Geneva car show 2016 - Part III A tour of the goings on at the annual coming together of the world's motor industry Thu 3 Mar 2016 Model white cars sits in a cross formation of the Swiss national flag McLaren introduced its new 570GT supercar that even boasts decent bootspace Alfa Romeo unveiled the affordable petrol and diesel versions of its new Giulia saloon. Geneva saw the rival to BMW's 3-Series arrive with a new 2.2-litre diesel engine and a 2-litre petrol. The Geneva motor show was awash with new technology and virtual reality headsets were a common sight on most stands. The technology on display is not just being used to promote car sales; it's also being pitched as a useful education tool for road safety. Engineers mix with the media during the official press days, eager to get a closer look at what rivals are up to. Here an attendee pays particular interest to teh headlight on the new Bentley Mulsanne. US actor and race driver Patrick Dempsey (L) is a fully-fledged petrolhead so he wasn't going to miss out on Geneva, even if it meant having to do a few publicity stunts, like cutting a wheel of cheese along with Jean-Claude Biver (R), head of LVMH's watch business. The anointed one? President of Federation Internationale de l'Automobile (FIA) Jean Todt was in attendance at the show, particularly amongst the Italian brands like Maserati. Peugeot is probably keeping its powder dry on new models ahead of the Paris motor show this autumn, but Geneva did play host to the introduction of its new Traveller. Aimed at the likes of the taxi market it comes with up to nine-seats and will also sell as a commercial. The vehicle is effectively a rebadged Toyota ProAce, part of a deal between the two firms. Harald Krueger, chief executive of BMW, alongside the new M760Li, a motorway monster and the first time the brand's M Division has done its magic on the car's flagship model range.
