studies are done, not by the manufacturers themselves, but by independent designers who are showcasing their vision of what a certain brand could make. While modern regulations ensure we will be getting fewer and fewer exciting models, a Turin-based graphic designer known as Mattia Loghero has presented his take on a French high-performance, luxury gran-tourer, dubbed the Peugeot EX8 Concept, and we already wish it was more than just a sketch.

Spend Some Time with the Mythical E31 BMW M8
You may think that the M8 name was first used in 2019 when BMW launched the M version of the current generation 8 Series, but that’s not the case at all. 30 years ago - in the early 1990s, BMW created an M8 prototype based on the E31 8-Series. The model never made it to production, and more than that, it remained a secret for nearly 20 years. In 2010, when it was finally shown to the public, the M8 E31 made waves.
The Wildcat EV Concept is Definitely Not Your Grandma’s Buick
With the Avista concept from 2016, we got to know what the then-future of Buick cars would look like. And current Buicks do loosely resemble various design aspects of the concept. Fast-forward to 2022, and we have yet another concept from the GM-owned luxury brand. It is called the Wildcat, and this time it is an EV. This concept will shape the brand’s future models, which will likely be SUVs. Buick also emphasizes the new tri-shield logo, which is now more prominent than ever.
This Mazda RX-3 Widebody Concept is JDM Restomoding Done Right
When it comes to car enthusiasts and creative content, the sky is the limit. One great example is this wide-body Mazda RX-3, created by graphic designer and CGI artist, Andrey Bayduzhiy.

Rendering: Is this the Electric Lamborghini Supercar of the Future?
Lamborghini CEO, Stephan Winkelmann confirms that 2022 will be the last year for traditional Lamborghinis as the brand takes “the last step of internal combustion engines”. However, there’s no need to be concerned because Lamborghini’s production-heavy vehicles, such as the Aventador, Huracán, and Urus, will all be plug-in hybrids by 2024. But what about the Lamborghini EV scheduled to launch in 2028? Here is an independent rendering from Wang Lei that sheds some light on what we might expect, and it seems to be far from the 2+2 two-door coupe that was previously suggested to be in the works.
The Suzuki Vision Gran Turismo Is The Hardcore Speedster You Can Only Drive In Gran Turismo 7

New Rendering Shines Light on What Aston Martin’s First EV Could Look Like
Aston Martin’s CEO, Tobias Moers, recently revealed that an all-new Aston Martin EV is scheduled to arrive by 2025. Like most automakers, Aston will take its time transitioning from internal combustion to entirely electric vehicles, but only until 2030. That first EV in 2025 will be the first major step to Aston’s all-electric future, and this independent rendering, known as the Voltage, from Diego Guerrero gives us an idea of what it could look like. Is this the right way to bid goodbye to the V-12s and V-8s for a more progressive future?
Rendering: This is the Ultimate Off-Road Lamborghini
Just like every other supercar manufacturer, Lamborghini wasn’t immune to the SUV craze. After all, SUVs are what people buy these days, and it’s these types of vehicles that will finance these brands to continue making the supercars that we adore. These vehicles also have a degree of off-road capability that, let’s be honest, will barely be used by their owners. Someone, however, tried to design a Lamborghini that is probably no good on-road but instead is one heck of a beast off-road. Enter the Lamborghini LMXX2
