My Version of Best Concept Cars on Shanghai Autoshow 2011

The A3 sedan is the latest Audi to get the electric e-tron treatment. In this case, it's powered by a 2-liter engine and an electric motor that Audi claims will get the car from zero to 60 mph in 6.8 seconds, and on to a top speed of 150 mph.

BMW 's Concept M5, seen here in the shadows in "Chrome Shadow" gray paint, is a lightly disguised version of the new M5. The new car will swap its V-10 for a twin-turbo V-8 that the company claims reduces fuel consumption -- and emissions -- by 25 percent. 

“For this concept, Lexus designers studied characteristics that are often considered contradictory and difficult to execute together,” said Kengo Matsumoto, general manager, Lexus Design Division, Toyota Motor Corporation. 

The A-Class concept, which will also be seen in New York this week, is truly a world car. This three-door hatchback will be powered by a 1.4-liter, four-cylinder engine, and promises excellent fuel economy.

Peter Horbury, Volvo's chief designer, says "We're trying to dig deeper to find a beautiful Volvo." For the Concept Universe, he dug all the way back to the PV544, which featured a broad front end and an elevated cowl line
