The 82nd Geneva Motor Show 2012 saw scores of cool and awesome cars from some of Europe’s biggest car makers such as BMW, Mercedes, Aston Martin, Bentley and of course Lamborghini. Besides expensive and beautiful cars there were tons of hot girls screaming to be photographed in this neutral territory of Switzerland. From tens of thousands of dollars a piece, these awesome machines go up to 7-figure bracket.

In the C-segment premium models, you’ve Volkswagen Golf, Audi A3, Mercedes A-Class and Volvo V40. That Mercedes A-Class looks tempting but the sexy Swedish Volvo V40 should have no problem boosting sales. And I bet Honda has started copying the new stylish V40’s tail lights to its coming CRV’s facelift. The glaring difference can be seen in the emerging Korean brands, Kia and Hyundai, with their introduction of second-generation (beautiful design) cee’d and i30 models in the C-segment, thanks to absence from Japanese makers.

The surprise in the SUV category was of course the introduction of Land Rover’s Range Rover Evoque convertible concept, a bold move by the company in its attempt to capture the first premium convertible SUV, if it goes into production. The major attraction was obviously the supercars with over 300-horsepower starting with Porsche Boxter S onwards. Actually in this supercars segment, Porsche Boxter S and BMW M6 Couple were quite boring. Even the luxurious and expensive Bentley EXP 9F Luxury SUV and Rolls Royce Phantom Series II were overshadowed by four supercars.

Aston Martin V12 Zagato, Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse, Ferrari F12 Berlinetta and Lamborghini Aventador J were perhaps the coolest of them all. With limited production of only 150-units, the 510-horsepower Zagato with top speed of 305 km/h was hatched from automaker Aston Martin and Italian design house Zagato. Each Zagato requires 2,000 man-hours to be made mainly because body panels such as the hood, doors and “double-bubble” roof are hand-formed from aluminum while front and rear fenders are crafted from carbon fiber.

In case you’ve been living under a rock for the past month, the Ferrari F12 Berlinetta is the fastest and most powerful road car ever launched by the team in Maranello. With 740-horsepower from the 6.3-litre V12, this car has acceleration of 0-100 km/h in a claimed 3.1 seconds (and 0-200 km/h in 8.5 seconds), a top speed of 340 km/h (211 mph) and 30 per cent better fuel economy than its 599 predecessor. That’s 1 second faster than the mind-blowing Ferrari 599 GTO and 2 seconds faster than Enzo.

Wanna dry your hair faster than the most powerful hair-dryer? The answer is definitely Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse, the supercar that gets the same engine as Veyron Super Sport’s 8.0-liter, quad-turbo W-16 engine good for 1,184 horsepower (*gulp*). That’s a freaking 1,200-horsepower, and with top speed of 408 km/h (254 mph) and acceleration of 0-100 km/h  in 2.6 seconds, this beast basically vanished into thin air before PM Najib Razak can finish saying “1-Malaysia” (*grin*).

On the top spot is obviously Lamborghini Aventador J, a version that comes with the same 700-horsepower, 6.5-liter V-12 used in the Aventador coupe. This 700-horsepower machine may have 40-horsepower less than Ferrari F12 Berlinetta but it can hit 0-100 km/h in 2.9 seconds compared to F12’s 3.1 seconds. Lamborghini said the only ONE unit to be made is already sold but who’s complaining considering that this car comes without roof or windscreen. So basically the buyer of this $2.8 million machine will have to wear motorcycle helmet if he intends to hit the 300 km/h (186 mph) speed limit without getting his head blown off.
