There are dozens, if not hundreds of car shows around the world every year. But, it’s at The Geneva International Motor Show that the most anticipated event occurs: A showcase for garage stuffers of the rich and powerful. And, 2016 was no exception. New tech, alternate fuels, increased power, unprecedented luxury and sumptuous style were, as always, the norm. But, this year, the mood was more, shall we say, “electric” than ever. Here’s why…
The $200k McLaren 570GT boasts 560 horsepower to the rear wheels, along with 430 pound-feet of torque. That allows the owner to go from 0 to 60 in 3.4 seconds and top out at 200 mph. What does that mean? This is clearly the “Poor Man’s” luxury sports car…
The GTC4 Lusso offers up 600 horsepower from the 6.2-liter V12 engine and goes from 0 to 60 in 3.4 seconds, hitting a top speed banging the needle at over 200 mph. The crazy thing? It’s a four passenger “family car.” Hey. Whaddya expect? It’s a Ferrari…
As its name intends, the $2 million Lamborghini Centenario marks the 100 year anniversary of the luxury sports car brand. It packs a V12 engine that produces 770 horsepower and the body is made almost entirely of carbon fiber. Which is a good thing. The lighter weight knocked about $250Gs off the price tag…
Sporting a 3-liter V6 engine, which produces a stunning 430 hp, the Maserati Levante is the legendary Italian car maker’s first entry into the SUV market. Viva La Roma!
If you find yourself needing to go from 0 to 60 mph in 3.7 seconds, then the $250,000 Porsche 911R is the luxury ride for you. Of course, at those speeds, an air conditioner is superfluous. And, that’s good. Because, while a 4-liter engine and a six-speed manual transmission are standard, A/C is not…
The Renault Scenic is France’s version of the family SUV. The rich family that is. The new “multi-purpose vehicle” bridges the gap between boring family car and sporty ride about town. So, nowadays, it’s the adults who are asking “Sommes-nous encore là?”
Time was, custom car fanatics welded two limos together for a stretch model. These days, it’s a luxury car straight off the line. And, at 18′ 3″, the Bentley Mulsanne takes the grand prize for most impressive. And packed with goodies. Like a partition that instantly goes from clear to opaque, a bottle cooler with champagne flutes and bespoke tumblers. Acetylene torch sold separately…
Citroen DS E-Tense
Producing more than 400 horsepower and hitting a top speed of 150+ mph, the DS E-Tense is a fully electric luxury car benefiting from the most advanced lithium-ion batteries ever slipped underneath the floorboards. Just plug and play!
With a gargantuan 16-cylinder engine producing 1,500 horsepower and 1,200 pound-feet of torque, the Chiron’s top speed is unknown – and untested. In the meantime, some tricky software will limit lucky drivers to somewhere in the neighborhood of 250 mph. Meaning quick runs to the 7-11 just got more convenient…
