2014 Rolls-Royce Wraith Targets the Bentley Continental GT?

2014 Rolls-Royce Wraith

Based on the current Rolls-Royce Coupe, the new 2014 Rolls-Royce Wraith offers the same shooting brake-style roof as the gorgeous Bentley Continental GT and even has its rear part clearly inspired by the archrival’s sporty grand-tourer. The price is very different, though. Unveiled this week during the 84th Geneva International Motor Show in Switzerland, the car will probably go on sale in Q3 at an estimated price of some €250,000: almost 1.5 times more expensive than the current Continental.

2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray Convertible

2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray Convertible

Yesterday in Geneva, Switzerland, General Motors has officially pulled the wraps off its new and shiny 2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray Convertible. Besides a huge V8 that uses less than 14 liters of gasoline per 100 kilometers in a combined cycle, the new convertible also features a “fully electronic top” that lets you open or close the roof remotely using the car’s key fob. Now, that’s nice.

2007 Clio Renaultsport Mk III hot hatchback

2007 Clio Renaultsport Mk III hot hatchback

The 2007 Clio Renaultsport Mk III hot hatchback that was first revealed during the 2006 Geneva Motor Show in Switzerland will go on sale in a matter of weeks. The car will reach the dealerships by the end of the month.

Clearly based on the Clio RS Concept that was revealed last year, the new vehicle features a streamlined exterior with noticeably lower ground clearance and huge air outlets in its front fenders (although, to be frank, I am not sure whether the vents actually have holes in them to be able to let the air out). Larger and heavier than the previous iteration of the vehicle, but still delightfully compact to be easily parked even in Paris and backbone-shatteringly stiff to swallow even the tightest corners like marshmallows, the new car definitely deserves your attention even despite its Spartan interior and lack of that level of craftsmanship that always comes in the same package when we are talking about premium priced vehicles.

2007 Chevrolet Epica to be revealed at Geneva 2006

2007 Chevrolet Epica to be revealed at Geneva 2006

The new 2007 Chevrolet Epica family sedan is going to be officially premiered in Switzerland in a couple of weeks at the upcoming 2006 Geneva Motor Show.

Soon to be offered exclusively for the European drivers that continue to suffer not only from high fuel costs, but can also only dream about American prices for cars with their huge engines and spacious interiors, the new vehicle will be offered with a choice of just two low-displacement diesel engines and will sport pretty Spartan interior finish with lots grey plastic, grey faux leather and grey faux aluminum inserts here and there. Well, while the car with its generic design will certainly fail to impress any person that didn’t live under the rock during the last twenty years, it still delivers a nice combination of relatively low price and just enough comfort features to make your miserable life a tad more bearable.
