Automotive enthusiasts will be itching to get their hands on them, and take them for a spin on the streets!

1. Mercedes-Benz Harp

Meet the Mercedes-Benz Harp – an automotive whose core idea is combined with the shapes of musical instruments, hence the name! The conceptual Mercedes car draws inspiration from the W196R Formula-1 racing car which was developed for the 1954 and 1955 seasons. The front seam has a modern aesthetic, which is paired up with an asymmetric windshield panel to the rear. The contoured front and the sharp rear create an interesting contrast, which offers the HARP with an impressive persona, and the appearance of a god-like figure in a stunning costume!

2. Polestar 8

Dubbed the Polestar 8, this incredible SUV concept is designed by Turin-based Salvatore Ville. The car concept is designed to embrace minimalism in a beautiful yet interesting manner. Vurin gifted the automotive with a powerful and intimidating silhouette, instead of opting for clean surfaces only. The dominating automotive is what the Polestar 3 would look like on steroids! It is equipped with a wider and more brutish design, as well as clean form, but a roguish personality.

3. Scorpion

Meet the 2030 Scorpion concept which is designed to be a new pickup truck frame design with an expansive form. The innovative-looking automobile is shaped like a scorpion or a mountain bike helmet. The car features an optimized ratio of the overall lump, ensuring there is ample cargo space, without compromising the rear seating configuration. The vehicle has a high ride height which allows it to navigate challenging and difficult terrains with complete ease. In fact, the car looks inspired by the Rezvani Motors Vengeance bullet-proof vehicle.

4. Mehretu’s BMW M Hybrid V8

Julie Mehretu is known for her expansive and intricate canvases, and she recently transformed the BMW M Hybrid V8 – an automobile of power and precision into a dynamic and intriguing piece of art. It was designed to be a performative painting which would race in the legendary 24 Hours of Le Mans. Mehretu had digitally altered photos, layered dot grids, neon veils, and her signature black markings to build a stunning and three-dimensional masterpiece.

5. Mercedes-Benz Dresscode

This is the Mercedes-Benz Dresscode – a car that is designed to be the epitome of iconic luxury. The automotive features the shapes of collars, and the stunning rich volumes of a formal dress. If you look closely at the mesmerizing hypercar, you will notice that it looks like a white shirt with a tie on top, and a black jacket placed over it. The white portions of the car function as the shirt with the edged surfaces, while the black body covering the car brings to mind the image of a jacket.
