In this design the new 2017 Mustang was given  a classic look.  Mustangs come from two worlds: the iconic muscle car world and the world of modern design language. We can only imagine what the modern Mustang would look like with the lines from 30 years ago.

This design takes us back to the glory days of the Mercedes-Benz 300 SL Gullwing. Introduced in 1954, it was the first iteration SL-class grand tourer and the fastest produced car of its era. But its most memorable features were the “gullwing” doors. Our redesign keeps the modern design language, but it has been strongly influenced by the 300 SL.

Agent 007 has driven many cars in James Bond movies, but none is more iconic than the Aston Martin DB5. It made its debut in Goldfinger (1964) and has since appeared in Thunderball (1965), Goldeneye (1995), Tomorrow Never Dies (1997), Casino Royale (2006), Skyfall (2012) and Spectre (2015). Jennings Motor Group added the classic touch of this car to the modern Aston Martin body and design

LaFerrari has been described as Ferrari’s most exciting road-car since the F40. The Italian hypercar is powered by a 6.2-litre naturally aspirated V12 and a 120 kW electric engine. The LaFerrari is the most valuable 21st century automobile ever sold at auction, going for $7 million in 2016. Jennings Motor Group imagined how it might look like if Enzo Ferrari himself had drawn the design lines for the car.

Bugatti Chiron Retro Concept

The Bugatti Chiron was one of the most anticipated hypercars ever. Production was limited to just 500 cars, so consider yourself lucky if you ever get to see a Chiron in traffic. The all-wheel-drive car is powered by a quad-turbocharged 8-liter W16 engine that produces 1500 horsepower. Jennings Motor Group's retro-Chiron has the shape and design of a very sporty Classic VW Beetle – this is how apparent opposites complement each other.

Audi R8 Retro Concept

Audi has many classic models, but we selected a bit more recent one. The Audi R8 went into production in 2006 and uses Audi’s trademark quattro permanent all-wheel drive system. The R8 was designed, developed and manufactured by Audi Sport and shares the platform with Lamborghini Gallardo. The redesign is a flashback to the older Audi models; the wheels, in particular, remind us of the classic Quattro from the 80s.

Dodge Charger Retro Concept

Dodge has produced many classic car models throughout its history. Who could forget the 1968 Dodge Charger R/T in Steve McQueen’s 1968 film Bullit? The Charger has recently taken a sharp turn towards the modern and lost much of its muscle car flare. Here it is, brought it back to its roots, inspired by the classic Dodge Charger Daytona.
