    My pictures from Geneva 2010

    I won't do a extensive write-up since Turbolite and Kreso amongst others have covered the show in great detail, so I'll show you some of the pictures I took instead. Please forgive the sometimes crappy iPhone qualiity.

    Two things though, as Turbolite said green was the big thing at the show, with Ferrari showing a green hybrid car. But BMW was probably the "worst" offender, with only one M car on display, a M3 literally hidden in the back. And no X5/6M or Z4 35isSmiley

    The star of the show for me was the 918 Spyder, which I got to take a good look at after a nice lunch at Porsche courtesy of Eric and Marc (thank you guysSmiley). The 918 looked fantastic, much better than the CGT, and I hope they build itSmiley

    Anyway, on to the pics..

    The sunset on approach to Geneva:

    The Ferrari 458:

    Svetis 2010 014.JPG

    The Lamborghini LP570-4 Superleggera (yes the show was pretty packed on Sunday, but don't worry I went back on Tuesday as well, so more of the Lambo later):

    Svetis 2010 015.JPG

    The (disappointing) RS5:

    Svetis 2010 018.JPG

    The very nice R8 Spyder, not my color choice though:

    Svetis 2010 016.JPG

    The fantastic Paganis:

    Svetis 2010 020.JPG

    As mentioned, it was pretty packed on Sunday:

    The Aston Rapide, nice looking car, but weird color:

    Svetis 2010 025.JPG

    Svetis 2010 029.JPG

    The facelifed 3-coupe with M-styling:

    Svetis 2010 039.JPG

    Eric (Gnil) trying on the SLS for size. Nice looking car, but as you can see, not much headroom for us tall guys:

    Svetis 2010 067.JPG

    Svetis 2010 041.JPG

    Now THAT'S what I call a racing seat, the whole car moves hydraulically:

    Svetis 2010 051.JPG

    911 Turbo in dazzling (to the iPhone at least) black:

    Svetis 2010 054.JPG

    The GT3 RS engine:

    Svetis 2010 055.JPG

    The new paddle steering wheel, here in the Turbo S:

    Svetis 2010 064.JPG
     

    The Panamera in the best color and with best wheels IMO, the more I see this car, the more I like it:

    Svetis 2010 065.JPG

    And the star of the show, the fantastic 918 Spyder:

    Svetis 2010 061.JPG

    Svetis 2010 056.JPG

    Svetis 2010 058.JPG

    Svetis 2010 057.JPG

    Svetis 2010 062.JPG

    As promised, some Lambo pics:

    Svetis 2010 068.JPG

    Svetis 2010 070.JPG

    Svetis 2010 071.JPG

    Svetis 2010 072.JPG

    Svetis 2010 074.JPG

    Svetis 2010 076.JPG

    Svetis 2010 079.JPG

     

    And for good measure, and to show that Switzerland is more than car shows, a few more from my trip.

    The dramatic valley in Lauterbrunnen, you don't see this in Iowa or Kansas:

    The famous north wall of Eiger (3970 m ASL) from Kleine Scheidegg:

    Svetis 2010 094.JPG

    And finally, the view towards Wetterhorn (3692 m ASL) from Kleine Scheidegg:

    Re: My pictures from Geneva 2010

    Great pics Temm, thanks.

    I've been trying to figure this out from all the pictures that I've seen but  So, does anyone know where the images from the rear view cameras on the doors are displayed  There doesn't seem to be much room in the cockpit.

    I'm not 100% sure, but I think they are projected on the center screen (its small , but its there).


    Re: My pictures from Geneva 2010

    Thanks for the pictures Temm!
    Don't be too hard on your iPhone. These pictures are still pretty impressive for such a low end camera right? My phone is not able to take pics like that!
     

    And the pic of Lauterbrunnen brings back memories. I was there once or twice, with the same weather... :-)

    In may I'll be in the neighborhood of Geneva btw, going hiking with some friends from Gstaad to Montreux! Really looking fwd to it.

    997 TT, what a car/che'mmmmmaghena!!!

    Re: My pictures from Geneva 2010

    Great pictures from the show and impressive pictures from Switzerland - THANKS!

    2 findings:

         1.  that R8 Spyder color is just hideous
         2. that Aston RAPIDE Badge on the trunk is also just hideous!


    Re: My pictures from Geneva 2010

    Thanks Temm. It was great meeting again.... always nice to spend some time with another car nut

    Did you end up having a nice fondue  after the snow and the freezing temperatures ?

    Thanks you, nice pictures! The above car is in Basalt black or Atlas Grey? Smiley


    Re: My pictures from Geneva 2010

    Thanks for the pictures!

    The Mercedes looks worst than I thought from publicity pictures.

    What wrong choice of colours by Audi! Both the R8 and the RS5 are begging for more suitable colours.

    The Rapide? What a caricature of a car!

    The Ferrari and the Lambos pale next to the 918, even in pictures.
