This year at the Frankfurt In­ter­na­tional Mo­tor Show, au­tomak­ers showed the heights and depths of their in­ge­nu­ity. Rel­a­tively speak­ing, of course.

Fer­rari showed an ‘en­try level’ su­per­car, the US$234,000 Portofino, while Mercedes-Benz showed the ul­ti­mate For­mula One-in­spired car it could con­ceive, the US$2.7mn AMG Project One. Lam­borgh­ini dis­cussed the even­tu­al­ity of hy­bridi­s­a­tion within its fleet; Jaguar showed off an all-elec­tric E-Type meant to show how the au­tomaker is mov­ing to­ward elec­tric to­tal­ity within its ranks. And while BMW said there is “no dra­matic drop” in the pop­u­lar­ity of diesel technology in its cars, it si­mul­ta­ne­ously un­veiled its big­gest SUV ever and gave the tiny i3 elec­tric car a makeover to boost its ap­peal.

Call it schiz­o­phrenic, but there was plenty to see - in­clud­ing a bevy of elec­tric con­cepts. Here are the most ex­cit­ing cars from the show floor in Frankfurt this year.
