Geneva 85th International Motor Show

As diamonds are a woman’s best friend a man’s best friend is his car. I guess not many would disagree with this fact. Sure, there is an exception to every rule. But I’d say the majority of us are simply fascinated by the endless variety, the special charisma and for sure the still improving and changing technologies which cars impressively show. Driving leads us to breathtaking moments that change into emotional memories and therefore stay with us for a very long time. 
 
To get some new ideas and inspire yourself, the world famous International Motor Show in Geneva is the place to be. The event plays in the highest league of this kind of events. The whole ambience is beyond words. This week, I had the chance to visit the 85th Show.

The sun was shining and showed Geneva in all its beauty when I arrived in the early morning at the Palexpo hall. I was one of the first visitors and enjoyed it to the fullest. Knowing that there will be hundreds of visitors and an increase of the room temperature in a few hours, I just strolled around and had enough time to have a look at many of the cars in detail. I’d recommend you to do exactly the same, because at the week-ends there’s normally a huge rush. 

Bentley Flying Spur

One of the first cars, which caught my eye, was the Bentley Flying Spur. The new Bentleys look simply divine. The company has kept the shapes and forms of the past Bentleys but combined it with a big portion of harmony, power and elegance. At the end of the day, they remain true to their principles – only with a step into another more impressive direction.

The Flying Spur is masculine and classy. I can’t see a better combination than this. The violet/beige color combination could be called as risky but I have all the respect for this godly elegance.

Bentley GT Speed
 
The rear of the Bentley GT Speed with the double exhaust and the straightforward lines underneath is impressive.

McLaren 675LT
 
Holy cow! This is crazy power on 4 wheels! The 675LT is limited to 500 Pieces. And with a price of 356.696 Euro you need to use the petty cash.
 
It has a 3,8-Liter-V8 enginge with is producing 675HP & 700NM. With a weight of 1230Kg it is complete madness!

McLaren 650S

Same enginge as the 675LT, producing 650 HP.

This is the convertible model which reminds me of driving along the french riviera, with this breath-taking sound of the McLaren.

Lamborghini Huracán
 
They call it the Huracán.
Based on the maya mythology it was the god of wind, storm and fire.
 
And that’s exactly what you discover in this mental car. It is utterly fearless, a hurrican in the desert, an unleashed fearless power machine. Absolutely love it!

Rolls Royce
 
This is simply the infinite class. Wherever your eyes go, the most exclusive materials are not good enough. This is high-end, handmade extra-class!
They come up with features like a sky full of stars. Not in the stand but in the car! This is what I call endless beauty. You can even feel the passion and tradition, which lies in all this work. Utterly beautiful.

Before reaching the highest thrones, something very important is missing.
We’re not there yet. We’re moving towards perfection but we’re not there.

What’s missing? You’re right. A beautiful woman. One that let’s the stars shine brighter than ever. One that holds your breath when walking in.

And where can a gentleman and his woman possibly spend their week-end?
In a castle. It’s not just a castle, it’s THE castle. Astonishing doesn’t even describe this marvellous place.

Shine stars, make us brighter. Enlarge our passion. Make us flying through the universe. Deeper into the sea, further into the skies of the universe. Where everything ends and starts. Where all exists, where all is just one. Connected to each other.

Car review – Bentley Continental GTC
 
With a weight of 2,5 tons, this car is huge. And if I say huge, I mean huge in a very good way. Power and elegance, a real car for a gentleman. The purring V8 is producing 560 HP & 650 NM.

Snow? No Problem! It’s four-wheel drive supercar.

Interior Design
 
The cockpit of the Continental GT Convertible has been designed to provide tactile and visual delight, together with outstanding levels of comfort. Beautiful light brown leather on the seats, the chrome dials are one of the details I have really enjoyed.
