Toyota's New Futuristic i-TRIL Electric Car Has One-of-a-Kind Design

Description

This quirky little vehicle is Toyota's i-TRIL concept car, an electric-powered vehicle designed to be more environmentally friendly and easy to handle. Toyota, which is neck and neck with Volkswagen for the position of the world's largest automaker, showed off the i-TRIL at the Geneva Motor Show on Wednesday. The cool thing about this car is that it can tilt its body to keep a tighter grip on the road and provide a super tight turning radius of just 13 feet. The unusual four seater was created in collaboration with Toyota's French design studio ED2 with 30-50 year old active mothers living in small towns in mind. Oh, and did we mention that the driver's seat looks like Captain Kirk's captain chair? However, the concept is just an idea about what cars will look like in 2030.

  • Ferrari Fires Up its 812 Superfast at the Geneva Motor Show

    World renown sports car manufacturer Ferrari is at it again. The Italian company released its latest beautiful road demon, called the 812 Superfast, at International Geneva Motor Show on Wednesday. Powered by a 6.5 liter V12 engine capable of generating a whopping 789 horsepower, the 812 Superfast is Ferrari’s fastest ever supercar, able to bolt from 0 to 60 in just 2.9 seconds and can exceed speeds of 210 miles per hour. Ferrari's latest model is priced at $308,000 dollars, but, even if you've got the cash, you won't be able to get one - the 812 Superfast is already sold out for 2017. Ferrari CEO Sergio Marchionne pointed out that the company's strategy lies in first being sure of demand and then making sure to produce less cars than the demand to stay exclusive. The 87th edition of the Geneva International Motor Show has open its doors for second day for industry specialists and journalists on Monday and will be available to the public from March 9-19. The organisers of the 2017 Geneva Motor show are expecting more than 700,000 visitors this year.
