Comments

The Geneva International Motor Show is an annual auto show held in March in the Swiss city of Geneva. First held in 1905, the Salon has hosted almost all major internal combustion-engined models in the history of the automobile, along with benzene- and steam-powered cars from the beginning of the century.
