Pottering around the Geneva motor show is like wandering around a crystal ball. Pirouetting under the bright lights and stale air of the Palexpo are the next generation of cars that we’ll get behind the wheel of very soon. Cars like the Ford Fiesta ST, Honda Civic Type R, McLaren 720S and Ferrari 812 Superfast.
And a few cars from last year’s show have conspicously sneaked in under new guises, too. Guises consisting mostly of carbon fibre, garish paint schemes, more carbon and monster wheels. Yep, it’s the world of the tuners.
No car is safe. This year, the Bentley Bentayga, Rolls Royce Dawn and Maserati Levante were all chopped, sprayed and slammed and put centre stage. In Geneva, big tuners aren’t banished to the shadows of a second trade hall, their strip-lit stands rub shoulders with all the major OEMs to create a visual mish-mash like no other show this side of SEMA.
For your benefit, Top Gear has selflessly picked out the good, the bad and the, um, questionable, from the 87th Geneva show for your (dis)pleasure. So click forth and let us know your thoughts in the comments below.
