For decades, the Geneva International Motor Show has been the place where cutting edge designs, one-off concept cars, special edition production variants of existing models and the elite of the automotive world have converged. This year will be no different, and as we’ve seen from the past two months, auto manufacturers are ready to stun. Having seen the released teaser videos of flashing headlights in the dark, new engines roaring and names of new vehicles to appear March 3, we’ve compiled a list of the reveals to expect.
Koenigsegg, the Swedish super and hypercar company known for pushing the boundary of possibility, is introducing the Regera. A new megacar, the Regera is expected to have over 700 hp at its disposal and a rather low curb weight. It’s also supposed to be the fastest accelerating, most powerful road car ever built. Considering its name, which translates from Swedish to “reign,” and the brand’s ability to deliver on promises, there is ample reason to be excited.
In a continuation of its Agera line, Koenigsegg is upping its performance figures in a seemingly impossible manner. The new RS, not pictured in any of its press releases, is said to be surpassing the Agera R’s insane 1,140 hp and 273 mph top speed. We anticipate its arrival as much as you.
Morgan, endowed with the ability to combine old world English style with the modern, has teased a tantalizing video featuring what sounds like an earth-shattering V8 and some fantastic upholstery. Aside from that, we don’t know what else to expect, but it will be interesting, as the company has a propensity for straying from the average.
On Feb. 20, a video of the new Aston Martin Vulcan emerged, featuring the 7.0 liter V12 barking in the dark. Several days later, a press release announced that the pictured Vulcan would be producing north of 811 hp, in what we believe will be a thrilling and exquisitely crafted coupe.
The new 2016 Audi R8 will be gracing the showroom floor in its new second-generation livery. Featuring more angular and aggressive styling in line with the marque’s aesthetic, the R8 will be available in a V10 version with 540 hp or a V10 plus with 610 hp and a boasted 0-60 time of 3.2 seconds.
Pictures of the Mercedes-AMG GT3 were leaked and confirmed in a Feb. 12 press release featuring a bare-bones version of the brand’s AMG coupe with flared fenders, utilitarian cockpit and accentuated aerodynamics in keeping with the GT3 racing class.
Lotus has revamped the Evora model with a new addition to their lineup. The Lotus Evora 400 is the most powerful and fastest production model car the British marque has ever created.
In a Feb. 25 press release, McLaren announced the arrival of the new McLaren 675LT, the lightest and most powerful McLaren to join their current production cars, boasting a 0-60 mph time of 2.9 seconds. Check out the link for details.
In honor of the Mclaren F1 GTR, the new P1 GTR we’ll be seeing in Geneva will be dressed in the black and yellow livery of the 1995 24 Hour of Le Mans winner. We’ve seen the video of it on the track and can’t wait to see it in detail.
Mansory also released their interpretation of the Lamborghini Huracan in their Mansory Huracan. Widened and draped in carbon fiber, it is a lighter and darker supercar. We can’t wait to see more of the Huracan’s detail work as the show progresses.
Scuderia Cameron Glickenhaus
In the mission to improve the Ferrari P 3 / 4, Scuderia Cameron Glickenhaus released a video of their SCG 003 Dec. 17, 2014 as it tooled around their test track. The car’s two variants will be fully unveiled in Geneva, the Stradale version’s livery black and carbon fiber, and the yellow, white and black Competizione. With hints of the Ferrari F40 and La Ferrari’s design, it’s got us hooked.
A recent video Lamborghini teased points to a release of their “most reactive car,” dominated by a slashing “S” in its background. We speculate that an Aventador SV may be in the works, but only time will tell.
Ferrari, as we saw in a Feb. 3 press release, will be introducing the new 488 GTB officially in Geneva in the wake of much anticipation. Featuring a 3.8 liter V8 and a turbocharger, the 488 GTB has already been previewed to 800 fortunate clients in Maranello Feb. 19.
Of course, many other cars will be on display at the 2015 Geneva International Motor Show. So, be sure to stay with us for all of the happenings in Geneva come March 3.
