2014 Geneva Motor show was all about Cars, Technology and Fashion. With plenty of glamorous models around, it was the cars of tomorrow that sent the senses tingling!

Lamborghini Huracan:
The Huracan is a replacement for the Gallardo, which is Laborghini's most successful model with more than 14,000 cars on the road. The Huracan sits on the same carbon-fibre chassis, like the bigger Aventador and is powered by a V10 engine, which pumps out a whopping 610 bhp, driven to the road through all four wheels and enough to get the supercar from 0-100kmph in 3.2 sec and a top speed of 323 kmph.

BMW 2-Series Active Tourer:
It’s a BMW, but surely not as we know it, as for the first time the German brand will sell a front-wheel-drive model. It will also be the first BMW model to be offered with three-cylinder power in the form of compact new turbocharged 1.5-litre petrol engine, closely related to that in the new Mini. The proportions of the Active Tourer differ greatly to those of traditional rear-wheel-drive BMW models, especially around the front-end, which receives a comparatively short and heavily angled front fascia.

McLaren 650 S:
If you take a McLaren 12C as a starting point and blend the styling and technology from the P1 hypercar, it will result in new 650 S. Revealed in coupe form, the 650S sits into the company's line-up between the 12C and the P1. Powered by 3.8-litre twin-turbo V8 engine, with an increased output of 641bhp, while the torque has gone up from 600 Nm to 678 Nm. As a result the 0-100 kmph time has dropped by 0.1 seconds to 3.0 seconds, while 0-200 kmph now takes just 8.4 seconds.

Rolls-Royce Ghost II:
The legendry British brand- Rolls-Royce has facelifted its 2009 launched Ghost. The idea is to give it a more modern stance and add latest technology, that will pamper its occupants to an even greater extent, than the current model. There won't be any mechanical changes and existing twin-turbocharged 6.6-liter V-12 will be doing its duty under the hood, which outputs 563 bhp and 780 nm of torque.

2015 Ford Mustang:
The 2015 sixth-generation Mustang made its public debut at the 2014 Geneva Motor Show. Available in two trims, the GT will sport a 5.0-liter V8 engine, estimated to generate more than 420 bhp and 528 Nm of torque, while the base model will be powered by a 2.3-litres EcoBoost four-cylinder unit under its hood. The car is likely to go on sale in Europe in the fourth quarter of the on-going year. Right hand drives will make it to India by early next year.
