Live coverage of the Geneva Motor Show 2019: Big premiere of Audi, Bugatti, Ferrari and others



The Geneva Motor Show is an absolute outbreak of a motor show. Automobile manufacturers from all over the world are not just meeting to present not just new cars in the mass market, but also hyper cars and everything in between.

The 2019 show, which launches its two-day media run on Tuesday, seems to be no exception. While we've already seen a little bit of what the automakers offer, there are more than a few things we've just seen in teasers or heard from the rumor mill. Let's look at what we know so far in alphabetical order. Do not worry –

; the show has more to offer than what you see here.

Alpina B7

The BMW 7 Series is the automaker's flagship sedan, but the Alpina B7 takes everything on the standard sedan buttons to 11. The Alpina B7 2020 promises to make the roadway absolutely dead to punish. The 4.4-liter twin-turbo V8 delivers 600 horsepower and a 590 pound-foot torque, enough to push this sedan to 60 mph in just 3.5 seconds. The interior is packed with both luxurious accommodations and technology, so it's worth the high price of $ 142,695.

Alfa Romeo's new model

At the moment, Alfa Romeo has just said that there will be an introduction of a new model in Geneva . While nothing else has been confirmed, we have heard that it is a smaller crossover to be added below the Stelvio. Considering how hungry the market for crossovers is, this is a great way to get Alfas into more driveways, especially in the US.

We do not even have a teaser on the new Alfa model, so hold on. [19659008] Jon Wong / Roadshow

All Terrain by Aston Martin Lagonda

Aston Martin Lagonda has something cool up its sleeve to double the brilliant concept that debuted in Geneva last year. From the teaser we can surmise that the Lagonda All-Terrain will be a tall, sleek thing shaking up Lagonda's brilliant design language with an electric powertrain.

Mysterious. And big.


Aston Martin

Audi plug-in hybrid

Audi brings an electrified farce to Switzerland. The automaker will introduce plug-in hybrid variants of the A6, A7, A8 and Q5 . When using lithium-ion batteries, European WLTP standards are expected by everyone to have a 25-mile electrical range. The electric motor is hidden in the gear while the battery is hidden under the body.

A big, happy (and electrified) family.


Audi

Audi Q4 E-Tron Concept

The E-Tron concept of the Q4 is likely to predict a crossover "coupe" that will join the all-electric E-Tron lineup. It is unclear whether Audi will also release a gas or diesel version, but the sketch that Audi provides as a teaser looks pretty beefy in both cases. It should reach production by our estimates in late 2020 or early 2021.

The Q4 E-Tron cuts a slim profile that almost looks like it's a coupe-over.


Audi

Audi TT RS

The most recent version of [9] [9] [9] [9] [9] [9] [9] [9] [9] [9] [9] [9] [9] [9] [9] [9] [9] [9] [9] [9] [9] [9] [9]

The most recent repetition of [9] [9] [9] [9] [9] [9] [9] [9] [9] [9] [9] [9] [9] [9] [9]

Audi TT RS

The Recent Recurrence of [9] [9] [9] [9] [9] [9] [9] [9] [9] [9] [9] [9] [9] [9] [9] [9] [9] [9] [9] [9]

The recent reiteration of Audi's compact Hot-Luke is even sharper than before. In particular, the RS retains its 2.5-liter I5, which outputs 394 horsepower and 354 lb-ft of torque. But now there are more angry bumpers and a few minor changes in the interior.

Bentley Bentayga Speed ​​

Welcome the fastest SUV ever made. As was the case with the sedans, Bentley gave his SUV a bit more excitement and posted a speed badge there. The Bentayga Speed ​​ delivers 626 horsepower and 664 lb-ft of torque, it will reach 62 mph in 3.9 seconds and will not stop until it reaches 190 mph. Of course, it's also a Bentley, so it's equipped with some of the coolest kits you can find in the industry. And because you may eventually have to stop, Bentley has added the allegedly biggest brakes in a vehicle. Yowza.

Bentley sells only 100 copies of its new Continental GT Number 9 edition of a car built as part of the company's centenary corporate event. All 100 will receive a glass-encased wood insert from Sir Henry Ralph Stanley's "Tim" Birkins Le Mans race car, as well as 18-carat gilded organ strikes, among others. It is a very special car for a very special milestone.

BMW X3 M and X4 M

BMW has finally managed to give its smaller crossovers the full M treatment. The X3 M and X4 M in its basic configuration features a 3.0-liter I6 with turbocharger that provides 473 hp and 442 lb-ft of torque. In other words, people can opt for 503 hp if 473 is not enough for some reason. They look cool, they sound cool and probably will move like no one else.

