Geneva Auto Show

The 82nd Geneva Auto Show is currently going on right now, and if the most cutting edge automobiles are your thing, it’s not something to be missed! Collectors of these modern marvels come from all corners of the globe to see the newest, most exciting advancements happening with cars. It is the world’s largest, and grandest auto show of the entire year. As far as vehicles go, it’s when concepts become unveiled, cars of the future get introduced, debuts happen, and production cars are featured. The highlights include excellent offerings from innovators such as Bentley, Porsche, and Lamborghini, always keeping things electrifying, and their connoisseurs titillated.  

Lamoborghini debuted their Aventador J, an unprecedented sports car of epic power and engineering dynamics. This beauty is not a prototype, and not a concept; it’s fully complete, and only one was created. It has also already been sold, for the unimaginable price of 2.1 million Euros. Based on an earlier model, every possible feature was tweaked to ensure the lightest weight, including a soft, supple fabric known as “carbonskin” used for the seats. With a maximum capable speed of 186 miles per hour, 700 horsepower, a 6.5-liter V12 engine, designed without a roof or windshield. There is no climate control, and definitely no need for a navigational system, this car is not about bells and whistles by any means. For those who crave speed and power, it is the ultimate grownup toy.       

Bugatti debuted their stunning Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse, emphasizing it’s capacity for intense speeds, as the word “vitesse” is speed in French. This car boasts incredible speeds that can hit 267 miles per hour, among the fastest of any autos around. It is a convertible stealth with 1,200-horsepower, and a mind blowing  8.0 liter, quad-turbocharged W16 engine. In short, it is extremely powerful and built for speed. If you are in the market for such a machine, the price has not yet been listed, but is expected to estimate around $2 million!

Bentley’s freshly unveiled SUV, the EXP 9 F is what SUV dreams are made of. Designed to out-perform, out-speed, and simply outdo any other SUV available, it carries distinctly Bentley features. The signature front grille and round headlamps are Bentley design mainstays. The W12 engine is a 6.0-liter, with twin-turbocharged, also available is the 4.0 liter twin-turbocharged V8 engine version. Another option is a hybrid drivetrain available on the 8-speed AWD models. And, as expected with all Bentley vehicles, the gorgeous details continue inside as well. Diamond-quilted leather mimicking traditional British hunting jackets, floor mats of wool and silk, and a rear champagne cooler that holds glasses, beneath the armrest are just a few of the touches that keep the luxury at the highest level. Definitely not your ordinary SUV!
