2013 Geneva show: From superfast to supereconomical

This year's Geneva auto show offered an amazing variety with potently fast supercars and extremely economical innovations.

GENEVA--Despite a slump in the European automotive market, this year's Geneva auto show was the most impressive in recent history, and also showcased some of the most exotic cars in the world. We saw new limited-edition models from Ferrari and Lamborghini. McLaren came out with a hybrid supercar, and Volkswagen showed a hybrid hypermiler. Chevrolet took the top off its Corvette Stingray, and Toyota did the same with its GT-86, the equivalent of the Scion FR-S in the U.S. Here are just a few of the cars we saw.

Head over to our Geneva auto show page to see it all.

Ferrari LaFerrari hybrid
Ferrari's latest, ultra-high-performance road car takes every tech advantage it can, using a hybrid electric drive system, a digital instrument cluster, a dual-clutch automated manual transmission, and active suspension.



Lamborghini Veneno
In a word, the Lamborghini Veneno is absolutely nuts. OK, so that's two words...



Volkswagen GTI and GTD
With the performance version of the new Golf, Volkswagen releases a gasoline-powered GTI and a diesel-powered GTD.



Toyota iRoad
The 2013 Geneva Motor Show is packed to the gills with super cars and exclusive hypercars, but the vehicle I want to drive the most is a little EV Concept in the Toyota booth.
