Concepts from Future Past: Lamborghini Calà

Concepts from Future Past: Lamborghini Calà
Lamborghini certainly has had no shortage of impressive looking supercars in its illustrious history. This particular concept car from 1995 had a significant impact on the design or later model Lambos, specifically the Gallardo – which would then lay the groundwork for the Huracán LP 610-4. Designed by ItalDesign’s maestro Giorgetto Giugiaro, the Lamborghini Calà was initially created as a replacement for the Jalpa, which had been discontinued all the way back in 1988. Like the cars that would follow almost a decade later, the Cala was powered by a mid-mounted V10 engine – in this case a 4-liter, 372 horsepower model.

Concepts from Future Past: 1965 Dodge Deora

Concepts from Future Past: 2002 Dodge Razor

Lincoln Taunts ’60s Continental Fans with the Return of Suicide Doors

Lincoln Taunts ’60s Continental Fans with the Return of Suicide Doors
Think about the Lincoln of modern times, and if you aren’t a grandparent, the cars likely hold little appeal. While their new cars are elegant, they have strayed far away from the cool design features of yore that made the brand so desirable.

Concepts from Future Past: 2003 Mercury Messenger

Concepts from Future Past: 2003 Mercury Messenger
It’s strange to me that Mercury was still making cars as recently as 2011. I had it in my mind that Ford retired the brand long before that. While I don’t remember Mercury offering any car that I liked since the Cougars and Capris of the late 60s and early 1970s, it sure would have been interesting if they had ever produced this sports car they showed off back in 2003. The Mercury Messenger was shown off at the NAIAS Show in Detroit that year, surprising the audience with a powerful 2-seat sports car that nobody was expecting from the brand.

The Lamborghini ST-X Concept is based on the anything but regular old Urus SUV and uses the twin-turbo V8 engine from that SUV that makes 650 hp and 627 lb-ft.

Concepts from Future Past: Oldsmobile Aerotech
Say the name “Oldsmobile” and it doesn’t exactly conjure images of powerful sports cars. But back in 1987, the company stamped their name on this futuristic looking hypercar, dubbed the Aerotech. Built in several iterations between 1987 and 1992, the Aerotech wasn’t really a concept car, but was designed and built as an experimental test vehicle – with its sights set on breaking automotive speed records. In 1987, the Aerotech I was driven by Indy 500 champ A.J.
