Hi all, After months of talking about it, the highly anticipated Koenigsegg One:1 is due to celebrate its debut at Geneva Auto Show 2014 i.e we are just a few weeks away from its official reveal. The Koenigsegg One1 is the most extreme Koenigsegg yet and will be limited to only 6 units of which all have been sold already.

The Koenigsegg One:1 features carbon fiber wheels, a new front fascia with a more aggressive lower front splitter and a fixed roof with an air scoop made of carbon fiber. At the rear, you will see a massive rear wing along with a completely redesigned rear end, a new diffuser and a central exhaust outlet. The roof and the wing are linked by a carbon fiber tail fin similar to the Pagani Zonda 760 RS.

Supercars would dominate the 2014 show.

Also look out for for the following cars!

1. Audi
The wraps would come off the 3rd Generation TT.
Hints at the TT's coupe and roadster variants could be joined by a crossover version inspired by the Allroad Shooting Brake concept unveiled earlier in January. Audi will also debut the S1, a higher-performance variant of the Europe-only A1 subcompact.

2. BMW
BMW's minivanlike 2-series Active Tourer, the first front-wheel-drive production vehicle.
BMW will also debut its 4-series Gran Coupe, a four-door car with coupelike styling.

3.Ferrari
Ferrari has restyled the California coupe-convertible and added a turbocharged engine. Ferrari has achieved virtually zero turbo lag in the California T.

4.Hyundai
The Intrado fuel cell concept vehicle previews Hyundai's future styling direction .

5. Fiat
Jeep's new subcompact model will be the brand's first vehicle built only outside of the United States. The "baby" Jeep will be produced at Fiat's plant in Melfi, Italy, alongside a sibling model, the Fiat 500X. Will be unveiled later at the Paris Motor show.

6.Lamborghini
The Gallardo replacement in the form of Huracan .
The Huracan's 601-hp, 5.2-liter, V-10 naturally aspirated engine has 49 hp more than the Gallardo. It has an aluminum body but makes extensive use of carbon fiber within the bulkhead, floor and roof to shed weight. The Huracan borrows various design elements from the larger Aventador, including its distinctive LED-accented headlamp and taillamp graphics.

7.McLaren
McLaren Automotive will unveil the 650S, a model it claims to be the fastest, most engaging, best equipped and most beautiful series-production supercar yet.

8. Mercedes-Benz
The S-class coupe appearing in Geneva replaces the current coupe version of the S class, which is called the CL. It has all of the new safety and convenience features of the S-class sedan that went on sale in October, along with an added feature that Mercedes calls active curve tilting.

9.Qoros In September, the Qoros 3 compact sedan became the first China-built model to receive a five-star rating under the European New Car Assessment Program testing protocol.
In Geneva, Qoros will debut a hatchback version of the car. Qoros has started sales in China and Eastern Europe but says the United States is not yet a target market.

Here are the leaked pictures of the Volvo Concept Estate.

Quote:
In essence, it's a different body style of last year's stunning Coupe Concept, featuring a full length roof housing a large glass pane and ending with a traditional tailgate.
Volvo also made some updates to the more spacious in the rear interior that gains new colors and materials.

Cheers!

T-ROC concept, a crossover that would sit below the Tiguan. Based on Volkswagen’s MQB architecture – the same platform underpinning the MK7 Golf and new Audi A3 – the concept only weighs 3,130 lbs.

All-wheel drive and is powered by a 2.0-liter turbo diesel engine that sends 184 hp and 280 lb-ft of torque from 1,750 rpm through a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission. Volkswagen says the concept would accelerate from 0-62 mph in 6.9 seconds and offer a top speed of just over 130 mph. It also claims fuel consumption as low as 4.9 liters per 100 kilometers (48 mpg) on the European cycle.
