As the great and the good of the world's car industry descended on Geneva today for its annual two-week knees up, petrolheads had their eyes on one thing: supercars.

From Bugatti's (potentially) record-breaking Chiron to China's first-ever supercar, aka Techrules' 220mph hybrid, the options for those intent on splashing the cash were pretty limitless.

What are the shiniest toys at this year's show? Scroll down for some of the headline-grabbers.

Bugatti said it had to limit its latest €2.4m offering to 420km/h for the road version - but reckons it can break speed records. "It is part of human nature to cross boundaries and set new records," said chief executive Wolfgang Duerheimer. Quite...

With a top speed of 217mph, the €1.9m Centenario - launched in honour of Ferruccio Lamborhini's 100th birthday - is the most powerful Lamborghini ever built. But the company said only 20 coupe and 20 roadster versions will be produced - and with all 40 cars already sold, anyone wanting one may have to wait until a second hand version comes up.

3. Aston Martin DB11, £155,000

After the hype of the super-exclusive "James Bond" DB10, the British manufacturer's latest instalment comes with 5.2 litre, twin-turbocharged V12 engine. Aston says it's the first product launched under its "Second Century" plan: "DB11 is the bold new figurehead of the illustrious ‘DB’ bloodline and an authentic, dynamic sporting GT in the finest Aston Martin tradition."

4. McLaren 570GT: £154,000

With high-end trimmings, luxuries like vanity mirrors and a luggage space bigger than a Ford Fiesta, McLaren is aiming to expand its appeal with the 570GT. That doesn't mean it ditches the engineering: with a V8 twin turbo engine and 0-60mph in 3.4 seconds, this is McLaren at its best.

5. Techrules Trev

Techrules TREV supercar: China's first-ever supercar - which has a top speed of 220mph - is powered using a "turbine-charging electric vehicle" system, which extends its range. Although the vehicle is a hybrid, one of its iterations is powered with jet fuel. Boom.
