Mighty Lister Chevrolet and the latest concepts from Auto Shanghai ...

Of Brian Lister's many great creations none quite combine sheer elegance and brute force better than the Lister Costin Chevrolet built in 1959. As the name suggests, this fabulous machine combines the flowing lines of the new-for-1959 Lister body styled by Frank Costing with a mighty Chevrolet small-block V8. These cars were mainly raced in the United States and gave far more exotic machinery a proper run for their money. Today we feature three different examples that are still regularly raced, which include the very first Costin-bodied Lister and one that had originally been earmarked for a Maserati 450S V8 engine.
At this week's Auto Shanghai, concept cars take centre stage and all offer a glimpse into the future. The furthest look ahead is provided by the Renault R.S. 2027 Vision, which has been created to celebrate the 40th anniversary of Renault's involvement in Formula 1 and to give an idea what a Grand Prix car could look like in a decade.
Far less outlandish are the Audi e-tron Sportback, Mercedes-Benz Concept A Sedan and the Volkswagen I.D. Crozz, all three of which should form the basis of production models in the near future.
