We all watched Felix’s supersonic leap to Earth in 2012 during his famous Red Bull Stratos Jump. Now, Baumgartner will tackle another challenging adrenaline rush, the famous Nürburging 24 Hour race later this year. He’ll be driving an Audi R8 LMS Ultra. Felix Will team up with past LeMans winners as he tries out do his latest challenge. He’s occasionally raced before, but this would be his first well-known and popular competition for the daredevil.

Sometimes, we’re looking for good deals in our Auction Car of the Week. Other times, it’s some unique vehicle you just don’t see every day. Today, it’s some of one and none of the other with this amazing 1966 Brabham BT8 listed on eBay. It’s got a Buy It Now price of $265,900, so it’s not exactly the kind of car you buy on a whim. But it might just be the coolest vintage racer on the ‘Bay of E’ right now.
In August of 2013, supercar manufacturer Gumpert filed for bankruptcy, after a deal fell through that could have saved the company. Formally known as Gumpert Sportwagenmanufaktur, it produced one of the maddest cars on the planet– the twin-turbo V8 Apollo. When the company went under, we thought we had heard the last of the astrologically named supercar, but it’s back– albeit as the base for another company’s product.
When Lexus unveiled the two-door RC coupe, it was clear that the Japanese automaker dared to be different. With a gaping mouth, a smooth body profile and a sharp rear-end, it’s arguably one of the prettiest coupes we’ve seen in a long time.
The McLaren 650S is the new middle child in the McLaren family– slotting in between the 12C supercar and P1 hypercar. In fact, they essentially melded the two together to form one all-new sporty supercar. But looks aside, the 650S is a performance car through and through — and oddly enough, McLaren is already showing off a convertible variant in Geneva.
Mansory is known around the world for some of the most creative and often insane vehicles customization projects. At this year’s Geneva Motor Show, they really outdid themselves. But in the best way possible.
As of late, Honda hasn’t been a brand associated with fun-to-drive cars. The new Civic Si barely satisfies our pallets for performance, but there is a a model worth caring about that has long been absent from the lineup. It’s the 280-horsepower Civic Type R (concept), and in this fiery guise, it looks epic.
Prior to the Geneva Motor Show, there was a rumor floating around of a sexy new Maserati coupe making its debut. It wouldn’t be the first time we heard that, so we took it with our standard grain of salt. But lo and behold, those rumors came true, in the form of the jaw-droppingly gorgeous Maserati Alfieri Concept.
There’s no question that a Ferrari is a very special vehicle, but not all Prancing Horses are created equal. When the Ferrari 458 was first unveiled, the motoring world loved it — but then LaFerrari debuted, and we kinda forgot about the 458. But Ugur Sahin Design’s latest custom Ferrari may have us drooling over the 458 yet again.
We’re more than ready for this year’s Geneva Motor Show. And that’s good news, because it seems like every automaker has pulled something out from under a sheet and prepared to show it off.
From the speed demons to the city dwellers, and from the supercars to the not-so-super-cars, here’s what you can expect at the 2014 Geneva Motor Show:
