Lexus LF-LC Concept

lex.jpg

While concept cars have become a bit tamer and tamer over the years, Lexus has pushed forward with wild concepts that take bold risks in design while giving us a good idea of what's to come from Toyota's luxurious sibling. The company's signature spindle grille is in full-effect here with a striking front fascia that looks like its ripping through the space-time continuum.

The striking lines make its way through the body and down to the unique 20-inch wheel design. The 2+2 also takes the roadster idea into the modern day with a completely roof-less design and a stunning golden yellow paint that is created in a multi-layer process and really brings out the contours of the concept's exterior.

Better watch out BMW, Detroit has a new fighter entering the ring and it's one of the scrappiest pieces of hardware to ever come out of Cadillac's production facilities. The ATS-V is powered by a 3.6L V6 that puts down 455-hp, 445 lb-ft of torque, and a mind-numbingly fast 0-60 time of 3.9 seconds. Top speed? Just a little under 190 mph.

Arriving next spring, the car will be available in two and four-door models and will come with a six speed manual or an eight-speed paddle shift transmission. It will also include Brembo brakes, the third-generation of their magnetic ride control, and an imposing stance with its wider front and rear footprint.

Bentley Grand Convertible

Bentley's Grand Convertible marks a return to the big and bold drop-tops that have been a key piece in the brand's DNA for decades and decades. The two-door yacht reinterprets the styling that debuted in the Mulsanne and creates a new icon of British muscle, powered by a 530-hp V8 and a massive 811 lb-ft of torque from their 6¾-litre twin-turbo which is also from its four-door sibling.

The interior also displays a master class in leathermaking with 14 naturally tanned hides that are diamond quilted, Bentley's signature pattern, and wraps around the four-seat interior. Bentley is awaiting customer response to the car and if released, will be available in a limited run of vehicles.

2015 Ford Shelby GT350 Mustang

One of the baddest pony cars is back in action and definitely worthy of the Shelby nameplate. The new 2015 Shelby GT350 Mustang is built-on the next-generation platform and is powered by a high-revving 5.2L V8 that puts down 500 hp making it the most powerful, naturally aspirated engine that Ford currently has in production.

Track-tuned, the new GT350 is ready for anything with 400 lb-ft of torque, a six-speed transmission, and a dynamic suspension that uses "MagneRide" dampers that actively reads the road and optimizes handling and responsiveness. Aluminum throughout the car further enhances the sporting qualities of the car and wider fenders and a wider track gives the GT350 the that imposing, musclecar presence you can only get from a Mustang.

AEV and Filson are back at it again following up their incredible Brute collaboration with their AEV Filson Edition Wrangler. Just like the previous model, the Wrangler is covered in Filson green and if you know anything about American Expedition Vehicles then you know this is not your average grocery-hauling Jeep.

The souped up SUV will feature a 3-1/2" DualSport SC suspension, 35" BFGoodrich Mud-Terrain KM2 tires, and a heat reduction hood. You'll also get a ProCal module, jack base, and the option of a 5.7L or 6.4L HEMI V8 engine. Of course, no Filson edition Wrangler would be complete without a trunk full of gear. Each truck will get a customized Medium Duffle, Original Briefcase, and snap-closure seat back pockets. The limited edition AEV Filson Wrangler will start at $70,400 and tops out at $100,300.

Jaguar AWD F-Type R

There is absolutely nothing wrong with the F-Type Coupe in its current form, the rear-wheel-drive monster has already put a smile on more than a handful of enthusiast's faces and now the angry two seater can attack sketchy weather and road conditions with a new all-wheel-drive package.

Available in their top-of-the-line R model which packs a 550 hp V8, the car can hit the limited 186 mph top speed like the RWD model, but can now reach a sub 4 second 0-60 time of 3.9 seconds. Look for the AWD F-Type R in showrooms next year.

2015 Porsche Cayenne GTS

Thought it may not be the first choice for purists, the Cayenne has come a long way from its controversial beginnings which has now spawned a laundry list of competitors who are chomping at the bit to take away their title. Porsche is answering the competition with a new version of their Cayenne GTS, their low and mean high-performance SUV which ditches the big V8 for a more efficient 3.6L twin-turbo V6.

Just because it's missing a couple cylinders, doesn't mean they've compromised on performance. The new GTS has 440 hp that will get it from 0-60 in 5.2 seconds and help it reach a top speed of 163 mph. You also get large air intakes, 20-inch RS Spyder-style wheels, sport exhausts, and darkened rear and front lighting.

If you've ever had the chance to hear a F-Type in person, you know how exactly how demonic that car can sound. The 550 hp V8 model is one of the angriest coupes to ever wear the Jaguar badge, but Hennessey Performance though they could squeeze a little more juice out of it and has unveiled a HPE600 upgrade kit that turns this angry little demon into Satan himself.

Available for the 2014-2015 V8 R Coupe, the HPE600 upgrade brings 623 hp to the table, 568 lb-ft of torque, and a 0-60 time of 3.5 seconds. The upgrade is also available for R models that are powered by the 5.0L Supercharged V8 and is available as of today.
