Concepts at Geneva - The Ugliest, Lamest and Most Far Out

Three concepts from Geneva represent the ugliest, the lamest, and the most far out presentations at this year's show. Laugh, cry, and be dumbfounded.

Big car shows like the Geneva Motor Show are often the place where automakers flex their wings a little bit. They tend to showcase their latest concepts, coolest designs, and unveil their hottest models (some of them are cars). Quite often, though, they ride the Fail Whale into automotive jeerdom and then spend the next six months attempting to recoup all of their lost PR.

This year was no different. Geneva saw unveilings that were spectacular, trend-setting, and beyond compare. Of course, once the covers are off, nobody cares about those cars anymore. We live in a world of blooper reels, race wreck instant replays, and wardrobe malfunction slow-mo. We want epic F ups and we want them often.

So here are my picks for this year's Geneva show face palms: the ugliest, lamest, and most "what the hell were you smoking?" concepts revealed at the 2012 show. So sit back, relax, and prepare to hit that big Facebook "like" button up there 'cause all your friends are gonna wanna see this too.

LOL... <O.o> Seriously funny reading! "They ride the Fail Whale into automotive jeerdom and then spend the next six months attempting to recoup all of their lost PR." :) But where is the other Toyota disaster of the show? Yes, I am referring to the FT-Bh monstrosity that they are trying to push like mad everywhere.. With a great video with sound pumping, and some girl breathlessly exhaling.... Pity about the subject... I mean, we have had it for YEARS with the Prius already but they outdid themselves there! It looks like some Giant took a du&p on a Prius, then the back end reminds me of a sunshade we had on our Tandem pram, it was so ugly too.. I have added this to my Pinterest board for a laugh! pinterest.com/electriccar/ugly-electric-cars/ Thanks for the lulz...
Thanks @Cool. I didn't include the FT-Bh because I actually think that despite its completely horrendous looks, it is at least innovative underneath its skin. Plus I wanted to narrow the list to 3. :)
