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.
Fashion Designer Paul Smith Went Tree-Hugger Green on this Blue 1998 Mini Cooper
For those of you who are more into fashion than cars, Sir Paul Smith needs no presentation. For the rest, Paul Smith is a British fashion designer mainly specialized in men’s clothing. His relationship with Mini started back in 1999 and the relationship has continued very successfully ever since. Last year, he designed the Mini Strip - a simplified version of the famous hatch that has its debut at the 2021 IAA Motor Show.
This year, Sir Paul Smith is back with another cool creation. His new project is based on a 1998 Mini and was presented at the Salone Del Mobile 2022 in Milan. The model also pays tribute to the past and it is a reminder of the 1998 MINI Paul Smith Edition that is limited to 1,800 units.

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.

Video: Supercar Blondie Checks Out the World’s Only Off-Road Mercedes-Maybach
Back in December 2021, Mercedes announced the first details on the Project Maybach - a unique concept car designed in collaboration with Virgil Abloh. The debut came less than a month after Virgil Abloh’s death, so the details on the concept were very limited. More details on the concept were revealed at the beginning of May 2022, during the latest Design Essentials event, but nothing too in-depth. And this is where Supercar Blondie comes to the rescue with a super-detailed video!
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.

This MOPAR of the Future is as Apocalyptic and Scary as it is Cool
Mopar is known for being the parts provider for Chrylser, Jeep, Dodge, and Ram vehicles. Some of their recent projects include the 2022 Dodge Durango Mopar Edition, which is mostly an aesthetic and handling upgrade for their midsize SUV.

The vehicle is called the Mopar Cargo Racer, and it’s an electric off-roader whose goal is to be the fastest cargo-hauling machine out there. Its design looks radical and out of this world.
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

How PlayStation’s Gran Turismo Changed The Future of Aston Martin
Aston Martin has made a name for itself by producing some of the most amazing sports cars in the world and, believe it or not, a mid-engined Aston Martin was once about as alien as the original thought of an Aston Martin SUV, which is now known as the DBX. But, while the DBX came to life due to market trends and demand, Aston’s entire mid-engined future came to life because of a digital concept for a video game. I’m talking about the Aston Martin DP-100 and PlayStation’s Gran Turismo racing game.
Audi Urbansphere Concept Gives Us A Glimpse At The Future Of Urban Mobility
This Hummer EV Coupe Would Be An Ideal Competitor To The Ford Bronco And Land Rover Defender
The GMC Hummer EV is one of the most bonkers EV pickup trucks to come out in recent times. With up to 1,014 horsepower and 1,200 pound-feet (1,627 Nm) of torque, it does away with the 0 to 60 mph (97 km/h) sprint in around 3.0 seconds, despite weighing in at 9,046 pounds (4,103 kg). That said, a graphic designer that goes by jlord8 has given us his take on a short version of the rugged EV pickup truck, and we really think GM should make one.
