PERFORMANCE CARS

2015 Ferrari California T: Sure to be one of the show stoppers is Ferrari’s California T convertible sports car. The car is an updated version of the California and it’s the first turbocharged Ferrari road car since the legendary F40 supercar of the 1980s. Ferrari hasn’t released full details on its new California T but the automaker has confirmed the car’s engine delivers 552 horsepower and a massive 556 pound-feet of torque. The news gets better as the messy lines of the California’s exhaust and rear diffuser have been cleaned up significantly on the California T.

Ermini Seiottosei: Historic Italian sports car brand Ermini has been revived and will be showing its first new product in more than 50 years in Geneva this week. That new product will be the Seiottosei sports car, which has been developed together with ex-Formula One competitor Osella. The car will feature a lightweight tubular steel chassis and a 315-horsepower rating. A handful of teaser images reveal a retro-inspired design.

2014 Jaguar XFR-S Sportbrake: The Jaguar XFR-S is already an impressive drive. However, take its 550-horsepower drivetrain and pack it into the svelte body of the XF Sportbrake and you’ve got a surefire hit on your hands. That’s exactly what Jaguar has done with its latest XFR-S Sportbrake, which debuts in Geneva this week. Sadly, since the regular XF Sportbrake isn’t sold in the U.S., this one won’t be either.

2015 Bentley Continental GT Speed: Updates to the Bentley Continental GT Speed for the 2015 model year see the big bruiser earn the title of the fastest production Bentley ever. Yes, Bentley engineers have endowed the GT Speed and the GT Speed Convertible with even more power and torque, boosting the performance of both cars. The twin-turbocharged 6.0-liter W-12 engine fitted to the 2015 Bentley Continental GT Speed has been tuned to deliver 626 horsepower and a massive 607 pound-feet of torque, the latter of which is available from just 1,700 rpm.

Lamborghini Huracán LP 610-4: Lamborghini’s replacement for its aging Gallardo is the stunning new Huracán. The car features similar proportions to the Gallardo, but it’s producing more power, has a dual-clutch gearbox and a slightly lighter curb weight. Hop behind the wheel of the Huracán and keep your foot to the floor, and you’ll accelerate to 62 mph in just 3.2 seconds, pass 124 mph in 9.9 seconds and finally max out somewhere close to 202 mph.

McLaren 650S: We knew McLaren was planning a more hardcore version of its already extreme 12C supercar, but we never expected the car to take on a whole new look. In Geneva we’ll see the covers come off the McLaren’s new 12C-based 650S, which blends the outlandish styling of the P1 flagship with the svelte lines of the 12C. The car’s engine is delivering 641 horsepower, versus the 616 horses of the regular 12C, and while it has no more drag than the 12C it generates an extra 24 percent downforce at 150 mph.

2014 Opel Astra OPC Extreme: In 2002 Opel revealed a wild concept based on its Astra, which essentially packed all the best bits from various racing versions of the car into a single package that would be drivable on the street. Now, at the 2014 Geneva Motor Show, Opel will reveal a successor based on its latest Astra OPC, and this one’s been confirmed for limited production should demand be sufficient.

2015 Aston Martin V8 Vantage N430: Aston Martin’s Vantage line of sports cars is starting to get long in the tooth, but you’d hardly guess it judging by its new V8 Vantage N430. As you may have guessed, the “430” in the title represents the horsepower output, which the car’s dry-sumped 4.7-liter V-8 engine delivers at 7,300 rpm, just like in the V8 Vantage S. The engine is paired with either a six-speed manual or seven-speed automated manual with paddle shifters, and will rocket the car from 0-60 mph in just 4.6 seconds and see it reach a top speed of 190 mph.

Koenigsegg One:1

Koenigsegg One:1: One of the confirmed ‘hypercars’ for the upcoming Swiss show is Koenigsegg’s new One:1. The car gets its name from the fact that it develops one horsepower for every kilogram of its weight, and according to official info that weight will come in at 1,340 kilograms (2,954 pounds). That means the car is dishing out 1,340 horsepower, which should be enough to see it set some new acceleration records. Sadly, only six examples of the car will be built and all are already accounted for.

2015 Audi TT: Audi will present its third-generation TT sports car in Geneva, ahead of the car’s showroom debut later this year. Several teaser sketches reveal the design of the new car, which borrows some elements from the iconic original launched in 1998 but also packs plenty of new details such as LED headlights with Matrix Beam technology. The car will be launched in base and TTS trim, but we hope a high-performance TT RS version is eventually added.
