The 2013 Geneva International Motor Show - Own For over 100yrs, the Geneva International Motor Show has been a place for manufacturers to drop their newest and greatest creations. This year, the show was a little crazy, with everything from hybrids that top 900hp, to 200mph sedans, to a car that steers with its rear tires. Because 10 isn't a prime number, here are 11 of the absolute best the show had to offer: Pininfarina Sergio To commemorate the 2012 passing of their patriarch, Italian design firm Pininfarina just dropped the eponymous Sergio, in which they chopped a perfectly fine Ferrari 458 Italia (which they designed), and turned it into... this.

Top 25 Craziest Beards Ever Beards…those legendary staples of manliness. Just think of Abraham Lincoln, John Lennon, and Ernest Hemingway. Men among boys many would say.

Pininfarina Sergio - Own For decades, Pininfarina's been designing some of the most exotic car shapes in the world for carmakers like Ferrari, Maserati, Cadillac, and Alfa Romeo; to commemorate the 2012 passing of their patriarch, they've just dropped the eponymous Sergio, in which they chopped a perfectly fine Ferrari 458 Italia (which they designed), and turned it into... this: Italians have a rep for being a passionate people, so it should come as no surprise that they describe the car as being a 1960s throwback that has a "bulging and sensual" front that's "penetrating into a rear that is projected forward"; the pieces that serve a specific aerodynamic purpose are left black, while the rest -- the fenders and doors, etc. -- are painted red, which probably bugs the crap outta Mick Jagger.

But if not, chances are you’ll enjoy these renderings anyway, especially since they’re slated to become reality: Designer Eduard Gray has announced that the 122 will be built in the near future. SLIDESHOW: Futuristic Airbus Plane Has Transparent Cabin and More The 122, to be built by the Ned Ship Group, measures 38 meters (125 feet) from bow to stern, features a Rolls-Royce engine, pumps out 14,000hp and hits a top speed of 55 knots (about 63mph). And then there’s the interior: four large staterooms, reception and salon areas, crew cabins, 52″ LED televisions and Bang & Olufson sound systems in every room. Of course, the Strand Craft 122 would fall short of the ultimate luxury standard if it didn’t come with a custom-made supercar.

Car that runs on wine and cheese showcased at eco-rally Imagine pulling up to a gas station, and rather than being offered the usual choice between regular or premium unleaded, the gas pump instead read "Chardonnay" or "Pinot Noir."

Audi Urban Concept says less is more Is less really more? I guess that is what the Audi Urban Concept believes in, although the vehicle does seem to hail from a future past – sporting design cues of the first generation of vehicles, although you can be sure that the whole thing is nothing but pure 21st century goodness.
