The 2019 Geneva Motor Show Will be Graced by a 965-Horsepower Hybrid Known as the 2019 Puritalia Berlinetta
The Geneva Motor Show is a still a month away, but we’re already getting the low-down on some of the ultra-hot debuts slated to show. One of the first out the gates is the 2019 Puritalia Berlinetta, a bespoke two-door from the Naples-based Puritalia Automobili, which promises nearly four-figures of output thanks to a high-tech V-8 hybrid powerplant. It this a sign of the times?
We usually feature high-end models from brands like BMW, Audi, Ferrari, or Lamborghini as our wallpapers of the day because, well, everyone loves a good sports car or supercar. There’s no denying that. But, at the end of the day, the world is in love with SUVs and Crossovers too and, for some reason, everyone seems to be in love with the 2020 Kia Telluride as well. Maybe it’s because it’s the first Kia developed specifically for the U.S. market. Or, maybe it’s because it’s Kia’s largest SUV to date. It even resembles the Telluride concept to at least some extent, so it has that kind of juice going for it as well. Either way, the Kia has seen a lot of interest lately, so we figured we might as well make it our wallpaper of the day today. We’ve picked out our favorite and plastered it here, but you can select any number you like from the gallery at the bottom of the page. Enjoy!
The 2020 Hyundai i20 Will Hit the Market to Take on the Ford Fiesta ST and Renault Clio RS
Hyundai is slowly but surely shifting its image from what it used to be a decade ago to one of a manufacturer that is on par with more established rivals. This is being achieved not only by making better everyday cars but making sportier cars too. The next one in line is the 2020 Hyundai i20 N - a model that’s slated to take on the Ford Fiesta ST and Renault Clio RS.
Ferrari’s Hybrid V-8 Supercar is Poised to Debut This Year but Where Will We Actually See It?
Ferrari has long prided itself on offering the finest driving machines around, and for years, the formula was quite simple - engine in the middle, power at the back, sharp suspension in the corners, and lots of wing at both ends. Now, however, as new technology finds its way into the performance sector, the Prancing Horse has been forced to adapt, which means the adoption of stuff like hybrid powerplants. And as it turns out, electrified assistance will become a major part of Ferrari’s offerings in just a few short years, starting with an upcoming V-8 supercar.
2020 Toyota Tacoma
Toyota launched the 2020 Tacoma model at the 2019 Chicago Auto Show. Although its sibling, the Sequoia TRD Pro, stole its thunder at the, one cannot sideline the Tacoma. After all, it is the best-selling mid-size pickup truck currently on the market. The 2020 Toyota Tacoma does not bring a lot of changes to the table; mechanically or cosmetically. Do you think there is enough to differentiate it from the 2019 model and keep up with the rising competition?
The first-ever BMW X4 made its debut in “standard” and Competition trim, and we’re so intrigued by it that we’ve decided to make it our wallpaper of the day in the same week of its debut. I know, that’s a little fast, but just look at this thing. It’s BMW’s first competitor for the Mercedes-AMG GLC63, and it has tons of technological goodies and DNA from the X3 M. More importantly, however, is the new S58, twin-turbo, inline-six that’s good for as much as 503 horsepower in competition trim (473 ponies in base M spec). This engine will eventually work its way down into the M2, M3, and M4 and could, with the right technological appropriation, replace BMW’s aging V-8. To do so, it’ll need to provide better fuel economy and equal power but the hybridized world we live in today should make that easy enough to do. Be that as it may, the X4 M is more than the heart that powers it because its aesthetic package is downright eye please (or boner inducing, if you prefer.) We’ve highlighted our favorite wallpaper down below, but if you want something else (or even more,) you can check out the full gallery at the bottom of the page. Enjoy!

I don’t know about you guys, but where I’m at up here in the mountains of northern California, Mother Nature has decided to dump a winter’s worth of snow in just a few weeks’ time.

