RETRO CHIC INFINITI PRO­TO­TYPE 9

A take on a modern day 1940s racer, the de­sign con­cept for the Pro­to­type 9 be­gan as a sketch and evolved into an af­ter-hours de­sign and engi­neer­ing project. It is pow­ered by an elec­tric mo­tor and fin­ished in bare sheet-metal. Its top speed is 106mph and it hits 60mph in 5.3 sec­onds. But un­der heavy track use its range is just 20 miles.

JAGUAR E-TYPE ZERO

Meet the most beau­ti­ful elec­tric car yet: the Jaguar E-Type Zero. Based on the orig­i­nal 1960s de­sign, the con­cept re­mains true to the clas­sic car’s sleek styling. It fea­tures an elec­tric mo­tor, smart in­fo­tain­ment sys­tem and LED head­lights. It is faster than the orig­i­nal too, with a 0-60mph time of just 5.3 sec­onds and an im­pres­sive real world range of 170 miles.
