The 2015 Tokyo Motor Show has seen some stunning cars unveiled—both real world and concept versions. If you want to know where motoring technology is heading in the next 20 years, this is a good place to start.
We’ve collated a range of our favourite unveilings, but check the official Tokyo Motor Show gallery page to peruse the amazing selection of cars (try not to drool too much).
NISSAN CONCEPT 2020 VISION GRAN TURISMO
Although this is just a concept, this is an exciting glimpse into the direction that Nissan could be taking with its flagship GTR.
Porsche 911 Carrera 4S
Porsche have unveiled the new 911 Carrera 4S, housing the latest generation of the legendary bi-turbo flat six engine. This 309kW donk will power you to a top speed of 205km/h. Porsche have also announced active rear-wheel steering as an option, previously only available on the 911 turbo and the 911 GT3.
Mercedes AMG C63 S
Always a crowd favourite, the AMG 4.0L engine with bi-turbo charging engine now produces an astonishing 375kW and 700Nm of torque. Where AMG is concerned, you know you’re in for an exciting ride.
Mercedes AMG GT S
Mercedes’ replacement to the SLS was on display and although it has already been released, Mercedes’ track inspired supercar will never fail to turn heads.
Audi R8 V10 Plus
The second generation of the original Audi R8 sees a raft of major improvements such as an ultra- light weight body with ASF (Audi Space Frame) and a naturally aspirated , 449kW V10 engine that will do 0-100km/h in a mind blowing 3.2 seconds.
BMW M4 GTS
The M4 GTS is an exclusive, race-track oriented model of the relatively new M4, limited to only 700 units. How BMW managed to improve the standard of the M4 we don’t know, but a claimed time on the legendary Nordschleife of the Nürburgring of 7 minutes 28 seconds makes this car a serious performer.
The NSX of old has been a favourite of track and street drivers alike for years and the new NSX will continue to carry the flag. Things are a little more advanced these days, with a new inline V6 twin turbo and Honda’s new SPORT HYBRID SH-AWD® (Super Handling All-Wheel Drive) powertrain, adding another contender to list of the world’s hottest hybrid supercar.
Just a concept at this stage, but could this be the much rumoured rotary replacement for the much loved RX8?
