Oh man the SQ5 is lookin hella sexy hopefully it is released in India as well it will surely be a top seller amongst the suv market. 3.0 TDI 315 hp with a aggressive dual clutch gearbox.

Unfortunately most of these phenomenal machines never make it to our shores - at least in their original avatar.

Nonetheless been closely following the Paris Motor Show live on the web. Especially looking forward to the leaping cat's eagerly-anticipated F-Type sports car.

Looking forward to lotsa lusting over the next few days

Pity Ferrari has only a lone f12 Berlinetta on display this time. Was so expecting the 458 Monte Carlo. SO waiting for a new Ferrari, it's almost like being excited for the Hobbit, in case of the LOTR junkies out there! :-)

Keep the Cheque book ready for next year as Audi heard you loud and clear. The S6 comes by the end of this year and then the SQ5.

Jaguar has revealed the F-Type at Paris.

Pics and article from GTspirit.com

Quote:
Jaguar has officially shown their new F-Type to the public here at the 2012 Paris Motor Show. During our visit of the Jaguar stand we came across the brand new 380hp Jaguar F-Type S, the fastest V6-powered model in the new F-Type lineup.

The two-seater, convertible sports car is focused on performance, agility and driver involvement and features Jaguar’s new 3.0 liter V6 engine producing 380 horsepower. The powerplant produces the greatest specific power output of any Jaguar engine to date: 127hp per liter. The F-Type S completes its 0-100km/h time in 4.9 seconds and has an electronically limited top speed of 275km/h.

Hello Scorcher,

The below website says that show will start on September 29th 2012, but you have floated the pictures already.

I am planning to visit this weekend, but confused regarding the dates.

That would be the public event, like all auto shows, press/journalist showcase starts couple of days before the show goes public

The crosslane coupè shown by Audi is rendered to be dubbed as Q2 and would be positioned below Q3 to compete against likes of Mini. The Renault Clio looks bashing, just wonder if it would see the Indian sunlight e'er!

The other expected launches are:-
Audi A3 5-door
Renault Clio
Vw Golf next gen
Ford Mondeo next gen
Hyundai i30 3-door etc etc.

Please keep this thread updated!
