Arguably the most prestigious auto show of them all, this year’s Geneva Motor Show looks to combine the venue’s usual theme of high-powered exotic and luxury cars with new, green hybrid technology. With the 2010 Geneva Auto Show officially kicking off its schedule of world premieres on Tuesday, March 2nd, the show will also be open on the 1st allowing us to bring you plenty of early coverage – particularly on the wild creations from the German tuning industry.

Along with our usual fast-paced blogging of all the new vehicles, we’ve launched a complete Geneva Auto Show coverage hub, where you can find all of our stories in one convenient location. To access that page click the link below, where we’ve already assembled as much show news as possible:

2010 Geneva Auto Show Coverage

World premieres for this year’s show include a long list of high-end hybrids, from the Ferrari 599 Hybrid Concept, Porsche GT3 R Hybrid, 2011 Porsche Cayenne (including a Hybrid model), 2011 Volkswagen Touareg (including a Hybrid model), BMW Concept 5 Series ActiveHybrid, Audi A8 Hybrid and Lexus CT200h – the first full hybrid in the premium compact class. Lotus will also show a hybrid concept based on the Evora sports car. Called the 414E Hybrid, it works like the Chevy Volt, delivering 35 miles of emissions-free electric driving before the gasoline engine kicks in to extend the car’s range to 300 miles. Oh, and it also makes 400-hp!

Not all unveilings will be hybrids however, with several high-performance models relying on good-old internal combustion technology. These include a new high-performance version of the Lamborghini Gallardo, referred to as either the LP570-4 SuperVeloce or the LP570-4 Superleggera, as well as Audi’s new RS5 and the Porsche 911 Turbo S. Plus, there will be plenty of wildly modified cars from renowned German tuning houses such as Brabus, TechArt, Hamann, Carlsson, ABT Sportsline and Mansory.
