- Geneva Motor Show 2014  -

Geneva, March 2014 -

1 - Exclusive Performance Cars.
The Geneva Motor Show has established a tradition to introduce limited production exclusive high performance cars. In 2013, it was the time for Ferrari LaFerrari, Lamborghini Veneno or McLaren P1. In 2014, Koenigsegg introduce an Agera One:1 with a claimed top speed of 273 mph (440 kph) with a limited production of six car that were sold out before the opening of the Motor Show. We are wondering where it is possible to drive a car at such a speed. Pagani exhibited the last version of the Zonda designated Revolucion and limited to three cars. Bugatti showed its Rembrandt Bugatti Legend edition Veyron Grand Sport announced for three cars only. The new Zenvo ST1 from Denmark entered the exotic high performance car selection for the first time at an International Motor Show. Fortunately, the show is not limited in such million Euros special cars and a wide selection of high performance less expensive automobile was exhibited for different sales prices and no limit in production. This year, it was possible to view brand new sports cars like McLaren 650S, Jaguar F Type, Chevrolet Corvette ZO6, Lamborghini Huracan, Ferrari California T or Alfa Romeo 4C Spider.

2 - Next Alternative Propulsion: Hydrogen Fuel Cell Vehicles in limited production in 2015.
Hydrogen Fuel Cell Vehicle Story starts with the 1966 General Motor Electrovan. Since year 2000, several Main Car Manufacturers launched Research & Development Programs for Hydrogen Fuel Cell Vehicles. Hydrogen is stored under pressure in a storage tank. It is fed together with oxygen from air to a Fuel Cell that produces electricity, water and heat. The on-board generated electricity is utilised for an electric drive to propel the vehicle. Lenghty battery charging time and limited operating range is avoided but there is a need for Hydrogen production and distribution. Several Hydrogen Highway are under implementation in several countries, like Scandinavia (Norway, Sweden and Denmark), Germany, Japan or the United States (essentially California). Daimler Benz, General Motors, Toyota, Hyundai or Honda have developed several prototypes for field testing. In 2009, Daimler Benz, Toyota, Honda, Hyundai and the Renault Nissan Alliance have announced that they will launch in 2015 a limited production of hydrogen fuel cell vehicles that should be leased in selected areas where Hydrogen Highways will have been implemented. At the Geneva Show, Toyota, Honda and Hyundai have been presenting prototypes and Design Studies to illustrate what they intend to introduce for 2015. For further details on Hydrogen Fuel Cell vehicles, see the interview of Yoshikazu Tanaka, Planning and development leader for hydrogen fuel cell vehicles at Toyota Motors Corporation.

3 - Present Day Racing Cars.
The Geneva Motor Show has often been an opportunity to discover racing cars away from the track. This year, Porsche introduced its brand new 919 Hybrid  LMP 1 before its starting in the WEC (World Endurance Championship). It was also possible to discover racing cars engaged in World Championship like the Volkswagen Polo WRC, the Hyundai i20 WRC or the MINI ALL4 Racing that won the Dakar Rallye Raid for the third time in a row. Nissan exhibited its ZEOD RC that will participate at the 2014 Le Mans 24 Hours in a special classification for innovative vehicle. Lexus announced its intent to enter GT3 competition in 2015 with a Lexus RC F GT3 in early development. It was the occasion to see the Peugeot 208 that won the Pikes Peak challenge.

4 - Design Studies, Concept Cars and new models. A wide collection of concept cars and design studies is, on every occasion, a tradition of the Geneva Motor Show. The 2014 edition was no exception. Some innovative prototypes were presented like the Quant eLimousine with brand new electric energy storage system or the Kia Soul EV. Maserati introduced a striking Alfieri Concept for its 100th Anniversary. The Sbarro Design School presented several new projects including a Sbarro Royale propelled by two Chevrolet V8 connected end to end and intended for wedding ceremonies. The European Design Institute proposed a design study prepared by its students at the request of Hyundai.

5 - Historic Racing Cars Exhibit.
Historic racing cars exhibit is always a chance to visualise the evolution of the automobile. The 2014 Geneva Motor Show was the occasion to view several historic racing cars and in particular some twenty endurance racing cars that won Le Mans 24 Hours between 1923 and 2013.

