    Geneva: Carlsson's CS50 Versailles is gold-plated S-Class excess
    1394044740

    There's always that guy at the party who takes the joke too far, and at this year's Geneva Motor Show that role falls on the shoulders of the German tuners at Carlsson with its CS50 Versailles. It has created a customized Mercedes-Benz S-Class covered in thousands of dollars of gold leaf. ...

    Geneva: Techart modified Porsche 911 Turbo S packs 620 hp, 0-62 in 2.8 seconds
    1394042580

    Considering how many absolutely ridiculous tuner cars are featured in Geneva (stay tuned to see plenty, as our coverage continues), it's often refreshing to see some of the more modestly modified cars, like this new Porsche 911 Turbo S from the folks at Techart. Visually, there's a subtle body...

    Geneva: The Bentley Flying Spur V8 shows even a basic Bentley is a nice place to be
    1394041260

    While it is hard to call any Bentley entry-level, the Flying Spur V8 that's debuting at the Geneva Motor Show is technically the lowest rung among Bentley's four-doors. However, if our experience with the Continental GT V8 is anything to go by – the Spur and the Conti still share a...

    Geneva: 2015 BMW X3 gets a new nose, diesel power
    1394038920

    The second-generation BMW X3 launched in late 2010, and while it's never really wowed us, it's still a solid offering in a highly competitive class. In an effort to keep things fresh, BMW has given its X3 a nip/tuck for the 2015 model year, but perhaps the biggest news (for the US market,...

    Geneva: Volkswagen says US pickup is back on the table
    1394036400

    Volkswagen doesn't normally consider General Motors to be a prime competitor in the US, but it's keeping a keen eye on the company's new midsize pickup models, eager to see how they perform in the market. That's because the German automaker is reevaluating its truck strategy, and it's closely...

    Geneva: 2014 Morgan Plus 4 is slightly less behind the times... but no less charming
    1394035140

    While its lightweight roadsters can give both driver and passenger the sensation of speed with the wind rushing through their hair, things at the Morgan Motor Company tend to move rather slowly. The company has been around for over a hundred years, and still produces most of its models the way...

    Geneva: Seat Leon Cupra is the new front-drive King of the Ring [w/video]
    1394034060

    We know you might be thinking that this is just another Volkswagen Golf clone. But what you're actually looking at is the new King of the Ring. That is, as far as hot hatches go. Because here in Geneva, VW's Spanish subsidiary Seat has confirmed what we reported a couple of days ago: that the...

    Geneva: Rolls-Royce Ghost Series II rolls in with some subtle updates [w/video]
    1394031540

    Downsizing is a relative term – especially when it comes to a Rolls-Royce. But that's just what the British luxury automaker did with the release of the Ghost in 2010. Sure, it's over seventeen and a half feet long (over eighteen in Extended Wheelbase form), but that's still shorter than...

    Geneva: Italdesign Giugiaro Clipper MPV Concept can take six people in all-electric luxury
    1394030400

    Italdesign Giugiaro has turned its design talents to Volkswagen's MQB platform, revealing this, the Clipper MPV, at the Geneva Motor Show. The three-row, six-passenger Clipper boasts an all-electric powertrain that is capable of covering 540 kilometers (335 miles) between charges. The grunt...

    Geneva: Mini Clubman Concept isn't mini, isn't a Clubman
    1394029200

    Hey, remember when Mini was... mini? I know, you've heard all this before. But seriously. Take this new Mini Clubman Concept, for example. As you'll recall, the current Clubman slots in between the Hardtop and Countryman models in the Mini lineup. But because the new, third-generation Mini...

    Geneva: Renault Clio RS Monaco GP carries on the tradition in Geneva
    1394028060

    In the United States, our hot hatchback options are growing, with cars like the Ford Focus ST, Fiesta ST and the new Mini Cooper S keeping American drivers entertained alongside more traditional models like the Volkswagen GTI. What drivers in North America don't get to experience, though, is the...

    Exclusive: Bentley considering diesel engine for new SUV
    1394026200

    Turns out, in case you didn't know, the rich are just like regular people. They too are concerned about the environment, even when tooling around town in their super-luxurious Bentleys. So the automaker is weighing the idea of offering a diesel engine in its SUV offering, which could help...

    Geneva: 2014 Jaguar XFR-S Sportbrake is one hot hauler
    1394024340

    Oh look, another super-hot wagon that won't be making its way to the US. Awesome. Actually, in all honesty, it really is awesome. Meet the Jaguar XFR-S Sportbrake, a red-hot (or blue-hot?) version of the rakish XF wagon that originally bowed at the Geneva Motor Show back in 2012. The formula...

    Geneva: 2014 Renault Twingo is a rear-engined cutie
    1394022720

    At this point, we thought the formula for small, inexpensive hatchbacks was pretty much dialed in: transverse engine, front-wheel drive. Then along comes Renault with its cheeky new Twingo, just to throw a curveball into the mix. Sporting a rear-mounted engine and rear-wheel drive, the Twingo is...

    1394020680

    You're looking at the third leg of Volvo's award-winning concept trilogy, the Concept Estate.

It's not just that we have a weakness for shooting brakes or Volvo's take on the...

    Geneva: BMW 2 Series Active Tourer pulls its way onto the stage
    1394019060

    We know what you might be thinking: here comes another BMW with yet another kind of roofline. Only this isn't just another BMW. It's the first front-drive BMW, and the first time we've ever seen it in person. That model, of course, is the new 2 Series Active Tourer, debuting here in Geneva as...

    Geneva: 2014 Volkswagen Scirocco still looks hot, still not coming to the US
    1394017140

    Ever since its debut in 2008, we've been lusting after the mean-faced, squat-stanced Volkswagen Scirocco. And while there are still no plans to bring the car to the US, folks in other markets are being treated to a slightly updated version of The People's (Other) GTI. The Scirocco formula...
