Lamborghini is showing what it calls a street-legal supercar, the Veneno – of which only three will be sold, each costing £2.6 million plus tax – at the 2013 Geneva motor show. The Veneno is based on the Aventador supercar, and shares its 6.5-litre V12 engine although in the Veneno it develops 50bhp more, at 750bhp. That, combined with a wind-cheating shape, should mean a top speed of 221mph. Picture: FABRICE COFFRINI/AFP/Getty Images

The Volkswagen XL1 – a radical two-seater hybrid that averages 314mpg – will go on sale later this year. The XL1 is the culmination of a project to produce a car that could travel 100km (62 miles) on one litre (0.22 gallons) of diesel. Power comes from a plug-in hybrid system that combines a 47bhp two-cylinder diesel engine with a 26bhp electric motor. Picture: FABRICE COFFRINI/AFP/Getty Images
