10 Concept Cars We Wish Had Been Built.
Mazda Furai Concept
If the Far East ever gave birth to another version of the Batmobile, the Mazda Furaiwould serve well as inspiration. Quite possibly one of the most beautiful concepts we’ve ever laid eyes on, it was never intended for production… not for street driving, anyway. The Furai debuted at the 2008 North American International Auto Show in Detroit and marked the final concept in Mazda’s fluid Nagare line. Its name, meaning “sound of the wind”, was fitting: the Furai was powered by an all-new 20B 3-rotor wankel engine that was good for over 400 hp. From its intricate headlight configuration to the sinewy ribcage side vents and the stunning engine canopy treatment, the Furai brought the future to the present, and though it will never be built for the street or see any form of real production, it’s been tested for the track. Doesn’t really matter how fast it is, though. We think it looks amazing standing still.
