When it comes to car shows and introducing the world to new vehicles, the yearly calendar is pretty packed. Detroit is all about American iron; Los Angeles shows off ultra luxury; Tokyo focuses on technology and powertrain; Frankfurt is all business. But every spring, the automotive world looks to the Geneva Motor Show for the newest, most badass luxury and performance cars — and unlike so many other shows, Geneva offers both auto manufacturers and major tuning companies alike the chance to show off their latest work. Here’s a behind-the-scenes look at the most outrageous and notable vehicles from the year’s most polished auto show.
Stealing more than its fair share of the limelight in Geneva was French automaker Bugatti’s first model in a decade, the 1,500hp Chiron.
