Los Angeles 2014: Audi A7 Sportback H-Tron Quattro Concept Packs a Plug-In Hydrogen Powertrain

While the current batch of plug-in hybrids are seen as some of the most environmentally friendly vehicles on the road today, it’s tough to beat the environmental credentials of a hydrogen fuel cell car, whose emissions are just a few drops of water. Audi has gone a step further with the Audi A7 Sportback H-Tron Quattro Concept, adding an 8.8 kWh lithium-ion battery that can be recharged via a power socket, giving the fuel cell vehicle even more flexibility. But perhaps even more intriguing is the fact that this one actually sounds fun to drive.

Los Angeles 2014: Lexus LF-C2 Concept

Lexus has unveiled their latest design study in the form of a 2 + 2 roadster that recalls the distinctive looks of the LF-LC Concept that debuted in Detroit in 2012, and the currently-in-production RC coupe, which has yet to see a convertible model added to its roster.

Los Angeles 2014: Bentley Grand Convertible Concept

Bentley has been teasing us with an open top grand touring machine based on the Mulsanne platform ever since the Arnage-based Azure bowed out a few years ago. Such a vehicle has yet to appear in showrooms, but that doesn’t mean Bentley has forgotten about the project. The highly exclusive automaker intends to make that clear with the Grand Convertible Concept on display at the Los Angeles Auto Show this year, and while it isn’t a production-ready example, it’s a good indicator that automaker has every intention of moving forward with the droptop if interest is there.

Rumors: 2015 BMW M2 Rendered, Specs Detailed

While the new M3 sedan and M4 coupe are highly capable on the racetrack and adept at handling daily driver duties, over the years, the steady increase in both physical size and price tags of those cars have caused some hemming and hawing from BMW fans who long for the simpler days of the 2002 and the E30 M3. But fear not, faithful enthusiasts – BMW has not forgotten about you. The M2 is coming, and it’s shaping up to be a very compelling option.

Rumor: 2015 Porsche 911 GT3 RS Revealed in Patent Photos
