Journalists and car-loving members of the general public alike make an annual pilgrimage to Switzerland for one very good reason: It's a haven for supercars.

Join us as we take a closer look at 10 of the very fastest production cars that debuted at the 2015 Geneva Motor Show, and get ready for some serious speed.

Audi R8

It's hard to follow up on a classic, but that's exactly what Audi has done with its next R8 supercar. In V10 Plus guise, the car puts out a monstrous 610 horsepower. That's good for a sprint to 60 of just 3.2 seconds and a top speed of 205 mph.

And with its chiseled good looks, this latest R8 is going to look awfully good while it's scorching the pavement, no matter who's lucky enough to be behind the wheel.

Ferrari 488 GTB

The Ferrari 458 was beautiful; this new 488 GTB is simply stunning.

It boasts a 3.9-liter turbocharged V8 engine with 661 horsepower and 560 pound-feet of torque, and while Ferrari isn't yet offering official acceleration or top-speed figures, you can rest assured that they will be very quick and stupidly fast. In case you're wondering GTB stands for Gran Turismo Berlinetta, which in English, translates to Grand Touring Coupe.

Lotus Evora 400

While it's not quite as powerful as the rest of the cars on this list, the Lotus Evora 400 still manages to impress, with 400 hp and 302 lb-ft of torque spun from a supercharged 3.5-liter V6 engine.

That's enough gumption to record a 0-60 time of 4.1 seconds and reach a top speed of 186 miles per hour, which is rather fast in anyone's book. That said, the Evora (and every Lotus in general) is really meant for a racing circuit, and the British automaker reports that the Evora 400 is a massive six seconds quicker per lap on its own home testing circuit.

McLaren 675LT

The McLaren 675 LT that debuted at the 2015 Geneva Motor Show isn't the fastest vehicle that the British automaker produces, but it's certainly no slouch.

It pumps out a devilish 666 horsepower from a 3.8-liter V8 and can sprint to 62 miles per hour in 2.9 seconds, thanks to its curb weight of just 2,712 pounds.

Porsche Cayman GT4

With a 385-horsepower 3.8-liter flat-six, there's no way the Porsche Cayman GT4 can compete in a flat-out sprint with the latest machinery from Ferrari and Lamborghini, but that's not really its intended purpose.

Sure, it's quick, with a 4.2-second 0-60 time, but this is a car tuned for the race track. According to Porsche, the Cayman GT4 recorded a blistering time at the famed Nurburgring race track in Germany of just 7 minutes and 40 seconds.
