Geneva Show 2013: Good, bad and very, very ugly
Here's a selection of cars that caught my eye, whether that was making me drool, or puzzling over what the hell they were thinking.
Corvette Sting Ray Convertible
I'm licking my lips - it definitely captures the essence of the 1963 icon.
It's interesting to see the European take on the same theme as the Corvette. The F-type looks svelte in this colour.
Toyota FT-86 Open
Concept created to gauge reaction to possible development of a cabriolet version of the GT86 sports coupe.
Distinctive 'Vette profile. Pity the snapper couldn't wait until that lanky bloke in the green scarf slung his hook.
I do like the back, it's actually quite chunky, but manages to look sharp.
Concept has 2+2 seating and a roomy boot. Would you really take the kids?
Swell-egant - and a snip at £200,000.
ItalDesign Giugiaro Parcour
A hint of Lancia Stratos and maybe a miniature Countach?
I like this Robocop-style, chunky concept. I've suggest a name change for the production car before trying to sell it in Ireland.
Very modern, herringbone rather than walnut pattern. The twinkly stars on the roof are a talking point.
John Cooper Works Paceman
About as far from a Mini as you can get while still being a Mini, but I'm sure it's a hoot to drive.
The Corvette Sting Ray may be getting all the attention, but I do like the muscly Camaro.
SLS AMG Electric Drive
Eurgh - it looks like a 1970s' Sbarro show car. As if someone who wanted that would care about saving the planet.
Mitsubishi Concept GR-HEV
Excuse me - your truck's melting! And that name sounds as if someone's throwing up. The diesel hybrid tech is clever, though.
VW XL1 concept
They forgot to style the rear.
No you idiot, we wanted a car - not a giant pair of trainers.
