Sports cars of Geneva

What sports car lover hasn't imagined attending an auto show where all the cars are super-stylish, high-performance sports coupes uninterrupted by the rough, awkward lines of eco-friendly hatchbacks and everyday sedans? With plenty of regular cars on show, the 2016 Geneva Motor Show isn't quite that show, but it's the closest thing we can recall witnessing. The show's long debut list includes established marques like "Bugatti," "Koenigsegg," "Pagani" and "Lamborghini" and newer players like "Arash," "Rimac" and "Techrules." It all adds up to one of the most stunning displays of carbon fiber styling and earth-rumbling horsepower you'll ever see.

We've already covered major debuts, including the Bugatti Chiron, Lamborghini Centenario and Rimac Concept One, and we'll continue that coverage in the days ahead. Right now, we feel we'd have trouble keeping your attention, what with the bursting-at-the-seams gallery of hot supercars sitting a mere click away, so we'll save our text for the captions. Without further ado ... the performance cars of Geneva 2016.
