Angry Which concept vehicle do you wish came into production, but didn't.

This feeds my anger every time, because even though it would've cost $800,000 if it did come into production, it would be the only car I felt would be worth it. Yes, my friends, the Ford GT90 is the only car that has caused my jaw to drop and me to question what my own eyes were witnessing. This marvel, way ahead of its time, will never show its beauty on top of silk asphalt, sun glistening off of its pearl white layers of metal, intertwining mysteriously with your soul, telling you that the fiction portrayed by an altered realm is in fact a reality. I think that if I could have one day to lay my palms upon the steering wheel of this heavenly prescence, I would know what bliss in its purest form felt like, and as I gaze into oblivion through the rear-view mirror, me and this vehicle, for seemingly forever, are the only things existing throughout the depths of infinite. Any of you guys have a concept car that make you feel this way? If so, post the model. Thanx.

cadillac cien, but I don't feel as passionate for it as I think you do for the GT90. I just thought it would have been cool if it came into production. A nice looking car all around.

There are a ton of cars. I can't really think of them right now, but just to get started, Cien, a ton of GM stuff.

dodge's aptly named "concept car" would have been sweet to see in production. it was such an amazingly styled car with such class, and it was quick... it would have been great competition with the roadster market with the audi tt and the 350z roadster.

Sorry man, but the GT90 is in Mclaren F1 territory (Top speed of about 240 mph & 0-60 in around 3 secs)

lol.. what're you talking about? I'm not talkin about the gt90.. the gt90's not even a dodge, it's a ford. I'm talking about the concept car... it's actually named the copperhead, but i figured since 1/2 of you are teeny boppers who play gran tourismo, it's called the dodge concept car in the first gran tourismo. But yeah, it would have been a great addition to todays roadster market. It was a 220hp v6 roadster, which only got 0-60 in 6.8 seconds, but with a larger engine (it's only a 2.7L v6) like maybe a 3.0 or 3.5 they would be able to compete with the other roadsters, and contribute the exotica factor of it's unique body style.

Cadilac 16 would be a nice production car. Or the volkswagen nardo. And the coolest staion wagon of all times the volvo VCC. i think thats what its called. Another great one is the honda dualnote.

Re: Which concept vehicle do you wish came into production, but didn't.

Yeah.. I'm thinking not. I believe a w16 is a lot better of an idea than the v16. v16's have been tried before. This is not the first. i just don't think that it's as much a production ready car as it is just a car to show that GM still has some good ideas coming out.

Well i dont know about the whole car but the engine is production ready. there is a running V16 engine. it has 1001 HP. It is esentialy two gm V8 that are welded at the crank. The engine was designed on computer so it was easy to build and design. If you want to know more, it was all in an article in Car and Driver about engine development

Re: Which concept vehicle do you wish came into production, but didn't.

What I'm trying to say is it sounds too irrealistic. 1000hp at a crank that's being pushed by 16 pistons and is as long as a telephone pole. I understand that it obviously works, but it seems like it wouldn't be a very reliable engine, and there'd be many problems down the line.

Re: Which concept vehicle do you wish came into production, but didn't.

also with that much heat being developed by the engine block it seems it would be hard to keep the engine cool for a long powerful drive.

Re: Which concept vehicle do you wish came into production, but didn't.

To start, all cadillacs can suck my left nut. (caddy 16, and cien?) Anywho, the concept car i wish could make it to production is the ford 49, and the mazda ibuki. That would be cool.
about the GT90, it is a sweet looking car, but i doubt anyone would pay 800k for a ford, and its white. bla. i am quite pleased with the GT, and i am glad they left it at that.