- Toyota FCV Hydrogen Fuel Cell Design Study for 2015

Geneva, March 2014 - Here is an exerpt of Press Conference Speech by Karl Schlicht, Executive Vice President of Toyota Motor Europe. "In 2014 and 2015 alone, we will launch 15 new or renewed hybrid models and we are expanding both the number of hybrid powertrains, and the regions where they will be sold. But there is more. Our unique hybrid history and experience has proven invaluable for the next big leap. You will remember back in 2010, we promised our first Fuel Cell car for 2015. We are fully on track to honour our commitment- no delays!

Hydrogen Fuel Cell is a technology that can secure our concept of personal mobility. That's because Fuel Cells combine the strength of EVs and Hybrids, with those of conventional cars. That is zero emissions - they only emit water vapour. That is full usability as refuelling takes about 3 minutes!

As well, hydrogen offers many advantages itself. It enables easy storage and buffering of renewable energy - better than batteries. And it can be produced anywhere, bringing employment and stimulating local economies. So-you can easily understand why we are convinced that Fuel Cell can deliver our ultimate goal of zero emissions and sustainable transportation.

The FCV we have here, clearly hints at the design of the 2015 model. Its fuel cell stack has an energy density of 3 kW per litre, the highest density currently available. It produces more than 100 kW for uncompromised performance, especially as the motor provides instant torque. With a real world driving range of over 500 km and super quick refuelling. It can be used just like any vehicle today.

Of course, some will say there are many roadblocks and challenges: infrastructure, awareness and cost.

So there is of course a long way to go, as with game-changing technology. But remember, the same was said about hybrids only ten years ago.

- Audi TT Quattro Sport Concept

The Audi TT quattro sport concept embodies the dynamic potential of the new Audi TT in its purest form. Its two-liter TFSI supplies 309 kW (420 hp), which the car puts on the road via the quattro all-wheel drive.

“With our Audi TT quattro sport concept show car, we wanted to demonstrate what the new TT’s technology can do if you take it a step further,” explains Prof. Dr. Ulrich Hackenberg, Board Member for Technical Development. “This car is designed for racing – an extreme driving machine for the motorsports enthusiasts among our customers.
The engine in the Audi TT quattro sport concept makes a powerful statement. The 2.0 TFSI has a power output of 309 kW (420 hp) at 6,700 rpm – a new benchmark in the two-liter category. Its specific output is 155 kW (210 hp) per liter of displacement – that’s more than even 2001’s victorious Le Mans R8 racing car, which was the first time Audi combined turbocharging with FSI direct gasoline injection. The four-cylinder engine has 450 Nm of torque (331.9 lb-ft) available in the engine speed range from 2,400 to 6,300 rpm. with over 300 Nm (221.3 lb-ft) already available at only 1,900 revs.
At a curb weight of 1,344 kilograms (2,963.0 lb without driver), the Audi TT quattro sport concept is an athlete in peak condition. Each hp supplied by the two-liter TFSI, which itself weighs under 150 kilograms (330.7 lb), needs to shift less than 3.2 kilograms (7.1 lb). The four-cylinder engine catapults the show car from 0 to 100 km/h (62.1 mph) in just 3.7 seconds.

A significant part in the Audi TT quattro sport concept’s lightweight design is played by the body, which is based on the MQB modular transverse matrix. Its hybrid concept represents the latest evolution of the Audi Space Frame (ASF) and further lowers the car’s center of gravity compared with the second-generation series-production TT.
The front end is made of steel. The passenger compartment floor comprises high-strength, hot-shaped steel components which, thanks to their extremely high strength, feature very low wall thicknesses and thus weigh accordingly little. The compartment’s structure, the entire exterior skin, and the doors and lids are made of the classic Audi semi-finished aluminum products cast node, extruded profile, and sheet metal.

- Instituto Europeo Design (IED) PassoCorto Hyundai Design Study

Instituto Europeo Design (IED) developed the PassoCorto Concept at the request of Hyundai. PassoCorto has a very sporty profile. A concept car with a technical but evocative name, intentionally requested to be in Italian by the Hyundai Design Center Europe as a tribute to the Made in Italy design that is studied at the IED. PassoCorto, the tenth full scale model created by Istituto Europeo di Design of Turin, is a sports car, extremely compact in size. Designed by the Master in Transportation Design - work experience IED Turin - a.y. 2012/13 in collaboration with Hyundai, it was revealed in world preview at the 84th International Geneva Motor Show. The Korean car manufacturer gave to the Institute a design brief with its target potential customers being those born between the eighties and the early years of this millennium: the young people who are always connected, those of 2.0, known as generation Y. This very target market also includes the students on the Master's asked by Hyundai to draw and design “the car of their dreams”, one that would be top of their list for buying and driving. The car designers therefore put themselves into the shoes of automotive professionals and also the potential purchasers of their own design. This is how the PassoCorto was created, in a year - 2014 - that, in addition to the tenth full scale model, will also see the Institute celebrate 20 years of the Transportation Design course and 25 years of activity in the region.

