1:38 /

CNET's grab bag of fascinating cars from the 2007 Geneva auto show.

[ Music ] ^M00:00:02 >> Some quick drive buys from the 2007 Geneva auto show. Bartone [assumed spelling] said happy 95th birthday to us with this roadster concept based on the guts from a lowly 100 horse power Fiat Panda. Back in the post war days Bartone and fiat worked closely and kept each other alive. This is the monotraserous[assume spelling] from Paravas [assumed spelling], no seriously sort of a motorcycle thing with a full faring and training wheels so it can lean way over at city speeds. It's powered by a BMW K1200 bike engine for much higher speeds. Price 80 grand. If you like the VW Eos, but wish it had Asian reliability and price bingo, take a look at the Kia Ex Ceed Cabrio concept just don't take a look for it in the US anytime soon. Many fired up there redesigned cooper with a redesigned John Cooper option. The John cooper works stage one kit it improves the intake the exhaust and the engine computer programming. A much more aggressive stage two kit will be one the way shortly. And Jaguar's recently redone XJ has just never done well. It just prints old fart. So, they've hotted up the look with a more aggressive front end, a small spoiler on the trunk lid and flank mounted side vents. How much do you want to bet the picnic trays are still in the back? ^M00:01:25 [ Music ]
