Geneva 2011: the best of the rest

Geneva. Seat of the original League of Nations, home to the United Nations and base for dozens of organisations working for a greener tomorrow.
And right now, it is also home to a load of scantily clad ladyfolk luring bedazzled and sweaty auto-enthusiasts into the charms of Cars.
Yes, it's motor show time, and it's a big ’un. Lamborghini, as always, stole the show with the new Aventador, but Alfa threatened a David-and-Goliath-shaped upset with its diminutive 4C concept - arguably one of the standouts.
You've seen the big-hitters, but we've decided to crawl among the cracks to bring you everything in between. Click forth, Internet hound, and seek new metal...

Bentley Continental SS Convertible Ice Speed Record
Juha Kankkunnen drove this here Bentley to a new ‘ice speed record' which, as you guessed, is the fastest a human can keep his nerve on the frozen stuff. He topped 202mph. Some say, parts of Juha's anatomy are coated in unobtanium...

Lotus Evora Enduro GT
A Lotus Evora, after crashing through a motorsport shop. Will form the basis of upcoming Nurburgring 24 Hour racer.

BMW Vision ConnectedDrive
This Beemer - previewing a small two-seat roadster to rival the TT - houses terrifying technology including satnav directions in 3D vision on the actual road. And the ability to read your mind, probably.

BMW 1-Series M Coupe
It's nearly coming... it's nearly coming...
Read the full story on the 1M Coupe

Weismann Spyder
The ice-cold Weismann Spyder pinches the V8 from the M3 and sticks it in a body weighing roughly 1,000kg, meaning a top speed hovering around 175mph and a close relationship with your heart surgeon.

Bertone B99
This is how Bertone reckons a Jag should look, fusing elements of the old XJ into a two-door body. Good effort, we say.

Citroen Metropolis
This hybrid beasty was styled in Citroen's Shanghai studio and is huuuuge - at 5.3m, it's longer than a LWB Audi A8.

Abarth 695 Tributo
180bhp from a spanked 1.4-litre engine and a shouty exhaust looks promising, with body gubbins inspired by Ferrari. Costs nearly 30k, since you're asking.

Aston Martin Virage
BRAND NEW ASTON! Something to slot in between the DB9 and DBS, apparently. Tomorrow: How To Sniper A Wolf's Nose While Running In Pack Formation.

Ferrari FF
New Ferrari makes its show debut. Red...

Ferrari FF
...or white?

FAB Design Panamera
Pretty sure there are ancient scriptures warning us about this.

Pagani Huayra
It's unpronounceable. It's exquisite. And it's in Geneva, which means it's time for another picture. Dream, puny earthling, dream...

Porsche 911 GT3 R Hybrid
The future of Porsche performance is a no-joke, balls-out hybrid racer. Like.
TG drives the GT3 R Hybrid

Fiat 500 Zagato
The cutesy 500 gets turned into a coupe. Interesting...

A three-wheeled Morgan in Spitfire livery. Magic.

Sbarro Evoluzione
180bhp Audi 1.8-litre engine housed in what looks like an angry Transformer. Autobots! Roll out!
