Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG
The Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG is the ideal 2-seater luxury with that futuristic feel we’ve all been craving since 2000 hit. The SLS AMG slightly resembles a modern day Delorean, yes, but instead of time travel, it comes compromised with other technologies that are newfound to existence. The “super light” sports car is described by AMG as the “the world’s most powerful naturally aspirated production series engine ever produced” and has won countless design awards, including the 2012 AUTO BILD Design Award as “Europe’s Most Attractive Car.”
Lamborghini Aventador LP700-4
The futuristic Lamborghini Aventador LP700-4 is a hot commodity and only the luckiest, wealthiest drivers can afford such a vehicle. It’s an upgrade from the company’s previous models, including the decade-old Murciélago, and so far, only 5,000 of these babies have been built since March 2016. The Aventador’s shape is borrowed from the Estoque concept car and boasts a 6.5-liter V12 engine. Impressively, the sports car has a top speed of 230 miles per hour and has a crazy base price of $440,000.
Ferrari F430 Spider
The Ferrari F430 Spider may have been around the block a few times but it’s still highly regarded as one of the most up to date, futuristic models on the road. The sports coupe is a favorite among drivers because of its bubble design, which surprisingly, never seems to go out of style. The body is built with the same aerodynamic simulation used for Formula 1 racing cars and can accelerate to 62 miles per hour in only 3.6 seconds. Because of its age you can find the car with a price tag of around $200,000.
The Acura NSX is, if you don’t mind us saying, a very sexy looking car from the future. The concept car has a wide front-end and takes a shapely. almost exotic form. The car isn’t just good-looking – it knows how to perform. With 573 horsepower, which mostly derives from three electric motors, it helps improve acceleration and enhances overall performance. The car is a bit costly, however, at a staggering $150,000 to start. But the beauty of such a fine piece of work is that ultimately, you get what you pay for.
1956 Oldsmobile Golden Rocket
This 1956 Oldsmobile Golden Rocket is a gift from the past that has shown us the future. The 1956 Oldsmobile Golden Rocket was debuted at the 1956 GM Motorama.after spending its birth years as a concept car. It was designed to look like a crossover between the 50’s style fighter jets and a futuristic space ship and you know what? The automobile’s developers succeeded. The vintage collectible can easily be driven around but for those who choose to pay the whopping $100,000 for it, it’s better off protected in the garage.
Mercedes Benz SLR McLaren Stirling Moss
As usual, the Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren Stirling Moss smooth, sleek, and stylish in silver. In three seconds flat, the Stirling Moss can accelerate from 0 to 62 miles per hour and has a top speed of 217 miles per hour. This car may look like it’s straight out of the future but it was actually created sometime during the 1950’s. It was first driven Sir Stirling Moss, hence the namesake on the automobile today. The car itself is expensive. So, if you have $1 million lying around, why not put it to good use?
The GM ETV, which stands for General Motors Extra Terrestrial Vehicle, looks like a genuine, futuristic hovercraft for the road. It sells for the hefty price of $85,000 and if you ask, seems to be worth the rather large expenditure. The vehicle is said to emulate the motion of gliding through the air and believe it or not, is created with Chevy Aveo or a Porsche Boxter as the foudnation, donor car. It is entirely possible to create the ETV on your own but it’s probably better to have it customized professionally.
Audi Shark Flying Car
If you’ve been impatiently waiting for the existence of a flying car, you need to look no further. The Audi Shark Flying car has been invented and tested for use and was inspired by the aerodynamic design and ability of planes combined with endurance and bold style of a classic motorcycle. We can see how Audi came up with the name – this flying automobile has the shape of a shark and supposedly, is meant to surprise not just cars on the road, but other flying cars in its radar. We are, however, still waiting for a launch date in the near future.
The Renault DeZir is a concept car with futuristic butterfly doors, a 148 horse-power mid-mounted electric motor, and a petrol engine.

