Concept Cars Set for 2011 Geneva Motor Show [Big Picture]

Geneva is as much about the cars you can’t – and never will be able to – buy. Concept cars can sometimes hint at future models from manufacturers, testing the public’s reaction to new styling schemes.

They can sometimes be true dream machines or more often than not, are just an excuse for a car manufacturer to show off its new model a year or so early.

The 2011 Geneva Motor Show is fast approaching and excitement is building already. Tickets for the show are already on sale and we’re thrilled to be going along to the press days before the main event so we can bring you all the news and photos as early as possible.

The 81st Salon De L’Automobile opens to the public on 3 March and from what we know already it’s likely to be one of the most exciting shows ever. After a succession of motor shows dominated by the recession, it looks like car makers have rediscovered the motivation to show a bit of glamour and give us something to dream over.

Yes, the supercars are back at 2011 Geneva Motor Show with exciting all-new cars debuting from Ferrari, Lamborghini and Pagani. Smaller players on the supercar scene will also be looking to steal some of the limelight too.

It’s not all million-dollar playthings for those still with the money in the bank though – all sorts of cars will be debuting at Geneva. Here are some concept cars we’re especially excited about.

Dates and opening times for the Geneva show are as follows: 3-13 March 2011, open Monday-Friday 10am to 8pm, and Saturday-Sunday 9am to 7pm.
