Italdesign gets modular and electric with GTZero concept

Italdesign Giugiaro has had a very nice string of Geneva show cars – last year's GEA autonomous concept was preceded by 2014's Clipper electric MPV, which came a year after the 2013 Parcour off-road sports coupe (which gave way to the Audi Nanuk Quattro later that year). After that intriguing, diverse trio, Italdesign could have taken Geneva 2016 off without a word of criticism. But instead, the Italian design house once again debuted one of the more interesting concepts of the show. The all-new GTZero is Italdesign's vision of a modular, all-electric grand tourer packed with innovation.

Singapore’s first home-grown hypercar: The 1500-horsepower, all-electric Dendrobium

Singapore's first home-grown hypercar is in development by a new company called Vanda Electric. The Dendrobium, named for a Singaporean orchid, is an ambitious project that's projected to make some 1,500 horsepower, 4,000 Nm of torque and a blistering 0-100 km/h time around 2.6 seconds. With the Williams Advanced Engineering team on board and some SG$10 million in capital behind it, it looks likely that we'll get our first glimpse of a full-sized prototype in Geneva in 2017.Read More

Rimac's 1088-hp Concept_One hypercar is finally more than a concept

When the Concept_One was first revealed back in 2011, the all-electric vehicle's spec sheet was hard to believe. Despite this, Rimac Automobili said it was aiming to deliver a limited production run in 2013, and even opened its order book in 2012. Better late than never, the Concept-One is not just a concept anymore, with Rimac set to unveil a production version of the car at the Geneva Motor Show next month.Read More
