Concours of the Future
What your rich grandchildren might lust after.


In connection with the annual Salon Prive concours, the UK's Royal College of Art asked students to design cars of the future based on some of the most sought-after classics of today. A collection of 11 finalists will be unveiled at the event in September, but here's a sneak peak at where we may be headed.

Bugatti Type 35

The Type 35 was one of the most successful road and racing cars from 1924-1931 and this proposal taps into the old-time simplicity of the original with features that included laced together body panels, slotted hood and Bugatti's horse collar grille.

Audi Auto Union

The prewar Auto Union race cars were some of the fastest and most technologically advanced of their era, inspiration that can be seen in this low-slug coupe fitted with slipstream bodywaork and sitting on hubless wheels.

Rolls Royce Phantom

Playing off the name of the original, this Rolls Royce Opera features a menacing front fascia and unique round doors that looks like it would provide passengers the most dramatic red carpet entrance of all time.

Lamborghini 350 GT

Lamborghini turns 50 this year, and the 350 GT was the car that started it all in 1963. This concept gives the coupe's long-hood profile an edgy update that appears to be draped in a sheet.
