2017 Geneva Motor Show Top Picks

Mar 29, 2017

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.

With limited productions that recently started or about to commence, only a blessed few could get their hands to drive the latest and greatest from Ferrari, McLaren, Lamborghini, Mercedes, Porsche, Aston Martin and Pagani. 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.

2. McLaren 720S

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. 

4. Mercedes-AMG GT Concept
