We sit just a handful of days from the opening of the press days at the 2011 Geneva Motor Show. Rapidly shaping up to be the blockbuster automotive event of the year, the show holds no shortage of enticing and downright awesome hardware to display. First up, the Lamborghini Aventador LP700-4.
The victim of wide-ranging leaks by self-serving print and online sources, the Aventador LP700-4 deserves better treatment. You'll get that treatment on Monday. Until then, relish the carbon fiber monocoque, rolling chassis, pushrod suspension, and a small glimpse of what will be the fastest Lamborghini ever built.
Porsche, on the other hand, is bringing its hybrid game. This time it's not KERS-powered racers or future supercars, but a very right-now edition of the Panamera--the S Hybrid. Like its Cayenne bigger brother, the Panamera S Hybrid sports a supercharged V-6, an electric motor, and more performance per mpg than just about anything on the market short of a Tesla Roadster.
