Top 10 Most Anticipated 2016 Geneva Motor Show Debuts

Top 10 Most Anticipated 2016 Geneva Motor Show Debuts

The 2016 Geneva Motor Show will kick off next week and there’s a lot to be excited about.

Often home to debuts of some of the world’s craziest and most exotic supercars, the Geneva Motor Show is also one of the largest auto shows in the world. Unfortunately, we now live in an age where the Internet plays a bigger role in car unveilings than actual auto shows, so many automakers now take advantage by unveiling their debuts ahead of time.

But that doesn’t mean there aren’t some that are still kept under wraps. We may have already seen photos for many of the debuts heading to the 2016 Geneva Motor Show, but there’s nothing like checking them out in the flesh.

10. Toyota C-HR


At an auto show where luxury cars and exotics typically rule, you might be surprised to hear we’re excited to see the production Toyota C-HR crossover debut. Well, that’s because the concept was pretty wild, and we’re really curious to see if Toyota is willing to take the risk or if it will turn to a more traditional body style for the production model. It will also be interesting since the C-HR was originally heading to the U.S. as a Scion model, but now the brand has been axed. Could it have saved Scion?

9. Honda Civic Hatchback


The newest-generation Honda Civic sedan is making some huge splashes around the world and we even named it‘s Car of the Year. Now that the Civic coupe debuted at the 2015 L.A. Auto Show, it leaves the hatchback variant as the only unknown. The Japanese automaker has sent out this teaser and from what we can tell, it’s going to be quite aggressive and might finally be a Civic hatchback worth waiting for in the U.S.

8. Maserati Levante


At one point, we wouldn’t fault you if you believed the Maserati Levante SUV would never become a reality. In 2003, Maserati debuted the Kubang concept previewing its plans to enter the SUV market, but nothing has come to fruition until now. Following a leaked photo, the Italian automaker released a few official photographs of its new Levante and we can’t wait to see it in person to gauge how it will fare in the luxury SUV segment.

7. Jaguar F-Type SVR


It is Jaguar’s fastest series production vehicle yet and the F-Type SVR will make its official public debut at the 2016 Geneva Motor Show. Getting a special treatment from the British automaker’s Special Vehicle Operations (SVO) division, the Jaguar F-Type SVR is capable of going zero to 60 mph in just 3.5 seconds and packs 575 horsepower and 516 pound-feet of torque from a supercharged 5.0-liter V8 engine. Yes please.

6. Aston Martin DB11


It has been spied, teased and leaked onto the Internet leading up to its debut. But the Aston Martin DB11 will finally be presented in Switzerland next week. As the next-generation DB model, the DB11 is rumored to sport a 5.2-liter turbocharged V12 engine generating around 600 hp. The British automaker previewed its styling with the DB10 in Spectre, and it will be interesting to see how much influence the company’s latest creations, like the Vulcan, has on its production cars.

5. McLaren 570GT


It’s no McLaren P1, but the McLaren 570GT is a supercar that focuses on practicality. Wait, what? We’re eager to see the McLaren 570GT up close to see just how much practicality it has, since the British automaker claims it is focused on “day-to-day usability and long-distance touring capability.” It is still powered by a 3.8-liter twin-turbo V8 engine like other McLaren models, pushing out 562 hp while tipping the scales at 2,976 pounds. But this particular model has a 7.7 cubic foot storage deck located behind the front seats that is accessible by a side-opening large glass hatch.

4. Koenigsegg Regera


Koenigsegg will actually bring a trio of cars to the 2016 Geneva Motor Show, and admittedly we’re not sure which one we are most excited to see. But the most reasonable one is the production Regera because the concept that debuted at last year’s show was amazing. There are supercars and hypercars, but Koenigsegg claims the Regera is a “megacar” making more than 1,500 hp. It will be interesting to see how much has changed from concept to production, since the Swedish automaker said it has made about 3,000 changes.

3. Pagani Huayra BC


Who doesn’t love a Pagani? The most hardcore Huayra model yet will bow at the 2016 Geneva Motor Show, gunning for other hypercars like the LaFerrari and McLaren P1. Limited to 20 units, the Pagani Huayra BC makes 789 hp and 811 lb-ft of torque from a 6.0-liter twin-turbo V12 engine sourced from AMG. Rumor has it that it is already sold out.

2. Lamborghini Centenario


Rumors of a special edition Lamborghini model to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the birth of company founder Ferrucio Lamborghini have been swirling since last year. The model has been reportedly shown to a special group of potential customers and will have around 759 hp (770 metric hp) and an all-wheel-drive system. Limited to 20 units, we spotted patent images on Europe’s OHIM’s website that gives us an idea of what to expect when the model finally gets unveiled next week.

1. Bugatti Chiron


With everything the Bugatti Veyron did for the supercar market, its next model is expected to do even more. The followup to the Bugatti Veyron will be called the Chiron, named after Louis Chiron, a Bugatti race car driver who won nearly every major grand prix in the 1920s and 1930s. Even though we’ve only spied the upcoming car, the French automaker hasn’t been quiet about its claims saying that it will be the “world’s most powerful, fastest, most luxurious and most exclusive production super sports car.” Powering it will be a quad-turbocharged 8.0-liter W12 engine and if it wants to be the world’s most powerful sports car, it will have to best the Koenigsegg Regera’s 1,500-hp claim.

Something tells us it’s going to be pretty hot at the 2016 Geneva Motor Show when the production Regera bows along with the new Bugatti Chiron. We can’t wait.
