The proposed merger of Fiat Chrysler Automobile and Renault didn’t happen. But it inspired Australian auto insurance company Budget Direct to ponder the potential of such a marriage.

“Sadly, the agreement was called off,” Budget Direct Car Insurance said in a news release. “For a moment, however, us car fans were excited to learn about the potential crossover creations that could have emerged from the merger.

“To help lessen the blow of this failed merger, we have put together 9 concepts for the coolest collaborations that may have come out of the Fiat-Chrysler/Renault merger.”

Renault Talisman Widebody
Dacia Duster Trailhawk
Dodge Twingo
Renault Koleos Trackhawk
Renault Master Overland Campervan
Dodge Ram ZE (zero-emission electric pickup truck)
Alpins A100 SRT
Renault Megane Hellcat