According to the company, DeZir symbolizes the love stage of their humanity scheme model.
Rolls Royce Apparition Concept Car
Apparently, it is possible for the Rolls-Royce to look more sleek than it usually does. This futuristic concept model has clearly increased in length, with the intention of the driver sitting on the outside as the passengers ride on the inside. Jeremy Westerlund, the vehicle’s developer, once said, “An ultra luxurious chauffeur driven limousine evoking the glamour and sophistication of chauffeur driven cars in the past that has since been lost.” How about that? It seems that a car with a futuristic look is trying to embody the past.
The Aptera might be startling once you first see it but afterward, you’ll realize that you’re staring down one of the most ingenuous inventions to have ever been created. The Aptera glides with the wind and not against it, using three wheels and an aerodynamic design. The prototype for the car is stuck at a standstill, since its production company flatlined in 2011. When production sets back on track, the released model, Aptera 2E, is set to accelerate at 60 miles per hour within ten seconds, with a top speed of 85 mph.
Mercedes Benz F105 Luxury in Motion
The Mercedes-Benz F105 Luxury in Motion could very well possibly be the next Secret Service automobile that transports world leaders to their destinations. With no windows and its autonomous build, the Mercedes-Benz F105 Luxury in Motion will revolutionize the way a driver travels. The Pixel Stream technology within the car projects outside images to the interior of the car, making it the ultimate safety box or isolation tank. According to the car’s creator, Dr. Dieter Zetsche, “Anyone who focuses solely on the technology has not yet grasped how autonomous driving will change our society. The car is growing beyond its role as a mere means of transport and will ultimately become a mobile living space.”
1941 Chrysler Thunderbolt
The 1941 Chrysler Thunderbolt is a unique combination of vintage and futuristic. It was first created and built in the 1940’s, but the general public hadn’t quite grasped the concept of its electric features. Only 4 survive out of the 7 that were built during its inception and thankfully so. Today, the futuristic Thunderbolt can be appreciated as it should have been years ago and replicated for further use. The exterior is an obvious testament to the car’s “ahead of its time” label.
The BMW Gina is a driving paradox of sharp curves and aerodynamic strength. The visionary model was first developed in 2001 and just wasn’t quite ready to be introduced to the buyers’ market. Today, she’s everything and all things that drivers are anticipating. The futuristic car doesn’t just look like it dropped down from space, it thinks like one, too. The vehicle’s memory is auto-saved and remembers each passenger’s personal settings and preferences associated with each seat in the car.
The Volkswagen Splinter appears to be a more extreme, futuristic version of the once-celebrated VW punch buggy. The Splinter is hydrogen fuel-cell-powered concept car in production over at Volkswagen and is a 2-seater meant to fit snuggly in tight spaces (also known as, conserving road and parking space). The prototype looks as if it was inspired by smaller, electric European cars and to be honest, we dig the “concept” of this automobile. Even if it’s only big enough two people, it’ll still be fun to ride in.
Mercedes Benz F-Cell Roadster
This Mercedes-Benz F-Cell Roadster is a concept vehicle made of fiberglass and carbon fiber. The emission-free fuel cell system is hydrogen-electric and it operates with a nifty joystick at the front of this, shall we say, futuristic looking car. Granted, buggy-style rides are a thing of the past. But, if we’ve learned anything so far, it’s that retro style always makes a comeback in the future. Since it’s made by Mercedes, by you be sure that this mini-roadster comes with all the same technology other models of the make are stacked with.
Melbourne Taxi 2020
The Melbourne Taxi 2020 is enough to make you want to ditch your own car and spend your hard-earned dough on rides around the country.

It’s an eco-friendly machine, made with a hydrogen fuel cell and a solar panel system that has recharging hubs, plus much-needed battery generators.
Audi A0 QS
The Audi A0 QS concept car looks cool and sure, you may want to pick up one for yourself when it’s constructed and released but this prototype is specifically reserved for wealthy athletes.

The most recent Toyota model is lightweight and small to easily navigate crowded city streets and is meant for personal driving use. The iRoad has a strong outer shell, uses only three wheels, and has an updated warning system installed in the body’s exterior to prevent accidents and minor collisions. It may not be the perfect car for road trips or family outgoings but for daily purpose and transport, it’s literally a life-saver and fiscally responsible.

For drivers who wish to avoid the classic feel (or price) of a Prius, a Kia Pop could be the perfect fit, especially if you’re a tiny person.
The Cadillac Aera is one of the most fuel-efficient and environmentally friendly vehicles that Cadillac has to offer. It’s still just as charming and sleek as it ever was in design and style, however, this lightweight prototype gives its driver the option to feel guilt-free while riding around for hours. Special air cells are woven into the car’s material, reducing excessive force experienced by the car itself. The most impressive piece of technology in the Cadillac Aera is the Pneumatic Drive System – this specific system uses an engine that is powered by compressed air.
Google Self-Driving Car
If you’ve been dreaming of a car that can let you roam around electronically and totally hands-free, then low and behold the Google Self-Driving Car. This autonomous vehicle uses an array of sensors, sensors, including a LIDAR system, that allows it to properly navigate the roads and hopefully, prevent fatal accidents. Google’s mission in presenting a futuristic car such as this to the world is to clear the roads of any and all dangerous circumstances. The future to this massive company means allowing technology to take care of us when we need it the most.
The Chevrolet EN-V may look like a space pod but it’s a space pod that you can drive down here, on Planet Earth! The Chevy En-V is currently a concept car being produced and continuously worked on by General Motors along with their partners, Segway and SAIC. The narrow design is meant to inspire smaller roads, parking spaces, and limited use of natural resources to fund our travels and daily transports. The EN-V’s two wheels are powered independently through electric charges, as well.

Its compact, modern design comes equipped as a hatchback and the price of the mini-car is only $15,500 (including shipping!). The 2017 model is a surprisingly pleasant electric car that will get from point A to point B, and you’ll feel like The Jetsons doing so. If you’re looking for a smart car that’s not a Prius, this is easily the next best option.
The Nissan Mauro may not look as futuristic as the remainder of the cars on our list but it has the advanced technology to support its placement in the category. The latest model of the Nissan Mauro puts a spin on family-size vehicles and is redesigned to give your SUV a little extra oomph, especially in comparison to the other soccer moms in the parking lot. For just over $30,000, the Mauro comes complete with a 3.5-liter V6 engine and a the same trusty automatic transmission.
