Here are the rest of the cars covered
Dear Sir, Thank you for the details snaps uploaded. There are three cars which absolutely would be the highlights of the show.

1) The gorgeous Aston Martin DB11.
2) The "Orgasmically" designed Pagani Huayra BC. Pardon the inappropriate usage.
3) The obscenely powerful Koenigsegg (Did i get it right? Still not sure after all these years!) Regera.

Would appreciate if the photos/updates of these could be uploaded next before the other cars.

Your wish is my command. Except i did not snap the Koenigegg

Aston - small stand, very crowded so it took a lot of effort to get an unobscured view of the car. Pic quality was not too good as I need to act fast before someone walked past!

Thank you very much sir. It would have been an awesome feeling standing next to it. Here in Chennai i have only seen a Rapide in close proximity till date and that in itself is a thing of beauty.

Wow this was something not at all covered by any media or website. Thanks very much.

Plenty of AMG's but everyone wanted to get into them. I waited but there was so much else to cover.

The stand was all about the E class, in all shapes and sizes

Geneva Motor Show 2016-dsc06009.jpg

Smart looking wheels

So how do you tell between the C and an E? Note reflectors in rear bumper and tail light pattern
Geneva Motor Show 2016-dsc06036.jpg

Otherwise, the E class is all about interiors. It was difficult getting quality time. It was perhaps the most fondled car in the show!

Only 20 coupes and 20 spiders to be made and all sold out

We had a quick meeting with Herr Winklemann, some points

1: Aventador was most special for him
2: Sad to leave midway during Urus development
3: Centenario is a one off - all sold out. Engineers had freedom to do what they wanted.
4: Determined that these cars are driven and not sit in museums
5: Hybrid - need to look into it but preserving DNA comes first
6: Urus production will be 6000 per annum max - it will double existing volume
7: A third model has been a big challenge for Lamborghini
8: Indian market is barely 20 cars/ annum but India is No2 for Lamborghini in terms of social media

They also showcased the LC -FC - which showcases fuel cell technologies. I guess it also points to what the next LS range will look like

Default Volvo

This was the first european showing of the S90 and the launch of the V90.

First, an old timer the P1800 ES - I loved staring at these in London as a youngster.

This is the S90 plug in - frankly the rear looks like an early 90's Corolla

The V90 has a gorgeous elegance to it. I really loved its simple lines. Back to the times when estate cars were a desirable lifestyle statement

Default Renault

The Renaults we get are really chromed Dacia's except for the Fluence. The new Megane made an appearance but the main launch was the Scenic MPV

The Renault Scenic - it looked quite impressive, I just hope it is not as troublesome as its predecessors were

I liked the bigger Renaults but they always had electronic niggles

The Talisman

The Espace - nice brutal looking SUV/MPV

Tata Motors has showcased RaceMo sportscar at Geneva Motor Show 2017. Is Team-Bhp covering this show? Would like to see updates on this year's Geneva Motor Show on Team-Bhp itself.
