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.
Apple Design Cues On Modern Cars? This Is Just Weird
Cars and smart devices may sound like an odd mix, but nowadays pretty much any big corporation is having a go at making cars. Some years ago Google tried it and now manufacturers like Huawei have announced their first car. We also know that Apple is working on a car and is aiming for a debut in 2024. But what happens when you take already existing cars that we know, and apply design elements, taken straight off the Apple product lineup? These five renderings answer the question.
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.
Forget The Mach-E – This Is the Electric Ford Mustang We Deserved
Remember back when Ford thought it was a good idea to slap the iconic Mach 1 name on an EV SUV? Well, it didn’t go out so well and people only stopped short of rioting in the streets, eventually prompting Ford to back pedal and switch to the name Mach E instead. The name wasn’t much better and is still referred to by some as disgracing what the Mach name stood for, but things have pretty much settled down into acceptance. But, is this really the electric Mustang that we deserved? Well, after seeing this rendering, we’re willing to bet you’ll say we deserved better.
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.
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.

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.

The Story of Turbo Titan - Chevy’s Long-Lost Gas Turbine Truck
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. But with Ford’s own Big Red promotional gas turbine truck already roaming the growing Interstate Highway system, what did Chevy bring new to the table of experimental big rigs?

2021 Toyota BZ4X BEV Concept
Toyota has revealed the bZ4X electric crossover concept. Kicking off the new ‘Beyond Zero’ series for the Japanese automaker, this concept looks to be a spiritual successor to the RAV4. More than the product itself, this reveal was all about the bZ series of vehicles, a prefix that will be used on the company’s upcoming electric vehicles. The bZ4X is based on a BEV platform that Toyota has co-developed with Subaru, and it will feature an all-wheel-drive system.
2021 Audi A6 E-Tron Concept
Audi is arguably the most active automaker that’s electrifying its lineup. Barely a few days after debuting the Q4 e-tron SUV and Sportback, the German automaker has now given us a preview of the A6 e-tron, the electric version of the luxury namesake sedan. Teased at the 2021 Auto Shanghai, the A6 e-tron concept showcases what to expect from the production version of the EV and also goes on to show that Audi is not getting rid of sedans anytime soon.
This is the Chinese Market Ford EVOS And, Probably, The Fusion In America and the Mondeo in Europe
The 2021 Auto Shanghai revealed many interesting studies, among which the Ford EVOS. There has been a steadily increasing trend of sedan models, becoming crossovers and SUVs. Although the EVOS looks like a blend of a station wagon and an SUV, it is believed that this will be the next Ford Fusion (in the US) and Ford Mondeo (Europe). The EVOS is the first Ford product, largely developed by the brand’s team in China.
Remember That Time When BMW Built An X5 With the McLaren F1’s V-12
This Is the Sedan That McLaren Unfortunately Won’t Build
Sedans have been losing popularity even since the first SUV hit the market and that decline is still ongoing today. At the same time, a sedan kind of goes against the idea of a pure-breed sports car/supercar, which is why McLaren will never build one just like it won’t build a crossover or an SUV. But what if?
1985 Buick Wildcat Concept - The Car You’ve Definitely Forgotten About
Cars of the 1980s often stand out as some of the most exaggerated and unapologetic when it comes to their styling. Most of you probably know about cars like the Ferrari Testarossa and Lamborghini Countach, which was actually conceived in the 1970s. Although these are some of the poster cars from that era, there were many other interesting designs that never made it to production. In 1985, Buick decided to show us what their interpretation of a mid-engine supercar would look like. This endeavor spawned the 1985 Buick Wildcat Concept, which was undeservingly forgotten, like many others.
