We had a tough time yesterday keeping up with the launches taking place at the 85th Geneva Motor Show.

So, here is a quick look at some of the important launches that took place yesterday at the prestigious event.

The fastest and the lightest Aventador ever, the car is 50kgs lighter than a usual Aventador and delivers 750bhp of power. And if that doesn’t make much sense to you, it does 0 to 100km/h in just 2.8 seconds. Read more about the car here.
