The circuit will be located in hall 7, which is usually where suppliers and aftermarket companies exhibit their products. We haven't seen photos of it yet, so we don't know what it will be paved by, but the organizers said it will include sweeping turns, bends and long straights.

Just a few days before the press preview of the Geneva auto show, the Swiss government canceled the event by implementing ban on gatherings of more than 1000 people due to concerns regarding the spread of Covid-19 virus (coronavirus) within Europe. Now, a few days after the cancellation, a video shows the state of disassembly on the show floor as manufacturers tear down their stands.

Details are sparse, but if you check out Bentley’s centenary concept, the wheelbase-king EXP 100 GT, it should give you a hint of where Mulliner could take Bentley’s production platform. The Bacalar could be an extension of that sleek, sumptuous body, meant for the same fans of exclusive—but eco-friendly—luxury.

The Geneva Motor Show , which was poised to start next week, has been canceled. He said the convention center "is taking precautionary measures inside the venue to help prevent the spread of respiratory viruses, and the New York Auto Show will follow its lead to protect exhibitors and

Photographer George Williams told C/D that he gained access to the Geneva show floor while on assignment for a manufacturer and shot the video March 1. The video reveals the great deal of work that goes into setting up and constructing a manufacturer’s stand at an auto show, as the show floor is littered with boxes and building materials while the companies tear down their displays.

The video shows booths from manufacturers such as Mercedes, Bentley, Audi, Hyundai, and many others after two days of disassembly. A lot more work remains for the automakers as they take down their stands.

“A lot of these guys (companies) have spent millions of pounds, dollars, whatever, on their stands,” Williams says in the video. “I’m wondering, is this our last ever Geneva (Auto Show)?”

Only one stand, Koenigsegg, was still being built as the manufacturer decided that it would continue with a previously planned reveal from the show floor. Last month, Supercar Blog reported that Koenigsegg was planning to use the Geneva show to unveil a concept, the Mission 500, a hypercar aimed at hitting 500 kmh, or just over 310 mph.

“Everyone here is clearly disheartened, which is sad, really sad to see,” Williams says in the video as he walks the show floor. “These guys, it’s their livelihood, stand building.”
