If a tuner were to give the DeLorean a futuristic makeover, complete with airless tires, this is probably what it would look like, or so artist Khyzyl Saleem thinks. "I've always wondered what a DeTomaso Pantera would have looked like as a time machine instead of the not-so-trustworthy Delorean haha. So here it is, a mixture of photo bashing & painting, just my modern-ish interpretation of one. I had to add Marty in as well becuase..well..it's Marty (his face is a little odd but the time issue got in the way)," said Saleem.

The problem with the Lamborghini Huracan, and just about any other supercar / hypercar, is that they're built more for show than function. Rain Prisk Designs wants to change that, and created a concept with tracks, perfect for snow or mud.

Adriano Raeli, a 28-year-old automotive designer, speaks up about this famed Ferrari F80 hypercar concept, which is touted to have a top speed of 300mph if it were to ever go in production.

Enzo Ferrari had always been a great inspiration for me, and I wanted to pay tribute to this great idol of the automotive world. My goal was to design a car that would be up to his standards as well as those of Pininfarina, which I have also always admired.

Here's another look at the Chevrolet FNR, a futuristic concept vehicle with a capsule design. What sets this apart from other self-driving cars are its "Dragonfly" dual-swing doors that enable most of the bodywork to peel away like armor.
