There was much more to make the best of 2013 Geneva Motor Show list and today we’re continuing our quick look at the various models that have a spot on it.

Porsche 911 GT3

The Porsche 911 GT3 marks half a century of Porsche development, the fifth-generation model brings with it a massive change as far as it is concerned – it is no manual.

This is possibly the most focused of the new Porsche 911 models, a naturally aspired 350kW 3.8-litre direct injection six-cylinder engine, with four-wheel steering and a dual-clutch automatic as the only transmission offered.

The 911 GT3 will go from 0 to 100km/h in 3.5 seconds – thanks to a launch control system – and its top speed is that of 315km/h.

Rolls-Royce Wraith

The two-door Rolls-Royce Wraith has a 465kW/800Nm twin-turbocharged 6.6-litre V12 powerplant and has been dubbed to be the ‘ultimate gentlemen’s gran turismo’. The Wraith will gracefully go from zero to 100km/h in 4.6 seconds in the luxury of the cabin’s ‘waftability’ which features Phantom-grade leathers.

The Wraith also premiered the new satellite-aided transmission system that will link the car’s eigh-speed ZF automatic gearbox to GPS mapping data in order to make sure that the correct gear is always pre-selected for the coming road surface.

Suzuki SX4

The new Suzuki SX4 is slightly bigger than the current one, offering a 430-litre boot with increased interior space, and will be available either in front- or all-wheel-drive setups as well as two options for its 1.6-litre four-cylinder engines – petrol and diesel.

Toyota 86 Convertible concept

This concept is close to production-ready, it features an electrically operated soft-top that folds away into the car’s boot. There aren’t a lot of details available since it is a concept still, however it is expected to feature a 147kW/205Nm 2.0-litre four-cylinder Boxer engine, the same as the current 86 and the Subaru BRZ.
