The top concepts at the Frankfurt motor show give a close look into the shapes that our cars will take in the coming years.
Four of our top five cars will spawn production variants, in fact. It's a trend which has been growing in recent years - you just have to look back to some of the concept cars from the 2011 Frankfurt motor show to see how many are now on sale. The Ford Fiesta ST, Infiniti FX Vettel edition, Range Rover Evoque, and the Alfa Romeo 4C are all either on sale now, or coming very soon.
Concepts are often the headline acts at motor shows, and the Frankfurt motor show has been no exception. Click below for the full stories behind our top five concept cars of the show.
The stunning Jaguar SUV concept sets out the marque's future - and marks the beginning of an ambitious model expansion programme too. Over the next few years the new all-aluminium architecture known as iQ[Al] will start to underpin a new generation of models from Jaguar. Described by bosses as being flexible, modular and scalable, the platform gives Jaguar a lot of design freedom. We already know the new architecture will be used in developing the firm's BMW 3-series rival, planned for 2015.
