Alfa Romeo's Frankfurt motor show display featured the stunning 4C Concept, first unveiled at the Geneva show earlier this year. The two-seater, mid-engined sports car is unchanged apart from a new paint scheme.
Alpina’s Frankfurt motor show star is this BMW Alpina B6 Bi-Turbo convertible, which has a top speed of 193mph and boasts 100bhp more than a regular BMW 6-series cabrio.
German manufacturer Artega displayed a 126mph electric version of its mid-engined sports car, the Artega SE. The Artega SE – which stands for ‘sports electric’ – is powered by two electric motors, which will produce 280kw (375bhp).
The road car variant of the new Aston Martin V12 Zagato - which goes into production from the middle of next year - was revealed in Frankfurt. The hand-built Zagato is based on the V12 Vantage and features a body of aluminium and carbonfibre. The race-bred machine is powered by the Warwickshire-based firm's six-litre engine, which produces 510bhp and 420lb ft of torque.
Audi confirmed plans for a lightweight, all-electric successor to the A2 — six years after the pioneering first-generation model ceased production and also showed off its Urban and NILS Concepts and hardcore S models. Audi's latest DTM contender made its appearance at Frankfurt, too, as did three other new cars, including the R8 e-tron and A1 2.0TDI model.
Anyone familiar with the second-generation Continental GT, launched a year ago, will recognise the latest GTC’s sharper styling lines, unveiled at Frankfurt.
