Geneva 2015 Galleries – The FRENCH – Renault, Citroen, DS and Borgward!?



 Geneva 2015 Galleries - The FRENCH 23

PART FOUR

When we found photos of this classic turd named Borgward, we naturally assumed from its hideous design, nauseating paint and unusual presence at a new-car show that it was French. It is actually German Belgian. Sarray.Geneva 2015 Galleries - The FRENCH 6 Geneva 2015 Galleries - The FRENCH 2

The Borgward design feels like a Karmann Ghia pretending to be a Buick, but less appealing than either. The Bakelite two-tone pastels are never a good idea. Only white with pink details would be worse.

What is this? A white and pink Citroen van concept!  Home run, chaps. Time for a white-wine lunch?Geneva 2015 Galleries - The FRENCH 26

Moving on...

So, why Geneva photos a week late?

Here is why we are revisiting this mega-show: there are 400 photos in our Geneva 2015 file folder that have not been published yet. Some of the cars are cool, some are curious, and some are normal economy hatchbacks. A dozen of the big reveals are in individual articles -- viewable at the Geneva category page over here.

But for whatever reason, these fine machines did not make it into solo posts.

Not fair, right? All photos deserve to see the light of day!

The cars could use some sun, too.

The Geneva auto show generally delivers some of the darkest, nastiest photos anywhere on the planet. Perhaps an eco initiative to have all the lights turned to their dimmest setting? Or maybe half the lights in the ceilings are off -- like at a Kmart going-out-of-business sale?

Regardless, we are fairly sure you have seen some lousy, dark and unpleasant images come back from this major motor show. Let's improve that!Geneva 2015 Galleries - The FRENCH 30 Geneva 2015 Galleries - The FRENCH 31

The second reason to give a **** is that we have put all these photos through some intensive Hollywood light/magic treatments in Photoshop to bring out their details.

Some details are still not well-lit -- like the Aston VULCAN's lower grille -- but overall these are some of the best photos from Geneva 2015 that you will find.

To make sense of this massive photo folder, let's break things out by carmaker country of origin.
