The Fipofix Open 16 out on the water putting Fipofix's specially processed volcanic fiber-...

Carbon fiber has established itself as a wonder material in vehicle construction, with its mix of low weight and high strength being prized for many of the world's most advanced vehicles of land, sea and air. Austrian company Fipofix believes that it's identified a material better-suited to the high seas, saying that its specially processed volcanic fiber-based composite, more commonly known as basalt fiber, offers a better performance-price ratio than carbon fiber or fiberglass and can be recycled after use. The company is in the process of testing the material in some of the world's most extreme marine conditions.  Read More

Audi reveals the R8 e-tron at the 2015 Geneva Motor Show (Photo: C.C. Weiss/Gizmag.com)

We took a quick look at the all-new Audi R8 in our Geneva Motor Show exotic car photo gallery, but the new supercar is definitely worth a deeper dive. That's because beyond the basic styling and engineering refresh, there's an all-new R8 model: the 455-hp (340-kW) e-tron. On paper, Audi's electric sports car bests Tesla with a claimed 279.6-mile (450-km) range and performance to match. Take a look at the world's latest high-performance EV, along with the new R8 V10 models.  Read More

The Blue Freedom brings hydropower to your backpack

The all-new Blue Freedom kit offers yet another alternative to solar panels, fuel cells, muscle-powered dynamos, wind turbines, AC-charged back-up batteries and other portable power solutions. "The world's smallest hydropower plant" transforms the power of running water into phone chatting, internet browsing, music listening, GPS navigating and other mobile device activities, and it does so from a package built to fit in a backpack.  Read More

The Trefecta DRT is a high-tech e-bike built for military and civilian riding

Much like the auto market saw the rise of the supercar, the electric bicycle market is seeing the rise of the super e-bike. The super e-bike is far removed from the average electric bicycle and is essentially a motorcycle hiding inside a lighter, simpler bicycle body. The new Trefecta DRT bike doesn't even hide it that well as its military-spec aluminum frame is as much motorcycle as bicycle. That's okay, because this folding super e-bike aims to "create the game, not change it."  Read More

The Jeep Wrangler-based Red Rock Responder support vehicle

Jeep always impresses with its annual barrage of concept vehicles designed for Easter Jeep Safari. This year, it's really outdone itself. Not only has it revealed the burliest Wrangler pickup concept we've seen yet, but it also has an airy, military-look Wrangler, a surf-styled tribute to the original 1970s-era Cherokee, a Grand Cherokee overland camper, and three other interesting packages that reimagine its existing lineup.  Read More

The camouflaged prototype stretches its legs

Believe it or not, Land Rover has decided that an Evoque convertible is a thing worthy of reality, even after three full years of hindsight. At the Geneva Motor Show earlier this month, Great Britain's luxury SUV marque announced that the Range Rover Evoque Convertible is heading to the streets. Though it didn't have an updated concept car to show on its stand, it did release a rather interesting video of the Evoque Convertible prototype navigating subterranean tunnels.  Read More

Crossovers and 4x4s had a solid presence at the 2015 Geneva Motor Show, anchored by the gl...

Bentley focused its attention on revealing an all-new concept coupe at this year's Geneva Motor Show, so there was no Bentayga SUV as we thought there might be. That's not to say that utility vehicles didn't have any presence in Geneva, though. While they weren't as strong a fleet as sports cars or concept cars, crossovers and 4x4s had a solid presence anchored by the global debuts of some extremely rugged off-roaders.  Read More

The all-new Koenigsegg Regera debuts at the Geneva Motor Show (Photo: C.C. Weiss/Gizmag.co...

Don't call it a hybrid. Christian von Koenigsegg doesn't like the term or the compromises he feels it implies. So although his all-new 1,500-hp (1.11 MW) supercar is the absolute top dog in the growing market of hyper-hybrids, he refuses to refer to it as such. When your car routes 1,100 hp and 738 lb-ft (1,000 Nm) of V8 muscle through a 700-hp electric drive (there is no gearbox), you can pretty much call your car whatever the heck you want. Koenigsegg calls it the Regera and positions it as the absolute king of the road. We call it the most insane piece of supercar engineering we've ever covered.  Read More

If the Mercedes G-Wagen can go six wheels, why not the Land Rover Defender? That's the question that Kahn Design answers with an all-new Land Rover equivalent of the Mercedes G 63 AMG 6x6. The British tuning shop has revealed the "Flying Huntsman 110 WB 6x6," an absolutely maniacal Defender ready for world conquest.  Read More

In addition to being a hotbed for gorgeous, potential world record-setting supercar machinery, the Geneva Motor Show is also one of the best shows of the year for concept cars that range from "produce it now" to "not in another 1,000 years." We already took a full look at the exotic supercar line-up, now it's time to check in on the many notable concept cars revealed and displayed in Switzerland.  Read More
