We’ve seen them all at this year’s Geneva Motor Show. SUVs, sedans, hatchbacks and even sports cars. But what about the hidden surprises? Manufacturers with small operations and cars that have come straight out of fiction or fantasy…well here then is our list of top quirky cars at the Swiss motor show.
Another day and another manufacturer attempting to build a machine that will break the 400kmph barrier. While this may sound increasingly common, what we like about the Corbellati Missile is that it’s got a massive engine at the back, a six-speed manual gearbox and looks that go along the lines of the original Le Mans winning Ford GT from the 1960s.
There are small cars, big cars, sports cars, hyper cars and then there is this, which is a flying car! The Pal-V Liberty is part Osprey and part racing car. Despite being in a certification stage, the company has said that it has a range of 500km, maximum climb height of 3500m and you need a pilot’s license to be able to legally operate it.
David Brown Speedback Silverstone Edition
Ah… a home built British Sports car. These are usually very good looking, loud, fast and usually a lot of fun to drive and this one seems to be fitting the bill. The Speedback Silverstone Edition is a sporty edition of the standard Speedback thanks to a more powerful engine, fancy body kit, 601bhp and a price tag of 744,000 GBP (Rs 6.7 crores).
It’s advertised as a affordable modular car. This means that with the Sin S1, unlike its hybrid and supercar siblings (Sin R1), you can remove the top hat off the chassis and change the body style! You can change the interiors, engines and obviously the badges too.
