Geneva 2012: Full report and 280-shot gallery ...

During the past two days, Geneva was the automotive capital of the world. The Swiss city on the foot of the Alps once again hosted the annual Motor Show, which traditionally attracts all the major and specialist manufacturers. As a result each of them try their best to impress the gathered journalists, show visitors but also the competition. Fortunately the 2012 edition was no exception as even though we did note some changes, it was business as usual in the 'PalExpo' exhibition centre. The ongoing trend of green machines continued but at the same time the likes of Ferrari, Lamborghini and Bugatti pulled out all the stops.
For the ninth year running, our photographers travelled to Geneva to capture all the highlights and oddities that filled the PalExpo's relatively few halls. Among them was of course the new Ferrari F12berlinetta but we were equally impressed by the Infiniti Emerg-E Concept. All our findings can be found in a concise report, which is illustrated by a spectacular 280-shot gallery.
As you are probably used to, the various cars launched at Geneva will receive a much closer look in the coming days.

The Chevy Code 130R looks like it's to the current Camaro as the Opel GT was to its day's 'Vette. What is the 130R supposed to be?

it is a hint towards the BMW 1-series, which is a direct competitor.
