Top 10 Cars of the 2013 Geneva Motor Show

Top 10 Cars of the 2013 Geneva Motor Show

10. Volkswagen XL1

The opposite of all the carbon creating supercars on display in Geneva is this, the Volkswagen XL1. Billed as the world’s most fuel efficient car, it’s no concept. but rather an actual vehicle that Volkswagen will sell – though apparently only 250 will be made.

Exactly how efficient is it? Try 261 mpg! How is that even possible? Well, weighing just 1,750 lbs it’s a plug-in hybrid that mates a 47 hp turbo-diesel 2-cylinder with a 27 hp electric motor. Not only can it get that amazing fuel economy, but when operated on just electricity it can travel up to 31 miles emissions free.

    WTF Lambo..looks like it was put together by a bunch of kids..

  • Shindig

    So you’re saying it’s imaginative and original? #Cobsy’d

  • jet

    i believe he is saying its ugly and not appealing at all.. Generally im lambo > ferrari all the way but in this case that saying doesnt stand.. To much bat mobile in int?

  • Plato369

    Yeah got to agree on this one. They went too far into the extremes here. 

  • Bullish

    there were also supposed to be only 349 Enzos built until they decided to build a lot more LOL either way la Ferrari aesthetics are questionable even vs.the Enzo and you have to have a lot of confidence buying anything “electric” from the Italian auto makers 😉 As for exclusivity if you haven’t already purchased a Veneno you probably aren’t getting one from Lamborghini anyway.

  • Colum Wood

    They actually only built 50 more Enzos + ONE more. The 400ths was actually GIVEN to the Pope. He then auctioned it for charity.

    Now you know money talks & everyone else walks when it comes to trying to buy these cars,  too bad I was born & grew up poor, I just need millions to keep up with the sytle of living I would love to have,  maybe soon,  who knows????,  I sure don’t!!!  but these new vehicles sure do make me want to be rich!!!

  • Izzy

    That’s why you need to marry a rich uggo.

  • YTV Phil

    cant believe ferrari didn’t take number one. what are you, stoned out of your tree?

  • TuxedoCartman

    Very “exiting” product from the Korean brand, huh? So you think this will be the car that takes Kia off the world stage, shutters their doors, closes them down? Or did you mean to write “exciting”?

  • JL4356

    so your list of 10 supercars only has three supercars on it? I swear this site becomes more and more dumb every time I glance at an article. Do you really think that ugly 1.6L boxcar Kia is more exciting than that Koeni?

  • Daryl

    I have to agree with others that the lambo is fugly. The ferrari, despite it’s stupid name, is a much prettier car.

  • Ryan

     Although I definitely don’t care for the blue color, I’m a Pagani Huayra man myself.  I know there are probably a half dozen (or more) super cars out there that crush it, as far as top end speed & raw power are concerned, but I’ll trade some of each of those in exchange for such an aesthetic masterpiece. All the cars on this list are works of art, but the Huayra has a “crown jewel” quality that the others do not.

  • Asdf

    Hard to believe Ferrari’s follow-up to the Enzo is even uglier

  • Brandon Andrews100

    love the P1

    Your dumb this is no proof behind your Rambling. Quit Talking out your ass

  • Abe Froman

    Another list of paper thin econo-boxes, luxury sedans with a list of new gimmicks, and million-dollar fantasies. Not a single car appealed to me.

  • Alfie

    So you don’t like fast cars, cheap cars or luxury cars. Maybe you just don’t like cars.

  • Abe Froman

    I don’t like cracker jack POS boxes, and I don’t fall for the sales pitch of the BMW/Mercedes/Lexus etc. You pay for too much for far too little. The Ferraris and Lamborghinis appeal to me very much, but I just don’t have a spare million or two.
