Geneva Motor Show 2018

I recently visited the 88th Geneva International Motor Show. A show famous for featuring many new concept cars each year. This year was no exception with concept cars everywhere. In my view their design ranges from the lovely to the ridiculous.

This year we also saw many historic concept cars like the Marzal, the Testudo, and the Sigma Grand Prix, and sometime the comparison is really ….. well, let’s say difficult. Perhaps it is my old age, but I don’t understand why so much styling is so “aggressive”. Mercedes-Benz seemed to agree with me and have reverted to more fluent lines, and have not “sculpted” their cars with an axe this year.

Of course some of the cars shown will be translated into models either of the show car or of the resulting production vehicle. Others will never be seen as models in any scale.
