After looking through the high-performance sports cars, concept cars, and trucks and SUVs from this year's Geneva Motor Show, we realized we still had a large stack of photos leftover. Instead of letting them go to waste, we share them here for all you lovers of all things auto. Our final photo tour of the 2016 show includes everything from new roadster debuts, to restored classics, to ultra-premium limousines, to a concept race car from the 1960s.

That's a sexy wagon

Kia Optima Sportswagon

As an American touring the European car scene, the number and style of estates/station wagons is always a highlight. This year proves a very good one for sexy estates thanks to debuts from Volvo and Kia. We already looked at the Volvo V90, which we'd say is the best-looking wagon at the show. The all-new Kia Optima Sportswagon isn't far behind, and though it's not quite as immediately stylish and sporty as last year's Sportspace concept, which influenced its styling, its dropping roofline and sharp, swooping front-end design give it an attractive presence. The Sportswagon will go on sale in the fourth quarter, and buyers will be able to select from several gas and diesel engine options, including the range-topping 242-hp 2.0-liter turbo four of the Sportswagon GT.

Tops optional

Stylish roadsters are also out in full force, and not all of them are full-blown supercars or concepts. The Abarth 124 Spider is one of the more memorable roadsters of the show, and the funky Morgan EV3 is definitely another. Morgan is also celebrating 80 years of 4/4 production, calling the car the longest running production car in the world. The 4/4 80th Special Edition marks the occasion, offering 80 buyers a special 4/4 with sports exhaust, brass mesh grille and brass accents, mohair roof and part tonneau cover, solid wheels with brass center locks, special edition graphics, and more. The special edition starts at £33,330 (approx. US$47,000) before taxes.

A classic touch

The focus of an international auto show like Geneva is brand-new premieres and modern-day stablemates, but if you pay attention, you'll find a few classic cars in the mix. Our favorite this year is the 1952 Alfa Romeo C52 "Disco Volante" that Touring Superleggera displays next to its all-new Disco Volante Spyder. Styled like the wing of an airplane, the 1952 Disco's extra-curvy, three-dimensional body definitely gives it the feel of a disco volante (flying saucer) on four wheels. Believed to be an influence for the Jaguar E-Type, that smooth bodywork also gives the car a 0.25 drag coefficient, helping the 246-hp 3.5-liter six-cylinder do its job.

See the rest of what we saw in Geneva inside our final gallery of photos from the show floor.
