This year at the Frankfurt International Motor Show, automakers showed the heights and depths of their ingenuity. Relatively speaking, of course.
Ferrari showed an ‘entry level’ supercar, the US$234,000 Portofino, while Mercedes-Benz showed the ultimate Formula One-inspired car it could conceive, the US$2.7mn AMG Project One. Lamborghini discussed the eventuality of hybridisation within its fleet; Jaguar showed off an all-electric E-Type meant to show how the automaker is moving toward electric totality within its ranks. And while BMW said there is “no dramatic drop” in the popularity of diesel technology in its cars, it simultaneously unveiled its biggest SUV ever and gave the tiny i3 electric car a makeover to boost its appeal.
Call it schizophrenic, but there was plenty to see - including a bevy of electric concepts. Here are the most exciting cars from the show floor in Frankfurt this year.
