In this concept, debuting at the 2007 Detroit Auto Show, Mercedes-Benz chops the top off of its flagship S600 sedan to see what a convertible would look like. With the renewed popularity of convertibles, there's a good chance this car will see production.

This concept is based on the next generation of the Lancer Evo, launching in 2007. It represents a four-door, all-wheel-drive performance sedan. With Mitsubishi pushing its proven rally technology from the Evo series into other models, the Prototype-X could be a winner.

Could this be the new NSX? Acura claims this concept represents a future exotic sports car. It has similar design cues to the Advanced Sedan Concept that Acura showed off at the Los Angeles Auto Show, but fortunately it doesn't look as ugly.
