5 Stunning, Futuristic Concept Cars You Might Be Able to Buy Someday

carbodydesign.com

Car designers are hard at work coming up with some incredible, futuristic-looking automotive designs, some of which may be racing down your street in the years ahead.

Sports cars and spacecraft-like models tend to dominate the imaginations of the engineering students and designers envisioning our near and distant futures. Even so, we’d like to start this list off with a family car—kind of, sort of—before we jump into some of the wilder concept cars you may see in the not-so-distant future.

1. Chevrolet Stingray AeroWagon

The Chevrolet Stingray AeroWagon, which is based on the Chevrolet Corvette Stingray, just might be put into production by Callaway Cars, if enough orders are received. This incredibly sexy “family” car will have a rear hatch—just like any other station wagon—except the hatch will be made out of carbon-fiber. The car itself will be capable of reaching 200 mph, although it will still be rather economical (for a Corvette) when it comes to gas mileage. This definitely isn’t your mother’s station wagon.

2. BMW ZX-6

We might as well rocket into the future with our next entry. The BMW ZX-6 doesn’t even look like a car, at least not like anything you’ve seen outside of science-fiction movies. This “space car” is the brainchild of design students at the Istituto Europeo di Design in Turin, Italy, who worked in conjunction with BMW. The streamlined body, hidden wheels and driver’s-side and passenger seats integrated into the car’s body all make the BMW ZX-6 a daring concept vehicle. We’re sure many a future-minded car enthusiast is praying that this BMW will make it off the ground.

3. Lamborghini’s Egoista

Lamborghini makes sleek, extremely expensive, high-performance sports cars, but the Egoista is something above and beyond what Lamborghini already has on offer. This concept car—which has only a single seat—is part-racing machine, part-designer’s unadulterated dream, part-neon rocket ship and part-personal statement for a rich owner who really wants to be noticed when he or she takes it out for a drive.

4. Mercedes-Benz BIOME Concept

The Mercedes-Benz BIOME concept car is a vehicle that could one day be grown in a lab, rather than manufactured on an assembly line or in a high-tech workshop. It’s an organic, hybrid vehicle that, while not actually grown from seeds (at least not yet), could very well incorporate “grown” and “nurtured” components (bio-fiber) into its overall design. Is this car truly possible in the real world? Time, and the advance of technology, will tell.

5. 2025 Bugatti Aerolithe Concept

This Bugatti concept vehicle is a contemporary version of the original Aerolithe, which was first given its public debut decades ago. This modern take on a classic design is similar in appearance to the pre-Christopher Nolan-era Batmobile driven by the likes of Michael Keaton and George Clooney. The car’s flowing lines and aeronautical exterior might be a signal of the types of cars we can expect to drive in the future—assuming, of course, we can afford these pieces of high-tech motorized art.
