There’s a great irony about the Geneva Motor Show — one of the most significant auto shows in the world. It’s full of super expensive, scarcely attainable cars, but just getting there is enough to bankrupt you (now that the Swiss franc has shot up in value).
Still, looking at all those shiny new motors doesn’t cost anything, and the Palexpo venue is indeed a visual delight. It was a crazy show, it was a beautiful show, and it featured even more supercars than usual. Check out all our coverage below.
FERRARI 488 GTB
As if the outgoing 458 Italia wasn’t extreme enough, Ferrari has upped the ante with a revised version that features more speed, more acceleration, more horsepower, revised styling, and — here’s the big one — turbocharging.
LAMBORGHINI AVENTADOR LP750-4 SUPERVELOCE[embedyt]https://youtu.be/ql94IYUrwXY[/embedyt]
Not every car makes logical sense; in fact, sometimes, it’s the utter lack of logic in a vehicle that makes it so special. That’s a fair way of looking at the Aventador Superveloce, an even more extreme version of Lamborghini’s superlative flagship.
ASTON MARTIN VULCAN AND DBX
The cars that Aston Martin brought to Geneva this year really couldn’t have been more different. One is the most extreme supercar the company has ever produced; the other is an electric GT that looks to the future of mainstream luxury.
If Geneva was a kingdom, the Regera would most certainly be king (in fact, the name literally means “to reign” in Swedish). Christian von Koenigsegg’s latest hypercar features a symphony of gas and elecric motors delivering around 1,500 horespower, far more than any human could ever need.
BUGATTI VEYRON GRAND SPORT VITESSE LA FINALE
The very final Veyron, only the 450th ever made, has been sold, marking the conclusion of a glorious production run that’s given us the fastest supercar in the world.
BENTLEY EXP 10 SPEED 6
Some are calling Bentley’s curvy EXP 10 Speed 6 concept the winner among Volkswagen Group’s many announcements here in Geneva this year, if not the outright winner of the entire Geneva Motor Show. That may be a stretch — there are countless beautiful, nigh-unattainable cars here — but it’s still pretty easy to make the argument.
AUDI R8 E-TRON
Audi has been experimenting with electrics under its e-tron brand for several years, but its latest — a bespoke version of the second-generation R8 supercar — takes things to an entirely different level.
NANOFLOWCELL QUANT F
The Quant F is the latest concept from Liechtenstein’s nanoFlowCell, a wicked fast oddity with gullwing doors that’s powered by an unusual “flow cell” drivetrain. It’s ecologically friendly and quicker than some of the world’s best supercars, but the refueling infrastructure simply doesn’t exist today.
HONDA CIVIC TYPE R
Honda’s most mental Civic, the Type R, has finally been unveiled in Europe. With 305 horsepower routed down to the front wheels, you might shed a single tear to learn it won’t be coming to the U.S. If you wish hard enough, maybe Honda will bring it Stateside.
PORSCHE CAYMAN GT4
The Cayman GT4 might very well be the last car of its kind from the Germans … perhaps ever. If it’s not a driving enthusiast dream machine, we don’t know what is. Not only does this car indicate Germany’s dedication to driving dynamism, it also indicates a new Cayman is around the corner – all of which excites us very much.
