BMW marked its centenary this month with the unveiling of the Vision Next 100 – a shape-shifting look at where the German automaker thinks the next century will take it. But behind that futuristic showpiece is a rich history of automotive ingenuity. Join us as we take a look at some of the cars that shaped BMW over its 100 year history.Read More
Italdesign Giugiaro has had a very nice string of Geneva show cars – last year's GEA autonomous concept was preceded by 2014's Clipper electric MPV, which came a year after the 2013 Parcour off-road sports coupe (which gave way to the Audi Nanuk Quattro later that year). After that intriguing, diverse trio, Italdesign could have taken Geneva 2016 off without a word of criticism. But instead, the Italian design house once again debuted one of the more interesting concepts of the show. The all-new GTZero is Italdesign's vision of a modular, all-electric grand tourer packed with innovation.
The big stars of this year's Geneva Motor Show are clearly the supercars, but concept cars are proving a memorable supporting cast. In addition to new concepts and design studies from the big manufacturers, Geneva is also the place to find debuts from Italian design houses and design schools. This year's show has plenty of concepts to see, from 4x4 adventure minivans, to classically influenced roadsters, to cutting edge autonomous cars, on to hydrogen-powered track cars. Read More
Now that Rimac has a production car ready to go, there seems to be no holding it back. It's put together the most electrifying booth in Geneva, quite literally speaking. Next to the 1,088-hp Concept One supercar is the even faster, more powerful Concept S, the One's "evil twin," along with a matching, unleashed version of the Greyp G12S electric bike. All in all, close to 2,500 horses with current-spiked manes are dashing around Rimac's booth.
Mitsubishi plans to get a little outdoorsy at this year's Geneva Motor Show, where it will debut two matching Geoseek concepts. The L200 Geoseek pickup and ASX Geoseek crossover wear equipment and styling inspired by the great outdoors and will bring a hint of fresh air and wide open spaces into the auto-packed Palexpo convention center.
Vauxhall's recently unveiled GT Concept is something of looker, with its smooth, unbroken exterior, sleek black and grey styling and flashes of red highlighting. The story doesn't stop there, though. A first look at the car's interior reveals a high-tech, buttonless interface that is just as slick.Read More
It's been a few years since turbine-equipped electric supercars were in vogue, but they're making a semi-comeback at the Geneva Motor Show. Beijing-based Techrules will reveal a 1,030-bhp (768 kW) electric supercar concept that uses a range-extending turbine to roll its tires for more than 1,200 miles per fill-up. We're taking those numbers with a shaker of salt, but the company's turbine tech should definitely make for an interesting topic at the show.
Having announced plans in 2012 to relaunch the Alpine marque, Renault has today made good on its word. The just-unveiled Alpine Vision show car is a preview of a production version that will go on sale next year. The two-seater coupé will accelerate to 100 km/h (62 mph) from a standstill in under 4.5 seconds.Read More
Nissan isn't letting the snow and cold get it down this year. It's having almost as much fun with winter as a kid on a snow day. It's calling it Warrior Winter, and just weeks after revealing the Rogue Warrior and X-Trail Bobsleigh, it's unleashing a trio of snow-shredding crossovers on Chicago. The new, snow-hungry Pathfinder and Murano Winter Warriors give the Rogue some backup.
At this year's Geneva Motor Show, Citroën will focus much of its attention on the launch of its new SpaceTourer minivan, but it'll also meet its odd-ball concept car quota with the SpaceTourer Hyphen. Designed to explore the middle ground between MPV and SUV, the Hyphen combines a high-clearance 4WD build with a colorful, pop music-inspired motif.Read More
