The British folks at Jaguar brought the high-performance XFR-S Sportbrake at the Geneva Motor Show. The wagon version of the well-known sports car benefits from a powerful 5.0-liter V8 engine producing 550 horsepower and 680 Nm of torque.
With such resources, the 0-100 km/h sprint is possible in just 4,6 seconds with a top speed of 300 km/h. The company opted for an eight-speed automatic transmission which can is capable to keep up with all the power.
At the exterior, the model stands out thanks to new bumpers, side skirts, 20-inch alloy wheels with Pirelli tires, a carbon fiber rear diffuser and gloss black accents.
We might think of the fresh Juke as being one of the most attractive CUVs being launched so far at the present Geneva Motor Show.
With poor sales in Europe, the Nissan launched the latest Juke model, coming with some tweaks for its design and with some important mechanical changes as well.
At the exterior, the 2015 Nissan Juke comes with sportier look and a more refine rectangular shape. As for the lights found on the fenders, they are now formed into a “jagged point”.
The 2014 Geneva Motor Show that is the host of one of the greatest auto events in the world, is also displaying the 2015 Mercedes-Benz S-Class Coupe as its first public debut.
With the S-Class Coupe, the German base luxury car manufacturer is trying to launch a new era of futuristic design combined with technology ad performance.
The Mercedes-Benz S-Class Coupe looks pretty well live as it used to look in the leaked photos a couple of weeks ago.
The S-Class is the perfect combination of “gently flowing lines with a blunt front and rear.” As for the interior, the luxury car has a panoramic sunroof, along with fine leather and Magic Sky Control dimming tech.
Born out of the partnership between UPM and students from Helsinki Metropolia University of Applied Sciences, the UPM Biofore concept manages to capture attention not just by the weird shape but also by its very build.
It seems that every other concept where students are involved is a head turner, bringing a dash of “thinking outside the box” to the automotive industry.
Of, course, weird shaped cars have always been designed and some even got to the production phase, so the UPM Biofore’s shape isn’t anything too far fetched. But when we start talking about the way the vehicle was built, things change a little.
The Lexus RC F GT3 Racing Concept is finally launched at the 2014 Geneva Motor Show, ready to be put on the tracks sooner than we might have previously expected.
With this launch, Lexus wants everybody to know that the RC F Coupe is ready for the battle on the tracks, with more racecar features than its companion SC430.
The newly unveiled RC F GT3 Racing Concept looks extremely aggressive, promising to give everybody a hard time on the tracks, starting with the 2015 racing events in Japan or Europe.
The Maserati Italian base car has rolled out the Alfieri Concept at the 2014 Geneva Motor Show, the event also celebrating the car manufacturer`s 100th anniversary.
The Maserati Alfieri Concept is brought at the Geneva`s stands in metal, having a wheelbase shorter with 9.5 than the GranTursimo, but with the same 4.7-liter naturally-aspired V8 unit.
Perhaps a sad news for the Maserati`s fans, the Alfieri presented here at the Geneva is just a “door to the future of Maserati” concept car for the time being.
With pretty much any relevant car maker dabbling in the electric and hybrid domains, concepts sporting such drivetrains have stopped being that exciting.
Since the electric is now common sight, it is time for the fuel cell to make its stand and have its 15 minutes of fame.
Hyundai brought to Geneva Auto Show a concept powered by such a system. Called the Intrado, this model promises a lot even beyond this event. While not confirming it directly, many hints were given towards the Hyundai Intrado moving on to becoming a production vehicle.
Lamborghini decided to bring the new Huracan supercar at the Geneva Motor Show, an event which prove to be a good opportunity for the company to showcase the replacement model of the Gallardo.
The Italian sports car benefits from a 5.2-liter V10 engine producing 610 horsepower and 560 Nm of torque.
With such resources and some help from a seven-speed dual clutch transmission, the 0-100 km/h sprint is possible in just 3,2 seconds with a top speed of 325 km/h. Average fuel economy figures are rated at 12,5 liters/100 km or 18,8 mpg US.
With the Geneva Auto Show already open for the media, it was expected that the internet be flooded with many concepts and new models from all over the world.
The South Korean SsangYong also took this opportunity to display what will be their core model they will be using for their future growth.
I have to admit that every time I hear about SsangYong, I immediately picture a big, ugly SUV with absolutely no redeeming feature. And then here we have the XLV concept, a car that has as least one strong point, namely its aspect.
One of the more interesting models present at Geneva has to be the facelifted Nissan Juke, as it surely wasn’t a letdown.
Following a very cryptic teaser, the model is now unveiled, and it seems to build on the crazy design of the previous version.
The whole front end was redesigned, with a new grille installed and the weird headlights also sporting revised shape. The turn signal lights were moved on the side mirrors for that extra weird touch the car really needed. Going around to the rear not much seems to have happened, with the stop lights being just slightly reshaped and turned to LED.
