If you happened to miss out on all the Oscar buzz and are still browsing the Mail Online to decide if Leonardo Di Caprio's suit was a hit or miss, stop wasting your time. The greatest red-carpet show in Europe is kicking off this week in Geneva at the 86th International Motor Show.
This year, the Swiss capital of luxury will command heightened attention as it plays host to the first European car show since Volkswagen's diesel scandal sent shockwaves around the world last year.
The spotlight will inevitably fall on Volkswagen chief executive Matthias Mueller, who is still licking his wounds after a rocky U.S. "apology tour" in Detroit, (which the company blamed on language issues). Industry-watchers are predicting the Geneva Motor Show will be suffocating under a cloud of diesel smoke, but I beg to differ.
