Geneva Motor Show

  Check out this page to see what's coming this year to the Geneva motor show or what happened the previous years. This is a great resource for those attending the show and wondering what are the must see!.

Every year, Italdesign Giugiaro comes to the Geneva Motor Show ; and every year it brings something completely loony (in a good way) to the party.

This time around, the Italian design house might have outdone itself completely with the unveiling of the Clipper, a peculiar-looking MPV whose eccentricity can’t be measured at least until you see what its fully capable of.

For a company that given us the Parcour and the Brivido in past auto shows, the Clipper certainly fits into that edgy design and sharpness that its two predecessors had.

But arguably the most interesting parts about the Clipper are its similarities with the Volkswagen Tex Concept it designed for VW at the 2011 Geneva Motor Show. That, or our eyes are just playing tricks on us.

In any case, this is the Clipper MPV, folks. Chances are, you won’t see another one quite like it in the near future.

If ever there were a vehicle to arise from left field, the Quant e-Sportlimousine would be it. Digging in the archives reveals the car’s origins starting in 2003 as the brainchild of the La Vecchia brothers. Several prototypes were built, including one that was seen at the Geneva Motor Show back in 2010, but success hadn’t been ultimately achieved. That is, perhaps, until now.

Staring a proprietary battery-powered drivetrain, the e-Sportlimousine makes its debut at the 2014 Geneva show with the intent of revolutionizing the industry. It sounds easier than it likely is, but upon inspection of its nanoFLOWCELL powerplant, it just might have a shot. It’s a 912-horsepower electric car.

The heart of the car utilizes a three-tank system that stores two types of liquid electrolytes — one positively charged, the other negatively. The liquids are circulated through the center tank; a battery-like cell with a membrane separating it into two halves. An electrical charge is generated from that membrane as the two liquids swirl on either side of it. The system generates enough power to propel the car from zero to 62 mph in a staggering 2.8 seconds and over a total range between 248 and 372 miles.

It’s obvious from the pictures the e-Sportlimousine isn’t just a boxy, test-mule science project – no, its quite the looker. The car is a substantially long, measuring 17.2 feet. It’s wide as well, measuring 7.2 feet across and its unique gull-wing doors are nearly 6 feet in length. Needless to say, this is a big car. But can its size be an indicator of how huge its technology will be to the automotive world? Click past the jump for what we know.

Q by Aston Martin — the sports car’s customization department — has brought us some gorgeous example in recent history. Whether it was the CC100 Speedster Concept that was introduced at last year’s Geneva Motor Show or Q’s first stab at the Vanquish Volante , Aston’s customization program has been a veritable hit factory.

Like a gift that just keeps on giving, Q by Aston Martin has released two addition models at the 2014 Geneva Auto Show, giving us an idea of just how talented the customization division really is.

Unlike last year’s Red Ember-finished Vanquish Volante , this one is a little more subdued, but no less incredible in its own special way. Sometimes subtle touches trump over-the-top modifications when it comes to making a fantastic custom ride. And subtlety is exactly what this custom Vanquish Volante ozzes from every pore.

Fiat -Chrysler has unveiled its latest offspring at the Geneva Motor Show , the all-new 2015 Jeep Renegade. The little Jeep represents the brand’s first foray into the small crossover market, but its global market reach will be anything but small. Fiat-Chrysler is will sell the Jeep in over 100 markets worldwide while targeting youthful, thrill-seeking customers.

That global reach hasn’t stopped the Jeep from showing its rugged roots though. Two four-wheel-drive systems, decent ground clearance, a removable top, a manual transmission option and loads of cargo room are all part of the Renegade’s tactical plan for world domination. And with its lineage tracing back to the Willys MB Jeep that helped win WWII, we’re not quick to discount the plan, despite the Renegade’s less than macho exterior appeal.

The Renegade will offer an unprecedented 16 powertrain combinations with 6 engine options in total, though the U.S. is only getting a small number of them, with both being familiar from other Fiat-Chrysler products. The 1.4-liter turbo I-4 from the Fiat 500L serves as the base engine, while the 2.4-liter Tigershark I-4 from the Dodge Dart and Chrysler 200 fills the top-tier slot. A six-speed manual transmission will come attached to the 1.4-liter while the 2.4-liter gets a nine-speed automatic unit. Front-wheel-drive will come standard with four-wheel-drive being an option.

With its attractive cuteness, clever interior packaging options, and impressive list of amenities, it’s easy to imagine the Renegade catching on worldwide. The question remains, however, is it worthy of the Jeep name and Trail Rated badge? Click past the jump to find out.

It’s not the most bombastic special-edition vehicle Mercedes has released, but there’s something to be said for the SL 2LOOK Edition. If class can be found in the simplest of canvases, the SL 2LOOK Edition is manifestation of that.

