Concept Cars

Acura Advanced Sports Car Concept
Sports an Acura-first V10 engine good for 500 horses that could trickle down to future products.
Audi Q7 V12 TDI Concept
Technically a concept, this could easily make production with its 500-horse, 738-pound-foot diesel engine.

Chevrolet Camaro Convertible Concept
GM has confirmed it will make the Camaro coupe, so it seems likely the Convertible will also be made.
Chevrolet Volt
This plug-in hybrid concept could go 640 miles before a battery recharge or fuel fill-up for its gas back-up motor.

Chrysler Nassau
This shooting-brake style hatchback is a design experiment for Chrysler and is a departure from their current look.
Ford Interceptor
Ford's possible answer to the 300C, this aggressive sedan is mildly based on the Mustang's rear-drive platform.

Honda Accord Coupe Concept
This stunning concept gives a clue to the upcoming next-generation Accord. Let's hope they don't tone it down.
Jaguar CX-F
Retro is out at Jag and this sleek, modern concept should be the basis for the next S-Type sedan.

Jeep Trailhawk
This macho off-road Jeep concept sports massive 22-inch wheels and a removable T-top roof.
Lexus LF-A
Like the Acura concept, this possible Lexus super car boasts a 500-horsepower V10.

Lincoln MKR Concept
Lincoln shows it still has a pulse with this stunning concept powered by a twin-turbo 3.5-liter V6.
Mercedes-Benz Ocean Drive
Essentially a convertible version of the V12-powered S600 sedan. A big reaction to it could lead to production.

Toyota FT-HS Hybrid Sports Concept
Toyota toys with the idea of applying its industry-leading hybrid technology to a sports car design.
Volvo XC-60 Concept
The first look at Volvo's answer to the BMW X3 and Acura RDX. It shares its platform with the Land Rover LR2.
