The 79th Geneva International Motor Show starts in under two weeks and if you canâ€™t be there you neednâ€™t miss a thing. Each day from 10am (8pm AEDT) an internet television channel will have footage of all the latest from the show. If youâ€™re keen, you can bookmark the page now: www.salon-auto.tv.
The show runs from 5-15 March, however the web-TV channel will run for four extra days (2-16 March), covering events in the lead up and conclusion to the show.
As is to be expected, there are a host of manufacturers revealing new models in Geneva, including Aston Martin, Audi, BMW, Mazda, Renault and Porsche. There is also some speculation that a new hot Golf R20T could be revealed.
A full list of model premieres will be available soon on the showâ€™s official website. The full press release announcing salon-auto.tv can be read after the jump.
