The Geneva motor show just ended yesterday and the show had some awesome cars, ones to die-for! I have been away for some time, traveling to the Geneva Motor Show, in my dreams. I am firm believer that dreams do come true, especially if they are of some of the most expensive cars in the world :-)
I am actually going to list down some of my favorite and really thrilling cars seen at the Geneva Auto Show for your ‘driving’ pleasure . . . (no pun intended). Oh, and since I have stargazed of so many of them, I am splitting the post in to two. (Technorati: W7MHR6JCPVEA)
Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Grand Sport Vitesse; Price: $2 Million

Synonymous with speed, the Bugatti Veyron has always been THE sports car to buy, die for! And now, the company launched, a meaner, more muscular, Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Grand Sport Vitesse convertible, an open to sky version of its sports model. This Bugatti is a super expensive convertible, which is powered by a roaring 8.0-liter, quad-turbocharged W16 engine, lifted out of the Veyron Super Sport and plucked to produce an amazing 1,200 bhp and a top speed of, deep breath, 410 km/h!
Lamborghini Aventador J; Price: $2.75 Million

What does the name Lamborghini mean to you? For me it is about a really low-swung, symmetrically designed, super expensive car . . . that’s a complete waste of money!! :-)
Ok, just kidding. The Lamby is an astounding brand of superfast luxury cars. And the new Aventador J is no different from its predecessors; expect that is quickly garnering the tag of being the most expensive supercars so far and has been sold to an anonymous buyer. The Lamborghini Aventador J is fitted with 6.5 L V12 engine to produce around 700 bhp of power with a top speed of 186 mph. Two of the best features of this car (according to me) are the lack of windshield and air-conditioning.
Aston Martin V12 Zagato; Price: $516,789

I have to admit, I have always been fascinated by, and a little in love with, James Bond. I loved the suaveness, the panache, and just the sheer magnetism of the spy’s personality. But I also loved, envied, his cars, especially the Aston Martins. So when I saw the all new Aston Martin V12 Zagato, also one of the more costly cars so far, I was blown away by the looks and the price! The Aston Martin V12 Zagato is a great mix of good design, long lineage, and futuristic technology. Power packed, the V12 engine coolly produces 510 bhp of power to propel the car to hit a high of 190 mph. The Zagato can achieve 0 to 60 mph in just 4 seconds!! That’s insane! Hand-crafted, the AM V12 Zagato is available in 4 different colors - Scintilla Silver, Alloro Green, Alba Blue, and Diavolo Red. Only 150 Zagatos are planned to be manufactured.
Ferrari F12 Berlinetta 2012; Price: TBA
|Ferrari F12 Berlinetta|
The 2012 Geneva Motor Show witnessed the launch of the super sexy Ferrari F12 Berlinetta. And if rumors are to be believed, this Ferrari is supposed to the fastest F ever built. Taking inspiration from the Ferraris - FF, 599 GTB Fiorano & 550 Maranello, the F12 Berlinetta has a V12 engine to get a thrust of 750 bhp, a F1 dual-clutch transmission, and capability to achieve a max. speed of 211 mph! The Ferrari F12 Berlinetta uses the new carbon-ceramic brakes designed by the company.
My mind is reeling! I am losing control!
It’s time to pull the brake on this post.
I think I need to go slow…all that talk of speed is making me making me feel giddy! Pant...Pant...