Bugatti La Voiture Noir

Bugatti Unveils La Voiture Noir (the black car, translated from French) -by-a creation that brings the idea of ​​grand touring into a car with tremendous power and power to integrate the same luxury. It also costs an immense amount of money, and the final price of Bugatti is a cool 11 million euros (12.4 million dollars) – before taxes. So you appear at the Geneva Motor Show 2019.

Ferrari F8 Tributo

The 488 GTB is dead and gone, and in its place this is the F8 Tributo . The hardcore aero-focused look of the 812 Superfast and other new Ferraris makes the F8 pack right behind the driver with a 710 hp V8 engine, enough for a sprint from 2.9 seconds to 62 mph. It's aerodynamically more efficient, but it's also 88 pounds lighter than before.

GFG Style Kangaroo

The Italian company GFG Style calls this thing a "hyper-SUV" and it's a weird setting in a high profile supercar. The motivation is based on two electric motors, each with 241 hp. The rear-wheel steering helps the car to handle better, and a 90-kilowatt-hour battery is said to give the car a range of more than 280 miles with a single charge. Oh, and did we mention it's kangaroo? Weird.

Ginetta's new supercar

It does not have a name, but Ginetta's new supercar speaks for itself. I mean, look at the datasheet – the 6.0-liter V8 delivers 600 horsepower and 516 lb-ft of torque, enough to get it up to a top speed of 200 mph. The thing looks like it was designed, constructed and built in a wind tunnel, with all the aerodynamic tricks. It is wild.

Hispano Suiza Carmen

It can be forgiven that you do not know the name Hispano Suiza, as the long-sleeping Spanish automaker has a long and somewhat tormented history. This chronology will receive a suitably sinuous new chapter in the show, if not one, but two models debuted with Hispano-Suiza models in Geneva. The winding part? They are presented by two different manufacturers, both claiming that they have the right to play the brand of the long-dead brand. The Carmen electric supercar of this company is probably the more ambitious of the two. The founder's great-grandson's product is a carbon-fiber Grand Tourer all-electric, promising 1,006 horsepower and promising a sprint from less than 3 seconds to 62 miles per hour. Based on the teaser photo, the $ 1.7 million coupe looks like it could be a fairly retrofuturistic showstopper.

What, no hat with fruit on it? Oh, wait, wrong Carmen


Hispano Suiza

Honda E-prototype

The Honda E-prototype is a close-to-production version of the Urban EV concept that was debuted in Frankfurt in 2017. It was built on a dedicated EV rear-wheel-drive platform E Prototype promises space for at least four, screens for at least a dozen and a non-measurable cuteness. As a kick in the pants, however, this will probably only stay in Europe when it reaches production.

Yes, yes, a thousand times yes.


Honda

Hyundai Tucson N-Line

Hyundai has recently unveiled its N-Line fairing that offers the sporty looks of their Hot-to-Trot N cars without the added expense of the components that actually make this sport. The next vehicle in this lineup will be the compact Tucson SUV, which gets its own sports kit. Although the details are still scarce, it would not be unappealing to expect a range of N-Line patches, red contrast stitching, and body work that are a bit more aggressive than usual.

That's all we've seen from the outside.


Hyundai

The new concept of Italdesign

The concept of Italdesign has no name, but it gets by with style. This long, slender two-door concept promises … something, we think, because Italdesign has not given us any information yet. We do not have much to wait, but the teaser that Italdesign made should keep you waiting with bated breath. It's an eye-catcher

Ooh.


Italdesign

Jaguar XE

It's finally time for Jaguar's smallest saloon to refresh. The 2020 XE does not look too different from the outside, with big changes due to in-car tech. The InControl Touch Pro Duo 2-screen infotainment system is now available, as well as charging wireless devices and a camera-based rearview mirror. The rotary switch is gone too, and I do not think anyone misses it.

Kia's 21-frame EV concept

No, you did not misread this headline. Kia's wild EV concept will pack 21 screens. Fortunately, it does not take itself seriously: Kia said the ridiculous amount of screens "is a humorous consequence of the industry's current obsession with more and more dashboard screens." Considering how many automakers have no sense of humor, this is actually a breath of fresh air. Bring it on.

Uhhh ….


Kia

Lamborghini Huracan Evo Spyder

I doubt anyone was surprised when Lamborghini treated the drop-top variant of the Huracan with the Evo treatment. Following the introduction of the Huracan Evo Coupe (19459008), here is the Convertible which offers the same 640-horsepower experience but has more wind in the hair. Oh, and it will also reach 202 miles per hour. However, they are expensive and start at $ 287,400 in the US.

Mazda CX-4

Mazda had shown its first crossover "coupe" in China in 2016, but now it's apparently time to head for the European region. The CX-4 will live between the CX-3 and CX-5 (duh), but at the rear end it will have a unique style that gives it a sleeker look. That of course eats the cargo space, but fashion is pain.

This teaser has just the right secret.


