Giltrap Group Unsubscribe

Well I’ve just been to the 2017 Geneva Motor Show, which has been one of the best auto shows I’ve visited to date.

There were plenty of headliners to see such as Porsche with the new 991.2 GT3 (which speaks for itself) and the Panamera Sport Turismo (a wagon variant of the sedan); Volvo with an updated and very stylish mid-size SUV, the XC60; and Range Rover with the new Velar, a new mid-sized addition to line up - and because it’s from Range Rover, you know its cool.

On the supercar front, Lamborghini unveiled their track weapon, the Huracan Performante, which in fact has lapped the Nurburgring in the quickest time ever.

All these cars are so fantastic in their own right that I almost feel guilty to say the new McLaren is 720S was the absolute star of the show. I believe this car is the car that has taken the biggest leap forward over its predecessor, the 650S. The performance will be phenomenal (as expected), but the styling is something else - more in the hypercar territory.
People often say I shouldn't make comparisons or criticise; arguably the Ferrari 488 is the benchmark and a great looking car, but trust me when you look at the McLaren 720S, it looks like it’s in a different league.

As always, see below for this week’s cool cars and great deals.

2014 Porsche 911 Turbo

This car has travelled 14,000kms by one owner and is in immaculate order.

Great eminence does not come from making grand statements. Sometimes a single appearance suffices. For the 911 Turbo, this occurred at the 1974 Paris motor show. This vehicle’s power and presence proved to be a sensation.

In times of an oil crisis and automotive restraint, Porsche showed uncompromising attitude. Based on a systematic approach. With the first production turbocharged sports car. The world held its breath. And does so whenever a new 911 Turbo makes its début. And it’s the same this time.
