    Infographic colorizes the Geneva Motor Show

    Nobody packs it in like the Geneva Motor Show. Every spring, the exposition boasts more debuts than we could count on all the fingers on all our hands combined. It's a mind-boggling venture to cover it all, but with this year's show now behind us, it's time to look back on all there was. And for ...

    Geneva: Honda fits Jazz Si debut onto Geneva stand

    The Honda Fit (Jazz in most other markets) has been a decent success here in the States. It's economical, somewhat fun to drive and not painful to look at. But it just seems to lack something. Oh, right, sportiness and a bright red Si badge! To earn the Si designation, the versatile econocar was ...

    Official: Rolls-Royce debuts two-tone bespoke Ghost

    For the first time in the life of the Rolls-Royce Ghost, the company is offering a two-tone color scheme as a "bespoke" factory option.

    Report: That Didn't Take Long: Bentley SUV redesign already in the works

    Guess we called this one from the outset. Looking like a Mulsanne that just ate a Continental Flying Spur for breakfast and a GT for lunch, the Bentley EXP 9 F concept was the biggest disappointment – and we mean that literally – of the Geneva Motor Show. Apparently, Bentley must have ...

    Geneva: Valmet Dawn gets its Tron on in Geneva

    There are a lot of ways to describe the Valmet Dawn you see pictured above, but our favorite could be mouthed by Keanu Reeves: Whoa. And then we would expand it to WTF? As in, "Whoa the F?" That's because Valmet Automotive – the makers of the Fisker Karma, among other vehicles – has ...

    Geneva: 2012 Citroën DS3 Racing Sebastien Loeb Edition is the darkest of horses

    Among the numerous renditions of its DS line unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show, Citroën went a step further with the introduction of the DS3 Racing S. Loeb. Taking advantage of the ridiculous success it has had with the DS4 WRC piloted by Sebastien Loeb, the DS3 Racing S. Loeb is for those ...

    Geneva: Magna MILA Coupic Concept is a shape-shifting convertible crossover pickup

    Please excuse us while we banish thoughts of David Letterman's hosting of Oscar night – Magna; MILA... Uma; Oprah – and instead focus on what this concept car brings to the table. This is the sixth MILA Concept from Magna-Steyr, the Austrian arm of Canadian auto parts giant Magna ...

    Geneva: Citroën DS4 Racing Concept is our kind of Gaul

    Wide, chunky, low-down and matte gray. There aren't many things for which we'd consider that a flattering descriptive, but the Citroën DS4 Racing concept is just such a thing. Developed by Citroën Racing and a step up from the DS3 Racing limited edition, it's 35 millimeters lower, ...

    Geneva: Gemballa GT is yet another one-off McLaren MP4-12C

    If Mansory's take on the McLaren MP4-12C was a fiery sunrise, then this is the other side of dawn: the Gemballa GT. Gemballa is campaigning a McLaren in this year's GT3 series, and the company's motorsport experience has been "distilled into a state-of-the art super sports car." That means new ...

    Geneva: Rolls-Royce stays classy with the 2012 Phantom Series II

    The task of trying to update the Rolls-Royce Phantom is like trying to update Mt. Everest – you can swap out a few boulders, add some clouds and a new glacier, but such moves are dwarfed by the simple grandiosity of the highest mountain on the planet. That's why you'll need to pay close ...

    Geneva: 2012 Aston Martin Virage by Q is distinctive, exclusive and unquestionably superfluous

    In the stratospheric zone of the automotive atmosphere, being unique is every bit as important as going blindingly fast or bathing oneself in luxury. To address the need, Aston Martin has introduced Q, a service that goes far beyond standard paint palettes, leather finishes and wood trims. In the ...

    Geneva: 2012 Hyundai i20 boasts sleek style, top-notch efficiency

    Hyundai has unveiled what it calls the most environmentally friendly, conventional-engined vehicle sold on the planet – the all-new i20. We called the first i20 "one sharply dressed econo car," and this new model gets a family-familiar hexagonal grille and swept-back, cat-eye headlights ...

    Geneva: Lola LMP2 racer sure looks like a Lotus

    Lotus, we're sorry to say, promised a lot but delivered very little this year in Geneva. But that doesn't mean its show stand was without its eye candy. Feast your eyes on this new LMP2 racer.

    Geneva: McLaren MP4-12C Terso shows FAB Design's good side

    The good news for folks who both love and hate the FAB Design McLaren MP4-12C Terso is that there will only be five made. But to our eyes, the Swiss tuners known for some felonious assaults on innocent cars (the McLaren SLR Desire, anyone?) have been admirably restrained with this one, although ...

    Geneva: 2012 Citroën C4 Aircross is ready for soft-roading action

    This handsome little crossover is the 2012 Citroën C4 Aircross, and it's ready to boldly go where every other CUV has gone before. Like the vast majority of C-segment-based, high-riding crossovers, the C4 Aircross is, to quote associate editor Zach Bowman, more "mall-terrain" than ...

    Geneva: AC Schnitzer rocks a matte blue hue with the ACS5 Sport

    The new 2012 BMW M5 produces an impressive 560 horsepower and 502 pound-feet of torque, but for companies like AC Schnitzer, the 4.4-liter twin-turbo V8 presents only a starting point. The German tuning company unveiled the new ACS5 Sport here at the Geneva Motor Show this week, managing to ...

    Geneva: Lumma Design offers a new take on the Porsche 911 with the CLR 9 S

    Many of the tuners here at the Geneva Motor Show have little to no restraint when it comes to styling, which is why we appreciate subtlety when we see it. Lumma Design, hailing from Winterlingen, Germany, offers an example of such restraint with its CLR 9 S based on the new 991 Porsche 911. The ...
