It's been a week since the doors for the Geneva Motor Show opened, and they still are until this Sunday. The big theme this year is eco-friendliness, but with a twist. The twist is fun! With cars like the Volvo Polestar 1 and Honda EV concept cars, it seems like manufacturers have finally realized that people want cars that are eco friendly, but also fun. There's plenty of other interesting non-EV and non-hybrid cars as well, but 10 have stood out more than others. Hope you approve of the list.
The 2018 Geneva Motor Show is upon us, and there's plenty of new metal to get excited about. Eco-friendliness, as usual, seems to be the popular theme -- with a seemingly endless list of new electric and hybrid cars. However, a lot of manufacturers have managed to make them exciting. It seems that the days of boring, uninspiring eco-friendly cars are going away. Outside of the world of electric cars and hybrids, there's plenty of exciting new performance cars, as well as a great number of interesting new everyday cars. The doors open to the public tomorrow, check out these pics to get a preview.
The much anticipated track-focussed version of the Ferrari 488 GTB is here, and it’s called the 488 Pista.
Details of the latest version of what is probably one of the most hardcore, track-ready street cars are here, the new Porsche 911 GT3 RS.
This is a great time to be in to cars, as this year's Geneva motor show is showing some of the most exciting new metal in a long time. You have everything from the insanely powerful Koenigsegg Regera, to long-time favourites like the Land Rover Defender. With that said, this gallery provides but a glimpse of what's available at Geneva's Palexpo centre. Doors open to the public tomorrow and close on 15th March, so make sure you go check it out.
Whether you enjoy going to motor shows or not, there's no denying that this year's Geneva Motor Show isn't short of some interesting new metal. With that said, this gallery is but a summary of some of the cool new cars at the show, and should give you an idea of what to expect when the doors open to the public tomorrow. Enjoy.
The Swiss Car Event is an annual event taking place at Geneva's Palexpo arena for tuned and custom cars. Cars range from old Volkswagens to classic American muscle cars, rat rods, exotics and all kinds of souped-up vehicles. There's also some live stunt driving sessions and dancing from some tuning models. It was definitely a great place to spend an afternoon, so please check out SOC's photo gallery of the event.
The Geneva Motor Show closed its doors yesterday, and like many who end up going to car shows, SOC has prepared a wish list if ever one was to win the lottery. Do you have a wish list of your own? Go ahead and share it in the comments section.

The Geneva Motor Show opens its doors to the public tomorrow, and will close on Sunday 17th March. The first thing you need to know is that the show is not short of exciting new cars for enthusiasts and buyers alike. Whether you want to buy the new Volkswagen Golf (2013 Car of the Year) or fantasize about driving the alien-like McLaren P1, Geneva 2013 is definitely worth a look. Here are but a few photos of what to expect, and make sure to check our YouTube channel for a few select clips. Enjoy.
Opel Ampera/Chevy Volt
Apart from winning the 2012 Car of the Year award, it’s a plug-in hybrid car that looks good too. The specs? It has a 150hp electric motor along with 370Nm of torque, with a claimed range of up to 80km (50miles) on a fully charged battery pack. Its 1.4-litre engine is there only to power a generator when the battery range is low (the engine doesn’t send power to the wheels at any time) – which then extends the range to 500km. It is expensive though – prices start at CHF 52,900 (around $57,000) in Switzerland.
Ferrari F12 Berlinetta
The F12 Berlinetta drew a huge crowd on press day. It was easily one of the most anticipated cars of the show – and with 740hp, it’s easy to see why. Its 6.3-litre V12 engine is the most powerful of any Ferrari road car, which definitely makes it a standout car. However powerful the engine might be, the design might divide opinion – looking a bit similar to the FF at the front. However, all is certainly forgotten as you approach its 212mph top speed.
