Italdesign Giugiaro has had a very nice string of Geneva show cars – last year's GEA autonomous concept was preceded by 2014's Clipper electric MPV, which came a year after the 2013 Parcour off-road sports coupe (which gave way to the Audi Nanuk Quattro later that year).

But instead, the Italian design house once again debuted one of the more interesting concepts of the show. The all-new GTZero is Italdesign's vision of a modular, all-electric grand tourer packed with innovation.

Singapore's first home-grown hypercar is in development by a new company called Vanda Electric. The Dendrobium, named for a Singaporean orchid, is an ambitious project that's projected to make some 1,500 horsepower, 4,000 Nm of torque and a blistering 0-100 km/h time around 2.6 seconds.

When the Concept_One was first revealed back in 2011, the all-electric vehicle's spec sheet was hard to believe. Despite this, Rimac Automobili said it was aiming to deliver a limited production run in 2013, and even opened its order book in 2012.
