The Geneva Motorshow is one of the largest of the year and often a major source of Euro car debuts. Despite this things are relatively quiet from MINI with this year’s major debuts happening at Frankfurt in the fall or via the web this summer. However that hasn’t stopped other automakers from making Geneva a spectacular show this year – especially with the supercar debuts from Ferrari, Porsche, Lamborghini and McLaren. Then there’s the debut of the new Golf GTI, AMG A45 and the Alfa 4C that may appeal to the small car lovers out there.

Geneva is a major auto show on the international circuit each year, and MINI and BMW both have used the Geneva venue to make some major announcements in the past. What about this year? MINI has just announced what they plan to bring with them to Switzerland this year, and as much as we’d like to tell you that you’ll see the 2014 MINI Cooper, the F56, it looks like for now MINI is staying focused on a new trim package (The Bond Street) for the Clubman, and a similar emphasis on JCW to what we saw at Detroit in January. They’re still excited about the Paceman JCW (as are we), and of course the JCW GP will be on hand. That, however, is as far as the official information goes. Is that it? MINI may very well have something else up their sleeves for this show in early March. MINI and BMW both are fond of showing pre-production cars as thinly veiled concept cars. Will we see an early F56? We don’t think so. Instead look for something a bit more conceptual but still foreshadowing something eventually meant for production.
