Spyker has taken the wraps off its latest sports car at the 2016 Geneva Motor Show, the new Spyker C8 Preliator. This third-generation Spyker sports car features as standard a Head-Up Display (HUD), which is typically found in fighter jets – a nod to the sports car maker’s aviation heritage.
Its name is only fitting, as "Preliator" means "fighter" or "warrior" in Latin and “Fighters” are warplanes that Spyker built between 1914 and 1918. Moreover, "Preliator" has come to symbolize the challenges that Spyker had overcome in the past few years.
A personification of Spyker’s vaunted craftsmanship, the new Spyker C8 Preliator is designed for clients who know the value of bespoke features and the attention to detail of vehicles that Spyker has built in the past and have offered to the public for 15 years now.Read the entire article Fighter jet-inspired Spyker C8 Preliator debuts at 2016 Geneva Motor Show
Spyker will unveil a redesigned D8 Peking-to-Paris super-sports utility vehicle at the 2014 Geneva Motor Show -- eight years after the original concept made its debut at the Swiss expo. Spyker found a new momentum to finish the ‘P2P’ project after forming a joint venture with Youngman. Spyker contributed the intellectual property rights and technology of the P2P, while Youngman invested EUR25 million to complete the project.
Spyker chief executive Victor Muller told Autocar that although they have already completed engineering the P2P, they still need to build the tools and put the super-SUV into production. Muller expects to sell a maximum of 1000 examples of the D8 Peking-to-Paris premium SUV in emerging markets like China and Russia.
He noted that so far, no carmaker has marketed a mid-engined super-sports vehicle with four doors and four-wheel drive. He remarked that while the D8 P2P will be “very usable,” it will be also be a “beast.” Spyker will start focusing on the P2P after it has signed off the B6 Venator, a 375bhp V6-powered sports car it unveiled at the 2013 Geneva motor show.Read the entire article Spyker to unveil redesigned D8 P2P at 2014 Geneva Motor Show
Spyker has unveiled the B6 Venator concept at the 2013 Geneva Motor Show. A report by The Wall Street Journal gave us more information about this concept, which will be competing with the Aston Martin V8 Vantage. It comes with a price tag of around $150,000. The new Spyker B6 Venator is named after the Latin translation for hunter.
The B6 Venator features new LED accents and Spyker’s signature V-mesh grille. The name “Spyker” is also written in the same script used on the brand’s 1903 60 HP race car. The Venator pays homage to Spyker’s aircraft manufacturer history by giving it an interior that takes inspiration from an airplane. Its interior, which uses aluminum and leather, comes with the automaker’s signature exposed gear change mechanism.
It also gets an engine start button disguised under a red cover. The B6 Venator is powered by a mid-mounted V-6 that’s coupled with a six-speed automatic transmission.Read the entire article Spyker B6 Venator Concept live at the 2013 Geneva Motor Show
Spyker introduced today at the 2013 Geneva Motor Show the all-new B6 Venator Concept, a compact, 2-door mid-engine sports car that promises to resurrect the well-known Dutch manufacturer. The concept was designed by Victor R. Muller, Chief Executive Officer of Spyker N.V., and according to the official press release, it features a highly detailed design, bespoke materials and aviation-inspired elements are a core part of the Spyker DNA.
The name Venator, means Hunter in Latin and evokes Spyker’s “Hunter” fighter aircraft of the early 20th century. Some of the exterior details include the trademark radiator grille’s mesh is V-shaped, inspired by the models of the Spyker models of the previous century, but also the 1903 Spyker logo which reminds us of the era when Spyker built racers such as the amazing 60HP.
