Japanese Concept Cars 1957-2009

Japanese Concept Cars 1957-2009

Pink Tentacle posted a gallery of Japanese concept cars from 1957 to 2009. Despite the weird doors, we like the 50s to 80s cars the most. The 90s on the other hand were the dark ages of concept cars.

Rough Crafts Iron Guerilla

A 2009 Harley-Davidson Sportster Iron 883 turned into a beast so bad ass it should have co-starred in The Expendables. Almost all of its parts have been replaced but it remains faithful to the original look.

Jaguar C-X75 Concept

It has 780bhp under the hood. It goes from 0-62mph in 3.4s, with a top speed of 200mph. It’s an electric car, albeit driven by a gas-turbine. Most of all, as Clarkson would say, it’s a Jaaaag.

This gyrocopter will reach speeds of up to 253mph, using 15 blades to propel its occupants through the air. There’s two wing-mounted turboprops to boost its regular rotor. Jump to 6:00 for the juicy bits.

Viper Burnout

Viper Burnout

The current gen Viper is officially obsolete, but it’s still a sight to behold, even when it’s just revving up and burning rubber. Add operatic music and run it in slow motion and you’ve got a winner.

2011 Ferrari SA Aptera

2011 Ferrari SA Aptera

Looking very much like a convertible version of the 599, the SA Aptera is perfect for a sunny day outing, but don’t let its leisurely style fool you. It’s got a 611-hp V12 and goes 0-to-60 in 3.1 secs.
