Sports cars point towards the future of mobility, especially in the automotive world. It might be a supercar or a hypercar but at the end of the day it has been built to go fast – so fast that it should wow the best of the drivers with its performance. While function is at the fore of their design, the artists in those engineers make sure these sports cars look their part as well. So we bring to you, a bunch of supercars from Geneva, one of the most prestigious auto shows across the globe.

Koenigsegg Agera RS Gryphon

Christian Von Koenigsegg is a man driven by the passion of building fast cars, just like Ettore Bugatti in the old days. Combining technology and innovation with clever engineering, Koenigseggs are never about absolute power. This ultra-special Agera RS takes its inspiration from the mythical creature Gryphon and is done with gold-leaf highlights and stripes on the carbon-fibre bodywork. With 1350bhp power and weighing less than 1400kg, this car comes very close to the magical 1:1 ratio.

Bugatti Chiron

When it comes to supercars hardly anything goes past a Bugatti, especially, when it is the Chiron – the worthy successor of the legendary Veyron. It will go on to hold the record of the fastest production car on road but that might not be as ground breaking an achievement as the Veyron. Still, one look at it and you will forget all about the records and simply drool.

Aston Martin Valkyrie

The Aston Martin Valkyrie in its entirety, embodies all the glory and fieriness of the Norse goddesses, which it is named after. This is a racecar which doesn’t even care to masquerade as a road car. The carbon fibre bodywork is just enough to make it road legal but the Cosworth V12 engine underneath with Red Bull F1 engineering and KERS system is a 1000bhp-1000kg hooligan you would not want to mess with.

Pagani Huayra Roadster

How can you not have the legendary Italian fighter pilot on the list when you speak about hypercars. Horacio Pagani’s latest creation is the Huayra Roadster. And if you thought convertibles were always heavier than coupes, you have been taught wrong. This Roadster is over 50kg lighter than the coupe and with almost 800bhp of power under the hood, this gorgeous car screams at you even when it is standing still.

Lamborghini Performante

Speaking about Italians, the Raging Bull is not the one to be left behind. The Lamborghini Performante is the fastest around the Nurburgring with a 6:52:01 minute lap clocked around the world’s toughest proving grounds. We also do remember that Koenigsegg was not allowed to attempt the fastest lap there for safety concerns. Does this mean battle lines are being drawn?
