The Fast, Fancy, and Futuristic Cars from The 2018 Geneva Motor Show

Posted on

Geneva, Switzerland hosts the first big European auto show every year, which makes it a great place for carmakers to show off their new vehicles, especially the companies that reside on that content. This year’s show featured an interesting mix of electric cars and old-school combustion engines, some of which are insanely big and powerful.

Here’s a rundown of the cool new rides you may have missed if your boss wouldn’t let you jet off to Switzerland for the week.

McLaren Senna

This swoopy supercar gets its name from one of racing’s most famous drivers: Ayrton Senna, who died in 1994 after a crash at the San Marino Grand Prix. It uses a 4-liter, turbocharged V8 motor that pushes 789 horsepower. That’s a lot for a car that weighs roughly 2,700 pounds. All that power puts its acceleration on another level—its 0-60 mph time is a ridiculous 2.8 seconds. It’s a race car that crawls in just under the regulations that make it road legal.

Range Rover SV Coupe

Range Rover will only make 999 of these two-door SUVs, and each one will cost $295,000. All that money gets you a 5-liter, supercharged V8 engine with 557 horsepower. Its body is slung too low to rove many actual ranges, but it’s a unique ride if you have the cash.
