Supercar concepts which should been produced (Part-2)

Supercar concepts offered by the automotive manufacturers the chance to build excitement for the future of the brand. Sometimes that excitement is realized with amazing performance and an automotive legend, while other times the excitement is watered down a bit and blended into existing production vehicles.

Sometimes, they simply disappear. Here are the second part of ten supercar concepts that We thought that should been produced a long time ago as the public loved, then watched these potential supercars went nowhere without the news.

6. KIA SIDEWINDER CONCEPT
Yes, Kia. The company that makes the Rio and Optima also developed a respectable supercar concept. First shown at the 2006 LA Auto Show, the Sidewinder is a wild look at What Kia wants to build. The front looks a lot like most hypercars from 10 years ago, generic, but nice. The rear tapers to a point, with the rear suspension visible from outside the car, like a Plymouth Prowler in reverse.

The drivetrain matches the looks, as a turbine burns CNG to create electricity for the in-wheel motors. No word on power output, but the Sidewinder was supposed to be fast, light, and clean running. While some media outlets said it was production ready, in reality that was highly unlikely due to the advanced motors. Too bad, as Kia could use some excitement to elevate the brand.

7. JAGUAR B99 CONCEPT
For a hint of where Jag is going, take a good look at the B99. Created by Bertone styling firm and Jaguar design chief Ian Callum, the B 99 is a possible future entry level Jaguar. Now, this list is for supercars, but the B 99 has it covered there.

Like most modern high performance cars, this cat is a hybrid. Instead of eco-cred, it gives you tire shredding power, with combined output at 570 hp. Accessing the interior is rather easy with the sleek rear “suicide doors,” and once inside, you are greeted by plenty of genuine wood and old school metal gauges. It’s a classy touch, and let’s hope Jag keeps all of it if they build this super sedan.

8. INFINITI ESSENCE CONCEPT
2009 saw 20 years of Infiniti, and the Essence revealed their design direction. Pity it wasn’t meant for more, as this car is beautiful and could have been the Japanese answer to the Corvette. The design language borrows the best bits from Aston and Jag, but takes its own path and feels new

Beneath the long sculpted hood sits a twin turbo 3.7 liter V6. Since that “only” produces 434 horsepower, there is an electric motor to surge power up to nearly 600. The interior is better than pretty much anything below six figures, so this would likely have been a 911 fighter. Infiniti needs this car.

9. LOTUS ELAN CONCEPT
Lotus went nuts at the 2010 Paris Motor Show and displayed five concept cars based on their impressive history. Arguably the best looking and most potent of the bunch is the Elan concept. Rather than a rehash of the cute ‘60s and ‘90s-tastic sports cars,

Lotus went all out and stuffed a mid-mounted 4.0 liter supercharged V6 into a genuinely distinctive looking supercar. With 450 horsepower and an optional hybrid system, and sitting well under 3,000 lbs, this Lotus would have been a blast on any road. Production was estimated at 2013, but the extended recession and management indecision led to its cancellation. At least we still can buy the 20 year old Elise and the Toyota Sienna powered Evora, right?

10. MERCEDES-BENZ AMG VISION GRANTURISMO CONCEPT
For the 15th anniversary of the legendary Sony Playstation racing simulator, Kazunori Yamauchi, producer of GranTurismo series, requested manufacturers to send in concepts for futuristic vehicles. Some, like Chevy, went off the deep end and made cars powered by lasers and driven by a pilot in a wingsuit.

Mercedes-Benz kept it classy and real, with their AMG Vision GranTurismo. This GT car features unbelievable curves, and is one of very few vehicles that looks good in chrome paint. The stats are possible too, as it is powered by a twin turbo V8 making 585 horsepower in a chassis weighing just over 3,000 lbs..

The world would be a more interesting place with these ten supercar concepts out on the roads. Do you have a favorite on this list, or another that didn’t make the cut? Tell us about it, and why it should have gone from concept supercar to dream garage production car. (Back to previous part.*** [EKA | FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | ZERO TO 60 TIMES]
