Gallery: these are the wackiest cars of the Geneva Motor Show
We use the term ‘cars’ lightly - one is a 217mph V10-engined quad-bike
Founded in 1971, Sbarro has made a habit of turning up to the Geneva Motor Show with one mad-cap concept or another. This year though it seems they forgot all about it and had to hastily throw together some bits from the spare parts bin. We... we can't even.Advertisement - Page continues below
PAL-V Flying Car
According to its makers, the PAL-V is the ‘world’s first production model flying car’. You can even pre-order one online now for a base price of €299,000.
Golden Sahara II with Goodyear
The Golden Sahara II was an autonomous concept car from all the way back in the 1950s. As well as some interesting styling the original also included light-up Goodyear tyres, so the rubber makers have collaborated on its refurbishment and developed new translucent orange tyres for 2019. Why, we’re not so sure, but for some reason we’re still glad they did.Advertisement - Page continues below
Mole Costruzione Artigianale 001
Last year, an Italian company called Mole built a rebodied Alfa Romeo 4C. This is it above, and it’s absolutely gorgeous…
Mole Costruzione Artigianale Almas
The same company brought their own ground-up GT car to this year’s show too, and... it’s a little less gorgeous.
Arcfox-GT Track Edition
Ah, just another electric supercar promising 1,609bhp in this track-only guise. Next.
Engler F.F. Superquad
This is a quadbike. Quadbikes are dangerous. This quadbike has a 5.2-litre V10 making 850bhp, a top speed of 217mph and a 0-62mph time of less than three seconds. This quadbike is probably very dangerous.Advertisement - Page continues below
GFG Style Kangaroo
Viper, Stingray, Cobra. Naming your car after an animal can be a great idea. Welcome everyone then to the GFG Style Kangaroo. Oh.
Designed by the great Giorgetto Giugiaro, this is a 483bhp four-wheel-drive, two-door electric SUV. Just what the world needs then.
You know when you spend too long messing about with paint colours on a car configurator despite having no intention of actually buying the thing? Yeah.Advertisement - Page continues below
It’s lucky that the Puritalia stand wasn’t next to Piëch’s in Geneva, because this Berlinetta looks remarkably similar to the Mark Zero that was unveiled at the same show. With a 5.0-litre V8 in the front and an electric motor at the rear, this is a 965bhp hybrid.
Eadon Green Zanturi
This British grand tourer sort of looks like a concept that Rolls Royce might have made 20 years ago in an attempt to look ‘futuristic’.
Remember the Kalashnikov EV that was unveiled a few months back? This isn’t it. Does look a bit like it though. This is actually a 65-year-old design by the since-passed Italian architect Gio Ponti. It was brought to life by a group known as The Automobile by Ponti Project last year.
Estonian company Nobe want to make the electric car cool with this retro-styled three-wheeler. Have they been successful? Spew your thoughts in the comments.
e.Go Mobile want their little EV, the Life, to be every family’s second car for the city. Actually pretty cool looking isn’t it? Here at TG we love a car that’s built to serve one purpose as well as it possibly can.
Fornasari GT 311 Gigi
If you told us that we could have a Corvette with a body that had been re-styled in Italy to look like a 1950s GT car, we’d probably bite your hand off. That is if you told us before showing us this photo of the finished product.
