Lincoln Continental - Hilton Holloway
This concept is a world away from the sharp-edged homages to the classic 1961 Lincoln Continental that marked previous attempts to re-invent the brand. It’s a lush, unashamed and heavily chromed attempt at reflecting first class travel in a car, but the production car has to deliver on this promise.
Cadillac CT6 - Matt Burt
Cadillac says its cars must be bold and expressive, and the CT6 certainly fulfils that. I'll have mine as a 400bhp twin-turbo, 3.0-litre V6 please, although I'll need parking sensors because at 5184mm long it looks like an absolute beast. Not convinced it's the car that will help Cadillac crack Europe, but it isn't exactly lacking in presence.
McLaren 570S Coupé - Nigel Donnelly
A new McLaren is exciting enough but the fact that the 570S is democratising the technology developed for the P1 hypercar bodes well for how it will drive. I can't wait to see if it matches up as favourably to its Audi and Porsche rivals on the road as it does on paper.
Range Rover SVAutobiography - Darren Moss
I admire many of the innovations coming out of Jaguar Land Rover at the moment, but I’m pleased to see the firm being the first to jump the gun with a modern, super-luxury SUV. Yes, it costs £148,900 and includes some interesting additions - ‘event’ seating, anyone? - but I have no doubt that Rolls-Royce, Bentley and Mercedes-Maybach will have been over to have a close look themselves.
Porsche Boxster Spyder - Aaron Smith
A Porsche Boxster that is 105kg lighter and 45bhp more powerful than the already potent Boxster GTS has to be my show star. With all Cayman GT4s coming to the UK already accounted for, die-hard purists will have another opportunity to own one of Stuttgart’s most focused three-pedal sports cars.
Subaru STI Performance Concept - Tom Langan
It's no secret that Toyota has sold far more examples of the GT86 than Subaru has of the BRZ, but this concept could prove to be the moment the tide turns.
The STI moniker is held in high regard, with hoards of devotees loyal to the brand to the point of madness. The same can't be said of TRD fans. A strong offering in the form of a BRZ STI could sell in vast numbers, becoming the enthusiasts choice for cheap thrills.
Jaguar XF - Matthew Burrow
2015 promises to be a big year for Jaguar. The XE will arrive in showrooms in May and the new XF will join it before the year is out. The XF has its work cut out but its impressively low running costs, improved interior space and high-tech infotainment system show how serious Jaguar is about knocking the class-leaders off the top spots
