Concept cars of the 2017 Geneva Motor Show

Even with design houses like Pininfarina, Touring Superleggera and Italdesign focused all or in part on limited edition production cars, this year's Geneva Motor Show was still an explosion of concept cars of all styles and stripes. Concepts ranged from a modular, self-driving car/multicopter, to a stripped-down off-road buggy and an ultra-luxury electric roadster. Join us as we take a photo tour of all the concepts of the 2017 Geneva Motor Show.

Before heading to the gallery, here are a couple of standout from the show:

While the Pop.Up concept's passenger capsule is shown with air and ground modules specifically, Italdesign says it could work with other forms of transportation, such as trains or hyperloops

We'll be covering the Italdesign Pop.Up in a forthcoming article, but we'd be remiss not to mention the most out-there concept of the entire Geneva show. Designed in collaboration with Airbus, the Pop.Up is Italdesign's vision of a modular, multimodal commuter pod that can be self-driven on the ground, lifted into the air by a self-driving multicopter, or dropped into a mass transportation system, getting occupants from Point A to Point B as efficiently as possible. This concept feels like a true look deep into the future of transportation, a future we'd love to see materialize.

Bentley earns our unofficial "best concept of show" with its EXP 12 Speed 6e electric roadster concept. White is never the most exciting color for a concept car, but Bentley's plain white exterior is the perfect complement to the real star of the show: the deeply colored leather and copper of the neatly split cockpit. That interior and the curves of the exterior combine to create a concept that's effortlessly sporty and luxurious, a true pleasure to look at.

Jump to our photo gallery for all the brilliant, beautiful, weird and wild concepts of the 2017 Geneva show. And don't forget to check out our round up of the most exotic sports cars at the show, too.

Love the Arcad buggy, Airbus pod, Rinspeed (for some reason, painted differently, please), and the gorgeous Mercedes-AMG GT Concept (but lose the breakable turn sigs in the front fender and the ugly wheel inserts, please)