Mazda

Mercedes-AMG GLE53

The time-honored GLE class of Mercedes-Benz joins the club with six ranks. Its 3.0-liter turbo I6 delivers 429 hp and a torque of 384 lb-ft. A 48 volt mild hybrid system can further increase these numbers for a short time. It also has some fat fender flares, because who does not like fat fender flares?

Mercedes-AMG GT R Roadster

What about the Mercedes-AMG GT R Coupe? Imagine you have no roof over your head and you have the Mercedes-AMG GT R Roadster . There's a 4.0-liter V8 engine with two turbochargers that delivers 577 horsepower and all the good things you could need to bring that power to the ground with perfect posture. If you want one, you should act faster. Only 750 are sold worldwide.

Mercedes-AMG S65 – Final Edition

The beautiful 6.0-liter V12 engine from Mercedes is not long in the world. As a farewell we say that Mercedes gives us the last edition of the AMG S65 sedan (19459009). It's a big, black Benz with bronze accents and a fully charged interior specification. It will certainly be expensive and just as exclusive: only 130 are offered worldwide.

Mercedes-Benz Concept EQV

Are we excited about an electric van? You're damn right, it's us. The Concept EQV will be an electric concept based on the new V-Class Transporter, offering electromobility to the working class. We're not sure what it will look like or how its electric powertrain will work, but we're still excited.

Mercedes-Benz GLC Class [194559009] Mercedes-Benz Compact GLC receives a mid-cycle update that adapts its appearance to other modern-day Mercs like the GLE. The GLC300's I4 gas engine is more powerful than ever, while the interior is treated with MBUX, the automaker's latest (and best) infotainment system. Expect to arrive in the US later this year.

Mercedes-Benz SL-Class Grand Edition

The soldiers of the Mercedes-Benz SL-Class are used year after year, and now there is a new special edition to keep this version fresh a bit longer. Mercedes-Benz has extended both the SL450 and the SL550 with a Grand Edition fairing . The trim is gray only and adds chrome and matte aluminum, unique wheels and numerous badges. The interior rocks brown leather and as expected more badges.

Mercedes-Benz SLC Class Final Edition

The Mercedes-Benz SLC Roadster finally disappears into the dust of the earth. The Final Edition model will make its debut in Geneva, signaling the end of the two-door compact sports car. We will not get them until the US until 2020, so we have enough time to complain about the loss.

Mitsubishi ASX

In Europe, it could be called an ASX, but Mitsubishi has a new outlander sport up its sleeve for Geneva. The 2020 ASX introduces a sharper design that first appeared on the great Outlander. Some Eclipse Cross was thrown into the mix for a good deal. Inside is a new infotainment system that can play videos stored on USB drives while the vehicle is stationary. Expect it to arrive in the US either later in 2019 or early 2020.

Mitsubishi Engelberg Tourer Concept

The concept of Mitsubishi may have the weirdest name on the show. The Engelberg Tourer Concept promises robust looks with many LEDs, while the powertrain promises a noiseless electric drive. It not only gives us an idea of ​​what Mitsubishis will look like in the future, it should also give us more information about how they will drive.

I may not be sold with Mitsubishi's production style, but I'm excited about its concepts.


Mitsubishi

Nissan's IMQ Concept

Nissan's Futuristic IMQ Concept signals "what our design direction could be for Nissan's third generation of Crossovers in Europe," said the company's design vice president, Alfonso Albaisa. It does not necessarily signal a new model, but with a fancy front fascia and a lot of technology inside, there's certainly some insight on what to look out for over the next few years.

When it drives itself, I think it's not the case, a problem that people can not see.


Nissan

Peugeot 208

The Peugeot 208 is one of the great hatches of history, and there is much to love about the new. Not only is it absolutely adorable, it now has an electric variant that can travel up to 211 miles with a single charge (through European WLTP measurements). While Peugeot may be returning to the US this will not be the case for a while. If the 208 comes to the US, it's probably the generation after this.

Piëch Automotive Mark Zero

This startup took its surname from former VW chairman Ferdinand Piëch, but this electric car is only the foundation of this new company. The Mark Zero looks like a mix of an Aston Martin and a Porsche (reportedly) with a decent range and a low deadweight. When it comes to production, it should be a hoot.

The Swiss company shared this teaser image of its upcoming electric car.


Piëch Automotive

Pininfarina Battista

The Italian coachbuilder Pininfarina has its own production car. It is the $ 2 million Battista EV . A 120-kilowatt-hour lithium-ion battery pack delivers impressive 1,900 horsepower and 1,696 feet of torque. Pininfarina says the Battista can accelerate to 62 mph in less than 2 seconds and reach a top speed of 217 mph. Holy moly. Only 150 are manufactured for several global markets.

