Car Porn in Geneva

By Jamey Price In Recent Work

Let me paint a picture in your head, then I’ll stop rambling and let you enjoy the photos.

Imagine for a moment, the biggest room you have ever seen in your life. Then multiply it by four. You now have the Palexpo, the location for the 83rd annual Geneva Motor Show in Geneva, Switzerland. Now take those four enormous rooms and fill them from wall to wall with car makers of all shapes and sizes showing all of their most popular, futuristic, expensive, exotic, never before seen, and fan favorite automobiles. Now fill that room again with journalists and photographers from every country on Earth. Now add some gorgeous women sitting on, and mingling around the cars……and you kind of get the idea what the Geneva motor show is like. To put it simply, it is an overwhelming experience. 

I had never been to a proper car show before. Upon walking into the room, my head was spinning. It was so much to take in, I didn’t know where to begin. I say this without fear of judgement, but I might have found myself lost once or twice…..or three times.

My friends at Road and Track had tasked me to cover the coolest cars on the floor from various angles. Basically to find something “different”. Some of the cars were awesome hypercars from the leading manufactures of ridiculous automobiles. Some of them just newsworthy and new from the most well known car makers that we all know and love. It was a mix of everything You could imagine. The ridiculous, to the boring, the futuristic and everything in between.

To be honest, I really don’t care what a car has going on under the hood. I get tingles when I hear an awesome V10 or V12, or a great sounding engine in general, but how it actually works isn’t something I’m that interested in. I AM interested in their looks though. And Geneva was filled to the brim with sexy cars that I have long heard of, but never seen with my own eyes. Many of them, none of us will ever see again. Prototypes, concept cars, cars of such rarity that you have a better chance of searching for big foot….and finding one…..before you see this car in the flesh again.

So without any more writing, here is some car pornography for you to feast your eyes on. The devil is in the details….

Road and Track, Nunez, Kierstein, Sam, Chris, Audi….I can’t thank you all enough for this opportunity. Seriously.
