Top 5 Coolest Futuristic Vehicles

What will transportation look like in a few decades? With the exponential speed of technology, the possibilities are truly infinite. In this set, we look at some outrageously cool futuristic vehicles that may just give us a peak of what’s to come.

5.) Flying Ferrari X-Racer

Designer Vincent Montreuil piques our imaginations with the flying Ferrari X-Racer. Inspired by Ferrari’s Formula 1 car, the Ferrari X-Racer will scorch the skies at roaring speeds while levitating in mid-air.

4.) Wall-Climbing Car

For those living in high-rise apartments in the city, parking can be a real hassle. Now imagine if you had a car that could climb walls and park right outside your apartment window.

This computer mouse-looking concept car is called the Peugeot Metromorph and was created to face the ever-growing issues of metropolitan cities. The vehicle is powered by two in-wheel motors and two battery packs placed in the back, and is designed with rotating arms that keep the seats level when going vertical of horizontal. When attached to the apartment, the vehicle acts like a balcony and its seat become lounge chairs.

3.) Robo Taxi

Conceived by Czech designer Petr Kubik, the Robo Taxi is designed for large metropolitan cities in which passengers can set their destination using the taxi's touch screen interface.

The lightweight vehicle is composed of two main parts: an undercarriage and a cabin, which can accommodate a maximum of two passengers with ordinary hand-held baggage. The car is driven by two electric motors which are integrated into the rear wheels and can operate for up to 20 hours.

2.) Jetbike

Conceptualized by Norio Fujikawa, this Jetbike is every boy’s dream.

1.) Audi Shark

The Audi Shark is a futuristic flying concept vehicle designed by Kazim Doku.

Inspired by the world of motorcycles and airplanes, the flying sports vehicle’s exterior design offers a visual reference to the car’s name, and in combination with the rear lower spoiler, gives the two-seater an “underwater” appearance. The LED headlights and tail lights are installed in transparent tubes, while the interior of the Shark is decked out with sporty seats integrated inside the cockpit.
