      Some of you have already nailed some of my favorites (Kensington, Rondine, 449 and Efijy) Still it's very hard to pick one. The Bertone Carabo wasn't terribly realistic, though it was outstanding. Same with the Dome P1. The '63 Corvair Monza concepts were incredible but not quite production realistic.





      So I'm going to pick the Lotus Etna: It should have been the follow up to the Esprit, but it never happened. I always thought it was gorgeous.

      Wish I had more info for ya but it was indeed a concept car circa 96 or 97 I believe. I remember having had seen it at the New York International Auto show back then. The picture above are linked from Vortex's concept gallery.

      Can you say Veyron? The best part of this thread is seeing how these actually influenced design. I think Audi is the most organized. Two of the concepts posted have been build. That white one is a damn S5 and that other one is an R8.

      This^ and the Jeep FC, and the oft-mentioned GX-3 from VW. They are all concepts I would actually make efforts to buy if they were built.

      I can't quite think of anything right now. But one car that comes to mind, the kia naimo, which i would definitely buy if it came out. However i'll contribute more to this thread after i'm done criticizing how ugly the Mercedes SLS is.

      You know what concept cars are, right? This tread is about realistic concept cars and what you posted is just a render (an unofficial at that). Good luck driving that.

      Stupid post is stupid. You just disqualified a bunch of posters here...

      Good luck driving most any of the concepts here, genius... but they're all "realistic" in that they were conceived by someone, and someone else wishes to drive it (the entire, er, "concept" behind "concept cars..."

      Here, drive this...

      dodge always had kick ass concepts... these would be my two picks... and Im surprised they have neither been posted yet... especially the Copperhead....







      EDIT: I know the thread rules state "pick ONE" and I've already posted two, but I had to add this one, the Jeep Gladiator:
