When it comes to cars and technology, it seems as though we’re always looking toward the future. How can we not, when concept cars and the newest ideas have us all hungry for what’s next? So far for 2016, there has been a stellar turn out in terms of concept car reveals, making auto enthusiasts everywhere excited for the years to come!
Audi A3 Clubsport Quattro
Audi seems to get better looking every year, which is why nobody was surprised when their concept the A3 Clubsport turned more heads than most cars revealed this year. Not only is it gorgeous, it has a whopping 525 horsepower and 443 lb-ft of torque. It’s a seven speed wet dual clutch automatic funnel output to the wheels, with a top speed of 193 mph.
Prepare to drool a little bit. The Infiniti Q80 is Infiniti’s luxury concept, and is almost actually a production model. It’s a twin-turbocharged 3.0-liter direct-injected V-6 gasoline engine joined together with an electric motor. 550 horsepower and 553 lb-ft of torque. The kicker? Suicide rear doors that take the aesthetic appeal to a whole new level.
Kia Stinger GT4
Can you say, “wraparound windshield”? Kia certainly can, and their latest concept the Stinger GT4 boasts just that, along with vertical headlamps and a stellar performance record. This car was built with the sole purpose of being fun to drive, and has done much for bolstering Kia’s credibility in the auto enthusiast community, no question.
Lamborghini Asterion LPI 910-4
Power is the name of the game with the Lamborghini Asterion LPI 910-4, which merges past, present and future Lamborghini models. Its 602 horsepower, 5.2 liter V-10 engine is right up to par with what you might expect from presumably one of the best in the world of supercars. Fortunately, this particular concept has an integrated starter motor and generator between the engine and transmission, which serves as a bolster for throwing a little extra power to the motors mounted on the front axles. The result? A combined output measuring 897 horsepower, able to launch the car from zero to 62 mph in three seconds flat.
