Summary Box: Automakers show off designs in Geneva

PRICEY DREAM MACHINE: Visitors at the Geneva Motor Show will see Lamborghini's Aventador J, a one-off topless design already sold to a European buyer for $3.3 million.

NISSAN'S NOTION: Nissan's luxury brand Infiniti showcased its electric Emerg-E concept sports car, of which only two will be made. It can reach 120 miles per hour. At that speed the batteries will last just 15 minutes. No plans to sell the car after the show.

SCI-FI HIGH: There's also a 60th anniversary edition of the legendary Alfa Romeo Disco Volante that inspired Jaguar's classic E-Type. The car's name translates to "Flying Saucer."
