Concept Cars

Mazda Furai. The Mazda Furai officially debuted at the 2008 North American International Auto Show in Detroit.
Lamborghini Estoque had all the makings of a top-end sedan, including a powerful 5.2-liter V10 engine.
The Renault DeZir is an electric concept that was first officially presented at the 2010 Paris Motor Show. The car is a two seater coupé with butterfly doors. It features a 148 hp mid-mounted electric motor.
Bertone Jaguar B99 was a concept car designed and developed by the Italian design house Bertone. It was first shown to the public on the Bertone stand at the 2011 Geneva Motor Show.
The Aurora was an American automobile manufactured by Father Alfred A. Juliano, a Catholic priest, from 1957 to 1958. The Aurora Motor Company of Branford, Connecticut, partially funded by Juliano's congregation, went bankrupt after producing just one $30,000 prototype.
In 1993, the car was discovered by British car enthusiast Andy Saunders of Poole, Dorset. After several years of searching, he eventually tracked the car down by the name of the garage in the background of a photograph of the car, purchased it sight unseen for $1,500, and had it shipped to Britain for another $2,000.

Restoration was completed in early 2005, and the car is now on display in the Beaulieu Motor Museum.