- Cadillac Elmiraj Concept

GENEVA – Among Cadillac’s highlights at the 2014 Geneva Motor Show is the Elmiraj Grand Coupe, which was displayed in Switzerland for the first time. The concept provides an insight into how Cadillac’s design studio envisions performance and luxury for the next generation of discerning drivers.
Influenced in particular by the 1967 Eldorado, the Elmiraj is a modern update to the classic format of a two-door grand coupe - a pure expression of streamlined design and engaging rear-wheel drive performance.
The Elmiraj concept advances Cadillac’s philosophy of dramatic design and performance and strengthens the brand’s commitment to lightweight, agile cars. At 521 cm ( 205 inches )in overall length, the four-seater commands presence and poise, taking up where the memorable Ciel concept left off.
A long wheelbase and clean body sides underpin the Elmiraj’s spacious dimensions and premium credentials. The grille sports the new edition of the Cadillac emblem. The latest update sharpens the focus on the crest and reflects the evolution of Cadillac’s Art and Science philosophy.
The chassis is constructed from structural elements of an ongoing Cadillac vehicle development project slated for future production. This new vehicle architecture reinforces the brand’s pledge to lightweight RWD performance, which is exemplified in the ATS sport sedan and coupe, and the all-new 2014 CTS, launching in Europe in spring 2014.
The Elmiraj is propelled by a 4.5-liter twin turbocharged V8 engine delivering an estimated 500 hp and 680 Nm of torque. Inside, the concept features a 2+2 layout with high-performance seats, designed to support spirited driving while also delivering comfortable seating.
The instrumentation features an analog tachometer and speedometer that are transparent. A wide screen high resolution display, which projects driver information and images from a front-mounted camera, sits directly behind the analog gauges. A 10-inch touchscreen for navigation and connectivity can be concealed inside the instrument panel when not in use.

- QUANT e-Sportlimousine Electric nanoFlowcell Prototype

- nanoFLOWCELL AG  staged a world premiere as part of the Geneva International Motor Show 2014: the QUANT e-Sportlimousine - the first car equipped with nanoFLOWCELL® drive. With the new QUANT, head of development Nunzio La Vecchia and his team of engineers and designers are presenting a very special research vehicle: At over 5.25 metres in length, the four-seater sports car offers a unique combination of innovative technology, outstanding design and an entirely new energy storage system: the nanoFLOWCELL® technology. First navigable prototype is set to generate new and innovative ideas for ongoing research into battery development, specifically in the field of flow-cell technology.

The novel system developed by nanoFLOWCELL AG is the product of intense further development of the flow cell principle, pushing it to new levels of power density, far greater than those of conventional redox flow-cells. Great advantages in the storage and release of electrical charge result from its more than 5-times greater power density. The Chief Technical Officer of nanoFLOWCELL AG, Nunzio La Vecchia, is convinced, “that the changeover to electric automobiles can happen in the near future; much faster than experts have predicted thus far.”

Redox flow batteries were patented in 1976 for NASA and the American space programme as part of a drive to advance energy storage technology for space flight. The 1976 patents have long since expired and are used by many others today. The flow-cell battery is a beacon of hope because it is an especially simple and effective storage medium for electrical energy. Flow cell installations are already in use as storage systems for domestic solar and wind power plants. They help capture the energy when it is generated and save it for use when it is needed.

