Here are the 10 best cars of the 2018 Geneva Motor Show
The Geneva Motor Show is one of the biggest events on the motoring calendar. We’ve picked out 10 of the best cars to come from this year’s event
So the covers have been lifted, the show cars have been rolled out and the industry bosses have finished their speeches – ending the first press day of the 2018 Geneva Motor Show. It’s been a stellar event, jam-packed with new reveals, cutting-edge concepts and visions of the future of motoring.
We’ve been hoofing it around the halls, and have worked out the 10 best cars to come out of this year’s show – and here they are.
Ferrari 488 Pista
It’s 90 kilograms lighter than the car upon which it is based, and that’s down to the use of carbon-fibre on the roof, bumpers and rear spoiler.
Toyota GR Supra Concept
Built in collaboration with BMW, the new Supra isn’t destined to arrive until next year – though this concept is easily one of the most impressive of the entire show.
Range Rover SV Coupe
Inside, there are four dedicated seats finished in quilted leather, and the entire car will be hand-assembled by the Special Vehicle Operations team who head up the company’s bespoke projects.
Mercedes-AMG GT 4-Door Coupe
All versions get 4Matic+ all-wheel-drive, with power sent to the wheels via a nine-speed automatic gearbox providing fast, seamless gear changes.
BMW Concept M8 Gran Coupe
BMW has already confirmed that the regular 8 Series will be entering production in 2019, and a performance-orientated version will follow as part of that range.
Porsche Mission E Cross Turismo
Additional protection has been applied to the wheel arches and door sills, meaning that the Mission E Cross Turismo should be a little more adept at travelling on the rough stuff than the regular Mission E Concept.
Aston Martin Lagonda Vision Concept
The Vision Concept has been designed with autonomy in mind, so the steering wheel can retract fully to give the best possible cabin space while the vehicle drives itself.
Lamborghini Huracan Performante Spyder
It’ll crack the sprint from 0-60mph in 2.9 seconds, while the roof takes just 17 seconds to open or close at speeds of up to 30mph.
Inside, the cabin has been significantly upgraded, with a large eight-inch colour touchscreen fitted as standard, along with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto on higher-spec models.
McLaren Senna GTR Concept
It’s powered by the same 4.0-litre twin-turbocharged engine found in the road car, and has a claimed 814bhp. Just 75 examples are to be built when the car heads to production next year.
