The 87th Geneva Motor show is underway and there are a lot of new and concept cars on display. From all electric autonomous vehicles, to patrol spitting monsters, like the Ferrari 812 Superfast, here are the best cars from Geneva Motor Show.
Tata Tamo Racemo
The TAMO Racemo is the first concept car from Tata under its new brand. A two door sports coupe, being small doesn't necessarily make it weak. It has a 1.2L three cylinder engine, which churns out 187 horsepower, says Tata. Of course, there’s lots left to weigh in, but initial numbers and the design look promising. Only 250 units will be manufactured and it’s available in the game, Forza Horizon 3, on the Xbox One, right now.
Aston Martin Valkyrie
The Aston Martin brand combines luxury and speed, but with the Valkyrie, the company is compromising on luxury for speed. The goal here is to challenge F1 cars, while remaining road legal. We already know that the car will be powered by a naturally aspirated 6.5L V12 engine that is currently being developed by Cosworth. There will be electric motors in place to achieve the magic power to weight ratio of 1:1.
Bentley EXP 12 Speed 6e concept
Bentley was present at the event with its all electric top down touring concept. It has inductive charging and the company believes its performance should be at par with its petrol powered cousins.
Mercedes-AMG GT sedan concept
The Mercedes-AMG GT has always been a two-door affair, but going by the latest concept, the next one may have four doors. However, it should have plenty of power, with the 4.0L V8, coupled with electric motors, which bring the output to 805 horsepower.
Infiniti Q60 Black S
Infiniti, which is Nissan’s luxury division, has been working with Renault’s F1 team to make a new fast sports coupe and this is what they came up with. The Q60 Black S brings the F1 KERS system to the roads and it will work in tandem with the 3.0L twin-turbo V8 engine, delivering 500 horsepower.
Pininfarina - Fittipaldi EF7
The EF7, which has an F1 association, is designed by Pininfarina and engineered by a HWA. It is the first car announcement of Fittipaldi Motors. The car will be powered by a 4.2L V8 engine and only 25 will be produced.
Emerson Fittipaldi was one of biggest names on the track in the 70s and has two F1 Championships, along with two Indy 500 races, under his belt.
Volkswagen unveiled its Sedric, autonomous car concept. While it may not look the best, the technology is seriously worth learning about. VW is aiming to achieve level 5 automated driving with this concept, which means no human interaction required.
Ferrari 812 Superfast
Ferrari unveiled its latest GT car this year. Named the Ferrari 812 Superfast, this is a replacement for the F12 Berlinetta. It has a 6.5L V12 naturally aspirated engine, producing 789 horsepower, making it the most powerful front-engine Ferrari ever.
Mclaren was present at the event with its new 720S super car. Priced at $2,84,975 (Rs. 1,90,22,000 approximately), the car is a beast, churning out 710 horsepower at 7,250rpm. This means it clocks 0-100Km/h in just 2.9 seconds and achieves a top speed of 342km/h. It also has basic luxuries, like leather seats, upholstered doors and carbon fibre, a lot of it.
This is the Lamborghini Huracan Performanté. According to photos and videos shared by Lamborghini, the Performanté is now the fastest car on the Nurburgring, beating the Porsche Spyder 918 by 5 seconds. It does so by improving almost every mechanical aspect and shedding weight over the original. It costs $274,390 (Rs. 1,83,23,765 approximately).
New Suzuki Swift
The Suzuki Swift is coming to India, but unfortunately, not this year. Reports suggest that the car will make its debut in early 2018 and will be available with localised parts, so chances are it may not look like the Japanese version. Also, Maruti may sell it via non-Nexa dealers, for larger reach.
