Frankfurt 2015 motor show
The world's largest auto show returns to Germany this year
12 August 2015
Show dates: 15 September 2015 - 27 September 2015
Another year, another exciting showing from the world’s largest automotive
event. Frankfurt 2015 showcased a swathe of cutting-edge new and future models
that captured the imaginations of car fans across the world.
Mercedes-Benz turned heads with their Intelligent Aerodynamic Automobile (IAA)
concept car, a sleek and aerodynamic machine with an extendible rear bumper
that helps reduce wind drag when deployed at high speeds.
Multiple brands announced their first foray into the SUV market, with luxury
British brand Bentley showing off its hi-po W12-powered Bentayga, while Jaguar
debuted its long awaited F-Pace. Defunct German brand Borgward was also
resurrected, bringing with them their BX7 SUV.
But perhaps the most impressive car to debut at Frankfurt was the Mission E
concept from local marque Porsche. The all-electric Mission E generates 440kW,
can accelerate from 0-100km/h in 3.5 seconds, and has a range of 500 km.
Furthermore, executives at Porsche say the Mission E is not simply a fanciful
concept, but will eventually be made into a production car, possibly as an
electric version of its four-door Panamera.
