10 Biggest Reveals Heading to the Frankfurt Auto Show


Copyright © 2015 Bold Ride LLC.

Next week Tuesday marks the opening day of the 2015 Frankfurt Auto Show to the press. Granted, it’s not as big as Geneva or as relevant as LA, but typically Frankfurt manages to impress in a unique way.
This year, plenty of automakers are dishing out the goods before their Frankfurt Auto Show debuts. Everyone from Alfa Romeo to Volkswagen have something to show. Here’s the 10 you definitely need to know about.

Bentley Bentayga


We’ve already covered the new Bentley Bentayga thanks to an early release. It’s got a big W12, 600 horsepower, and a 0-60 time rivaling many modern day supercars (4.0 seconds).
But the most important thing about it isn’t it’s performance, or even price, it’s that fact that it’s Bentley’s first ever SUV. A huge deal for the British marque.

Borgward SUV

Borgward SUV 2

Like Bentley, up-and-comer Borgward has plans for a new SUV of its own. The details are still very slim, but the formerly defunct brand hopes to revive itself in Frankfurt.

Bugatti Vision Gran Turismo


No, this isn’t the new Bugatti Chiron everyone is waiting for (or is it?). What it is, actually, is a virtual look at what a hardcore Bugatti racer could look like in the game Gran Turismo.

If you’re in Frankfurt, you’ll be lucky enough to see this virtual supercar come to life on stage.

Honda Project 2&4


Honda is heading to Frankfurt guns hot. The Project 2&4 concept is essentially a Japanese answer to the Ariel Atom. It’s lighter, probably quicker, and carries a unique style all its own. It also proves Honda is still able to make fun cars.

Hyundai N 2025 Gran Turismo


Bugatti isn’t the only brand having some virtual fun in Frankfurt. Hyundai will be unveiling it’s N 2025 Gran Turismo concept in the metal. But that’s not even the best part.
The N sub brand in charge of building this creation will also be announced as the official tuning arm of future Hyundai vehicles. Can anyone say Hyundai Genesis Turbo N?

Jaguar F-Pace


Oh look, another SUV. Like the Bentayga, this one hails from the UK and is the first in the Jaguar lineup. From the concept we saw a few years back, to the teasers we’ve been seeing lately, this one should definitely be a looker.

Mansory Mercedes-AMG S63 Coupe Black Edition


There’s not much to say when the name Mansary pops up. This Mercedes-AMG S63 Coupe will be fast and insane. Simple as that.

Nissan Crossover


The Nissan Juke has grown old, and Nissan is ready for something different. The new SUV we’ll see in Frankfurt should carry on the current Nissan design style and translate that onto a small SUV.

Renault Alaskan


Who said the French can’t build pickups? The Renault Alaskan Concept is a study in what could become of the mid-size truck segment. It’s a handsome looking thing.

Rolls-Royce Dawn


A new Dawn is upon us. Literally, the new Rolls-Royce Dawn. It’s the first new car in a few years from the British marque, and features a convertible top with room for four normal sized human beings.
