Debuted at the 2014 Los Angeles Auto Show, this concept represents everything that Audi expects to sell us with its next generation of models, so the Prologue takes its name quite literally. As far as style goes, the two-door concept takes a longer-lower-wider approach, in contrast with Audi’s most successful cars. Also impressive under the hood, the twin-headed turbocharged 4.0 liter V8, with 605 hp and 553 pound-feet of torque is here to blow you away. Audi also classed up the interior of the vehicle, turning the entire dashboard into a touchscreen. The future looks bright for Audi.
Maserati Alfieri Concept
The Italian powerhouse presented us one of the most beautiful cars to hit the show circuit in 2014. This classical looking coupe will sport a 4.7 liter V8 with 460 hp, and a special exhaust system ensures that is sounds as good as it looks. Although it might also remind you of a video game concept, this beast was confirmed to be produced, we’re expecting to hear more about it in the next year.
Volvo Lounge Console Concept
Luxury transportation is the way to go according to Volvo. This concept feature removes the front passenger seat and replaces it with a console that contains a number of luxurious features, taking passenger comfort to a whole new level. Thomas Ingenlath, senior vice president of design at Volvo Car Group, said “with design innovation and modern materials we can effectively create [a] passenger experience that is unique in the premium car segment”. Even though it’s unlikely to become a common feature, you can expect Volvo to make a limited edition with this feature.
There you go! That was our list of 14 of the hottest concept cars to date. I personally can’t wait to see if some of these actually get turned into common road vehicles. My guess is no, but I’m sure some of the futuristic features in some of the vehicles will trickle down into their more common and bland brothers and sisters, at least adding a bit of spice to the common consumer vehicles.
