Honda Pegasus Concept

The Honda Pegasus Concept was designed by Andrus Ciprian, a Romanian designer who’s created a number of interesting concept vehicles over the past few years, it is inspired by the classic concept cars of 1950s: the GM Firebird concepts and Pontiac Firebird II which is evident in its styling.

The Honda Pegasus is a single-seat racing car which features styling inspired by some of the classic concept cars from the 1950s, namely the GM Firebird concepts – like the Pontiac Firebird II – from the late 50s. This influence can be seen in the array of wings, spoilers and air management systems which are located all around the vehicle.

To our surprise, Honda Pegasus is powered by a small gas-turbine jet engine, located at the rear, which is to give enormous thrust but the spoilers and wings of the vehicle will thwart Pegasus to take off.

The concept seems too high an imagination to enter into the production out it really presents the unique blend of classic concept cars and modern racing.

Honda FC Sport concept

Honda FC Sport concept is an extremely exotic and forward thinking sports car, the design flexibility and potential of Honda’s V Flow fuel cell technology.

Honda keeps sending the idea of a fuel cell out there to the masses, like a canary in a coal mine. Another year, another dead bird. Honda launch of a new hydrogen-powered concept car shows that Honda intends to stay a player in the high-end sports car realm, even if the S2000 is gone. The Honda FC Sport explores how to satisfy automotive performance enthusiasts in a world beyond petroleum.

The Honda FC Sport was designed to accommodate a custom-formed high-power fuel cell stack, located between the rear seats, and a battery pack placed low in the middle of the vehicle. The electric motor resides just forward of the rear axle. Two fuel storage tanks, visible from above, are located above the rear axle. Rather than propel a practical family sedan as it does in the case of the FCX Clarity, the powertrain is being used in a lightweight sports car design with an ultra-low center of gravity, powerful electric motor performance and zero-emissions.

The optimal placement of fuel cell components for performance also allows for a relatively large passenger cabin by conventional supercar standards with enough space for three seating positions. The interior layout focuses primarily on the driver with a racecar-like center driving position. The enclosed canopy opens upward from the rear to allow for entry and exit. Two rear passenger seats flank the driver’s left and right side.

The Advanced Design Studio of Honda R&D Americas, in Pasadena, California, developed the FC Sport design study with the primary objective of using existing fuel cell technology as the basis for an all-new sports car. Designer Jason Wilbur led the design efforts.

Configuration of the fuel cell stack is such that it is located between the two rear seats that flank driver’s position, while a battery pack sits low in the middle of the car. Electric motor is just ahead of the rear axle and the two fuel storage tanks just above it. The layout guarantees optimal weight distribution, a good passenger cabin (for a sports car) and an interior that focuses a lot on the center-placed driver.

Maserati Quattroporte 2030 concept

Maserati Quattroporte 2030 concept was designed by Yaroslav Chumachenko, who is a 25-year old transportation design student at the Istituto Europeo di Design in Turin, Italy.

Maserati Quattroporte 2030 concept can adopt minor design changes. It can be used as an SUV, sedan, or a rear-engine sports car. The car can change shape by using Stereolithography additive manufacturing technology, with a modular structure inspired by dinosaur skeletons. It is based on a modular platform that would allow to build a vehicle very quickly and to easily replace individual components as technology evolves.

In the safety department, the ribs will provide a sturdy structure as they are attached to the longitudinal member. As crazy as this car might be, it sure does make us wonder if these cars will ever see the light of day.

Renault DeZir

The Renault DeZir is an electric powered sports concept car  which will be showed at the 2010 Paris Motor Show. The concept is designed to a mid-engined, gullwing electric coupe.

The Renault DeZir concept features a new front-end design that previews the new front-end identity of the next Renault models. The headlights take the form of backlit prisms and the perforated ’eyelids’ add to this high-tech feel and contribute to DeZir’s specific lighting signature. Rear lighting is provided by an illuminated, seemingly floating strip and the Renault logo is highlighted by backlighting through the fins of the grille and consequently appears to hover in the middle of this space. The styling of the DeZir concept was led by Laurens van den Acker, and according to Renault it’s the first in a series of concept vehicles which will provide a glimpse of the company’s future production cars.

It is powered by a vertically mounted 24kWh rechargeable lithium-ion battery, fed to a 148bhp mid-mounted electric motor. This gives Audi e-tron-rivalling performance, with 0-60mph in only five seconds and a top speed of 112mph. Aiding the pace is a ightweight tubular steel chassis – the DeZir tips the scales at only 830kg – and a drag coefficient of only 0.25Cd. It also promises a range of 100 miles. DeZir is proof that environmental concern and a love for cars are by no means incompatible. The DeZir project is the first to have been led by Laurens van den Acker and marks the start of a sequence of concept cars that will provide an insight into Renault Design’s new vision for the future.

Rolls-Royce Apparition Concept

Rolls-Royce Apparition concept was designed by Jeremy Westerlund, who designed it as an independent project while studying at the Art Center. where you will view it you will be surprise, So maybe think that it’s not as obvious and toy-like.

The idea blends classic design elements with futuristic ones, with mahogany wheel inserts and a shape that places the chauffeur out in the open like in vintage motor carriages, with the occupants coddled inside.

The design of Rolls-Royce Apparition concept is based around the old motor carriages that had a chauffeur sitting up front, exposed to the elements, with the passengers coddled inside. Like most contemporary Rolls models, the front is utterly dominated by the prominent grille and hood ornament.

It features unique touches like real mahogany inserts in the wheels, and the imposing overall shape is long and low: the designer took his cues from sailing yachts, and even though the model is built to 1:4 scale, it’s still nearly six feet long. If such an extreme example of fantasy ever became reality, it would measure 279 inches overall – that’s over 23 feet, or about four feet longer than the Phantom. See if you can wrap your head around it in our extensive high-resolution image gallery below.

Except a Rolls Royce is nothing to play around with so we are not sure what Jeremy Westerlund was thinking when he put together this boxy contraption.
