Up first: The Ferrari 458 Speciale A. The ‘A’ stands for “aperta,” meaning the open-top version of the 458 Speciale. With tons of style and serious handling to boot, it’s a promising addition to the Pracing Horse stable.
Next, the Infiniti Q80 Inspiration Concept, a preview of a 550-hp, 40-mpg large luxury sedan. It’s ambitious, but promising for the Japanese luxury brand’s future.
Not to be left out of the fun, Lamborghini unveiled the Asterion LPI 910-4 hybrid supercar. Packing 910 hp and up to 31 miles of all-electric range, it joins the P1, 918 Spyder, and LaFerrari—but can it compete with them?
Among the more interesting unveilings was the Volkswagen XL Sport concept. Weighing less than 2,000 pounds and sporting a 197-hp Ducati V-twin engine, it’s the futuristic lightweight sports car of many of our dreams.
A slew of other new cars and concepts were also unveiled, including:
- The 2015 Ford Focus ST and Focus ST diesel
- The 2016 Fiat 500X
- The Nissan Pulsar NISMO Concept
- The 2015 Porsche Cayenne S-E Hybrid
- The 2015 Bentley Mulsanne Speed
