For the 87th time since 1905, top automobile manufacturers convened to unleash their latest and most advanced supercars at this year’s Geneva Motor Show held March 9-19, 2017. Car pundits pilgrimed to this supercar Mecca to be caught with the newest, fastest, and high price-tagged models that boast engines with breathtaking horsepowers, exotic exterior and bold interior designs, and out-of-the-box concepts.

Europe Luxury Car Hire, however, promises to provide opportunity to everyone aspiring to experience the following sought-after models once they become available.
The 87th Geneva International Motor Show marked history for Ferrari as it revealed its most powerful and fastest supercar to date - the 812 Superfast. The F12 Berlinetta ’s successor is most likely to be the last naturally-aspirated V12 from the company. Powering this roaring work of art is a 6.5 liter engine producing 789 horsepower at an astonishing rev of 8500 rpm and 525 lb-ft of torque. Ferrari 812 Superfast lives up to its name as it whizzes to 62 mph in just 2.9 seconds.
Taking you to the edge of your seat is the all new 720S, the British supercar maker McLaren’s hottest and greatest. This hypercar integrates the roof to the single piece of tub made of carbon fibre, otherwise known as the innovative Carbon Fibre Monocage II. The McLaren 720S promises unceasing power with its 4.0 litre twin-turbo V8 producing 720 horsepower and 568 lb-ft of torque, and a superior handling with its Proactive Chassis Control II.
Stealing the show at the 2017 Geneva Motor Show is Lamborghini’s Huracan Performante, the smashing lap record holder for production cars of the prominent Nürburgring. This supercar made the lap in just 6 minutes and 52 seconds outdoing the Radical SR8 and the Porsche 918 Spyder. What makes it such a road ruler is the innovative system of active aerodynamics, the ALA (Aerodinamica Lamborghini Attiva) which was specifically patented for the Performante. Weighing 3047 pounds, the Huracan Performante jumps from zero to 60 mph in just 2.9 seconds.
Having its world premiere this year at the Geneva Motor Show, the promising new concept of AMG GT not only marked AMG’s 50th birthday, but also celebrated the birth of the third AMG model line. During the launch, Dr. Dieter Zetsche, Head of Mercedes Benz cars boasted the AMG GT Concept to be the first car ever awarded with an EQ Power Plus badge due to its clean mobility and outstanding driving dynamics. Combining a four-door body with an 805 hybrid horsepower, the AMG GT Concept has a twin-turbo V8 engine that offers a relentless power of up to 600 hp allowing a sprint from zero to 62 mph in less than 3 seconds.
For the first time, Porsche 911 GT3 surprised Geneva with the availability of manual transmission. With an optional pairing with a 7 speed PDK automatic transmission, this 4.0-litre flat six engine that produces 500 horsepower and 339 lb-ft torque can flash from zero to 60 mph in just 3.2 seconds. Furthermore, this GT3 includes active rear axle steering, a rear locking differential, and dynamic engine mounts making it perfect for handling race track corners.
Aston Martin’s forthcoming revolutionary hypercar named Valkyrie launched in Geneva this year. Evolving the V-series tradition from Vantage, Virage, Vanquish and Vulcan, the new Valkyrie is packed with a naturally-aspirated V12 that can revolve up to a ridiculously fast 11,000 rpm. Its power output is set at over 1000 horsepower with a power to weight ratio of 1:1.
Hailed this year is Pagani’s long awaited topless supercar, the Huayra Roadster. Lighter by 176 lbs than its coupe version, the elegant Huayra Roadster boasts its weight of 2822 lbs, thanks to Pagani’s inhouse invention of the composite material Carbotanium. Power is not compromised at 764 horsepower paired to a 7 speed transmission provided by a 6.0-liter twin-turbo V12. Without surprise, this limited-to-100-units Huayra Roadster is already sold out.
