Top 10 Rides of the 2013 Geneva Motor Show

Day two of the Geneva Motor Show has finally wrapped up, and as you can plainly see, we’ve been up to our gills in new vehicles from every automaker around the globe. Aston Martin, Ferrari, Lamborghini, Wiesmann, Volkswagen; you name it, we’ve got it.

But what 10 rides came out to shine at this years showing? Is the Ferrari LaFerrari our LaFavorite? Or is Lamborghinis $4.6M monster of a machine the top bull? Here’s our picks:

10. Mansory Ferrari F12 Stallone

As with any showing, Mansory comes up packing some heat. This year, along with its Aventador Carbondado, an all-new F12 Stallone came out to play sporting some signature Mansory design cues and 775-hp.

9. Chevrolet Corvette Stingray Convertible

Just one of many new specs of Corvette Stingray have made their pubic display. This time, a convertible showing up in Geneva.

The drop-top not only presents the all-new sportscar to curious onlookers, it continues to push Chevrolet’s attempt for success in the European market taking on Ferrari, Porsche and many others.

8. McLaren P1

This isn’t the first time we’ve seen McLaren’s F1 replacement the P1, but, it is the first time we seen it in full production guise and sporting a bright yellow suit.

The 2014 McLaren P1 is the much-anticipated 903-hp British supercar. At a cool $1.15M, the exclusive hypercar will be home only to a few wealthy buyers (or clever criminals) when it goes on sale later this year.

7. Porsche 911 GT3

Marking 50 years of the 911, Porsche introduced its all-new 911 GT3. It pumps out 475-hp and manages 60 mph in only 3.3 seconds.

6. Spyker B6 Venator Concept

Proof that Dutch automaker Spyker still had a beating heart at its helm came in the form of this B6 Venator concept. A more mainstream, 911-rivaling sportscar, the B6 was fitted with a 375-hp V6 and signature Spyker styling both inside and out.

5. Pininfarina Sergio Concept

In honor of late design chief Sergio Pininfarina, the Italian design house dreamed up an homage in the form of the Sergio concept. With a 570-hp 4.5L V8, it’s no slouch.

4. GTA Spano

Spain’s answer to the LaFerrari and the McLaren P1 comes in the form of the 900-hp Spano hypercar. Only 99 examples will be built when it goes on sale later this year.

3. Lamborghini Veneno

Lamborghini’s $4.6M Ferrari-eating, brain-melting Veneno hypercar is here, and it’s menacing. The massive 6.5L V12 is good for an astounding 740-hp and a 0-60 mph time of just about 2.8 seconds.

While all this performance does sound impressive, you will actually never be able to own it, even if you did have the cash flow. Lamborghini says that only three examples have been built and all of them are already sold out. Pity.

2. Ferrari LaFerrari

The biggest reveal with the dumbest name is by far the all-new Ferrari LaFerrari. With a 6.3L V12 hybrid powertrain capable of 950-hp and signature Ferrari styling, it’s LaPowerful and LaGorgeous.

All this will set back potential owners a measly 1.69 million LaDollars.

1. Italdesign Giugiaro Parcour Concept

While the Ferrari LaFerrari is swell, and the McLaren P1 is just dandy, for some reason, we couldn’t take our eyes off the Italdesing Giugiaro Parcour concept.

Granted, it may not be the most stunning thing ever built, but something about that design and the Lamborghini V10 coinciding together in one funky package; it just works, and it works great.

This everyday supercar can get to 60 mph in only 3.6 seconds thanks to the aforementioned 5.2L 550-hp Lamborghini Gallardo-sourced V10. As for production? Italdesign has yet to give us any hope on the idea…
