There's a whole lot more that went down at Franfurt despite the Mercedes-AMG Project One. These are the best of the rest - and the worst of what remained.
Frankfurt was filled to the brim with future concepts and prospects, some more exciting than others. Some were pretty and some were ugly. Some never got the love they deserved and some got too much. So, this here is a quick little feature on some of those you never saw, which also need their time in the spotlight.
1. Audi Aicon Concept
Audi, unusually for this decade, have unveiled something that looks relatively exciting and is named after Sengalese rapper-cum-singer, Akon. It is called the Aikon - a driverless concept without any controls, and a detachable drone to guide you to your front door on those very dark nights. Why? Because for the past ten thousand years, humans have really struggled to find their front doors and not even the invention of the gas lamp, the lighter, the torch, the street light, the porch light, the fiery caveman stick, modern matches, the light of cell phone's screen, the light of cell phone's torch, a key chain that is a mini torch, a red laser, a blue laser, an iPad with a big bright screen, a security light or even your car lights shone in the right direction, have solved that inconvenient conundrum. But, fear no more. Aikon is here with its revolutionary light-guiding drone.
We suppose though that that is at least more exciting than yet another R8, which by the way - can you actually handle this - was also unveiled. It now sports rear wheel drive and red stripe.
Give me a break, Audi. Seriously.