Moreover, we find the aerodynamically shaped glass aircraft canopy, as well as the 3D rear lights that are inspired by the iris-type after burners of a jet engine from a modern fighter aircraft. The brake light is sculpted into the rear panel design, in order to ensure smooth, following design lines. The exterior design is completed by the 19” TurbofanTM wheels shown in polish finish.Read the entire article 2013 Geneva Motor Show: Spyker B6 Venator Concept is official
Thanks to Wall Street Journal, we were able to see the first photo today with the new B6 Venator Concept. Set to make its official debut next week at the 2013 Geneva Motor Show, the new Spyker B6 Venator Concept is a mid-engined sports car powered by a V6 engine delivering 375 hp and mated to a six-speed automatic transmission.
The concept car has an aluminum chassis and a carbon-fiber body, which translates into a total weight of under 3,080 pounds. The weight-to-power ration is 8.21 pounds per hp, a little better than the Porsche 911 Carrera. Still, Spyker CEO Victor Muller says that the B6 Venator Concept is not a 911 Killer and anybody who says that is crazy.
As you can see from the photos, the new Spyker bears a striking resemblance, in profile and in specification, to the Lotus Evora S. Still, Muller declined to say who is the powertrain supplier. Moreover, Muller played the role of the designer for the B6 Venator Concept and many of the details seen on older models will be seen on the new car, such as the aluminum dash, exposed gearshift mechanism and the quilted leather.Read the entire article Spyker B6 Venator Concept revealed ahead of Geneva Motor Show
When Bugatti took the veil off the Chiron in 2016, it was well expected that the French carmaker would create versions of the sports car. Then, the carmaker unveiled the track-focused Bugatti Chiron Sport at the Geneva Motor Show in March 2018. But it seems Bugatti isn't finished yet, as it is reported to be planning to reveal an extreme version of the Chiron at the 2019 Geneva Motor Show.
According to our sources, Bugatti has plans to build an extreme version of the Chiron that even surpasses the Divo. It seems that a number of VIP customers were given the privilege of getting a good glimpse of the new upcoming version of the Chiron through sketches shown at the unveiling of the Bugatti Divo at Château Saint-Jean. As report, Bugatti described this new extreme version as “a beauty of speed” as well as a “ground-to-ground Missile”.
Chiron’s predecessor, the Bugatti Veyron was gifted with an extreme version that held the record for being the fastest street-legal car for more than seven years – the Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Super Sport. This version features an engine that can deliver 1,200 PS (1,184 hp or 883 kW) of max output and 1,106 lb.-ft. (1,500 Nm) of peak torque. It managed to achieve a top speed of 267.856 mph (431.072 km/h) to set a new record, only to be broken seven years later.Read the entire article Extreme version of Bugatti Chiron might be unveiled at 2019 Geneva Motor Show, says report

Mercedes-Benz is set to unveil the new X350d 4Matic X-Class at the 2018 Geneva Motor Show. It was back in July 2017 when the brand first premiered its pickup which utilizes the chassis, as well as certain body panels, of the Nissan Navara. However this version is set out to be the most expensive one yet.
This new model has a six-cylinder engine and the 4MATIC permanent all-wheel drive. Specifically, the new X-Class is fitted with the turbodiesel 3.0-liter V6 engine that benefits from the common-rail direct injection. With this, it can deliver an output of 258 hp (190 kW) with top torque measured to be 406 lb.-ft. (550 Nm) and available at 1,4000 rpm and up to 3,200 rpm.
As a comparison, the highest specification of the biturbodiesel V6 engine fitted in the Volkswagen Amarok is only able to deliver 224 hp (165 kW). In addition, while the amount of torque is similar, it is available beginning 1,5000 rpm. Paired to this engine is the 7G-TRONIC PLUS automatic transmission having steering wheel shift paddles as well as the ECO start/stop function. This transmission has been modified to allow it to transmit 60% of the available torque to the vehicle's rear wheels to result in a rear-based configuration, highly suitable especially for a pickup truck.Read the entire article Mercedes-Benz unveils X350d 4Matic X-Class at 2018 Geneva Motor Show
Exactly one year ago on March 6th, Lamborghini decided to finally reveal the Huracan Performance at the 2017 Geneva Motor Show. This year, the automaker decided to get rid of the coupe’s roof for the same event that is held yearly in Switzerland. The Spyder pretty much has everything you would want in the fixed roof model, but only this model can pull off this type of body style, with the open top.
Even with the company’s same Aerodinamica Lamborghini Attiva (ALA), the soft top Spyder has not been hampered in any way. The reason for the ALA is for it to create the sleekest body possible and consequently boost performance. The droptop Huracan also borrowed the coupe’s revised four-wheel drive system, along with an upgraded suspension and the optimized stability control.
Aside from that, Lamborghini’s engineers gave the droptop a lot of forged carbon fiber bits to cut down a total of 35 kilograms (77 pounds) over the standard Huracan Spyder, while also fiddling with its steering. The model now weighs 1,507 kilograms (3,322 pounds) when dry - distributed 43:57 front/rear. The fabric roof can then be lowered at speeds of up to 30 miles per hour (50 kilometers per hour).Read the entire article Lamborghini Huracan Performante Spyder arrives in style
The ever growing compact luxury crossover segment has something new for us again, as Lexus revealed the production ready UX at the 2018 Geneva Motor Show. Physically, it may not be as flamboyant as its namesake from 2016, but it will definitely still stand out in a crowd of compact crossovers.
Lexus UX has a huge corporate spindle grille that will truly catch one’s attention on the road. It also features full width taillights that make it look unique. In fact, this has been fitted by at least 120 individual LEDs. It sits on a set of either 17- or 18-inch alloy wheels that were specially made for the crossover. This has also been tweaked in the wind tunnel to improve airflow.
The UX isn’t just about its good looks. Instead, it rides on the company’s newest GA-C platform, which makes handling much easier. As for the car’s dimensions, it is 177 inches (about 4.5 metres) long, with a 103.9 inch (2.63 metre) wheelbase. The company also boasts a segment-leading turning circle of 34 feet (10.3 meters).Read the entire article 2019 Lexus UX debuts in Geneva with a new look and platform

The Mercedes-AMG S63 – both in its sedan and coupe guises -- is a high-performance luxurious ride that offers 612 PS (603 hp or 450 kW) of max output and 900 Nm of peak torque. These massive numbers are already considered as the higher levels of performance, but people at Brabus believe more can be done to further increase these figures. Turning belief to reality, the well-known German tuning company created the new Brabus 800 Sedan and Coupe as based on the AMG S 63 4Matic+.
As its name indicates, the Brabus 800 Sedan and Coupe based on the AMG S 63 boasts of 800 PS (789 hp or 588 kW) of max output from the heavily upgraded AMG 4.0-liter V8 biturbo engine. The peak torque level has already been boosted from 900 Nm to 1,000 Nm (737 lb.-ft.) as available at just 3,600 rpm. An untouched AMG 4.0-liter V8 biturbo engine is already powerful enough to send the AMG S 63 – both sedan and coupe versions -- sprinting from nil to 100 km/h in just 3.5 seconds and achieving a top speed of 250 km/h.
But the upgraded eight-cylinder mill with its boosted power allows the Brabus 800 Sedan and Coupe based on the AMG S 63 to dash from true zero to 100 km/h in just 3.1 seconds, which is 0.4 seconds quicker than their regular counterparts. As for the top speed of the Brabus 800 Sedan and Coupe based on the AMG S 63, these tuned units could go as fast as 300 km/h (186 mph). For those seeking a faster unit, Brabus is currently working hard to create some tweaks to allow the Brabus 800 Sedan and Coupe based on the AMG S 63 to go a lot faster.Read the entire article Brabus transforms Mercedes-AMG S 63 into menacing 800 Sedan and Coupe

Tesla surprised the automotive world in November 2017 when it unveiled a new electric car that could go from zero to 60 mph in an astonishing 1.9 seconds. Now, Rimac Automobili is pulling off a better surprise by unveiling a new electric car that could achieve the sprint in an awe-inspiring 1.85 seconds. Let us all welcome the new Rimac C_Two hypercar.
