Cupholders? The Koenigsegg Gemera is the Most Practical Hypercar Ever Built
Koenigsegg unveiled the Gemera, its first-ever four-seater, and basically reinvented the grand tourer segment. Not only because it’s incredibly powerful at 1,700 horsepower, but also because it’s more comfortable than the average hypercar. That’s thanks to no fewer than eight cupholders, plenty of rear-seat passenger room, comfortable rear sets, and easy ingress and egress.
2020 Bugatti Chiron Pur Sport
There have been rumors about a new version of the Chiron slated to debut in Geneva and Bugatti kept its word and showed it to the world, albeit using its online media channels. Ladies and gents, meet the Chiron Pur Sport, a corner-carving hypercar that feels at home on winding roads or on the race track.
As you’d expect, the Bugatti Chiron Pur Sport is a tad different than your usual Chiron, since Bugatti had to fine tune its chef d’oeuvre for the new purpose it serves. Here’s everything you need to know about the Chiron Pur Sport.
Is Koenigsegg’s 600HP Three-Cylinder Engine The Key To The Survival of the Internal Combustion Engine?
Following years of rumors that it will build a sedan, Koenigsegg unveiled its first four-seater at the 2020 Geneva Motor Show. Called the Gemera, it’s a classic grand tourer inside the cabin, but it retains the mid-engined, two-door layout of Koenigsegg’s mainstream supercars.
But while this is an important breakthrough for the brand, the big news here is that the Gemera is powered by a hybrid drivetrain that includes an insanely powerful three-cylinder engine. Yes, that’s not a typo. Koenigsegg built a three-cylinder and it cranks out an amazing 600 horsepower and 443 pound-feet of torque.
2020 McLaren Verdant Theme GT by MSO
The McLaren 765LT is getting all the deserved shine today, but that doesn’t mean we should sleep on the other model that the British automaker unveiled as part of its Geneva Motor Show offering.
The McLaren GT Verdant Theme by MSO isn’t an entirely new model as it is based on McLaren’s showstopping GT supercar. Where it stands out is the level of customization it received from MSO, McLaren’s in-house personalization department.
Certainly, MSO’s work on the GT speaks for itself. The supercar wears an exclusive paint finish unlike anything MSO has offered in the past. The exclusive touches continue in the interior, and the results are as mind-blowing as you’d imagine them to be.
2021 Pininfarina Battista Anniversario
Pininfarina never misses an opportunity to showcase something special at the Geneva Motor Show. It helps that its stand is located right as you come up the stairs from the main hallway, so you can’t really miss its stunning concepts.
Although it was forced to reveal the Battista Anniversario on the world wide web this year, Pininfarina didn’t forget how to make a splash, albeit on our screens and not in the metal.
2021 Koenigsegg Jesko Absolut
Koenigsegg wasn’t going to sit and watch all the other carmakers unloading their press releases and picture packs on the internet. No, sir. So the Swedish carmaker dropped what it calls the Jesko Absolut, a supercar that’s based on the Jesko but ups the ante when it comes to aerodynamics and high-speed road behavior.
The 2021 McLaren 765LT - How McLaren Made the 720S Better
McLaren has unveiled the new 765LT and boy, oh boy, it is one impressive speed machine both from the performance and design perspective.
Just as we anticipated, the 765LT is underpinned by the McLaren 720S, which makes for a formidable platform as we saw it was the case with the Senna. That said, here’s all you need to know about the new McLaren 765LT.
Let’s start with performance, shall we? The McLaren 765LT features the same mid-mounted, twin-turbo 4.0-liter V-8 as the 720S, but retuned to produce 765 PS (754 horsepower) and 800 Nm (590 pound-feet) of twist.
Watch the New McLaren LT Online Debut Right Here!
As McLaren’s Geneva plans took a hit (it goes the same for every carmaker that planned a debut at GIMS 2020), the company will now reveal its upcoming LT supercar via a press conference that will broadcast online, held by CEO Mike Flewitt.
There’s not much we know about the next LT-branded super sports car coming from McLaren, although we can make some educated guesses looking at the 650S-based 675LT.
Two main features of the new LT would have to do with power and weight. As in, more power and less weight. Word is, however, that McLaren will base the said LT on the 720S, which will make it the second supercar to use 720S underpinnings, after the McLaren Senna.
Expect a generous use of carbon fiber, a streamlined body kit, lighter wheels, and new bits and bobs such as redesigned side mirrors and extra air inlets perhaps, as well as an active rear wing. It goes without saying that the elongate rear end is a must and at the same time, the car’s design centerpiece.
A retuned, more powerful version of McLaren’s 4.0-liter V-8 is on the cards, complemented by larger brakes. Get ready for a spicy price tag, too, on par with the new Longtail’s heightened track abilities.
How’s This For a Ferrari LaFerrari Successor?
With Geneva knocking at the door, we can’t help but look back at the 2013 edition of the word’s largest motor show, which say Ferrari introduced the game-changing LaFerrari. The thing is, though, the LaFerrari is a bit long in the tooth right now and in dire need of a worthy successor.
No, don’t jump for joy just yet, Ferrari hasn’t laid out any plans of launching such a hypercar, but there’s one designer that let his creative juices to flow freely and the result is what he calls the Ferrari Stallone.
Glickenhaus SCG 004C Spotted Testing, Looks Ready to Rumble
Previously seen only in computer-generated pictures, the Scuderia Cameron Glickenhaus 004C race car finally appeared in public, and it looks every bit like the showstopper those CG images hinted at. The race-spec version of the 004 supercar was spotted performing some test runs at the Cremona Circuit in San Martino del Lago, Italy.
Wearing nothing but naked carbon fiber panels, the 004C looked completely at home and in its element, racking up precious testing and development ahead of its competitive debut in this year’s VLN Series in Europe. There’s been a lot of speculation surrounding the status of the SCG 004C and its street-version alter ego, the SCG 004S. Now those speculations can be put to rest. The SCG 004C is now out and about and judging by its track test runs, it’s ready to take a bite out of the competition.
It Took an Electric Car to Silence The McLaren 720S
The McLaren 720S has been instilling fear into every out-and-out supercar, muscle car, and sports car you can think of. It has more drag race wins under its belt than we can count and it’s arguably one of the most quick-accelerating cars on sale today. But it is no match for the audacious Volkswagen ID.R.
Watch the Rimac C Two Deploy Its Active Aero on the Track
The production variant of the Rimac C Two is coming at the 2020 Geneva Motor Show, but Rimac isn’t exactly on holiday these days. The two-seater, all-electric hypercar needs to be locked and loaded by the time Geneva kicks off (unless the recent coronavirus developments will force the authorities to cancel the show), and Rimac is hard at work to ready the C Two for its debut.
