Traditionally one of the most popular events for luxury brands, the Geneva Motor Show is full of top-of-the-range offers ranging from the most 'bling-bling' car adaptations to hypercars and flying machines.

Geneva has the something for everyone on display, but mostly, it's an exhibit for the super-rich.

Super luxury brands which include entirely customised cars like the Mansory in mint green (it most probably has a much more fancy body colour name), with a matching interior, and let's not forget the matching baby carseat. 

WATCH: One-off Bugatti is officially the most expensive new car ever

Felix Eaton, CEO of Eadon Green cars, says the Mansory's starting price starts at a cool $1-million for the base model  - and that's before taxes or any optional extras or customised bits. He adds that while Sweden might not have too many taxes, it's different in the UK where another 20% of the price can be added in taxes.

Then there's the one-off Bugatti for an extremely exclusive customer who now owns the most expensive car in the world at over R176-million.
