It was bound to happen, despite the numerous images leaked during the past fortnight, and to ensure all eyes were on Lamborghini’s stand, the new Aventador LP700-4 was revealed last night at the VW Group pre-show party guaranteeing it the front-page position on Day 1 of the 81st Geneva Motorshow.
As the 81st Geneva Motor Show gets underway, Bentley announces today its most potent and radically styled convertible ever – the 202mph (325km/h) Supersports ‘Ice Speed Record’ convertible.

He reached a breathtaking 205.48 mph (330.695 km/h) in the Conti Supersports, breaking his own 2007 record of 199.83 mph (321.6 km/h) set in a Continental GT coupe at the same location.
As we continue to wait for the official press launch, more pictures leak out showing Lamborghini’s new V12-powered Aventador LP700-4. These most recent pictures provide a better view of a new Lamborghini colour, which we understand to be called Arancio Argos – and which in case you’re wondering is an orange rather than red hue.
When you hear that Italian car maker De Tomaso is back after a 7 year absence, you’d be forgiven for getting excited by the prospect – after all this is the same marque that gave us the Pantera GTS, a direct competitor in its time to Lamborghini’s Countach. But I’ve felt almost embarrassed to publish the story, less I betray the disappointment that surfaces every time I see pictures of the sensible looking De Tomaso SLS. It’s just not a De Tomaso though, is it?
Geneva would not be complete without a show car from German tuner and manufacturer MANSORY. Best known for the sheer extravagance of their work and the perfectionism of founder and company boss Kourosh Mansory, their cars have sometimes become known for their questionable taste rather than sheer desirability. MANSORY build bespoke products for their wealthy customers, whose personal taste sometimes reflects their unique view of the world..

Jaguar will launch its most powerful ever production car, at the Geneva Motor Show on March 1st.
This all-new XKR-S will broaden the appeal of the XK range combining GT luxury with incredible performance, with its more powerful supercharged V8 engine, uprated suspension and a new aerodynamic design. the XKR-S is the ultimate expression of Jaguar’s long held duality of purpose: GT luxury with incredible performance.
It’s been almost a decade since BMW’s less-than-diminutive MINI was launched and whilst it has been a tremendously successful model, the traditionalist have never embraced it as a true successor to the classic Issignosis Mini.
Just hours after Lamborghini’s official release showing us pictures of a rolling carbon fibre chassis, a picture has leaked onto the internet from the print layout of Evo Magazine Croatia.
We’ve shown you pictures of Ferrari’s new V12 four-wheel drive flagship model and brought you videos of it power-sliding in the snow, but tomorrow is the official debut of the most powerful and versatile Ferrari ever built.
It’s actually quite a refreshing change to see Lamborghini revealing its new V12 super sports car from the inside-out. If you think back to previous Lamborghini launches the focus has been firmly on the glitz, glamour and sheer celebrity of the car, which can be a frustrating experience for an enthusiast when all you’d like to see is someone crack open the throttle and silence all the polite conversation.