Rimac unveiled this new electric hypercar creation at the 2018 Geneva Motor Show, implicitly announcing itself as true challenger to Tesla. The carmaker essentially created some noise when it introduced the Rimac Concept One coupe. As per Rimac’s Web site, the Concept One boasts of 1,224 hp (918 kW) of max output and 1,600 Nm of instant torque. This power allows the Concept One to sprint from nil to 62 mph in just 2 seconds. Compared to the Tesla Roadster, the Rimac Concept One is a slow machine, but the Croatian carmaker was just getting started.
The new C_Two could be considered as the next stage of evolution for Rimac in terms of electric car development. It is superior compared to the Concept One in many aspects, including power and performance. Just like the Concept One, the C-Two makes use of four electric motors. However, the power output and torque levels of the motors in the C-Two are much higher, at 1,914 hp (1,408 kW) and 2,300 Nm, as backed by a 120-kWh capacity battery pack with 6,960 cells.Read the entire article New Rimac C_Two is an electric hypercar that could sprint to 60 mph in just 1.85 seconds
Mercedes-AMG GT fans and enthusiasts got really excited when the carmaker unveiled the AMG GT Concept a year ago in Geneva. This four-door coupe concept was meant to preview a production version that blends a coupe design with sedan practicality. A year later at the 2018 Geneva Motor Show, the performance brand has taken the wraps off that production model – the new 2019 Mercedes-AMG GT 4-Door Coupe.
The excitement buildup before the big reveal was real, and the new AMG GT 4-Door Coupe didn’t disappoint. It was the model that people had been expecting but it managed to go beyond expectations. For instance, the new AMG GT 4-Door Coupe looks nearly the same as the AMG GT Concept. There are some differences in styling, of course, but in the end, the resemblance isn't surprising, as both models follow the design philosophy of Sensual Purity.
AMG reinterpreted the striking proportions and muscular body, as well as the sensuous shapes and convex surfaces of AMG GT Coupe to a stunning effect fitting for a four-door version of the high-performance car. Just like other members of the AMG GT family, the AMG 4-Door Coupe features an AMG-specific grille, Shark Nose, slim Multibeam LED headlamps and a front bumper with a Jet Wing. It also borrows an element from AMG GT R – the Airpanel, which is basically composed of radiator shutters in front of the center cooling air inlet. It also boasts of a flowing silhouette defined by a lowered greenhouse, frameless side windows, a windscreen inclined to the rear, tailored upper contours, broad shoulders and pronounced rear wheel arches. On the rear, the AMG 4-Door Coupe is marked by slim LED taillamps and an extendable rear spoiler.Read the entire article 2019 Mercedes-AMG GT 4-Door Coupe appears at the 2018 Geneva Motor Show
The racetrack-bred Zenvo TSR has been so awe-inspiring that some drivers are aching to take it to the streets. But they couldn’t, as the TSR isn't designed to be legally driven on the streets. However, Zenvo Automotive is unveiling a new version of the TSR that could be legally driven on the streets – the all-new Zenvo TSR-S.
Zenvo intended the new TSR-S as a street legal version of the TSR, which is why it bears the ’S’ in its model name. It is the third model in Zenvo’s TS (Twin Supercharged) model lineup and is basically a crossover between the TS1 GT car and the TSR, marrying remarkable on-road capabilities and utmost exclusivity. After all, Zenvo is planning just to build five examples of the TSR-S a year – a testament to its exclusive nature. The Danish high-performance carmaker has already commenced production of the new TSR-S.
In terms of design, the new TSR-S looks very similar to its two TS siblings. Its overall appearance is more aggressive than the TS1; yet, it is less menacing than the TSR. Just like the TS1 and the TSR, the new TSR-R features an advanced aerodynamic design. However, its development was focused on delivering unmatched levels of driving dynamics.Read the entire article Zenvo TSR-S is a 1,177-bhp racetrack-inspired street-legal hypercar
