Geneva Motor Show 2012

The Prindiville's Lamborghini Aventador and Aventador J versions are at top. The originals...

Here's something you don't see every day - it's a concept based on a concept, and it comes from London coachbuilder Prindiville. Prindiville's eight-only Limited Edition Lamborghini Aventador is already on sale, and it's so keen to get its hands on the Aventador J Concept which Lamborghini showed in Geneva in March, that it has released this concept based on the original concept. Power is up from 700 to 805 bhp, but every panel, from the front bumper to the rear diffuser and rear wing is reshaped and lightened. Prindiville claims its J will sprint from 0 to 62 mph (100 km/h) in around 2.5 seconds, which would make it one of the fastest four-wheelers on public roads anywhere.  Read More

EDAG has extended its Light Car electric concept range with the addition of the Light Car ...

Here's one from this year's International Geneva Motor Show you may have overlooked. We first caught a whiff of EDAG's Light Car concept in the September of 2009, when the open source project was in preliminary development. At Geneva this year, EDAG unveiled the third member of what's fast becoming a full range of all-electric Light Cars: the EDAG Light Car - Sharing. Hmm. Let's call it the LC-S for short. A markedly different animal to the Light Cars before it, the LC-S is aimed at inner-city car hire fleets.  Read More

Hollywood isn’t the only industry fascinated with remakes, reimagining and sequels these days. The motor world has its share of revivals and updates too. Case in point, Italian car maker Alfa Romeo and the Milan-based coachbuilding firm Carrozzeria Touring have teamed to unveil their latest collaboration: the Alfa Romeo Disco Volante 2012. Created as part of Alfa Romeo's centenary celebration, the Disco Volante 2012 dips back into the past to draw inspiration from one of the true classics of 20th century motoring, the 1952 Alfa Romeo C52 Disco Volante. However, where the original was a concept series with a run of only four, the 2012 version will be offered for sale later this year as a very limited series two-seater coupé that, in the words of Alfa Romeo, blend the ingredients of “innovation, emotion and aerodynamic properties into a timeless and essential shape”.  Read More

The Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Grand Sport Vitesse will be limited to 233 mph

Whether you think the Bugatti Veyron is the pinnacle of sports car development or agree with Professor Gordon Murray that it's the "most pointless exercise on the planet," we all somehow seem drawn to the name and its continuing deeds. This week saw the unveiling of another Bugatti milestone, the 1200 bhp Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Grand Sport Vitesse - the roadster version of the world's fastest production car is also the world's fastest roadster at 255 mph. Great picture library of this quite arresting automobile.  Read More

If you're going to design a sports car, you could do worse than going back to the classics and AC Cars has done just that with the unveiling of its Zagato AC 378 GT at the Geneva Motor Show. It's a rolling tribute to not only 111 years of the AC Cars marque, but also its Anglo-Italian heritage and its long relationship with the Zagato design group going back to the AC Ace Zagato of 1957. The supercar, which will be sold in the UK for GBP89,990 (approx US$140,870) and Germany for EUR109,990 (US$144,970), is also part of AC Cars' relaunch on the European market as a specialized car maker after a decade of false starts.  Read More

Already one the world's fastest cars, the Koenigsegg Agera R has been reworked for the 2013 model year, raising peak horsepower from 1115 to 1140 bhp, giving it a top speed of 440 km/h (273.4 mph) - Koenigsegg intends to prove it sometime soon. The world's fastest production car is the Bugatti Veyron Super Sport at 431 km/h. Lots of new features in the new car.  Read More

Much of Nissan's design work was in the front

Nissan unveiled its new Hi-Cross Concept at the Geneva Motor Show this week. It's unclear if the concept will become an actual model - or if Nissan even really has room for another crossover - but the car does show a potential design direction for future models. It also shows how seven people and a hybrid powertrain can fit neatly into a relatively small crossover.  Read More

The Mercedes Vito E-Cell will be available around Europe in May

It may not be the sexiest electric vehicle on display at the 2012 Geneva Motor Show, but the Mercedes-Benz Vito E-Cell is definitely one of the hardest working. The MPV carries up to seven passengers without blowing a puff of tailpipe smoke. Mercedes used the show to present a transparent model of the upcoming van.  Read More
