Here are the 7 cars we’re most excited about from the Frankfurt Motor Show
This year’s Frankfurt Motor Show has been home to some seriously good-looking reveals. Estates, electrics and super-fast saloon cars – it’s had all of them. We’ve picked out some of our favourites that we can’t wait to see on the road.
1. Audi RS4
Okay, so here at SU Towers we’re a little wagon-bias, but this latest Audi RS4 looks better than ever. More powerful than the car it replaces (blame the turbocharged V6 from the RS5 for that), it’s got those chunky proportions that have been a trait of every RS4 through the years.
2. Suzuki Swift Sport
So the Swift Sport might not be one of the most powerful cars of the show or one of the most expensive, but it’s certainly got a huge amount of expectation weighing upon its metal shoulders. The older Swift Sport handled impeccably well and we’re sure the new one will be just as good. Well, here’s hoping!
3. Porsche 911 GT3 Touring Package
This has got to be one of the stars of the show. You have to hand it to Porsche – it’s created an ultimate sleeper with the GT3 Touring Package. Just as quick as a standard GT3 but with a body style that’s pretty close to a regular Carrera, it’s an understated masterpiece.
4. Audi R8 RWS
Another Audi, you say? Why yes, we reply – this one’s special. The first rear-wheel-drive Audi, the R8 RWS sends all 533bhp from its naturally aspirated V10 to the rear wheels. Audi says that its on-board traction control systems allow it to perform ‘controlled drifts’. We like.
5. Mercedes-AMG Project One
How could we not feature this? Coming as the first production car to use an F1 engine, the Project One is claimed to be able to hit 124mph in under six seconds. Yikes!
6. Renault Megane R.S.
The arrival of any new Renaultsport car is a happy thing. We’re pleased to see the return of the Megane R.S, now packing 276bhp from a turbocharged 1.8-litre engine. Thankfully, Renault has learnt from its mistakes with the Clio and is offering the Megane R.S. with a manual gearbox, not just an auto.
7. Honda Urban EV
Just look at this concept! Featuring retro styling and the low-slung, muscular stance of a classic hot hatch, it’s an idea of what future Hondas could look like.
