Autobiography Ultimate Edition
The most luxurious Range Rover ever is to debut at the Geneva Motor Show next month. The Autobiography Ultimate Edition has an interior hand-finished in Kalahari wood, leather and aluminium, a yacht-inspired teak load floor and a cabin which includes a rear console with a machined aluminium laptop table, drinks chiller, and two Apple iPads. You also get two special exterior paint colours and unique 20" multi-spoke diamond-turned alloys. You won’t be surprised to know that it’s expensive…at around £130k.

Esflow electric sports car
This is Nissan’s latest concept to be introduced at Geneva called the Esflow electric sports car. The rear-wheel drive two-seater incorporates parts from Nissan’s forthcoming electric LEAF production vehicle and undoubtedly looks like a futuristic 370Z. The car is driven by two electric motors – one each at each rear wheel – and its 0-62mph time is projected to be under five seconds and range around 150 miles. The real question is: could Nissan have an electric Z-car in its future?

Captur – no, it’s not a space ship
What does a crossover between a two-seater coupe, convertible, city car and an off-roader look like? According to Renault it could look like this; its latest concept called Captur. The car suggests the future look of the next generation of Renault cars and is the second of six “human life cycle” concepts from Renault. The concept – which will also launch in Geneva – features large 22-inch alloy wheels, scissor doors, bright orange paintwork and a flowing, muscular form.
