Bugatti La Voiture Noire, Pininfarina Battista Lead Must-See Cars at Geneva Motor Show 2019

From the most expensive car in the world at Bugatti to the fastest at Pininfarina and Koenigsegg, there were a lot of must-see cars at the Geneva Motor Show.


The Geneva Motor Show 2019 is the place to see the very best exotic cars automotive engineers can come up with. This year, the Bugatti La Voiture Noire and Pininfarina Battista led the way.

The were joined by the Koenigsegg Jesko, the Aston Martin 003 and the RUF CTR Anniversary.

Of course, there are a lot more cars to talk about and this is just the beginning of our Geneva Motor Show roundup. But these six cars here should be the starting point for anyone looking to see the most exclusive and most impressive cars Geneva has to offer.


Bugatti La Voiture Noire

Some said it cost $20 million, others said $16 million. In fact, the Bugatti La Voiture Noire is priced at $12,45 million before taxes. You shouldn’t be concerned too much about the price, however, because La Voiture Noire won’t be massed produced.

Only one unit will be built and it is already spoken for. We feel sorry for all of you aspiring Bugatti La Voiture Noire billionaire owners, you will just have to turn to one of the other cars on this list.

No 1,500-horsepower Bugatti for you. Check out our full coverage of the La Voiture Noire and how it pays tribute to one of automotive history’s most fabled cars.


Pininfarina Battista

Pininfarina is knowns for designing cars. Now, they are building cars and not just any kind of the car. The Battista is their first creation. Talk about making a statement.

The Battista has four electric motors that together give the hypercar 1,900 horsepower. That’s good enough to get to 100 km/h in less than 2.0 seconds which is faster than a Formula 1 car by quite a margin.

The Pininfarina Battista gets 450 kilometers of range as well. A limited production run means you can’t buy a Battista anymore, but it’s still worth checking out our full gallery.


Koenigsegg Jesko

The new Koenigsegg Jesko is now the world’s fastest production car in terms of top speed. It’s in fact the first car to have a top speed of over 300 mph. Think about that for a second.

The Jesko is the name of Koenigsegg founder Christian von Koenigsegg’s father and it was an emotional project for the brand from the very beginning. The Jesko gets a new chassis, a new tub, a new design and a massive 1,280 horsepower engine.

Aston Martin 003

The 003 is the third hypercar from Aston Martin and can be described as an evolution of the Valkyrie with a hybrid engine.

It’s also a more usable Aston Martin Valkyrie. It’s not as low and it doesn’t have the huge wing and Batmobile-like looks, and its engine is a hybrid turbocharged V6 taken from an F1 car. It’s still going to be plenty fast we have no doubt about that.

Check out our coverage and image gallery of the Aston Martin 003.


RUF CTR Anniversary

If you’re a Porsche fan, you have to love RUF and you can’t help but melt at the site of the RUF CTR. In Geneva, you can witness the CTR Anniversary, a tribute to the original Yellow Bird that put RUF on the map.

The RUF CTR Anniversary gets the same yellow paint job, a twin-turbo 3.6-liter flat six pushing 700 horsepower to the rear wheels, and a healthy 2,640 pounds. That means the TUF CTR gets to 100 km/h in 3.5 seconds.

Talk about given Singer a run for its money. There are plenty of other cars to check out at the RUF stand in Geneva as well.
