The 2016 Geneva motor show has brought us everything from hypercars with four-figure power outputs to an MPV that thinks it's a crossover.

Below, Autocar’s head of video Matt Prior has whittled down the selection to look over four of the show’s hottest new arrivals.

Which is your favourite? Let us know in the comments below.

Video analysis of the Bugatti Chiron

Bugatti’s Veyron replacement makes use of a reworked quad-turbocharged W16 engine that produces 1479bhp. It can accelerate to 62mph in a neck-snapping 2.5sec, and onto a top speed of 261mph. If big numbers are your thing, the Bugatti Chiron can be yours for, gulp, £1.64 million. Read more about the Chiron here.

Video analysis of the Lamborghini Centenario

Nothing can make an Aventador SV look tame, nothing apart from the new Lamborghini Centenario. The V12 supercar is based on the Aventador, but it produces 19bhp more than the SV and its exterior takes aggressive design to a whole new level. Just 40 will be produced, and they’ve all been sold. Read more about the Centenario here.

Video analysis of the Porsche 911 R

Thank Porsche for building the 911 R. It’s proof the car maker hasn’t forgotten about the enthusiast driver, who seeks engagement and rawness over practicality and ease of use. The car uses the flat-six engine of the GT3 RS and mates it to a proper manual gearbox. For many, this will be the car of Geneva. Read more about the 911 R here.

Video analysis of the Aston Martin DB11

The DB9 bows out of production with the arrival of the DB11. With a new twin-turbocharged 5.2-litre V12, it produces 600bhp and 516lb ft of torque, making it the most potent Aston Martin DB model ever produced. There’s little doubt it’ll be fast, but will turbocharging quell the DB11’s character? Read more about the DB11 here.

Porsche 911R. By a big margin. They have dropped the silly 7 speed box for a 6 speed. Just how do they get to the price? And will anyone not a collector be able to buy one? A shame if as is probably the case, it's another serious Porsche that true enthusiasta just cannot buy.

    New top-of-the-line Porsche hybrid, though fast and flexible, is simply too heavy to strike the same sweet sporting compromise as its siblings
  • Caterham Seven 420R Donington Edition
    First Drive
    25 July 2017
    Limited-edition road-legal Caterham track car is a superbly enthralling drive, with enough creature comforts to be used on the road as well. Even more addictive than most of its rangemates
  • McLaren 570S Spider
    First Drive
    25 July 2017
    McLaren has created its most attainable drop-top by removing the roof from the 570S coupé, but none of the car's talent has come away with it
  • 2017 Range Rover Velar
    First Drive
    23 July 2017
    The Range Rover Velar is the most road-biased car Land Rover has made. So does it still feel like a proper part of the family?

    A model upon which Seat has staked its future, the new Ibiza must now deliver
