The 2012 International Geneva Motor Show (Salon International de l'Auto) has always been considered to be one of the best auto shows of the year. Since it is the one which opens the year, it is known between car makers and car tuners that this show is the one who sets the trends so, itís a show no serious car or aftermarket maker will miss.

This yearís show is full of premieres like the new Artega, Lamborghini Aventador J, Bertone Nuccio, Ferrari F12 Berlinette and many more interesting new cars which have excited the public.

As youíve been used to so far, we will be focusing on the car tuning part of this show, so I would like to present a few creations of the tuners from Abarth, AC Schnitzer, Carlsson, Brabus, Fab Design, Gemballa, Hofele Design, Speed Art and many more that have showcased their creations to the Swiss public and to the international journalists.

One of the most impressive cars on the floor at Geneva is the Brabus Bulit Coupe 800 which has an incredible V12 engine under the bonnet which develops a staggering 800 bhp and 1,420 NM of torque.

The performances of this car would be best experienced during a test drive but since only a few people can be part of this, I would like to present a few numbers that will definitely bring some insight: 0-62 mph (100 km/h) is achieved in 3.7 seconds, 0-125 mph (200km/h) is done in just 9.8 seconds, 0-185 mph (300 km/h) in 23,8 seconds and the top speed was clocked at around 230 mph (370 km/h). This car is truly the wildest dream of anyone who knows the way to the Autobahn.

There a lot of wonderful cars presented at Geneva but the most impressive ones are always the modified ones. Just take a look at the photos and let us know what you think!