2019 Ram 2500 Heavy Duty By Mopar
The 2019 Ram 2500 Heavy Duty by Mopar is a concept truck that showcases Mopar’s new line of accessories for FCA’s latest heavy-duty workhorse. Unveiled at the 2019 Chicago Auto Show, it previews already available and upcoming accessories from this iconic customization brand.

2019 Bugatti Chiron Sport ‘110 Ans’ Edition
Bugatti is celebrating its 110th anniversary this year, and in keeping with its reputation for celebrating anniversaries in style, it’s bringing a special edition Chiron to the 2019 Geneva Motor Show. The special edition model, called the Chiron Sport “110 Ans,” is essentially a love letter for Bugatti, from Bugatti. It’s limited to just 20 units, and it’s dressed up in the finest exclusive touches you can find in the business. The special edition ode to Bugatti’s heritage will be the centerpiece of Bugatti’s exhibit in Geneva, though it may or may not be joined by a mysterious one-off hypercar that Bugatti is also rumored to have a spot for in its booth in Geneva. But that’s a different story. This is all about the Bugatti Chiron Sport 110 Ans Edition, a fitting celebratory piece to Bugatti’s long and storied history in the business.
2019 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 LT Trail Boss LEGO
Chevrolet has teamed up with LEGO to create a full-sized brick version of the 2019 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 LT Trail Boss. The LEGO Group’s Model Shop in Enfield, Connecticut is responsible for the design and assembly of the monstrous LEGO Silverado. It’s made up of 334,544 LEGO pieces and weighs 3,307 pounds. Needless to say, completing this massive 20-foot build took some time and a lot of manpower. In total, 18 builders helped complete the life-sized truck, and more than 2,000 hours were consumed in the endeavor. The LEGO Silverado 1500 LT Trail Boss isn’t just for show, either. It was built in collaboration with Warner Bros. Pictures as part of the latter’s marketing blitz to promote the new LEGO movie, “The LEGO Movie 2: Second Part.” The movie is now in theaters in the U.S.
Bugatti Could Redefine The Pricing of One-Off Builds at The Geneva Motor Show
Bugatti is no stranger to shaking up the industry when there’s an opportunity to do so. That “opportunity” could come sooner than we think because of rumors that the super luxury performance brand is developing a one-off creation for the 2019 Geneva Motor Show. The whispered price of this one-off? $18 million. Details are still scarce at the point, but it is rumored that this one-off Bugatti has already been built. More importantly, it was built for Dr. Ferdinand Piëch, the former chairman of the Volkswagen Group, and is being launched as part of the automaker’s 110th-anniversary celebration.
2020 Volkswagen Jetta GLI35
The new 2020 Volkswagen Jetta GLI is just right. Presented at the 2019 Chicago Motor Show, the new hot Volkswagen compact sedan gained the much-needed overhaul with a fine upgrade that came from none other than the parts bins of the Golf GTI and the Golf R. It is a thoroughly improved car, with a 2.0-liter, turbocharged, gasoline engine, a fresh new look, and a far more advanced suspension compared to the lesser units. Let me just say it - rear multi-link. It has it.
With the new model introduced in Chicago, Volkswagen USA officials actually noted that the new car will come with two trim levels, while the limited edition GLI 35 serves as sort of a high-end model of the GLI world.
Now, we’ve already learned a lot about the new Volkswagen Jetta GLI, but what about the Volkswagen Jetta GLI35?
Is This the 2020 Mazda CX-4 That was Teased for the 2019 Geneva Motor Show?
Last week Mazda released a teaser picture showing the shadowy rear end of a new crossover that will break cover at the 2019 Geneva Motor Show in March. The silhouette looks a lot like the new-generation Mazda3, but it’s not yet clear what model we’re dealing with. Now, a pre-production vehicle spotted in China confirms that Mazda is indeed preparing to launch a small crossover based on the Mazda3. But what is it?
Well, we have three scenarios to consider.
