We love the Geneva Motor Show. Perhaps more than any other show each year, Geneva provides the most excitement, wrapped up into two incredibly busy days. Important mainstream cars mix it up with stupid-fast supercars, weird one-off tuner creations, and Euro-spec forbidden fruit you'll never get to see on American soil. We tend to geek out over this show, and that's obvious in the sheer amount of coverage we post over the course of just a few days.

Here's a look at everything that caught our eye in Switzerland this week.
