The annual Geneva Motor Show is underway for press and imagery from the floor continues to pour onto the web. First looks at anticipated vehicles like the Lamborghini Huracan, Rolls-Royce Ghost Series II, Ferrari California T and Koenigsegg Agera One: 1 have been warmly welcomed on sites and by social networks. Below you will find some of our favorite European production releases seen so far at the international auto show.
Photography from the Geneva Palexpo convention center continues to make its way back to our HQ. Stay tuned for regular imagery updates within this international auto show feature for the latest “oo’s” and “aah’s” from Geneva.
Successor to the ultra-successful Gallardo, the all-new Huracan (oo-rah-khan) LP 610-4 puts down 601hp and 413 lb-ft of torque via a both port- and direct-injection V10 engine. The seven-speed Lamborghini Double Clutch is equipped with launch control and is also designed for seamless street driving. The electronic AWD and electronically controlled Magnetorheological shocks drastically improve handling and large (15” f, 14” r) ceramic brakes scrub speed.
Calling something the world’s first “Megacar” is a mighty claim but with an estimated top speed of 273mph and undeniable supercar attributes the Swedish carmaker may have hit the nail on the head. The 1321hp Koenigsegg Agera One: 1 is a celebration of the manufacturer’s 20th anniversary. Supercar, Megacar, call it what you want but don't call it slow.
Weighing in at 2954 lb, you can imagine the blistering acceleration it achieves via a twin-turbo 5.0L V8. Even cooler, components such as the variable turbo housings and titanium exhaust are the result of 3D printing. No doubt this supercar will wow crowds at each international auto show it reaches.
The McLaren 650S Coupe and 650S Spyder supercar is designed to be a more aggressive version of the MP4-12C. Sporting a refreshed 6.8L twin-turbo V8 that produces 650hp, the 650S is not entirely new but an improvement on components used in the 12C. The nose resembles the McLaren P1 supercar while the rear is very “12C.” Fresh wheels, carbon brakes and a carbon rear wing separate it from its brethren.
Its goal is to unseat the Ferrari 458 Speciale. 0-62mph is reached in 3sec while stopping from that speed will take a claimed 100 ft. It will run the quarter-mile in 10.5sec at 139mph, according to the brand. At 18 lb lighter than the 12C with a focus on street-friendly comfort, there is a strong argument to spend a bit more for this 12C on steroids.
2015 Rolls-Royce Ghost Series II
Rolling in luxury your thing? Well, the latest Rolls-Royce Ghost Series II and its minor updates from the British automaker may be exactly what you are looking for. Plush interior, the same 565hp twin-turbo 6.6L V12 power, and updated gearbox and suspension ring in this Geneva international auto show unveil.
The Ghost Series II eight-speed gearbox will select and prepare the most comfort-conscious gears for you before reaching the road ahead thanks to its pairing with GPS-data. Suspension upgrades to the struts, steering gear and rear hydraulic axle bearings are also present. Minor exterior changes such as a re-sculpted hood and front bumper, and new headlights can be seen as well. Inside changes include redesigned seats, infotainment upgrades and more trim options. The short wheelbase Ghost Series II isn’t exactly subtle but that’s not the point when driving a Rolls-Royce.
