10. Mercedes Benz EQG Concept
Kicking off this list is the Mercedes Benze EQG Concept.
The car is covered in futuristic lighting, including a big ‘G’ on the roof, a blue stripe down the side of the car, and of course the faux grille which comes to life at the touch of a button.
The EQG will also have one of the coolest features ever seen on a car; the 360-degree tank turn, which Mercedes is rebranding as the ‘G-Turn’.
The concept is a teaser for the EQG that will be released in 2025.

9. Mercedes Benz Vision EQXX
Sections of the new Mercedes EQXX are made using mushroom and cactus leather.
Recycled plastic bottles are used to make up parts of the doors and the floor mats are made of bamboo.
The car is super technologically advanced too, with an active aero diffuser that pops out when the car hits 50km/h.
And the roof is one big solar panel.
On the inside, the EQXX has a massive 47.5-inch display which offers the largest map navigation screen in the world.
The fully-electric sedan can do more than 1000km on a single charge.
8. Audi E-Tron A6
The Audi E-Tron A6 is fast, silent, comfortable and packed with incredible tech.
The rear LED strip is made up with hundreds of 3D triangles which light up when you turn on the car.
The car also projects a welcome message when you walk up to it, and projects turn signals onto the ground as you’re driving.
You can also play video games inside and project the game play onto a wall in front of the car.
The A6 will enter production in 2024 with an expected price tag north of $70,000.
7. Buick Wildcat EV
This two-door coupe concept has a streamlined, sleek appearance with sculpted sides.
The Buick Wildcat EV doors are called semi-swing doors and part of the roof panel pops open to make it easier for you to get in and out.
The interior was designed to appear as if it’s floating, including seats that hover above the floor.
Buick says the Wildcat is the beginning of an all-electric future for the brand, which will have a lineup of all EVs by 2030.
6. Lexus LFA Concept
The Lexus LFA is one of the most beloved supercars ever made, and now there’s an all-new electric successor in the works.
It sits on 20-inch wheels at the front and 21-inch wheels at the back, giving it a more aggressive, forward-leaning stance than its gas predecessor.
There are rumors the electrified LFA could make up to 800 hp, which is a huge jump from the 550hp made by the original.
The all-electric LFA is expected to go into production as early as 2025.
5. Cadillac Celestiq
The trunk of this Cadillac Celestiq concept opens wide to reveal a crazy modern interior defined by massive display screens.
Stretching across the entire dashboard is a huge 55-inch touchscreen display.
Then in the back, there are another two display screens on the back of the front seats.
Stretching the length of the car is a sunroof that can be personalized to each passenger.
The roof is sectioned into four parts and each can be dimmed according to each passenger’s preference.
Cadillac says the concept was designed to showcase the future of the brand.
4. Lincoln L100
This concept car from Lincoln has some of the largest suicide doors ever seen on a car before.
The six-meter-long Lincoln L100 is packed with some of the coolest tech in the industry.
The floor is made up of one big screen, the wheels show you how much charge is left, and most notably, you can drive the car with the remote.
By placing the remote on a certain destination on the map, the car will take you there.
And because the car is totally autonomous, you don’t need a driver, so all passengers can lounge together comfortably in the backseat.
3. Audi RSQ
This is the concept Audi that Will Smith drove in the movie I, Robot.
Called the Audi RSQ concept car, it was designed especially for the 2004 motion picture.
It has rear-hinged butterfly doors and wheels designed to look like spheres.
This is because, in the movie, the car drives in all directions not just forward and back.
Inside, the car has a center console made up of different colored toggles that make it look like the control board of a fighter jet.
The concept was loosely based on the Audi TT and is believed to have paved the way for the beloved Audi R8.
2. Project Maybach
This car is a collaboration between Maybach and late fashion designer Virgil Abloh.
Designed before his death, Abloh worked with Mercedes to make the two-seater battery-electric coupe.
The Project Maybach has eight spotlights, massive off-road tires, a roof rack, and a full external roll cage.
Inside, it has a giant compass on the dash and an axe, which matches the sandy-colored interior of the car.
Supercar Blondie’s Alex Hirschi was given a first look before its official launch to the public in August.
It was then featured in Drake’s music video, ‘Sticky’.
1. Hyperion XP-1
The Hyperion XP-1 runs purely on water.
It was built in California by Hyperion Motors and is the world’s first hydrogen-powered supercar.
It has two side panels that jut out of the car and move independently as you drive to maximize aerodynamics.
And the two massive doors open out like wings, making it look like some sort of futuristic spaceship.
It doesn’t just look cool either, it’s faster than almost anything else on the road.
The XP-1 can accelerate to 100km/h (60mph) in just 2.2 seconds and reach a top speed of 350 km/h (220 mph).
Inside, you’ll find an ultra-futuristic yet minimalistic cabin.
It has a massive 98-inch curved screen which serves as the dashboard and the center console.
Hyperion hasn’t revealed how much the XP-1 will cost, but considering the technology it packs and its level of performance, you’re looking at $2-3 million.
