The power output stands at 630hp and a whopping 1000Nm of torque from a 6-litre V12 engine. While Manufacturers are focusing on downsizing, Mercedes has brought in the Maybach with a massive V12 engine!

Renault Trezor Concept
The Trezor was a concept showcased by the French carmaker first in 2016 at the Paris Motor Show. It is 4700mm long, 1080mm high and 2180mm wide and has a two-seater cabin with a coupé-like roofline. Renault claims that the concept has been made with unique design elements such as a single-piece clamshell roof and a carbon-fibre spine which has given the car a very low kerb weight of just 1600kg. The concept model on display sported 21-inch and 22-inch wheels at front and rear. The concept looks very fascinating at the moment, however, the actual production model might come out to be really different than the concept.
