Ten Best Cars from the 2016 Geneva Car Show

As one of the largest and more celebrated car shows in the world, the 2016 Geneva Car Show has come to a close. Although there are many car shows like the SEMA trade show in Las Vegas that feature more hardcore vehicles and craftsmanship, the Geneva Motor Show is applauded for it's neutral location and don't typically favor any one manufacturer over another. Because there is no home field advantage, this allows exotic super car manufacturers as well as the big dogs to compete and bring out the best cars from the Geneva Car Show.

This is what makes the Geneva Car Show one of the most unique ones of it's kind. Because all the cars and manufacturer's must bring their A game, there's so many incredible cars and builds to choose from. Here's a quick look at our ten best cars from the 2016 Geneva car show.

1

Bugatti Chiron

Bugatti Chiron

As the eventual successor to the Veyron, the Chiron is the next incredible Bugatti super car. There was talk of the new Bugatti being an electric hybrid like the the Nissan Zeod or the Acura NSX, but the Chiron sticks to the traditional means of horsepower. While the hybrid electric conversion for the new Bugatti didn't come to fruition, the Chiron still boasts over 1500 horsepower with a top rated speed that's limited to 261 mph.

Ferrari GTC4Lusso

Ferrari GTC4Lusso

The next step and evolution of the Ferrari FF, the Ferrari GTC4Lusso is an incredible car with a head scratcher of a name. With more horsepower than the Ferrari FF and lightened chassis the Ferrari GTC4Lusso is one of the best cars at the 2016 Geneva car show.

Lamborghini Centenario

Lamborghini Centenario

With more than 750 horsepower, the limited edition Lamborghini Centenario successfully builds on the hallmark of supercar beauty. This special edition Lamborghini built on Ferruccio Lamborghini's birthday is a serious supercar and it's easily one of the most incredible looking cars at the Geneva car show.

4

Chevrolet Corvette Grand Sport

Chevrolet Corvette Grand Sport

This C7 Corvette is an ramped up Z06 with serious upgrades to the powerplant and stunning aero modifications to round out the complete package. This Chevrolet Corvette Grand Sport is easily the greatest blend of power, looks and performance. Based on the GEN IV LS engine found in the Stingray, and several suspension upgrades over the Z06 it's the best C7 Corvette yet.

5

Aston Martin DB11

Aston Martin DB11

James Bond never looked as good as this DB11 Aston Martin. Replacing the long standing DB9 as Aston Martin's incredible flagship supercar, the new DB11 continues the tradition of elegant supercar performance in a package that's hard to beat. Boosted by a 600-hp, twin-turbo, 5.2 liter V12 the new DB11 has definitely got a license to kill.

6

Opel GT

Opel GT

This lightweight combination of power and styling took the Geneva car show by surprise. Although Opel has stated that the lightweight performer is just a concept at this point, we can always hope. The incredible lightweight sports coupe tips the scales just above 2,000 lbs and backed by a 1.0-liter turbocharged three-cylinder engine, it's one of the coolest cars on this list. It's won't be breaking many speed records, with just 143 horsepower and 151 pound-feet of torque on tap however.

7

Spyker C8 Preliator

Spyker C8 Preliator

Spyker returns from the brink of bankruptcy with this wild build at the Geneva car show. In another attempt to revive the Saab brand, this vehicle uses a supercharged 4.2-litre Audi V8 with over 520 wheel horsepower. Looks aside however the Spyker doesn't have much going for it considering the low horsepower numbers. Certainly a rare vehicle that's not short on looks, the future of Spyker remains to be seen.

8

Fiat 124 Abarth Rally Car

Fiat 124 Abarth Rally Car

The Abarth is one of the more unique takes from Fiat, and now they'll be producing a 300 wheel horsepower model to take on the rallying world head on.

9

Porsche 911 R

Porsche 911 R

One of the most anticipated Porsches in recent memory, the R designation on this 911 is the first 4.0 liter model from the German automaker, and it's going to come with a manual only transmission. In the world of constant drive transmissions and shifter paddles, this is an incredible development for Porsche, who took time out from their Mission E to develop this new 911 R.

10

Apollo Arrow

Apollo Arrow

Gumpert is now Apollo and the Chinese owners are looking forward to reviving the De Tomaso brand in this striking Arrow build from Apollo. The Apollo Arrow uses a carbon monocoque body as it's base and is powered by a freakish 4.0-litre twin turbocharged V8 that peaks at over 1000 HP at 6750rpm. Color us impressed.
