Hummer HX Concept

Looking to challenge Jeep Wrangler head-on, Hummer has come up with an entry-level offering called the HX. Riding on a 103.0-in. wheelbase, the open-top HX measures 171.0 in. overall and is powered by a 3.6-liter V-6 producing 304 bhp and 272 lb.-ft. of torque. The engine is mated to a 6-speed automatic transmission. The suspension features an independent front with coil-over shocks and a semi-trailing link rear. Brembo 6-piston caliper front and 4-piston rear disc brakes are found beneath 20-in. alloy wheels.



With GM at around 3$ a share I doubt its going to be made.

The ad

The Mini Crossover Concept hints at what a fourth body variant of the Mini family might look like. The Mini Crossover Concept is notable for several reasons, such as that it's the first Mini over 4 meters (that's more than 158 in., for the metric-impaired) in length, while the other dimensions — 62.9 in. height, 72.0 in. width and a 102.6-in. wheelbase — also dwarf previous Minis. It also has four doors, all-wheel drive and four individual seats, the rears mimicking the fronts in their contours. Company officials say the Mini Crossover seeks to "combine the individual style of the brand with enhanced versatility within the interior and innovative functionality throughout."

horrible
i think most stock rotaries get somewhere in the 20's and the more you upgrade the further down it goes.
i think that furai gets very low mileage but i can't say exactly how much.

Do you like the Mazda Furai Concept? What is your favorite Car concept?


“Furai,” simply translated, means "sound of the wind" and is the fifth iteration or evolution of Mazda's new design language exemplified in its initial Nagare concept, which you may recall meant “flow.” Far from just a piece of artwork on wheels, this working concept actually began life as one of Mazda's 2006 season ALMS P2 race cars.

Built on a Courage C65 chassis and powered by a 450-bhp 3-rotor rotary engine, this ethanol (E100)-powered concept car is an exercise in reverse homologation: It represents an ideal within the Mazda philosophy, and that is to bridge the gap between single-purpose race cars (ALMS) and street-legal models (Ferrari Enzo, Lotus Elise), according to Mazda's Director of Design, Franz von Holzhausen.

The complex outer shell of the Furai clearly follows its predecessor's design trends, but through the guidance and expertise of Swift Engineering also functions aerodynamically. Front-fascia channels direct air to the brake ducts as strategically placed louvers on top of the front wheel fenders aid heat evacuation and help suck the front end closer to the ground. Its sculpted flanks create turbulence which draws air to the side ducts that help keep the engine cool in conjunction with the radiators mounted in the car's sidepods. Aft of the gullwing doors, flow-directing details continue to guide air over the car's rear haunches toward a large, functioning, adjustable-element spoiler. The sharp element you see protruding from the roof is called an Air Fang, and was designed by the guys at Swift to optimize ram air induction. The air split by the Air Fang creates vortices which force air down into the intake

Mazda will never give up on rotaries. Haha.

I like them, but I don't think I'd ever buy a car with a rotary. Gas is horrible, and finding mechanics could prove to be a pain.
