- The DS7 Crossback is the first SUV from DS.
- Looks like an older Porsche, but isn't – it's a new Ruf CTR, built on a custom carbonfibre tub and featuring carbonfibre panels. It's no slouch, either, as it packs some 700bhp. Yes, the Yellowbird lives again...

- This is the Land Rover Velar, which sits below the Range Rover Sport in its line-up. It features a range of new tech and trim options.
- The I-Pace is Jaguar's first all-electric car. We've seen it before, but the red paint is new.
- It's still a concept at the moment but it's thought to closely preview a production model.

- Pagani's wondrous Huayra Roadster packs a 754bhp twin-turbo 6.0-litre V12. Company founder Horacio Pagani said that the project was the most complicated that Pagani had ever undertaken, due to issues surrounding rigidity and handling.

- This is the all-electric Artega Scalo Superelletra. It's claimed to pack 1020bhp and be capable of 0-62mph in 2.7sec, and orders are being taken now – but only 50 will be built. It was designed by Italian coachbuilders Touring Superleggera.

- This is 'The Black Cuillin'. It's a luxury V12 sports car concept, from bespoke British manufacturer Eadon Green, which draws inspiration from the Alfa 8C 2900.
- Looks like an LMP1 car, but it's actually a concept for a road-going electric hypercar. It's called the Dendrobium and is from a company called Vanda Electrics. Williams Advanced Engineering, however, is responsible for its design and development.

  • I was hoping to see a GT-R... :) Still, the Infiniti Q60 Project Black S seems pretty impressive. Not to mention the Regera, though.
