2021 promises to be an exciting year in the motoring world. With more and more manufacturers joining the EV (electric vehicle) market, there are some fascinating and beautiful prototypes.
Concept cars often look different by the time they reach mass production. But they are a chance for manufacturers to show off their creative abilities and give us a taste of the future.
If you’re interested in the future of driving, read on to take a look at some of the most exciting prototype cars which give us an idea of what driving may look like in years to come!
Alfa Romeo GTV
When the Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio was updated in 2020, it received rave reviews. The sporty four-door saloon ticked all the boxes but left some motor enthusiasts wanting.
For those who don’t need a four-door car and want something even sleeker than the already gorgeous Giulia, there’s good news! 2021 promises the GTV—a two-door coupé version of the 505hp beast.
Audi e-tron GT
Movie fans with a keen eye might have spotted Tony Stark driving one of these in Avengers: Endgame, and the exciting news for us is that Iron Man’s car will be available to buy in 2021.
The e-tron is Audi’s first foray into the full EV market, and the GT will be a welcome addition. Tesla rules the roost when it comes to performance electric vehicles, but the e-tron GT will certainly mount a serious challenge.
A claimed 590hp twin electric motor and 0-60mph time of 3.5 seconds will get the mouths watering for those who want an EV with a real punch.
Cadillac CT5-V Blackwing
At the other end of the scale from the environmentally friendly EV cars, is the CT5-V Blackwing. This gas-guzzling beast will feature a 6.2L supercharged V8 engine, which puts it up against the top-performing models from German giants Audi, BMW, and Mercedes.
This engine will likely produce up to 650hp, and with it being a sedan, it ticks all the boxes for someone who wants both power and practicality.
Maserati has become somewhat of a forgotten name in recent years, due to their apparent lack of desire to maintain relevance beyond the super-exclusive and pricey MC12.
This mid-engined speedster will boast a 630hp twin-turbo V6 engine and there is word that an all-electric version will be available in the future. This will surely help put Maserati back on the map.
Mercedes-Benz Vision AVTR
It’s not a concept car list without an out-there feat of prototyping manufacturing, and they don’t come much more space-age than the Vision AVTR!
The likelihood is that if this car ever makes it to the road, it won’t look much like this—prototypes and concepts are designed to give us a taste of the future.
Some of the futuristic technology includes an interior that can sense your pulse and breathing and wheels which can turn in any direction!
Prototype Cars to Get Your Pulse Racing
There really is something for everyone at motor shows. Concept cars, practical but stylish solutions for families, and the downright wild prototype cars that we know might never see the light of day. But the idea of these cars gets us excited for what is to come in the motoring world.
