International Geneva Motor Show 2016

Geneva Motor Show 2016 Reforma

The Geneva Motor Show is an annually held event, and is used by car manufacturers and customisers to promote their brand and products. The Auto Salon has been running since 1905 and has seen a lot of automotive history being made over the last century.

A wide range of automotive manufacturers were in attendance, such as Aston Martin, Audi, Bentley, Bugatti, Ferrari, Koenigsegg and Lamborghini, as well as many worldwide manufacturers.

Some big announcements were made in the world of supercars, such as the Lamborghini Centenario which celebrates 100 years since Lamborghini founder Ferruccio was born.

Rolls Royce announced they would be producing “Black Badge” vehicles, offering more customisation and options for existing Rolls Royce models such as the Wraith and Ghost.

Bugatti were displaying the new 1,479hp Chiron in a bright blue colour, fitted with gloss black wheels with a aluminium face. Only 500 vehicles of this model will be built, making it a reasonably exclusive hypercar, the Veyron having ended production at 450 units.

The DB11 by Aston Martin was unveiled, replacing the well known DB9 which was released over 10 years ago, in 2003. It features a new look that is clearly still inspired by the older design whilst adding modern touches.
