The Geneva Motor Show plays host to some of the world’s biggest car debuts. Unfortunately, not all of these debuts are fit for our shores. The following vehicles from the Geneva show are the ones for which we are most jealous. These six cars will make the Top Gear boys wish they still had their French driver’s licenses back.

Sure, Koenigsegg and Maserati may be soaking up the spotlight in Geneva — but there’s one big, beautiful car that people might be overlooking. It’s the called the NanoFlowcell Quant e-Sportlimousine, and (in addition to being a mouthful) it is a hybrid-electric, 900 horsepower hypercar.
Do you remember the toy cars you had growing up? There was the awesome Big Wheel, and then there was the “Little Tikes” car. Do you ever wish you could relive some of those moments, wheeling around the back yard? Well a company in the UK has built that opportunity for you.
Jaguar is a brand that sticks to the past, even when evolving. The names of its vehicles are well known, and when they introduce a new car, it is named in the context of past vehicles. So when Jaguar teases a new vehicle called “XE,” we tend to pay attention.
Bicycles are great in that they can take you many places with just the movement of your feet. Though speed bikers can go faster, mountain bikers can get more places, and overcome more terrain obstacles. But the MTB folks have nothing on the Cyclomer, a bike that can roam on the water as well as the road.
We’re more than ready for this year’s Geneva Motor Show. And that’s good news, because it seems like every automaker has pulled something out from under a sheet and prepared to show it off.
From the speed demons to the city dwellers, and from the supercars to the not-so-super-cars, here’s what you can expect at the 2014 Geneva Motor Show:
Until 2010, you would be a bit of a sci-fi aficionado to be very familiar with the TRON light cycle. It was that year that Disney rolled out the sequel, TRON: Legacy, with an epic soundtrack from Daft Punk, and some very cool visuals. Among those was an updated version of the light cycle, and damn did it look cool.
Believe it or not, seven years ago today Honda debuted one of the most talked about F1 cars in recent history — the “Earth Car.” Technically speaking, it didn’t do much to improve Honda’s racing performance before the team’s pullout in 2008. But symbolically, the Earth Car made a statement of a cleaner sport that other team’s had yet to make.
It has been quite a long time since the Chevrolet Corvette has had anything but a small block V8 underneath its hood. While the very first Corvette was available with a straight-six, this yellow C3 Corvette features an all-electric powertrain. Safe to say this was never an available engine code.
Created by Keith Stegath, we learned of this incredible project via Corvette Forums. Stegath has been hard at work on electrifying a third-generation ‘Vette for nearly two years, and features a 300-volt battery pack, weighing in about 1,200 pounds.
If you saw the latest episode of Top Gear, you’d know that Jeremy Clarkson got behind the wheel of the new McLaren P1 and labeled it as one of the best cars he’s ever driven. And we don’t doubt it. So we knew it was only a matter of time before everyone’s favorite YouTube reviewer, Chris Harris, would get behind the wheel of 903 horsepower hybrid hypercar.
