Geneva

  • To celebrate its 110th anniversary, Bugatti is revisiting a racing car icon. As a collaboration between Bugatti and Junior Classics, the Bugatti Baby II is an electric 3/4-scale tribute to the Type 35 and the original Bugatti Baby model it spawned – only 500 will be made.
  • Renault has unveiled a special edition Alaskan pickup truck at the Geneva Motor Show in Switzerland. The Alaskan Ice Edition will be a limited offering of the pickup coming later this year. Custom features and two-tone paint mark it apart from other Renault Alaskan models.
  • The latest Ginetta supercar is the Akula, a 200 mph, 600 bhp two-door monster modeled after the G58 prototype race car from the same company. Not satisfied with mere English words for the new car, Ginetta looked to Soviet Russia for a fitting name, using the Russian word for “shark.”
  • Citroën’s latest solution to increasingly crowded urban centers and urban mobility is a boxy electric two-seater concept imagined as an alternative for buses, bikes and scooters, even for those without a license to drive.
  • Peugeot has revealed the next-gen 508 ahead of next month's Geneva Auto Show, showing off a lower and more compact coupe-inspired sedan. The sportier five-door fastback is promised to bring better aerodynamics to the D-class segment, and packs the automaker's future-focused safety tech onboard.
  • Italdesign is no stranger to show-stopping special editions, but the Zerouno must be among its prettiest designs. Having launched in Geneva, the first example has arrived with a lucky owner in Italy. And soak up the very public handover, because you shouldn't expect to see the car on public roads.​
  • After months of teasing, concepts and previews, Alpine has pulled back the sheet on the hotly anticipated A110 ahead of its Geneva debut. We still don't know how much power it'll have, but the mid-engined two-seater is certainly a looker with some cool details hiding under the retro styling.
  • Just two days ago, we told you about the Alpina B7 Biturbo. You'd think it occupies a niche market, but already it's got some company from BMW's M team in the form of the new M760Li xDrive, a long wheelbase luxury sedan with a twin-turbo V12 under the hood.
  • Opel will use the upcoming Geneva International Motor Show in March to debut its latest iteration of the popular Mokka SUV. Dubbed the Mokka X, the vehicle will feature a new exterior, a redesigned interior, a next generation engine, and loads of connectivity.
  • Swiss watchmaker Vacheron Constantin is claiming the title of the most complicated mechanical watch ever made with its Reference 57260. Boasting 57 complications (the previous record holder has 33) and a wide array of functions, the Reference 57260 contains over 2,800 components.
  • Morgan, a company so steeped in anachronisms it makes a Lotus 7 look like the space shuttle. Morgan is still using wood as part of the chassis. Old in style and affectation it might be, but Morgans can haul the mail, and woe unto anyone who thinks otherwise. Just look at the new Morgan Aero 8.
  • Those with good enough memories will know that 450 was always the planned number of Veyrons Bugatti was going to make before shutting down the line, and that 450th and final Veyron will be on the stand next month in Geneva.
