- The story of the world's first concept car: Flickr photo of the day Sat, Mar 8, 2014
Today, auto shows are filled with fancy concept cars; at this week's Geneva motor show, we found enough to pack an entire slideshow -- and still had plenty leftover that didn't make the cut. It's a way for designers to express themselves and engineers to showcase future technology. But perhaps more importantly, it's a way for automakers to test the water; gauge public and media interest and, if sufficient, put together a viable plan for the company's bean-counters to consider for actual production.
- For the world's fastest supercars, 600 hp is the new normal Sat, Mar 8, 2014
If you look at all of the supercars just unveiled at Geneva’s Palexpo hall — the Ferrari California T, The Koenigsegg One:1, the McLaren 650S, and the Lamborghini Huracán — you will notice one thing they have in common: they’re not for you. They’re for rich people with wheelbarrows full of extra money to spend on speed and sporty/flashy good looks. The “cheapest” of them, the Ferrari, costs more than current median home price in the USA, which stands at around $195,000, and they accelerate well beyond $200,000 for the Lambo and McLaren, and onward into the millions, like, two or three, for the special Koenigsegg.