The car was introduced at the 2014 Geneva Motor Show together with the SLK CarbonLOOK and while its partner-in-crime shows what Mercedes’ dark side could look like, the SL 2LOOK Edition is presented in a little more classy look, complete with various contrast finishes and some sprinkles of AMG involvement.

Both cars are scheduled to be available to the public soon, but for now, enjoy them as they continue to make an impression at the Geneva Motor Show. Sooner or later, a lot of you might have to pull out your pockets to get them as options for your respective Mercedes’.

Custom supercars have become quite the fad these days with a lot of companies taking the route of tailor-made personalization services to build bespoke creations.

Aston Martin has one of these bespoke divisions, and it’s built some pretty interesting vehicles since its inception. Remember the CC100 Speedster Concept from last year? Yeah, that was just one example.

This year, the British marque brought a pair of new custom vehicles courtesy of Q by Aston Martin, and one of them is this sparkling V12 Vantage S that looks especially saucy with that white body and orange garnishing.

With the increasing popularity of bespoke sports cars , companies like Aston Martin are using events like Geneva to give the people a taste of what it’s capable of. Judging by the works Q by Aston Martin has delivered since it was created a few years ago, there’s a good chance that more and more of these unique Astons will be show their faces in future auto shows.

Just like this Aston Martin V12 Vantage S.

With the reveal of the new Audi TT today, there was very little shock and surprise. The car was exactly what everyone expected. A gentle exterior refinement, more powerful and efficient engines, and restyled interior are all par for the course.

And then Audi goes and blows the lid off our brains with the TT Quattro Sport Concept.

The Quattro Sport Concept is basically the most hardcore TT that Audi could possibly produce. It is fitted with an aggressive body kit with requisite massive wing, Quattro AWD and 420 horsepower. Audi says the Sport Quattro Concept would hit 60 mph in 3.7 seconds. That is one-tenth quicker than the V10 Audi R8 .

The whole car is built of lightweight materials and space-age components. Much of the suspension is aluminum, carbon composites help make up some of the body work and the interior has been stripped of all but the necessities.

The hottest Audi TT from the last generation was the limited-run TT RS . This looks to even beat that machine into the ground.

Similar to how German tuners come out in droves anytime the Frankfurt Auto Show arrives, Mansory’s presence is automatic when the Geneva Motor Show opens its doors.

This year, a handful of new programs have been made courtesy of Switzerland’s finest, and one of those happens to be Rolls-Royce’s brand-spankin’ new baby, the Wraith .

This is how Mansory rolls, fellas. No cheap tricks. Just the best of the best deserving the best tuning programs in the world.

Jaw-dropping as some of Mansory’s previous works are, there’s something alluring about its program for the Wraith.

It’s pretty...subdued. In a very good idea.

The tuner probably realized that going bombastic on the Wraith will just drive away the luxury car’s classy nature so smart move on the part of Mansory to recognize that. In the end, it did the right thing by giving the Wraith the kind of unique modification that brings up its level of appeal yet does so without compromising its luxurious quality.

The Mazda2 has been largely an afterthought in the Mazda lineup but at the Geneva Motor Show , the Japanese automaker’s resident hatchback will get its much deserved time in the spotlight.

Good for the Mazda2 because it has really earned the right to get a concept vehicle to preview what the next-generation model will look like. As far as the name of the concept goes, Mazda has christened it the "Hazumi," which apparently means "spring up" or "bound" in Japanese.

While we have no clue on the significance of its meaning to the Mazda 2, we do know that the change is long overdue, especially with that all-too-happy look of its predecessor. In its place, it appears that Mazda will adopt the new styling language seen on the Mazda 3 and Mazda 6 . What that means is that we expect to see the same angular headlights that the teaser proudly shows, as well as a more contoured grille and a sculpted signature wing. LEDs are also in play for the Mazda2.

On the more technical side, the new Mazda2 is also being prepared to use a shorter version of the CX-5 ’s platform, which means that we can reasonably expect a slightly bigger frame than what we’ve come accustomed to.

All that is good news for Mazda’s forlorn hatch. It’s forsaken no more, folks, so get excited for that!

Mansory sure wasn’t kidding when it described its Carbonado GT program for the Lamborghini Aventador as an overdose in carbon fiber.

To be more specific, the Swiss tuner used a carbon-fiber weave with a stealth look, which apparently is what it uses exclusively in a lot of its programs. That should be cause for confusion for those not privy to such technological marvel, but its all in a days work for Mansory.

In a lot of ways, the Swiss tuner has made a living out of these fanciful programs. Some of these projects have been knocked out of the park, while some have been complete whiffs. That said, the roster that Mansory has brought to Geneva , specifically the Carbonado GT, has been a showcase on why the company is considered one of the most exclusive aftermarket tuners in the business.

For better or for worse, Mansory wants to overwhelm even the most hardened of skeptics. And with the Carbonado GT program for the Lamborghini Aventador, and that’s precisely what it accomplished.
