The Geneva Motor Show might as well be called The Supercar Show or The You Can’t Afford This Show because if a car is expensive, exclusive, has more than 1,000 horsepower or all of the above, this is probably the place you’ll find it.
And this year’s show didn’t disappoint, because all the high-end brands we know and love and even bunch of random boutique supercar makers we’ve never heard of and can’t pronounce all debuted their latest cars here.
Here are our picks for the 5 most significant and buzzworthy debuts of the show.

Often home to debuts of some of the world’s craziest and most exotic supercars, the Geneva Motor Show is also one of the largest auto shows in the world. Unfortunately, we now live in an age where the Internet plays a bigger role in car unveilings than actual auto shows, so many automakers now take advantage by unveiling their debuts ahead of time.
But that doesn’t mean there aren’t some that are still kept under wraps. We may have already seen photos for many of the debuts heading to the 2016 Geneva Motor Show, but there’s nothing like checking them out in the flesh.

The Lamborghini Huracán Spyder has made its official debut at the 2015 Frankfurt Motor Show.
Serving as the successor to the Lamborghini Gallardo LP560-4 Spyder, the new Huracán Spyder features an authentic, electric soft top that can be opened in 17 seconds at driving speeds up to 31 mph. The convertible variant of the Huracán is powered by the same 5.2-liter naturally aspirated V10 engine sporting 610 horsepower and 412 pound-feet of torque found in the coupe, mated to a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission.
Compared to the coupe, the convertible model does the 0-60 mph sprint 0.2 seconds slower at a time of 3.4 seconds versus the coupe’s 3.2. Dry weight on the Huracán Spyder is 3,400 pounds (1,542 kg) while the coupe tips the scale at 3,135 lbs (1,422 kg).
The Lamborghini Huracán Spyder will benefit from the 2016 model year Huracán features, which includes a cylinder deactivation system and a stop-start system that reduces CO2 by 14 percent compared to the Gallardo Spyder. There is also a new electronically controlled all-wheel drive setup for improved driving behavior, according to the Italian automaker.
'The Huracán LP 610-4 Spyder is the next chapter in the success story of the naturally aspirated V10 Huracán, and continues a Lamborghini tradition of open air motoring,' says Stephan Winkelmann, President and CEO of Automobili Lamborghini. 'The Huracán Spyder combines the innovation, performance and appeal of the Huracán coupé, with new technologies and an added emotional dimension. Its predecessor, the Gallardo Spyder, was the best-selling open top model in Lamborghini’s history: we expect the Huracán Spyder to exceed its predecessor in every way.'
