We, at BMWBLOG, are huge BMW fans – like that wasn’t obvious enough –  but at the same time, we love cars in general. At every auto show we attend, we spend most of our time around the BMW Group stand, but we make a point of visiting other automakers as well, to learn about their new products, innovations or concepts of the future.

We also spend a fair amount of time looking at some of the most exclusive auto brands, for example, Ferrari, Aston Martin and Lamborghini. Being one of the largest auto shows in the whole world, Frankfurt gathers around an impressive amount of carmakers that come to glamor us with their cars.

Ferrari has brought out their latest models, Ferrari 458 Italia. Powered by a new 4.5L V8 which revs to 9,000 rpm, and produces 562hp and 398 lb-ft of torque. Ferrari advertises the 458 Italia as one of the “greenest Ferrari” to date, with an impressive 13.7L/100km (17.1 mpg US) combined city/highway rating.

Ferrari, Aston Martin and Lamborghini at Frankfurt Auto ShowAston Martin unveils an elegant and classy Rapide grand tourer powered bys a hand-built 6.0-liter V12 engine capable of delivering 470 horsepower, propelling the car from 0-62mph in 5.1 seconds and a top speed of 188mph.

Lamborghini stand turned heads, not only due to their beautiful photomodels, but also because of the Lamborghini Reventón Roadster, which can go from 0 to 60 mph in 3.4 seconds and costs $1.6 million and is a 20-car limited production.

If you’re going to miss the Frankfurt Auto Show this year, don’t worry, we got you covered and you can see some of these exciting exotic cars in our photo gallery below.

    Really cool stuff.

    What’s the deal with the 3 exhausts on the Italia? The middle one is smaller…. it could be a valved, higher-flowing exhaust (like BMW does) but why only have one? You’d lose some of the tuning benefits.

    Ferrari is taking a strange turn with this styling. Lambo seems to be trying with the Reventon styling to return to Countach and its mean, boxy lines. Aston could have evolved a bit, but it’s still beautiful.

      heritage, the F40 supercar had those (3 pipes) first.

    From straight ahead the Italia looks like an extremely pissed-off whaleshark!
