If you didn’t have the chance to attend the Geneva Motor Show, we have put together a small rundown of the most exciting cars seen at the show. Some are futuristic and have very interesting characteristics and some are car lovers’ favorites, with great design, high-quality craftsmanship and amazing performances.
Here are some of the cars that caught our attention at the Geneva Motor Show!
Lotus Evora 400
British manufacturer Lotus, which has been fairly quiet with new releases recently, presented a new edition of the Evora. The more powerful version is equipped with a V6 3.5-liter supercharged, producing 400 hp and 302 lb-ft of torque. This power will be transmitted to the rear wheels through a manual or automatic 6-speed transmission. The Evora 400 will do the 0-100 km / h in 4.2 seconds and reach a top speed of 300 km / h. It will be available in Europe in August and later in North America as the 2016 model.
QUANTINO by nano Flowcell
The nano FLOWCELL company, located in Schaan, Liechtenstein, presented two concept cars at the show this year. The most interesting, called “QUANTiNO” is meant as a mass produced, concept car. This four-seater coupe is equipped with four electric motors producing a total of 136hp and AWD. The data provided on the exact mode of operation of the engine, by nano FLOWCELL themselves, is not very precise. We know it will work with two ionic liquids (one with a positive charge and the other with a negative charge), and that it will not issue any harmful emitions. According to the manufacturer, it be will easily be filled up and the cost of one full tank should be very competitive. Concerning autonomy, nano FLOWCELL announced that “QUANTiNO” will be able to make nearly 1,000 km on a single tank or with 350 liters of liquid. Will this car ever sell? Only the future will tell.
Ford Focus RS 2016
Ford is really on a roll when it comes to performance cars. After the Mustang, the F-150 and Ford GT, it is now the turn of the Focus to get made in a supercharged version. Ford has already been offering the Focus ST for some time, but the Focus RS is a very different beast. The small bomb is equipped of a 4-cylinder turbocharged 2.3-liter, the same as the Mustang, producing over 315 hp and 320 lb-ft of torque. It will be equipped with a manual 6-speed transmission and all-wheel drive. The Focus RS will be equipped with alloy wheels 19-inch and high-performance tires the Michelin Pilot Super Sport. The Focus RS will be available in Ford dealerships in North Aemrica in early 2016.
2016 Hyundai Tucson
Hyundai used the showcase occasion offered by the Geneva Motor Show to present the new Tucson. With more fluid lines which very much recall those of the new Sonata, the style of the new Tucso is much more upscale. The good news is the addition of a plug-in hybrid and a hybrid version to Hyundai’s car rooster. The Plug-in version of the Tucson has an all-electric range of up to 50km, which is rather interesting for a compact SUV. Unfortunately, there is currently no plan to commercialize hybrid versions of Tucson in North America.
Ferrari 488 GTB
We could not talk about the Geneva show without mentioning the new beauty made by the Italian manufacturer, Ferrari. While the new fireball as the same good looks and beautiful lines as the Ferrari 458 Italia, the engine that drives this beast is very different. This is a V8 twin-turbocharged 3.9 liter, 670ch and 560 lb-ft of torque. Power is transmitted to the rear wheels thanks to an automatic transmission, dual gears and seven reports. This engine allows the 488 GTB from 0-100 km / h in 3 seconds, the 0-200 km / h in 8.3 seconds and reaches a top speed of 330 km / h. The Ferrari 488 GTB will be available in the upcoming months. If you are interested, start putting a few dollars aside right now. This car has been one of the highlights of the Geneva Motor Show.
These are just some of the amazing cars we had the chance to see at the Geneva Motor Show. We’re already excited for the 2016 edition! We hope to see you there!
