This year’s Geneva Motor Show is one of the best for a while in terms of sheer numbers of new cars and first public viewings and Mr Metcalfe is just the man to give you a guided tour. His experience, knowledge and contacts make for a much more contemporary and interesting view on the in-and-outs of the automotive world than your average motoring hack is able to deliver so sit back, relax, enjoy and learn.

This year’s big stories

Lamborghini Huracan Performante

Reduced weight, a few extra BHP and a blistering (and disputed) ‘Ring record were the big story for many. We liked the new active aero system that directs split air flow over a fixed wing creating different levels of downforce on each side to improve handling.

 

Next generation Porsche 911 GT3

Not much of a secret – Porsche dealers let the cat out of the bag months ago – but the new GT3 will inherit the manual transmission and 4.0 litre engine from the 911R. Starting from £111,000 in the UK, 911 R premiums will no doubt come under the spotlight.

 

Pagani Huayra roadster

1285 KG, £2.2 million and sold out.

 

Alpine A110

A marque that any classic car enthusiast will cherish brings a Cayman rival to the market.

 

AMR

Aston Martin’s new performance brand has turned the Rapide into the world’s fastest production four-seater, taking the crown from the Bentley Continental. More lairy cars to follow. Aston Martin also displayed their newly-named Valkyrie hypercar – previously known as the AM-RB001

 

McLaren 720S

McLaren’s latest Super Series car represents revolution rather than evolution – almost into hypercar territory for £210,000……

 

Ferrari 812 Superfast

The 800 BHP normally-aspirated V12 successor to the F12.


YouTube index: Fast Forward to –  Lamborghini at 2:00, then Porsche 4:54, Bugatti 7:48, Pagani 9:01, Koenigsegg 11:34, Bentley 15:27, Alpine 18:45, Honda 20:05, Aston 22:10, Jaguar Land Rover 24:19, Rimac 26:20, Brabus 27:16, AMG 27:43, McLaren 29:53, Ferrari 32:31, Ruf 35:50

2017 has been the first year in a while that the Classic & Sports Finance team has been unable to attend – thanks to Ferrari, Koenigsegg and Spyker amongst others for making this possible in previous years (we’re free next year…).
