Welcome to Geneva… Away from the hardcore 599s, hardcore Murcielagos and, er, hardcore MiTos, there was plenty of other good stuff in Geneva. Here’s the best of what we found.

Best of Geneva
McMerc SLR Stirling Moss: The speedster version of McLaren’s SLR made a welcome appearance on the Merc stand. Check out this month’s issue of Top Gear for an even closer audience with the windscreenless hypercar.
Chrysler’s floor: Do not adjust your sets. This was the Chrysler’s show stand - OK, there were a couple of cars scattered in between, but it gives a good hint where they’re at financially, eh?
Volvo S60: Volvo’s big saloon concept looked, er, good. In a sort of sensible, Swedish way. Definitely very safe, too. No one well over it or got trapped in it the whole time we were at the Volvo stand.
Skoda Fabia Scout: When a man with an effeminate duster is more exciting than your new jacked-up city car, you know you’re in trouble. We tried to get excited about the Fabia Scout, we really did. We failed.
Honda Asimo: Honda’s scarily human little robot turned up to, er, hand out a few coffees to chief execs. And drew a bigger crowd than Arnie Schwarzenegger on the VW stand next door. Fight, fight, fight…
Bugatti Veyron: Pre-show rumours of a new 1300bhp Veyron proved unfounded, but we did get this rather fetching two-tone special edition to keep us happy. We’re easily pleased like that.
