2017 Mazda Miata RF
The arrival of the latest Mazda Miata, also known as the Mazda MX-5, has been long-awaited by the automotive scene. And instead of a soft top, the modest Japanese roadster is now equipped with a Retractable Fastback roof. The Machine Grey coat makes the car look aggressive despite its size. But beyond the look, this light ride can still launch to a good speed with its 155-hp SkyActive engine that can be mated with a 6-speed manual or 6-speed automatic.
2017 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 Convertible
The Bow Tie is waving the banner yet again for true blue American muscle. This time with a convertible version of the Chevy’s famed Camaro ZL1 that is meant to deliver high performance in style. Under its hood is a 640-hp supercharged 6.2 liter V8 block shared with the Corvette Z06. Despite some design differences, the car is reinforced to be able to get the kind of drive you would get from the coupe. In the handling department, the convertible benefits from a limited slip differential, Brembo disc brakes, Performance Traction Management electronic system, and Goodyear Eagle F1 Supercar rubbers.
Hyundai Genesis Hybrid Sport Sedan Concept
Now with a reinforced team of engineers and designers, Hyundai wants to take a jab on the segment dominated by the BMW 3 Series and the likes. We present to you the Genesis Hybrid Sport Sedan Concept. There are significant changes in the body lines that make it look ready for the future of the auto industry but it somehow retains the design language shared by other Hyundai vehicles. The 242-hp 2-liter hybrid engine is mated to an 8-speed automatic transmission for convenient performance.
2017 Audi R8 Spyder
The R8 has been one of the most recognizable supercars in recent automotive history. The all-wheel drive beast is powered by a 5.2-liter V10 engine that is mated to a 7-speed dual clutch transmission. It can launch from zero to sixty in about 3.6 seconds and has a top speed of 197 mph. And the best part of it – you can have all the fun sans the roof.
Lincoln Navigator Concept
The Lincoln Navigator has been around since the 1990s. But now, the luxury brand came up with a more daring design for the new concept. Engineers have integrated “wings” to serve as the passenger doors along with extendable side steps. The goal here is to provide a very comfortable and convenient travel to those that will ride this SUV. Furthermore, the passengers can enjoy playing games or watching videos on the screens fitted on the seats.
