Each year at the annual Easter Jeep Safari our favorite off-roading automaker releases their concept designs for the future. This year, Jeep showed off seven new designs that range from vintage to modern. Our favorite was the 4Speed, a Wrangler-based designed that aims to pack all of their usual power and performance into a smaller, more light-weight package. Shortening the traditional Wrangler by 22 inches, the 4Speed sports a carbon fiber hood, fender flares and a carbon fiber rear tub. A raked windshield, wider door openings and a custom built cage all lead to a design that makers dubbed "aggressively swept back."

Changing up the interior is easy with the companies innovative 'Adaptiv' technology. This is a modular system that lets owners swap out furniture components and create high varietal and person living spaces. The system lets you go from a five-person bedroom to a kitchen in just a matter of minutes.

BMW R NineT Aurora Concept Motorcycle
Turkish designer Mehmet Doruk Erdem has broken the mold with his new conceptual take on the NineT from BMW, one of the most popular bikes for designers to customize. This is one of the best variations that we've come across and truly breaks the mold from both a design and performance standpoint. The Aurora is still in concept form and was commissioned by GB Motobike of Instanbul, but with the amount of fanfare that its received, we wouldn't put it past them to release an early alpha of this design in the near future. You can check more of Mhemet's works on his Instagram linked at the end of this post. echo 'yo'; ?>
