Geneva Motor Show 2014: the tuners
This year’s modded cars in a chrome-wrapped, diamanté-encrusted carbon fibre extravaganza

If you’re serious about business and your hobby is torque, you need the the G65-based 800bhp Brabus iBusiness.
Power-hungry German tuner Brabus has taken the G65’s 6.0-litre V12 Biturbo engine, and turned it up to at least 14 with the aid of bigger turbochargers and four water-to-air intercoolers. The end result is 800bhp and 1047lb ft of torque… in a car with the aerodynamic properties of a four-bedroom semi.
Even so, it’s a bloody fast four-bedroom semi. The super-G gets from 0-62mph in 4.2 seconds, presumably while watching Top Gear on iPlayer via the 15.6-inch monitor and high-speed internet connection. All while a bottle of Bolly chills in the onboard refrigerator. Very nice.
Best of all, there’s a massive inverter that glows in a kaleidoscope of disco colours but also looks like a bomb from a low-budget movie, concealed in a Perspex box in the boot floor
