Geneva International Motor Show 2011
The Geneva Motor Show runs from March 3rd through 13th. It’s been a staple in Europe for over 100 years. We realize that most Americans reading this post won’t be able to attend, but it’s still a very interesting look at some of the most imaginative, daring and creative concept cars that you will find, so it’s worth a look. Personally, we would rather take a look at some of the earliest exhibits from the show’s early days back around the original 1905 show. Imagine how all those spectators back then would marvel at the current crop of cars on display.
Some of the more notable exhibits would be the first Infinity hybrid car, the Jaguar sedan concept called the B99, the Rolls Royce Phantom Experimental Electric Car, Ferrari FF, Porche Cayenne Turbo and the BMW Vision Concept Car. Plus, they were even giving away a new Peugeot 308 car.
They are also pushing their “Green Vision” as well with more than 36 electric cars which can even be driven. Expect this trend to accelerate in years to come. They’ll even have some Automotive Equipment there as well, to display certain aspects of servicing these automobiles.
If you do get a chance to visit the show, send us a picture or two and tell us a little about it. We’d love to hear from you.
