World Premier : Frankfurt International Motor Show (September 2017)

Gregory Guillaume, chief designer for Kia Motors Europe, commented: “With many European drivers now seeking performance alternatives to the three-door hot hatch, we began thinking about a different halo model for the cee’d family.

“The Proceed Concept represents a bold new vision of how the vibrant soul of the pro_cee’d could be reincarnated and revitalised for a new generation of performance-oriented drivers.”

A high-performance statement in aesthetics, the Proceed Concept is striking from any angle. The interior is designed with the future in mind, with a luxurious and stylish cockpit playing host to a full suite of advanced features designed to enrich your driving experience. It isn’t all about the looks though; the extended hot hatch is meant to maximize functionality. The athletic appearance is enhanced by other sensory experiences that extend even to the driver’s sense of smell; it is a truly stunning vehicle in every way.

Frankfurt, 7 September 2017 – Kia Motors has revealed new images of the Proceed Concept. Kia’s new concept car makes its world debut at the 2017 Frankfurt International Motor Show on 12 September.

Designed at Kia’s European design centre in Frankfurt, just 500 metres from where it will be unveiled, the Proceed Concept indicates what the next-generation cee’d could look like.

The concept presents a new body type for Kia. The extended hot hatch retains the athleticism of the current pro_cee’d model, while combining its striking visual presence with a dash of real-world versatility. Reworked and reimagined for a new generation of driver, it puts forward a bold vision for a potential member of the next-generation cee’d family.

Low, lean and lithe, the Proceed Concept’s rakish roofline, muscular proportions and compact footprint hint at its outright agility. The silhouette of the car is complemented by a series of distinctive design cues. A dynamic window frame follows the roofline to the rear tailgate, while the striking ‘Sharkblade’ in the bodywork, complete with GT logo, reinforces its lack of B-pillars. Lateral strakes exaggerate the Proceed Concept’s slim waistline and lend an air of muscularity to the rear of the car. It runs on six-spoke aluminium alloy wheels, 20 inches in diameter.

Where daytime running lights have become a key element in a car’s identity, the Proceed Concept uses light in other ways. The concept features a ‘Luminline’ – an illuminated outline of the car’s glasshouse that greets drivers as they approach the car. This serves as a powerful nocturnal visual identifier for the Proceed Concept, highlighting its fastback shape. The concept’s dramatic roofline flows into a tailgate characterised by its stacked air vents, and the rippled surface of a rear light strip inspired by molten ferromagnetic metal.

Its stance and proportions may be new, but the Proceed Concept features many of Kia’s now familiar design motifs. The iconic ‘tiger nose’ grille, the sculpted ‘island’ bonnet inspired by the Stinger, the castellated windscreen, the full-length roof glazing, and Kia’s inimitable mix of curvaceous sheetmetal and taut creases. Each element singles out the Proceed Concept as a truly modern Kia.

The concept is finished in bespoke ‘Lava Red’ paintwork. This has been created by combining multiple hand-applied layers of black, chrome-effect silver, and red-tinted lacquer for a glossy, lustrous paint finish.

Kia will unveil the Proceed Concept on 12 September on the Kia stand, located in Hall 9 of the Frankfurt Messe exhibition centre.

Jaguar has a clear and definite design. Jaguar considers character lines and proportion when designing. The car's sharp character-lines and its aerodynamic shape is designed to feel speediness by just standing in middle of street. When viewing on top, volume of the body is rounded in middle, and its end gets narrow. This aerodynamic body tells a strong design philosophy of Jaguar, which has been passed down since 1922.

To become a masterpiece, design needs to try defying gravity. Design must look beautiful and stand out in the middle of new concept cars flooding into market. Sometimes the new type of material is changed, or various of colors are added, but a masterpiece never loses its tradition. Jaguar is one of a kind.

Considering its trend and tradition, we present keywords 'Performance and Luxury' to a new Jaguar concept. Furthermore, we offer new vision of smart technology that meets the needs of target consumer and society. Experts say the Smart Autonomous system will lead the new era of car design. As a designer, it is a challenge to design cars with the new system. This project started with three keywords, Perfomance, Luxury and Smart. We focused on designing and suggesting a new solution to the challenge that Jaguar will face in future.

California premiere.

For the new PlayStation® 3 racing game Gran Turismo® 6, the Mercedes-Benz designers have developed the visionary concept of a super sports car – the Mercedes-Benz AMG Vision Gran Turismo. Extreme proportions, sensual contours and intelligently implemented high tech blend to form a breathtaking body. As a 1:1-scale model, the Mercedes-Benz AMG Vision Gran Turismo is celebrating its world premiere at the opening of the new Mercedes-Benz Research & Development Center in Sunnyvale, California.

Muscular bodyshell.

The sports car proportions that are a typical Mercedes-Benz feature have been reinterpreted: the long bonnet has a flowing transition into a compact greenhouse offset to the rear, which takes the form of an aerodynamically efficient water drop to descend slightly at the rear, where it rests on the rear end with broad shoulder contours.

The dynamic aura is accentuated by an extended, dramatic side contour and a pronounced bulge to the wheel arches, which blend into the low-slung, muscular bodyshell. The angled headlamps, with their colour scheme and determined look, convey a sense of sportiness and readiness to leap forward.

LED grille.

Another eye-catching feature is the radiator grille – a reinterpretation of the wide Mercedes-Benz sports car grille with central star. Its shape is reminiscent of the legendary 300 SL racing car of 1952. However, instead of classic louvres the grille of the show car features exclusively LEDs. The variable LED grille with different light patterns is a further development of the diamond grille introduced with the new A-Class.

The AMG Vision concept may look to the future, but several of its inspirations are clearly from the past. There are nods to the classic 300SL and the current SLS AMG in its shape, though its gorgeous side profile is a big departure. The car's aerodynamics look much improved and the heavy use of LED lights gives it a far more futuristic look, bringing the Jaguar C-X75 concept to mind from a number of angles. Those iconic gullwing doors are retained, though.

The body is an aluminium space frame, while a number of the Vision’s components are made from carbonfibre. As a result, the kerb weight is rated at 1385kg – around 250kg less than a regular SLS. And the Vision’s 577bhp, 590lb ft 5.5-litre twin-turbo V8 (borrowed from the new E63 AMG S) ensures its 0-60 time and top speed will be an improvement over the SLS AMG’s respective 4.1sec and 197mph. A sports exhaust system with eight rear tailpipes also promises a fairly epic soundtrack to match the performance.
