Several luxury cars and supercars will debut on the showroom later this week, as well as SUVs and a few next-gen models of traditional brand lineups. The European show is one of the most important stages for auto shows in the world.
Ferrari, Lamborghini, and McLaren will show new supercars
The world’s top automakers will arrive at Geneva on flashy new rides that not only look great but can also outperform most cars any given day. Ferrari will bring the successor to the F12 Berlinetta to the venue later this week.
Ferrari’s 812 Superfast will make its world debut with a 6.5-liter V12 engine, packing 530 lb/feet of torque and 789 horsepower. The Italian powerhouse claims this is their most potent powertrain yet.
Lamborghini will showcase two new variants of its current lineup: the Aventador S and the Huracan Performance. The Performance has a V10 engine, and it is the fastest production car in the world ahead of the Porsche 918 Spyder.
McLaren’s next-generation Super Series is off to a great start in Geneva with the world premiere of the 720S. Car enthusiasts have yet to see the design, but the automaker has said the vehicle would have active aerodynamics to increase efficiency and reduce weight.
