2013 Geneva Motor Show Preview

The team at William Loughran Ltd will soon be on route to see what the Geneva Show has to offer. Here are some of our long awaited cars which will be launched to the world press. 

The Alfa Romeo 4C - is the latest attempt to re-launch the Alfa brand in the US. Its going to be the baby brother to the beautiful 8C Competizione which has the same V8 engine as the Ferrari F430. The new 4C is stunning and will have a 4-cylinder 1.7 litre turbocharged engine. We have to wait until launch but it may have a price tag of around £50,000 in the UK.

The Aston Martin Bertone Jet 2+2 - its a shooting brake version of the Vanquish which has been created by Bertone to celebrate Astons centenary & 60 years of collaborations between the two brands. This four-seater car has the same 5.9-litre V12, but is finished with a gracefully shooting brake body.

Aston Martin Rapide S - Aston has face-lifted their Rapide and given it a power increase of 17%. A wide-mouthed one-piece front grille and a more pronounced tail flip are two of the more obvious visual differentiators. They will launch the car at the Geneva Show as their most powerful 4-door to date.

Bentleys MK 2 Continental Flying Spur - fitted with the same 6 litre twin-turbo W12, the new Flying Spur is sharper with clean-cut lines, muscular rear haunches, and a lower roofline. Further details and prices will be announced at the official debut.

The new Ferrari - The Italian company say their new limited edition car will be unveiled on March the 5th. Little information is known about the car which will replace the Enzo. Rumours suggest that it has a V12 engine with KERS-style hybrid technology to help it deliver around 900hp.

McLaren P1 - The all new hyper car produced by the British Formula One team which will boast a total of 903bhp from its 3.8-litre twin-turbo V8. It is suggested that no more than 375 will be produced, each with a price tag of £860,000.

Rolls-Royce Wraith - It will join the Phantom and the Ghost as the most powerful Rolls-Royce to date. The name Wraith was last used in 1938, company CEO said: The Wraith alludes to an almost imperceptible but powerful force, something rare, agile and potent, a spirit that will not be tethered to the earth. It is the perfect name for our new model.

We will keep you up to date as the show goes on throughout the week. No doubt that the new Ferrari will steal the show.
