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.
