Traditionally, the Geneva Motor Show is opening the series of new car presentations every year in Europe. The scene meets and exchanges. Spectacular concepts are presented and many a new model has its world champions. We take a look at the variety of the new Supercars, which gave their rendezvous at the fair.
Aston Martin Valkyrie
The name Valkyrie origins from the Nordic mythology and refers to the death-announcing spiritual beings of the battlefields. Probably, however, the name refers rather to the monstrous 900 hp that the 900 kilogram light Aston Martin brings on the road, which will teach many fellow competitors the fear. The Valkyrie is a partnership between Aston Martin and the Red Bull Formula One team. The power station is a V12 engine with Formula 1 technology. 150 individual pieces will be build, of which 25 will be used for racing, for example in Le Mans. Price of this hypercar – about 3 million euro.

The design is puristically adhering to the classic shapes of the legendary DB5 and every connoisseur knows that the initials DB are exactly for David Brown, the genius that once made the Aston Martin brand. A direct connection to Aston Martin, however, does not exist. The Speedback is based on a Jaguar XK and is equipped with a 5 liter V8 engine with around 510 hp. The production is to be limited to 100 copies. The price: about 450,000 dollars.

For the first time, the electric motors are operated in a vehicle with 800 volts. The 2,000 newton meters of the Swedish racing car are brought to the rear axle by a Direct Drive Concept.

Newly tuned aerodynamics and more PS, these are the catchwords for the new McLaren 720S. As the initials already indicate, the successor of the 620S now has a power of 720 hp. It is to form the top of the Super Series and there will be another 15 models in the next 5 years. Including electrified model and also a convertible. The so-called Air Ducts are used to route the wind around the vehicle via ducts, thereby optimizing the air resistance. The McLaren 720S thus receives 30 percent more downforce. A rear spoiler, adjustable in three steps, can be adjusted depending on the driving situation. This gives the 720S increased agility and perfect road conditions.

The 1000 built copies will only be available in India. The almost 380 millimeter sports car with a power of 190 hp will not be able to take it with the Hypersportcars, but it has a special feature. Tata calls it a “phygital” vehicle, in which the digital worlds merge with the real vehicle. A sports car for pure technology nerds. On the dashboard three monitors as displays, full network, Navi and Live updates via Microsoft technology. The Indian sportsman was designed in Italy. The small 900 kg lightweight sports car is powered by a three-cylinder engine with 210 newton meters at 2500 rpm. The sprint to 100 km / h creates the Indian Bolide in 10 seconds.
A hypersport car with three passenger seats and 1000 hp presented by Techrules. The three seats are arranged side by side and as in McLaren, the driver sits in the middle. This allows a balanced weight distribution. The GT 96 is a pure electric vehicle with a promised range of 2000 kilometers, with 700 kilometers being purely electric and the rest being reached by a diesel engine. The four electric motors act on all four wheels. 80% of the load capacity should be reached in 15 minutes. At the end of 2017, only 25 copies of the Techrules GT96 will be built.
The hypercar named Dendrobium – named after an orchid genus from the tropical and subtropical areas of East Asia – is being built in Singapore. It is the very first hyper-sports car developed and built in this Asian region. The Dendrobium consciously incorporates all elements of an orchid flower into the shape of the vehicle. Lines and shapes create a play of light and shadow. The building materials carbon fiber, aluminum and glass intensify the resulting aesthetics of lines and curves, which give the Dendrobium a biting and awesome impression. The designers are still silent about performance data, but a powerful performance of the unit designed as an electric drive can be taken, because most of the technology is developed by Williams Advanced Engineering, the well-known F1 racing forge.
