Lamborghini Veneno, Corvette Stingray convertible, Mansory Bentley revealed at Geneva - video news
The already-spoken-for Lamborghini Veneno showcased at the Geneva motor show, pictures of the new Corvette Stingray convertible released; tuners make room at Geneva. We'll start today with a question: What if you want a Lamborghini but the Aventador just isn't exclusive enough? Well, you would have to step up to the Veneno, a supercar the company revealed today at the Geneva auto show. The Veneno is based on the Aventador, but is styled even more aggressively with more emphasis on aerodynamics and downforce. It uses the Aventador's V12 to make 740 hp with a seven-speed transmission. They cost $4 million each, but all three have already sold out. A fourth model will take the stand in Geneva, but will go to Lambo's museum.

The new photos show that the drop-top won't get air inlets above the rear wheels like the coupe. That leads us to wonder if the convertible will not come standard with rear-mounted coolers for the transaxle and electronic limited-slip differential in the Z51 package. The full suite of details will be revealed tomorrow at 2 a.m. Eastern.

German tuner Mansory will show off the Sanguis, a supercar based on the Bentley Continental GT. The Sanguis uses an upgraded version of Bentley's 6.0-liter W12 making 672 hp and 575 lb-ft of torque. That's up from 567 and 516 on the base coupe. No word on pricing, but the base W12 costs about $197,000. We'd expect the Mansory will be well above that.

Kia Provo concept, Italdesign Giugiario Parcour, Mansory Speranza at Geneva - Autoweek Video News
Kia reveals the Provo concept. Giugiaro brings us an Italdesign Lambo. And Mansory shows a real doozy. Kia's asking if a weekend in a Provo will fix what's wrong with us, by bringing a butch little hatch to Geneva. It looks a little like a more upright Hyundai Veloster, and while Kia isn't planning on building it, I couldn't resist the opportunity to make a Mountain Goats reference -- so here you go.

But, since Volkswagen knows that its best cars are too good for the U.S., most of them will never make landfall here. But the very best VW product at the show won't be available for purchase anywhere. It's the Italdesign Giugiario Parcour, and it's basically a jacked up Lamborghini Gallardo, which, of course, is awesome. The Parcour is, of course, named after the hit French TV show "Parcour Lewis Can't Lose," in which Jerry Lewis' fictional son Parcour jumps off of trashcans and climbs up walls like a little spider monkey. But I digress. Finally, no European auto show would be complete without a rolling testament to taste and sophistication from our friends at Mansory. For Geneva, we get a look at the Speranza, a heavily bastardized Geländewagen. Some people say it looks like a Geo Tracker with a homemade body kit, but Mansory did breathe on the engine a bit, bringing the horsepower up to 700, and the torque's up to 668, so it's actually probably pretty fun to drive as long as you don't mind looking like a Georgian arms dealer.
