Ducati… and AMG? Yup. This unholy marriage of the performance-obsessed has resulted in this: the Ducati Diavel AMG Special Edition ($TBA). As you might expect, it scores high marks in both the aesthetic and speed departments, offering up signature AMG five-spoke wheels, carbon fiber radiator grills with aluminum trim, an AMG-style sport exhaust system, an AMG-style horizontally-ribbed seat in Alcantara, hand-set cam timing with the name of the technician engraved on the engine casing, a numbered plaque on the fuel tank, a Testastretta 11° engine, and spectacular matte black carbon fiber bodywork.

Sometimes concept cars are simply production model previews. The Ford Evos Concept ($TBA) is not one of them. This four-door, four-seat fastback operates on a lithium-ion plug-in hybrid powertrain, and apart from the strikingly sexy body and gullwing-style front and rear doors makes technology the focus, with features like a heart-rate monitoring seat, allergy-free interior, and the ability to communicate with the cloud and other wireless devices such as your cell phone, letting it perform crazy-future tasks like automatically playing the same music that you were just streaming at your house, heat or cool the interior to an ideal temperature before you get in the car by predicting when you’re going to leave based on your calendar, automatically close the garage door and turn off lights as you pull out of the driveway, and tons of other Jetsons-ish tasks that are bound to make us even lazier.

Peugeot EX1 – Concept

If the BMW 6 Series Concept was basically an early look at an upcoming production model, the Peugeot EX1 ($TBA) is the polar opposite: a wild creation that lets the car’s designers stretch their imaginations with out worrying about pesky topics like actual production cost or real-world feasibility. Still, the EX1 is every bit as intriguing, with its open-cockpit mix of car and motorcycle, it’s world-class acceleration, dual electric motors cranking out the equivalent of 340 hp, and its all-time four wheel drive. Just don’t expect it in dealerships any time soon.

Part skateboard, part Segway, part tank, the DTV Shredder ($TBA) is one of the craziest contraptions we’ve seen this year. It features a normal skateboard deck and trucks, which are mounted to a powerful motor, and two tank threads — mounted below and to the sides of the deck — capable of going over snow, sand, dirt, ice, and nearly any other non-paved surface you can think of at speeds of up to 30 mph, or plenty fast enough to give you some gnarly injuries should you happen to shred a bit too hard.

Electric vehicle technology has been around for decades and it has been stopped by the big oil companies around the world in most of their development phases by buying the company out or paying them off not to proceed.
There are some great electric cars around at the moment, however they are still around the same price as a property. I stumbled across these designs for an electric bike and got really excited!! 🙂
I hope they produce these some time in the near future. I would definitely buy one 🙂
