Geneva Motor Show – Random Car Round-up

The Geneva International Motor Show, home to new cars and concepts alike, has now come and gone, leaving motoring enthusiasts eagerly anticipating the release of their favourite vehicles that were on show in Switzerland.

With so many cars that we could write about, we decided to randomly select seven cars from the Geneva Motor Show and provide a short description regarding each of the vehicles.

So let’s start Random Car Round-up’!

Bentley Flying Spur

Bentley unleashed the Flying Spur to the hysterical masses at Geneva earlier this month, touting the vehicle as the world’s most refined performance sedan.

The all-new Flying Spur manages to combine effortless driveability, sculpted design, exquisite luxury and craftsmanship and state of the art technology; ensuring that the vehicle takes the worldwide success of its iconic predecessor to a whole new level.

Residing within the new Flying Spur is Bentley’s monstrous, well known 6.0 litre, twin turbo W12 engine, which is paired with a ZF eight speed transmission.

The beastly engine manages to produce a whopping 616bhp and 800Nm of torque, ensuring that the Flying Spur yields more power than any other Bentley four-door vehicle in the luxury British-based company’s history.

Jaguar XFR-S

In similar fashion to Bentley, Jaguar unveiled its fastest and most powerful saloon in its history: the XFR-S.

The all-new Jaguar XFR-S utilises the exact 550PS 5.0 litre supercharged V8 engine as the well received XKR-S model, helping the new sports saloon to race down the 0-62mph in an alleged 4.6 seconds and reach a dizzy top speed of 186mph.

The sleek and powerful vehicle would make perfect leasing sense to a business looking to kit out its employees with something that provides an excellent visual interpretation of the business itself.

Lamborghini Veneno

Continuing the streak of beautiful-looking vehicle, the recently announced Lamborghini Veneno was truly a sight to behold at the Geneva International Motor Show.

Lamborghini’s answer to Ferrari and McLarens new breed of 900+hp hypercars had already completely sold out before the first week’s end of the Motor Show, depending being labelled with an asking price of €3 million plus tax; which is roughly £2.6 million at today’s exchange rates.

The Veneno takes the popular Lamborghini Aventador’s 6.5 litre V12 engine, capable of producing 700hp, and gives it a kick up the rear, allowing the engine’s power to fly up to 750hp.

Land Rover Electric Defender

Flying the flag at Geneva for British innovation in sustainable engineering was Land Rover, who took the covers off its new electric Defender research vehicle.

Within the electric Defender models lays a 70kW electric motor, paired with a 300V lithium-ion battery, which has a capacity of 27kW. This powertrain allows each electric Defender vehicle to have a range of over fifty miles.

Nissan Leaf

Not a new concept but still a widely acclaimed vehicle: Nissan showed off some revisions and improvements on its existing Leaf models at Geneva.

Since its launch back in 2011, over 50,000 new Nissan Leaf vehicles have been registered to customers nationwide and Nissan will be expecting this figure to grow after listening to feedback from pioneering Leaf owners.

Some of the improvements that Nissan has made to its Leaf models include an extended driving range, more space within the cabin and lots of extra equipment; as well as now offering three variants of the popular model.

Renault Clio GT

Renault rounded off its family of performance cars by introducing a GT version of the ever-popular Clio model.

The new Clio GT comes with Renault’s well-receivedR-Link’, a touch screen navigation system, as well as including driver aids, automatic climate control, a radio with Bluetooth and USB connectivity and, as an optional extra, a reversing camera.

The new Renault Clio GT-Line T Ce 120 EDC can also be leased with the optional Renault i.d. Malta Blue paint finish, which provides a sleek and glossy outlook for the vehicle.

This compliments the new car’s instantly recognis able Renault sport design cues, such as the grille, daytime running lights and seventeen inch wheels.

Rolls-Royce Wraith

Labelled as the most powerful and dynamic Rolls-Royce in history, the Wraith entered the Geneva International Motor Show to cheers and applause from everyone present.

The luxury car’s performance compliments its exquisite styling, with an effortless delivery of power thanks to its V12 engine, coupled with an eight speed automatic transmission.

The all-new Wraith is capable of burning through the 0-62mph sprint in just 4.5 seconds, edging out the previous Ghost model by 0.3 seconds.

This is achievable thanks to the vehicle’s monstrous engine – capable of producing a substantial 624bhp for a driver lucky enough to be behind the wheel of such a fantastic vehicle.