Polestar 2

One of the show's hottest anticipated cars is Polestar 2 the first dedicated EV of Volvo's spin-off power arm. It promises a range of around 275 miles through EPA measurements, a 408-hp electric motor and an interior that (unlike the Tesla Model 3) does not seem to be made by Fisher-Price. There is even an optional service package.

Porsche 911 Carrera S Cabriolet (992)

The 2020 Porsche 911 Coupé – the first of the 992 generation – has already been introduced and we have seen it in person. But Porsche has just shown the drop-top variant online. The 2020 Porsche 911 Carrera S Cabriolet will be appearing for the first time in Geneva. It is equipped with a turbocharged Flat Six engine that delivers 443 hp and 390 Nm of torque. It will be available with rear or four-wheel drive, the latter being one-tenth of a second faster than 60 mph and reaching 3.6 seconds in comparison to RWDs 3.7.

Puritalia Berlinetta

Random supercars are one of Geneva's staple foods. The Puritalia Berlinetta is not a car you've heard of, but it's still pretty impressive – or it should be. It is a V8 hybrid drive for 965 hp pack which is wrapped in a full carbon body. Only 150 are done, so it's probably pretty expensive.

Our first look at the limited, custom supercar.


Puritalia Automobili

Seat Minimo Concept

Even though it debuted on the telephone show MWC in Barcelona, ​​ Seat Minimo's concept will also occur in Geneva. This "quadrocycle" promises tight urban handling, while a hot-swappable battery system minimizes downtime. This is what Seat sees the future of urban mobility. What do you think?

Smart Forease + Concept

Building on the Forease Concept which debuted last year, the Smart Forease + Concept offers a detachable, hard fabric roof that supports the chopped roof a little more flexibility gives a complaint. It's pretty much the same concept as before, otherwise, though now a healthy dose of nappa leather is added as there is a roof to keep out the rain. It is fully electric and points to Smart's desire to switch to battery electric drives by 2020 alone.

Subaru E-Boxer Mild-Hybrid

In a lineup there is always room for hybrids. Subaru will prove this with its new E-Boxer series which will feature mild hybrids that offer slightly more efficiency than a gas engine alone. We've already seen the Forester E-Boxer, but we're not sure which other models Subaru will bring to Geneva.

Sweet badge.


Subaru

Subaru Viziv Adrenaline Concept

Subarus Viziv Concepts are sharp-edged previews of future Subaru design cues, and the Viziv Adrenaline keeps this theme alive. We've just seen one teaser, but it's big and aggressive, suggesting perhaps a faster ranger or, even wilder, the return of a WRX or STI hatchback. In any case, we are excited.

Subaru's Viziv adrenaline concept gives us strong crossover vibes.


Subaru

Toyota Corolla GR Sport and Trek

Toyota has two new variants of the Corolla available in Europe. The GR Sport is a pack of aggressive looks that can only handle the hatchback and touring sports variants of Toyota's best-selling passenger car. The Trek, on the other hand, takes the Touring Sports car and adds a small height that looks very effective with some body trim, such as the VW Alltrack.

This could be the best iteration of Toyota's new design language. It just works …


Toyota

Toyota Supra GT4 Concept

The Supra may have already caught on in racing series like Japan's Super GT and America's NASCAR, but with the GT4 concept the entry into privateering is considered. It's not yet confirmed, but if that's the case, one of the most affordable ways to track down Toyota's latest sports car would be to go down the road.

VW I.D. Buggy Concept

The bulk of VW's presence in Geneva will be rooted in reality, but there is always room for a fun concept. VW's Electric Dune Buggy Concept which looks like a modern version of a Meyer Manx. It's further proof that VW's upcoming MEB electric platform is capable of accommodating VW's wild idea.

Volkswagen will present in Geneva wagon variants of its new Passat . In addition to a new infotainment suite and another cool technology that we do not get on US Passat sedans, a new, semi-automated "Travel Assist" ride system is being packed. If forbidden fruits are your favorite, you do not want to miss them.

More cars? I see no problem.


Volkswagen

VW T-Roc R

It's a hot hatch, just bigger. The T-Roc R has a 2.0-liter gas I4 that is good for 296 hp and 295 lb-ft of torque. It will hit a speed of 62 mph in just 4.9 seconds, and 17-inch brakes should bring it to a quick stop. When production is reached, this is the top version for the small T-Roc, a small crossover we do not receive in the US.

VW Touareg V8 TDI

Neither TDI engines nor Touareg engines are available at VW The US lineup is not so, so we came to Geneva to fill up. The new VW Touareg V8 TDI uses an eight-cylinder oil burner that produces tremendous torque of 664 lb-ft (664 lb-ft) of torque. This two-rowed big boy can reach 62 mph in just 4.9 seconds, which is impressive. It's also full of tech if you can bring your thoughts past this torque.

Do not worry – you only have to wait 25 years for them to be imported into the US.
