A Balm for Boring Contemporary Cars: 14 Fun & Stylish Modern Vehicle Designs

Terzo Millennio Electric Sports Car by Lamborghini & MIT

Created in collaboration with the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), Lamborghini’s new Terzo Millennio concept envisions a future of electric super sports cars with super capacitors to regenerate kinetic energy, using structural electric energy as a rechargeable battery. It’s made of ultra lightweight nano materials that can ‘self-heal,’ with the vehicle detecting cracks and damages and fixing them through micro channels filled with patching material.

Rezvani Tank: The SUV of the Future

You know how most SUVs look like slightly inflated station wagons these days, their profiles softened from the blockier designs of the ‘80s and ‘90s? Rezvani aims to take sports utility design in a new direction with its Tank, a ‘tactical urban vehicle’ with a host of military-style survival features like night vision, bulletproof glass, kevlar armor, and thermal cameras. It also boasts gigantic tires, a high ground clearance and Fox Racing’s remote reservoir suspension.

AUDI Aicon Autonomous Car

AUDI’s Aicon concept is an autonomous all-electric luxury vehicle that can travel up to 500 miles on a single charge, with an interior totally free of pedals, steering wheels and other driver controls. The design focuses on uninterrupted lines for a spacious feel.

6 Nissans Inspired by Star Wars

Classics, these are definitely not. They’re not even practical. But Nissan’s collaboration with Lucasfilm and Industrial Light & Magic is definitely… different. The ad campaign transforms some of the carmaker’s best-selling models into Star Wars-themed concept cars. Created for the release of The Last Jedi, each of the six vehicles was developed by an artist from Lucasfilm, with graphics, sound equipment and a bunch of random spaceship-style stuff stuck to the exteriors. While they’re not exactly going to advance automobile design and technology into the future, at least they’re not boring.
