Beautiful, exotic super cars always seem to steal the stage at the Geneva Motor Show. A cadre of irresistible sports cars keep that tradition alive at the 2017 edition, which was show's 87th milestone. While many automakers teased us with pictures in advance of the press previews, there's nothing like an exclusive personal glance at these works of technological art. A who's who of luxury automakers unveiled new models and variants including Mercedes-Benz, Ferrari, McLaren, Aston Martin, and Lamborghini. But the best part about Geneva are the surprises from automakers that are more obscure to American audiences like Renault and Pagani.
Most people will never buy or own these cars that have price tags steep into the six figure range. By design the super cars of Geneva push the boundaries of speed and excess. Geneva is a reminder that an irresistible sports car is always something to behold.
