Geneva Motor Show
As the auto show season rolls on, MotorWeek continues to showcase some of the world’s most amazing cars. So grab your passports as we head to the latest automotive fashion show in Switzerland.
Some of the biggest headlines at the 2013 Geneva International Motor Show went to this reborn American classic, the 2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray Convertible; announced here in convertible form and slated for a late 2013 release. Fresh off a tease at the Detroit Auto Show and a Super Bowl appearance this year, the Mercedes-Benz CLA basked in the limelight. Looking to lure younger buyers, the miniature coupe sedan is set to hit U.S. dealers this fall.
Toyota announced the FT-86 Open concept, which will eventually give rise to a convertible variant of the über-successful Scion FR-S and Subaru BRZ.
Luxury leaders Bentley and Rolls-Royce continue to lock horns with one another; Bentley announced the new Flying Spur, a four-door variant of the Continental GT coupe…
…Rolls-Royce, on the other hand, unveiled the Wraith, a coupe version of their four-door Ghost.
Sure to be the new pin-ups of the automotive world, Ferrari, McLaren, and Lamborghini dropped jaws with some next-gen super cars.
Known as LaFerrari, this V-12 successor to the Enzo boasts over 900 horsepower from its 6.3 liter gasoline engine and electric motor combo.
McLaren’s P1 debuted with its twin-turbo V-8 and electric motor combo also putting out over 900 horsepower. Base price is a cool 1.15 million dollars.
And Lamborghini just couldn’t be outdone with their Veneno racer, a super-tuned version of the Aventador blurring to 60 in less than 3 seconds. Only three of them will be built, with a price tag just under 4 million dollars.
Other notable introductions included BMW’s 3-series Gran Turismo……a new and even hotter Volkswagen GTI…the track-ready Porsche 911 GT3…and the U.S. bound Alfa Romeo 4C rear-drive sportster.
