The Swiss Auto Show

The Geneva International Motor Show concluded their 88th show this month and it was AMAZING. The reveals were unbelievable and the showcases never ceased to impress the attendees. Geneva always brings together some of the most outstanding performance and luxury vehicles. They feature supercars, custom projects, and halo models, creating such ambition for all automotive lovers that come together every March to catch a glimpse of these groundbreaking vehicles.

The first International Geneva Motor Show was in 1905 and it hosted almost all major internal combustion engine models, as well as benzene- and steam-powered cars. The showcase featured exotic supercars, setting themselves apart from the other car shows around the world. This was huge for the city of Geneva because Switzerland lacks an auto industry of their own. As the show grew in popularity, it attracted more and more automakers and gave them the motivation to break the mold when it came to automobiles.

The Future of Cars

In the beginning, the auto show included prototypes, new equipment, technical breakthroughs, international partnerships, and political and social debates. It has now grown to include these areas of the show:

  • Motorcars 3 or 4 or more wheels
  • Electric cars and alternatively powered cars
  • Special bodywork for motor cars, car design, engineering
  • Converted cars
  • Accessories and parts for motor cars
  • OEM: original equipment manufacturers
  • Workshop installations for the repair and maintenance of motor cars
  • Miscellaneous products and services related to the car industry
  • Animations and Attractions

Here are some of the coolest cars that were featured at the 2018 show:
