Carlsson SL CK63 RS

Carlsson SL CK63 RS

All show and all go: Carlsson’s SL CK63 RS doesn’t just look hot in a matte black, but shaves off four-tenths to go 0-62 in only 4.1s; she’ll take you up to 202 mph if you ask politely.

Jaguar XE Supercar

Jaguar XE Supercar

The render above isn’t official, but Auto Express believes the XJ220 will be reborn as Jaguar’s XE; the supercar will compete with Audi’s R8 packing both a 5.0L V8 and an aluminum chassis.

Vespa GTS 300 Super

Vespa GTS 300 Super

Vespas have never had much sex appeal, but the Italian gas sipper is releasing its most powerful model ever: the GTS 300 Super tops out at 80 mph while getting 70 miles per gallon.

Bergmonch Folding Bike

Bergmonch Folding Bike

We’ve seen several folding bicycles, but the Bergmonch is the first to fold into a functional backpack; at only 9.5 kilograms, it can be lugged around like a conventional bag.

CORE Concept Bike

CORE Concept Bike

Similar to the Confederate Fighter, Victory Motorcycle’s CORE concept bike sits on a swoopy cast aluminum frame to keep weight down; even the 1731cc V-Twin is left exposed.

Metisse Desert Racer

Metisse Desert Racer

Although long passed, “The King of Cool” aka Steve McQueen’s legacy lives on; his estate has authorized this Metisse Desert Racer replica, used in the POW-classic The Great Escape.

SwissBike TX Commuter

SwissBike TX Commuter

With a vibration dampening suspension, semi-slick tires and a double-tube aluminum frame, SwissBike’s TX Commuter is great for city slickers; it folds up to 36″x28″x12″ in under 30 seconds.

Hurst Dodge Viper

Hurst Dodge Viper

The Hurst Dodge Viper comes with few performance mods, but we dig the black chrome polished wheels, grippy Katzkin leather-wrapped seats and gorgeous matte gold paint job.

Racer X BMW RZ-M6

Racer X BMW RZ-M6

Racer X Design’s BMW RZ-M6 is the way the 6-series should have been; it borrows heavily from American musclecars, but we ain’t complaining: this baby’s body panels are smokin’.

Honda Fury Motorcycle

Honda Fury Motorcycle

Although a little late to the Chopper party, the Honda Fury is worth a look with a 1300cc liquid-cooled V-Twin, tucked-in radiator, hidden rear monoshock and unusual use of a shaft drive.

Subaru Legacy Concept

Subaru Legacy Concept

Subaru’s Legacy has never inspired much pulse pounding in terms of looks, but their latest concept is more aggressive–in a bulgy, shiny way; it’ll be powered by a 3.6L V6 and AWD.

Cadillac Presidential Limo

Cadillac Presidential Limo

We’ve never been fans Cadillac’s boxy, DTS-style headlights, but we’ll be seeing them a whole lot more: above is the new Presidential Limo, to be christened at the Jan. 20 Inauguration.

Fisker Karma S

Fisker Karma S

Now that we’ve already seen the Karma, Fisker’s folding hardtop Karma S should come as no surprise; still, as the world’s first plug-in hardtop convertible it’s both sexy and green.

Concept: Chrysler 200C

Concept: Chrysler 200C

We have a feeling if Chrysler delivered more cars like its 200C EV concept, they’d be in better financial straits; it’ll be powered by an extended range ENVI powertrain or a Phoenix V6.

Scuderia Ferrari F60

Scuderia Ferrari F60

The Scuderia Ferrari F60 is an update on the traditional F1 racer, with a bigger front wing and smaller rear aerofoil; it’ll also have slick tires and a Kinetic Energy Recovery System.

Lexus HS 250h

Lexus HS 250h

While it looks a bit too Corolla-ish for our tastes, Lexus’ HS 250h targets Prius lookie-loos with upscale tastes; it’ll be powered by a 2.4L four cylinder with 187 hp and a CVT transmission.

Audi Sportback Concept

Audi Sportback Concept

Larger than the A6, details are scant on Audi’s Sportback; what we do know is that this lithe four door coupe concept is the basis for a 2010 production model that’ll be called the A7.

2010 MB E-Class

2010 MB E-Class

Its brochure pics have already been leaked, but the 2010 Mercedes Benz E-Class has been officially revealed: it sports a more masculine fascia along with better fuel economy.

Volkswagen Bluesport

Volkswagen Bluesport

It’s usually no fun being green, but VW’s sporty Bluesport concept does away with such notions; its 2.0L turbodiesel not only gets 180hp and 260 lb-ft of torque but 57 mpg in Eco mode.

Concept: Cadillac Converj

Concept: Cadillac Converj

We’d be all over Cadillac’s Converj concept even without its electric motor; this swoopy 2+2 goes 40 miles on a charge but also gets a backup flex-fuel motor good for hundreds of miles.

Video: VW Golf x Matrix

Cloning is apparently the secret to German efficiency, or so goes the VW Golf x Matrix commercial above; it’s supposedly so violent that UK TV viewers can’t watch it before 9 pm.

2010 Jaguar XFR

2010 Jaguar XFR

Designed to go toe-to-toe with M5s and RS6s, the 2010 Jaguar XFR not only looks sweet with a new body kit, but gets a supercharged 5.0L V8 with 510 bhp and 460 lb-ft. of torque.

Hennessey HPE700 Camaro

Hennessey HPE700 Camaro

The 2010 Chevy Camaro goes from musclecar to supercar with Hennessey’s HPE700; they drop in a Corvette’s supercharged LS9 V8 to crank out 705hp and 717 lb-ft. torque.

Nissan GT-R SpecV

Nissan GT-R SpecV

Nissan’s long-awaited uber-GT-R is here: the Spec V is a street-legal vehicle with carbon fiber weight-saving mods, Recaro buckets and a high gear boost controller for more torque.

Video: Icon A5

Video: Icon A5

While we’ve previously featured Kirk Hawkin’s Icon A5, Wired has an short but sweet video interview up with some great panning and in-flight shots; note: 15 second ad pre-roll.

KTM Concept Vehicles

KTM Concept Vehicles

Designed by six industrial design students at FH Joanneum University, these KTM Concept Vehicles posit everything from hydrofoil boats to a turbine-propelled flight vehicle.
