Geneva Motor Show: video highlights

David Hobbs

The most important motor show of the year opened its doors this week - and surpassed expectations.

Manufacturers, who have been seemingly depressed because of the economic crisis that paralysed the world, turned up in droves and brought some spectacular machinery along for the ride as well.

Our first video highlights features the impressive A1 from Audi, the Lamborghini Gallardo, the Alfa Romeo Giulietta as well as three highlights of the Porsche stand - the new Cayenne, the GTR3-hybrid and the 918 Spyder Concept that had the press drooling.

Not far behind on the second video is the new Aston Martin Cygnet, the Mercedes F800 Style, Bentley's Continental Super Sports convertible and the impressive Citroen DS3 Racing, developed by the French manufacturer's motorsports division and limited to 1,000 units.
