Geneva Motor Show 2019
was no doubt an incredible show, featuring lots of incredible cars around the
world like Koenigsegg Jesko, Ferrari F8 Tributo, and Aston Martin AM-RB 003. And so with no
further ado, let’s check out the top 10 cars of Geneva Motor Show 2019!
This exclusive “one-off”
Bugatti is homage to the classic Type
57SC Atlantic, a car built by Ettore
Bugatti’s eldest son – Jean Bugatti himself.
Despite the car was lost during the Second World War, its aesthetic spirit
still passes on from generations to generations. Aside from that, this
all-black Atlantic homage is also a beast in every way possible, featuring a
crazy powerhouse of 1,500 horsepower and 1,180 lb-ft of torque. And as we
mentioned, this is the “one-off”
exclusive Bugatti, which was already bought by a mysterious “Bugatti enthusiast” at the price of $19
million after taxes ($12.5 million base price).
undoubtedly one of the leading companies in automobile industry. Each of their creations
always brings something new to the table and thus, all of them are insane monsters
in their own right. And in Geneva Motor Show 2019, Koenigsegg has introduced their
next step of evolution: the Koenigsegg
Jesko. This insane megacar is said to be able the new successor of the Agera RS as a track-focused, road-legal
car with extreme performance. It is even speculated to be capable of surpassing
300-mph of top speed! In terms of the name “Jesko”,
it actually comes from Christian von
Koenigsegg’s father – Jesko von
Koenigsegg who has dedicated all of his wealth and effort to support his
One of Aston Martin’s
most anticipated creations is the Aston
Martin Valkyrie – Aston Martin’s first hypercar with insane performance.
But just when we thought that was the only thing Aston Martin brought on the
table, the company revealed their next trump card: Aston Martin AM-RB 003 which is expected to be a rival to the likes
of McLaren Senna. Judging by its
design, we can clearly see a strong resemblance to the Valkyrie. And although
the AM-RB 003 will not be as extreme as the Valkyrie, it is still promised to
be one of the fastest cars in the market. With the reveal of Aston Martin Valkyrie, AM-RB 003, and the upcoming Vanquish Vision, Aston Martin is
definitely on a roll this year and we can’t wait to see these “god-like beings” in action.
Despite having a really impressive visual design, Ferrari F8
Tributo is actually not a brand new car but rather, a replacement / an upgrade
to the 488 GTB. But do not let that disappoints you, not only the F8 Tributo
has a fresher facelift; it actually gets various major upgrades underneath that
hood. And what about the name “F8 Tributo”?
It is in fact a tribute to the powerful 3.9-litre V-8 engine.
Those who are into automobile industry definitely know the
name “Pininfarina” – the world’s most
famous automobile design company. Now, they officially jump into the automobile
manufacture business by introducing their new branch: Automobili Pininfarina GmbH. And in Geneva Motor Show this year,
they finally revealed their very first work: “The World’s First Pure Electric Luxury Hyper GT” – Pininfarina Battista. Right off the
bat, we have to admire how sleek and elegant the design for Pininfarina Battista
is. In addition, it is also expected to possess a tremendous performance with 1,900
horsepower, 1,696 lb-ft of torques, and especially the devilish 0-62mph acceleration
around 2 seconds! An electric hypercar comes from a famous design company, let
us wait and see how it goes in the future.
Electric car is gradually becoming more and more popular, and
unsurprisingly, it will become the new trend of future car in 2020s. As we can
see within the past few years, many companies are already trying to come up
with their own EV car design. Audi
also does not miss this opportunity and thus, comes the new Audi Q4 e-Tron. As Audi claimed, the Q4
e-Tron can cover quite a long range of over 280 miles’ (or 450km). And also, it
can recharge to 80% in just 30 minutes. Interior-wise, the Q4 e-Tron is expected
to have lots of room for passengers inside, as well as modern design with
touchscreen and infotainment screen.
Ginetta may not be
a well-known name for many people, but the story will be different this year as
the company introducing a brand new creation called Ginetta Akula. The car looks extremely aggressive, especially when
we look at it upfront. Yet despite that aggressive look, this car is designed
to be a practical front/mid-engined coupé featuring an in-house engine and
gearbox developed by Ginetta themselves. It can produce 600 horsepower and 520
lb-ft of torque, and on top of all, it can reach 200mph of top speed. There
will only be around 30-50 units built per year and the first deliveries are
scheduled for early 2020.
Continuing the trend of electric car, Honda continues to reveal their latest concept for future EV: Honda E Prototype. Frankly speaking,
this cute EV already looks ready to steal the Westerners’ hearts. It looks
sleek, compact, and highly practical. Coming inside, the car looks even more
impressive especially with its four massive digital displays. While the Honda E
Prototype may look too good to be true, given Honda’s good track record of
bringing concept car to life, we can bet to see the Honda E Prototype real soon
the near future.
Like Ginetta, Rimac Automobili may not be that
well-known among automobile industry. However, their reputation is definitely
bound to change when they reveal their latest creation: Rimac C2. In terms of raw power alone, Rimac C2 already astounds
many people with its absurd figures of 1,888 horsepower and 1,696 lb-ft of
torque. Performance-wise, this electric hypercar can reach the max speed of 256
mph, and even crazier, it is said to be able to hit 60mph in just 1.85 second!
Finally to add more value to this already insane package, it will feature Level
4 autonomous capability, which means it can drive itself. Honestly speaking, we
don’t know how Rimac can pull this off but definitely, seeing the Rimac C2 in
action will definitely be a sight to behold.
Being dubbed as the world’s first “hyper-SUV”, GFG Style Kangaroo
is a peculiar, yet exciting car at the same time. On the surface, it follows
similar concept design of many other supercars like the 2-seater design, wide
and low-slung, and the 22-inch wheels. That said, it features a special hydraulic
suspension in which it can help the car switch between sports car and
off-roader mode with various ride heights from 5.5 inches in “Racing” mode to 10.2 inches in
“Off-Road” mode. For this
reason, the Kangaroo can drive on almost all types of surface like pavement,
mud, or snow. Its interior also features some interesting elements, notably the
3 digital screens: an ultra-wide screen on top of the dash which serves as the
rear-view mirror, a digital instrument cluster, and a huge center-mounted infotainment
screen. Being in an unique category on its own, the GFG Style Kangaroo has
undoubtedly piqued many people’s interest and it can possibly be a new trend in
And that’s it folks!
