2018 Geneva Car Show

If you are looking for the most impressive future and concept vehicles from the most prominent car makers in the business, Geneva is the place to be; specifically, the Geneva Motor Show.

This year’s show featured a focus on electric and hybrid vehicles, as that is where most of the advancements in the automotive industry are taking place. Of course, even though this is the focus, you will still come across some very impressive supercars that were revealed at the show, so bear with us.

Rimac Concept Two

Since the theme of this year’s show is electric vehicles, it is only fitting that we start off with one of the most impressive electric cars in the world.

Rimac Concept Two

The Rimac Concept Two is the successor to Rimac’s Concept One, the first Croatian supercar in the world as well as what is commonly seen as the first electric supercar. The Rimac Concept two is supposed to have an acceleration of 0 – 60 mph in around 1.9 seconds, which is due to the electric drive.

Bugatti Chiron Sport

While the Bugatti Chiron has been released for some time, but now the much-anticipated Sport model has arrived. Whenever Bugatti releases a Sport version of their newest vehicle, the world takes notice.

The Chiron Sport has been made around 40 pounds lighter than the base Chiron through the judicious application of carbon fiber in its construction. Until the inevitable release of the Super Sport version of this car in the 2020s, it is likely that the Chiron Sport will be the most impressive version.

Toyota GR Racing Supra Concept

If you’ve missed the famous Toyota Supra, then you’re in luck, though it may not be the kind of car that you are anticipating. While this racing version of the vehicle is certainly not road legal, it gives us a glimpse of what we can expect from the next generation of this car.

While there are not too many details about this concept vehicle, it is satisfying to get a glimpse of what you can expect from the new Supra model, and it’s looking like it will be impressive.

Lamborghini Huracan Performante Spyder

If you are a fan of Lamborghini’s convertible vehicles, the Performante Spyder version of the Huracan is something to look forward to. While there have been convertible Huracans released up until this point, this will be one of the best-performing models thanks to several improvements.

For example, this vehicle is heavily lightened when you compare it to the standard version of the Huracan thanks to the use of many carbon fiber panels that greatly reduce the weight.

McLaren Senna

For those of you McLaren lovers out there, the Senna is the newest top-range vehicle from the famed manufacturer of high-end performance cars. The Senna will be considered equal to both the P1 and the F1, as both of those vehicles make up the manufacturers top-end “Ultimate Series.”

Alongside the regular version of the Senna, the Senna GTR was also recently unveiled, and it sold out shortly after going on sale. As you can see, the market for a new McLaren supercar is open and willing.

Porsche 911 GT3 RS

There are those who will say that the 911 GT3 doesn’t deserve the title of supercar, but we strongly disagree with that point of view. When you pack 520 horsepower into a small, rear-engined vehicle like a 911 and combine it with Porsche’s famed handling, you get something incredible.

The GT3 RS has long been the most popular performance model of the vehicle, as it is slightly more manageable than its GT2 counterpart. Here’s hoping that this year’s model will be as impressive as ever.

Ferrari 488 Pista

Just when you thought that Ferrari has already done everything possible with the 458 chassis, there comes a new version of the 488. When Ferrari released the 488, many derided it as a 458 with a different exterior, but over time, those critics discovered just how wrong they were about the car.

The new Pista variant of the 488 is designed for use on the track, and it features several updates that make it better-suited to performance use. As a bonus, this car is also road-legal.

Corbellati Missile

While it is possible that you have heard of all the manufacturers on this list up until this point, Corbellati is a little more obscure. This Italian car maker is new to the world of supercars, but if the Missile is anything to judge them by, they are a refreshing blast from the past.

The first thing you will notice when you take a look at the Missile is its stunning resemblance to 60s racers like the Ford GT40. In addition to that, the car is expected to top out at 300 mph, though that remains to be seen.

Lagonda Vision Concept

Aston Martin’ Lagonda Vision Concept gives us the renowned English car maker’s take on the all-electric car. While this car may not be a traditional supercar, it is certainly one of the more impressive all-electric vehicles that we have ever laid eyes on.

Few cars can have the same shape as the Lagonda Vision due to its total lack of the mechanical parts that you will expect to find in cars run by internal combustion engines.

Koenigsegg Regera Ghost Package

Even though the Koenigsegg Regera has been out for quite some time, this new version of the car unveiled in Geneva seems like the best-performing version of the unmodified Regera.

All that has been added to the vehicle with the Ghost Package is a range of aerodynamic improvements that help make the car exert far more downforce; an invaluable aid in track situations.
