1. Lamborghini V12 Vision Gran Turismo

Lamborghini V12 Vision Gran Turismo

Of course, this is just a concept car designed for the famous Gran Turismo game, but can you imagine driving something like the V12 Vision Gran Turismo on the streets? It has everything a Lamborghini should be: aggressive, lights – weights only 819 kilos, was designed with aerodynamics in mind, has a jet fighter-inspired cabin and develops a lot of power. The V12 Vision Gran Turismo is actually powered by the same V-12 engine we’ve seen in the Sian FKP 37. We are talking about a 6.5-liter V-12 engine combined with a 48-volt mild-hybrid system for a total output of 808 horsepower. When you add a 0 to 60 mph sprint time of just 2.8 seconds and a top speed of 217 mph, how can you not want to see this on the streets?

2. Ford Mustang Lithium

Ford Mustang Lithium

We know that Ford already has an electric version of the Mustang – aka the Mustang Mach-E, but an SUV with the Mustang name? Really Ford? What if they are going to do things the right way and actually offer an electric coupe? We know most of you do not agree with the idea of having an electric Mustang – and neither do we, but this is where the world is heading and it will really be a shame to have a name like Mustang die just because of that. Plus, the Mustang Lithium concept was able to deliver a total of 900 horsepower, so it will make for a very powerful Mustang too.

3. Toyota e-Racer Concept

Toyota e-Racer Concept

We like the Toyota e-Racer Concept just because of its futuristic looks. And let’s face it, this is where the world is heading, no? Or at least this is what all the SF movies suggest, lol! The e-Racer is a single-seater sports car, with no windshield – Toyota should probably change that if put into production – and with a very cool pair of wheels. The interior is very simple, but very technologically advanced at the same time. If Toyota will also make this an electric, autonomous car, here, you have the car you can go home from the office every day!

4. Mercedes-Benz Vision Simplex Concept

Mercedes-Benz Vision Simplex Concept

There was a time when Mercedes was building amazing looking cars. We always thought the Mercedes-Benz SSK Count Trossi is one of the most beautiful cars in the world. And so was the Mercedes 35 HP race car from 1901. In 2019 Mercedes decided to bring that design idea back, and the result – Vision Simplex Concept stole our hearts. Of course, no headlamps, no windshield is something will have to change for a production version car, but how cool will it be to drive something with transparent rims?

5. Jaguar Vision Gran Turismo

Jaguar Visiona Gran Turismo

Again a concept car designed for Gran Turismo race game, but why should we enjoy a great design only in a virtual world? The concept’s design was inspired by the legendary Jaguar XJ13 prototype but combined with current design trends we’ve seen on cars like the F-Type. But not only the exterior look caught our attention on this concept. Its drivetrain is something Jaguar should also consider putting into production. The Vision Gran Turismo is powered by three electric motors with a combined output of 1,000 horsepower and 885 pound-feet of torque. It goes from 0 to 60 mph in just 2 seconds and up to more than 200 mph.

6. Karma SC1 Vision Concept

Karma SC1 Vision Concept

Karma SC1 Vision Concept is probably one of the best looking concepts we’ve seen in 2019. Karma says it actually previews a future supercar, so fingers crossed! Its design was inspired by a classic plane – 1935 Hughes H-1 Racer aircraft but it is both smooth and clean. There is no radiator grille – meaning we are looking at an electric car – and features a long hood and butterfly doors. The interior is also close to being amazing: two digital displays, two seats and lots of technology. Of course under the hood, there is an electric motor with a rumored output of 1,500 horsepower.

7. GFG Style Kangaroo

GFG Style Kangaroo

The GFG Style Kangaroo is the weirdest SUV we’ve seen lately. We’ve seen it in person at the 2019 Geneva Motor Show where it stole everyone’s attention. What is cool about it is that even Giugiaro calls it an SUV it pretty much looks like a supercar with an all-wheel-drive system and cool butterfly doors. Maybe the least impressive thing about the Kangaroo is its drivetrain: a pair of electric motors that produce 483 horses and 501 pound-feet of torque combined. But this can be easily improved for a production version car, no?

8. Infiniti QS Inspiration Concept

INFINITI Qs Inspiration

OK, now let us ask you: if Infiniti can design cars like the QS Inspiration Concept why do we have to settle for cars like the QX80 for example? We know that a concept is only a concept, and it is a different story when it comes to production version cars, but still? Look at the front of the QS Inspiration concept and tell us why this can not be translated into the production cars? The interior is also just as impressive, with a high-tech instrument cluster and digital display, a carbon fiber dashboard, and mood cabin lighting. So come on Infiniti, do something about this!

9. Mercedes-Benz Vision EQS

Mercedes-Benz VISION EQS

We already know the EQS will make it to production – there are lots of spy shots out there suggesting a production version is on its way. But, like most of all the other Mercedes cars, the design will be completely different. We would really like to see an electric car looking like the EQS concept – rather than what we have already seen on the EQC crossover. Maybe just redesign the rear a little, but the rest, please just leave it as it is! Do not change anything about it – except of course the side mirrors which will never make it to production!

10. Jeep Gladiator JT Scrambler Concept

Jeep® Gladuatir JT Scrambler

The Gladiator is one of our favorites trucks launched lately – we are still not very sure what to think about the Cybertruck! What’s amazing about the Scrambler though is the amazing color combination and the wheels. We know that there are already people out there trying to build replicas of the Scrambler, but it will be really cool to just go to a Jeep dealer and order a Gladiator that looks just like this!
