However, in contrast to its front, he kept the rear portion simple with an almost naked frame.
Designed by Dejan Hristov, the Jeep Ayastigi Trackhawk Coupe concept was inspired by the Cherokee war armor. The two colors represent the color of the armor in relation to the color of the skin. Featuring the Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk’s petrol engine (707 hp, 6.2L SRT HEMI V8 Supercharged), the concept car abandons rear-view mirrors for tiny cameras and the rear windshield for a pop-up cover.

The epitome of Scandinavian design, Rashid Tagirov’s Volvo PV is simplistic, sleek and sensible. It allows for adjustable seating positions according to your comfort. You could stand for short distances, lounge about for longer distances. However, since the headrests are connected to the tail lights, the interiors remain the same, whereas the exteriors alter.
