Geneva Motor Show: 15 Rides to Expect
We’re more than ready for this year’s Geneva Motor Show. And that’s good news, because it seems like every automaker has pulled something out from under a sheet and prepared to show it off. From the speed demons to the city dwellers, and from the supercars to the not-so-super-cars, here’s what you can expect at the 2014 Geneva Motor Show:
ABT Volkswagen Golf VII R
ABT transformed a standard Golf R into a 370 horsepower pocket rocket. We like this a lot.
Audi S1 Sportback
Another pocket rocket — Audi revived the S1 nameplate for Geneva. This hot hatch comes with 230 horsepower from a turbocharged 4-cylinder engine. And of course it has all-wheel drive.
A car with the heart of a Corvette and the face of a supermodel. The AF8 is the latest ride to come from supercar manufacturer Arash out of the UK.
Ferrari California T
Ferrari’s convertible California will get a fresher face when it hits the floor in Geneva. As the name suggests, it will use turbocharging and a downsized V8 to deliver the same power with improved efficiency.
The Ford Focus gets a new face and a Wagon variant (aka Turnier) for Geneva.
Jaguar XFR-S Sportbrake
Just one of the many wagons waiting to make its debut in Geneva, the supercharged XFR-S Sportbrake comes fully loaded with 545-horsepower.
Koenigsegg Agera One:1
As one of its biggest reveals to date, Koenigsegg is unveiling its most powerful car ever built. The Agera One:1 sports a perfect 1:1 power-to-weight ratio with its 1,341 horsepower and 1,341 kg curb weight.
Lexus RC F GT3 Concept
Lexus is ready to go racing with its new RC F — and it looks good sporting a GT3 body kit. Under the hood is a snarling V8 good for 540 horsepower.
The Mazda2 hatchback will be the next model to receive the new "Kodo" design language. It will be previewed here by the Hazumi concept.
P1 in the front, 12C in the back — the McLaren 650S is a mixture of the automaker’s sporty coupes. The 650S comes with 641 horsepower and even a return of 24 MPG in Europe.
Range Rover Evoque Autobiography Dynamic
Range Rover's Evoque gets some minor aesthetic enhancements, including new paint schemes and a 281-horsepower engine.
Rinspeed XchangE Concept
Swiss tuning house Rinspeed is ready to unveil their concept for an autonomous mobile office. Based on a Tesla Model S, Rinspeed hopes the XchangE will change the way we work and
Vauxhall Astra VXR Extreme
Vauxhall’s most Extreme Astra yet is set to make its Geneva debut later this week. 300 horses will come from the turbocharged 4-cylinder engine.
Volkswagen Golf GTE
Going green(er), the Volkswagen GTE electric hatchback will have the same horsepower, and same fun found in the standard GTI. Sign us up.
Volvo Concept Estate
Volvo's trifecta of sexy concepts comes full-circle with the gorgeous Concept Estate. A wagon-ized version of the Concept Coupe we saw late last year, this is a Wagon we can get behind.
