Citroen will reveal a new concept car based on its new C1 supermini at the Geneva motor show next week. The new Swiss & Me concept car is designed to show the personalisation options open to C1 owners, and comes with unique graphics and contrasting body trim.

The Lyonheart K sports car has been delayed by up to one year as its makers want to use a new platform and engine, likely sourced from the Jaguar F-type. Lyonheart plans to show the car in Geneva next year, with prices starting at around £295,700 before tax.

Kia's five-door Cee'd GT has gone on sale, priced from £20,495. Joining the three-door model launched last year, the Cee'd GT features a turbocharged version of Kia's 1.6-litre petrol engine with 201bhp. The car features revised exterior trim, stiffer suspension and sharper steering. Both standard GT and GT Tech trims are available.

Bugatti says all nine units of its limited-edition Legends series have been sold. Three units of each car, which commemorates important people from the company's history, have been produced. A fourth Bugatti Legends car will be revealed in Geneva next week.

Skoda has launched Outdoor and Outdoor Plus versions of its new Superb. The standard car features new front and rear bumpers, side body mouldings and wheel arch extensions, while Outdoor Plus models add leather trim and sat-nav. Available with a 2.0-litre TDI engine in either 138bhp or 168bhp forms; the cars cost from £26,995 and £29,235 respectively.

Fashion designer Louis Vuitton has created a new set of luggage to sell alongside the BMW i8 plug-in hybrid. The luggage features carbonfibre, and will go on sale from April. The i8 sports car will be available later this year.

Jaguar F-type

The Jaguar F-Type convertible provides direct competition to the 718 Boxster and the 911 Cabriolet, but can the big cat take a bite out of its Porsche rivals?

It's funny what a difference that bodykit makes to the C1. Makes it look infinitely sportier!
