The Geneva Motor show has always a good platform for manufacturing giants to showcase new innovations and product launches. This year is no different, so here's our list of the launches that we are really looking forward to.
Ferrari 488 Pista
Ferrari gave the world a sneak preview of the 488 Pista recently and from the response it has received there’s no doubt that it's going to be a hypercar killer on the track. Sharing a lot of components with its race-spec cousin the 488 GTE, it is 90kg lighter then current 488 GTB and has a bump in power figures from 659bhp to 710bhp. The Pista comes with some serious tech such as Inconel exhaust manifolds, lightweight crankshaft and flywheel, titanium con rods and a carbon-fibre intake.
Porsche 911 GT3 RS
Now from the stables of Weissach is the Porsche 911 GT3 RS. The naturally aspirated four-litre engine makes 510bhp, giving the GT3 RS a 0-100km/h time of 3.2 seconds and a top speed of 312km/h. Customers can choose the Weissach Package which comes with 20-inch magnesium wheels and additional carbon components in the interior and exterior of the car bringing down the total weight to 1430kg. Looking forward to see this in the flesh at Geneva.
Bentley's Bentayga is due to get a new 4-litre V8 engine which makes 542bhp and 770Nm. Bentley is also said to be introducing a new plug-in hybrid model which will give Bentayga customers and even wider choice of engine options.
Named after the legendry Formula 1 driver Artyon Senna, this 789bhp hypercar has a controversial appearance but McLaren says that every line and vent improves the overall aerodynamics of the car. It boasts a 4.0-litre twin-turbo V8 that propels it from 0-100km/h in 2.8 seconds and on to a top speed of 340km/h. McLaren says it will make 500, and they sold out immediately after launch.
