While new cars are all about the present, concept cars are a preview to the future. Companies showcase wild designs and technologies, which one day may be available in your car as well. The Paris Motor Show this year were full of concept cars and a lot of them are quite interesting. Here are the best of the lot.
The French auto maker never misses a chance to show off its new concept vehicles. Earlier this year, the company showcased its Eolab concept at the Indian Auto Expo and at the Paris Motor show, the Renault Trezor made its debut. The Trezor was easily one of the most beautiful and futuristic concept cars showcased at the event. One of the coolest features however is the way you get in — it has a pop-up canopy roof, something like a fighter jet.
The Hyundai RN30 is a race derived variant of the i30, which comes under
the company’s performance N brand. The road-hugging car is designed for the race track and will be powered by a 2.0 litre engine, generating about 375hp, which will be transferred to all four wheels.
