Top 5 Concept Cars at the 2016 Geneva Motor Show

Article by Christian A., on April 15, 2016

Aside from production cars, car makers have also showcased a vision of the future at the 2016 Geneva Motor Show with the brilliance of their respective concept models, satisfying the fantasies of all enthusiasts around the world.

Listed below are some of the sickest concept vehicles that may hopefully one day make it to production.

Techrules TREV

All of Techrules’ offerings at the Geneva Motor Show showed off the company's turbine powertrain technology, with TREV standing for Turbine-Recharging Electric Vehicle. TREV, as much as it may sound like the Jaguar C-X75, is actually a range-extender hybrid along the lines of a Chevrolet Volt or a Fisker Karma.

The concept model delivers up to 1,030 hp, enabling it to accelerate to 62 mph in just 2.5 seconds with a top speed of 217 mph. These figures are not simply theories and may soon be realized as Techrules intends to further develop the TREV with shakedown tests around Nurburgring.

Pininfarina H2 Speed

Being the only major hydrogen-powered concept model for this year's auto show, the Pininfarina H2 Speed has proven itself to be an incredible work of art.

The good news is that there are actually plans to make it into a real racing vehicle. Former Formula One racer Olivier Panis even joined the team as the official test driver. Everyone in the motor racing industry is excited to see how this project will turn out.

ItalDesign GTZero

Contrary to popular beliefs, not all concept models at the Geneva Motor Show are meant for the racetrack. Like the ItalDesign GTZero, some concept vehicles are showcased just enough to create a buzz.

ItalDesign GTZero impresses with 483 hp, a shooting brake, and some aesthetic features that are slightly Lamborghini-esque. Aside from that, it also appeals to drivers because who would not want a vehicle that the only physical control access required lies on the steering wheel and parking brake alone?

Rimac Concept S

Rimac Concept S is basically an upgraded, sportier version of the Rimac Concept One. It comes with an improved power delivery of up to 1,384 hp from 253 hp. The weight has also been reduced by 110 lbs.

These key updates allow the concept model to accelerate 62 mph in just 2.5 seconds with a top speed of more than 220 mph. While the Rimac Concept One has now made it to production, there are still no confirmations that the Rimac Concept S will follow suit.

DS E-Tense

Capping off this list of highlights at the 2016 Geneva Motor Show is the DS E-Tense, a full-on EV. It comes with a 400-hp powertrain based on the same specifications found on the DS-sponsored Virgin Racing Formula E. Because of its excellent capabilities and features, car enthusiasts are hopeful that a production model will eventually come along the way.
