Bugatti has unveiled the new Bugatti Chiron Sport at the Geneva Motor Show. Apart from a liberal use of carbon fiber, the supercar has also received a handling package. The package includes a stiffer suspension and modified steering, accessed by turning on the car’s “Handling Mode”. There is however, no change in output over the standard model (if any model of the Chiron may be considered ‘standard’). The 8.0-liter W-16 still pumps out the same massive 1,479 hp and 1,180 lb-ft of torque.
Aston Martin has unveiled its brand new Vulcan supercar at the Geneva Motor Show. Now that is not just a regular car, it is a thoroughbred packed with top of the line automobile technology that probably well qualifies to demand your allegiance. Aston is going to build only 24 units of this car, each priced in the range of $2.3 million.
Maserati Alfieri is a concept cooked up to celebrate a hundred years of the brand. The centenary concept, which by all accounts seems to be headed for production, comes with a sleek look that is pleasing to the eyes. The car carries the name of Alfieri Maserati, a prominent automotive engineer in his time, and one of the founders of the marque.
McLaren brought its brand new supercar to the Geneva Motor Show. The 650S is placed right above the McLaren 12C in the marque’s lineup, and comes in the flavors of a coupe and a spider. The supercar is powered by McLaren’s M838T twin-turbo V8 engine that pumps out 641 hp. It has a top speed of 204mph, doing a zero to 62mph run in just three seconds. Both versions, the coupe, and the hardtop convertible, will go on sale this spring.
Geneva Motor Show is about to start, which means some of the sexiest cars are getting ready to make an appearance. On the list is the new offering in the form of Koenigsegg One:1. We’d say this is one sweet supercar, however the Swedish marque would like to set aside that label and instead call the One:1 the “world’s first megacar.”
Presented at the Geneva Motor Show, the Pininfarina Sergio concept takes its name from veteran designer Sergio Pininfarina, to whom many iconic Ferrari’s owe their looks. The concept is a homage to the vision of the remarkable designer who passed away in July last year.
Ferrari’s offering for the Geneva Motor Show this year is the very potent LaFerrari. They call it a successor to the venerable Enzo and to put it in the same class and category, the LaFerrari’s carbon fiber covered body holds a 6.3-liter V12 engine that rolls out a massive 789hp. But hey, the heading right there says there’s 950 horses in there, well, that’s because there’s an electric motor involved in the action that pumps out the remaining 161hp.
Another splattering of sexy from the Geneva Motor Show, the Giugiaro Brivido Concept is a hybrid running on a supercharged 3.0-l V6 pumping out 360hp working with an electric motor and mated to an 8-speed automatic gearbox. Brivido goes from zero to 60 mph in 5.8 seconds and can reach a top speed of 171 mph. Quite impressive, but lets face it, our materialistic leanings go towards looking at its beautiful body with eyes full of lust.
Displayed at the Geneva Motor Show, the Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse is the roadster version of the Veyron Super Sport. The topless version gets its power from the same 8.0-liter W16 engine employing four turbochargers to drop 1,184bhp of raw power and 1106 lb-ft of torque.
With all the ongoing automobile glory at the Geneva Motor Show, famous Italian coachbuilders Bertone also decided to chip in the amazing car lineup with the Nuccio Concept. The concept car is a homage to the company’s founder, Giovanni Bertone and takes its name from his nickname. Power for the sleek, futuristic looking concept comes from a 4.3-liter V8 chipping out an impressive 480hp.
