2019 Geneva Motor Show: What you need to know

By Chris Thompson, 02 Mar 2019 News

2019 Geneva Motor Show preview news

A running list of the cars revealed during this year’s show

With the 2019 Geneva Motor Show just around the corner, we’re compiling a list of what we already know, and what we expect to find out during the event.

Our list of cars here will be updated as cars are revealed.

Aston Martin 'Project 003' 

Aston Martin's Project 003 hypercar, reportedly known internally as the ‘Son of Valkyrie’ is expected to debut at Geneva this year.

The turbocharged hybrid from Aston will, according to prior interviews between MOTOR and the company's design boss Marek Reichman, rival the equivalent mid-engined supercars of the day - i.e. the Ferrari 488 replacement (see below) or the McLaren 720S.

Bugatti's Atlantic 'revival'

Bugatti is creating a car to pay homage to the missing Type 57 SC Atlantic once owned by Jean Bugatti.

The original car, known as ‘La Voiture Noire' will heavily influence the new car's design.

It'll likely remain a one-off, but its reveal should reinforce Bugatti's place as a builder of beautiful cars if the teasers are anything to go by.

Ferrari F8 Tributo

Effectively an extensive facelift of the Ferrari 488 GTB, the F8 Tributo takes the performance of the 488 Pista and applies it to a heavily redesigned body.

The same 3.9-litre twin-turbo V8 as seen in the Pista features, but 530kW (at 8000rpm) and 770Nm (at 3250rpm) are the headline figures.

Expect the first F8 Tributos to arrive in Australia towards the end of 2019 for around $500,000.

Koenigsegg new model

With a seven-month headstart on teasing the new model's arrival, it would make sense that Koenigsegg's next model - likely a Koenigsegg Agera RS replacement - will be revealed at Geneva.

While we know almost nothing about this car yet, we can be sure it'll be no slowpoke.

Lamborghini Huracan EVO Spyder

It's new new Huracan Evo, minus the top.

The same 470kW/600Nm naturally aspirated 5.2-litre V10 is found in the rear, but more than 100kg in rigidity strengthening means an extra two tenths to 100km/h - now 3.1 seconds.

 Top speed remains the same as the coupe at 325km/h.