- Toyota FV2 (Fun Vehicle 2)

The Toyota FV2 made its European debut at the 2014 Geneva motor show, and is a concept designed to capture the spirit of Toyota’s fun-to-drive philosophy, while connecting advanced future vehicle technologies.
Physical connection: the FV2 doesn’t have a steering wheel; instead, it is operated by the driver shifting his or her body intuitively to move the vehicle forwards or back, left or right. It also uses intelligent transport system technology to connect with other vehicles nearby and highway infrastructure to capture safety information, for example giving advance warning of vehicles in blind spots or at junctions.
Emotional connection: Toyota believes the relationships between drivers and their vehicles will continue to develop aspects of trust and understanding, similar to those a rider will have with a horse. It has taken technology from the Toyota Heart Project to allow the driver and FV2 to develop a relationship. The vehicle uses voice and image recognition to determine the driver’s mood; it can use accumulated driving history to suggest destinations; and can present driving skills information to assist the driver. An augmented reality (AR) display can be presented on the windscreen and the body colour and exterior display can be changed at will.

- Ermini Seiottosei 686 Prototype 2014 and Ermini 357 Sport 1955.

“Sport” cars were born on Italian roads, roads of legendary races such as the Mille Miglia (the thousand-­‐mile sports car race) and the Targa Florio.
The best car manufacturers at the time (Maserati, Ferrari, Alfa Romeo, Mercedes) used to race with small handcrafted makes such as Osca, Ermini, Stanguellini, Cisitalia, which were often able to be victorious.
These small car constructors, which were unable to compete with the most renowned teams due to economic/organizational reasons, had to make use of two essential characteristics: agility and lightness.
Pasquino Ermini used to say: “I have always thought of my cars as being as light as a feather, able to fly away, arm in arm with the wind.”

At the Geneva Motor Show, Ermini made a comeback, with a brand new prototype called Seiottosei (686). At the exhibit, there was also a historic ERMINI 357 Sport 1955 with a 1431 cc four cylinder engine producing 120 hp. The Ermini 357 Sport weight 560 kg with a tubular spacefame and an aluminium body made by Scaglietti..

- Magna Steyr Mila Blue

The Magna Steyr MILA Blue is an innovative, natural-gas powered, A-segment lightweight vehicle that produces less than 49g CO2/km.
The Magna Steyr MILA Blue, the seventh concept vehicle in the MILA family, represents a new, intelligent, lightweight design approach. As a result of sophisticated interaction between an optimized vehicle architecture and the latest lightweight design concepts, as well as novel
materials and joining technologies, MILA Blue achieves a weight savings of 300kg compared to typical current A-segment vehicles.
According to Günther Apfalter, President of Magna International Europe, “As the automotive industry continues to look for ways to become more environmentally friendly, Magna continues to leverage its engineering expertise to bring our customers solutions that
meet their challenges. MILA Blue underscores our technological competence in lightweight construction and alternative drives, which help answer the demands of global CO2 reduction.”

The Magna Steyr MILA Blue uses an alternative drive system, a compressed natural gas hybrid drive that achieves a carbon footprint of less than 49g CO2/km. Refueling with biogas instead of fossil-derived natural gas can bring about an additional improvement in the carbon footprint
to < 36g CO2/km. The combustion engine is coupled with an automatic manual transmission and a belt-driven starter generator. Due to the vehicle’s comparatively light weight, crawling along in stop-and-go traffic and cruising up to 30km/h can be done electrically using power
from the vehicle’s 12V-based electric motor and start-stop system.

- Alfa Romeo RL Targa Florio 1923

Spotlights are trained on the Alfa Romeo RL Targa Florio (1923) that on the one hand calls to mind Alfa Romeo's first victory at the legendary Targa Florio in Sicily, and on the other marks the birth of the Quadrifoglio Verde as the symbol inextricably linked to the sporting success of Alfa Romeo. As a good luck charm, a four-leaf clover ("quadrifoglio") was painted to counter the racing number 13 assigned to Ugo Sivocci on the bonnet of the car he drove to victory. The Museum's car has the original engine used in the competition in 1923: a 6 cylinder in line with 3154 cc and 95 HP, propelling the car to a top speed of 160 km/h.

- Honda RA271 1964 Formula One

The RA271 was the first Honda to race in F1. It made its debut at the German Grand Prix at the Nurburgring in 1964.
Symbolising Honda's challenging spirit, the RA271 featured an all new chassis, with a light alloy panel design. A key priority was to ensure optimum stability and weight distribution once the engine was mounted, and so, drawing upon its expertise in motorcycle production, Honda took the innovative choice of installing the V12 engine transversely in the chassis.
Honda had originally planned to paint its first made-for-racing F1 car in gold, to match the RA270F prototype. However, gold had been assigned to South Africa by FIA, so Honda elected to finish the car in ivory white with a red rising sun on the cowling in honour of the Japanese flag.
