Geneva Motor Show: Four fast, fierce and fabulous rides
Automotive excellence and indulgence
From limosines and special editions to sportscars and racecars, the Geneva Motor Show has revealed some of the fastest, fanciest and most luxurious machines on wheels. Buro 24/7 Middle East has the list of top cars, which were put under the spotlight in Geneva.
Bentley Mulsanne Grand Limousine by Mulliner
Any Bentley with the Mulliner badge is a step above ordinary but with the Mulsanne Grand Limousine, the automaker is setting a new benchmark in automotive luxury. The full extra metre in length from the stock Mulsanne allowed Mulliner craftsmen to work their magic, creating a bespoke four-set configuration at the back, which is complemented by the softest leathers and intricately handcrafted wood. As for privacy, the smart glass technology onboard allows the windows to turn opaque at the touch of a button.
Rolls-Royce Black Badge
The stately Rolls-Royce Wraith and Ghost just received a dose of Rock'n'Roll as the luxury automaker announced its pioneering Black Badge programme. Designed for those who seek mystery in regality, the Black Badge includes a black Spirit of Ecstasy, generous use of carbon fibre in the interior and wheels that took four years to develop. Add mechanical upgrades into the mix and Rolls-Royce gets a whole new personality that is sure to attract a much younger audience.
First unveiled as a concept at last year's motor show, the Koenigsegg Regera is now ready to hit the streets. Within the past year though, 3000 changes have been made to the original concept, signalling the intensive detail that went into the production of this highly anticipated car. Numbers-wise, the Regera hits 100km/h from rest within a mere 2.8 seconds.
Lamborghini presents its future with the Centenario, complete with its most powerful engine to date. Built to commemorate what would have been Ferruccio Lamborghini's 100th birthday, the founder of the automaker, all 40 units of the limited edition car have been sold for Dhs7 million. Talking about the tribute car for the automaker's founder, Automobili Lamborghini President and CEO Stephan Winkelmann, said: "It is the most fitting tribute to Ferruccio Lamborghini in his centenary year: a man who created an exceptional brand, believed that anything was possible, and produced extraordinary, iconic cars. The Centenario is a super sports car for Ferruccio Lamborghini and the future he and we believe in today."
