The Geneva Motor Show. In French, Salon International de l'Auto. Along with the likes of Frankfurt, Paris and New York, the annual event is one of the most important dates on the motoring world's calendar.

The Swiss city has played host to the unveiling of some of our most beloved cars. In recent years, those have included the Aston Martin One-77, Lamborghini's Aventador, and the Tata Nano. (Wait, what? -ed)
