Default Paris Auto Show 2010

I am just back from Paris auto show.
I have been multiple times to our Delhi auto show and auto shows in Chicago and Detroit. But Paris auto show experience is really amazing. The whole presentation, the enthusiasm in show goers and above all the friendliness and politeness of the attendants is something to experience. Just as an icebreaker, a 12 year old boy seating inside a Ferrari 458 italia taking feeling of the car and a suited lady from Ferrai is trying to answer his "technical" queries about the car.

Amazed.

A lot of a photos and a writeup will follow shortly. Have to catch up with some sleep.

@Sinhsha

Only the promise is showing, no pictures!

I think you are the only Team-BHPian who had the luck to visit the Paris Motor Show. Eagerly waiting for the pics.

Edit: Looks like I was faster than the computer! Nice Pics!
Is that a Porsche? Looks like the Lambo Concept to me!

Whoa- that looks like a Batmobile!

I attended the Sydney Motor Expo in 2000 (didn't plan to, just that I was bored and it was right next door!) and loved it.

Can you put captions on some of your pics? While most are obvious, I coouldn't make out some of the cars.

Nice thread, BTW!

Default Some more

The new 6 series is just awesome. My camera is not very good to present the glory of some of the beauties.
I think it's enough for now. Will post some tomorrow.

Great pics @sinhsha! Totally love the R8 GT but Lamborghini has not done a good design job with the Sesto concept.
Do you have pics of the 4 Lotus concepts? Those were simply amazing!

Keep 'em coming!

more pics of the lotus stable, please!
btw, how come they allow the visitors to click pics with those exotics? isn't there any potential threat, as in complimentary pin-stripes from the visitors?

Default Lotus Concepts

Two are already posted. If you can't locate them I can add comments after them to help you. I am posting two others. And The venturi thing that broke land speed record is going as bonus.

@Sinhsha - Thanks for sharing the pics; Appreciate if you've more pics of Lambo & can share it for me. Finally the design seems to be different from LP640 & Reventon, otherwise, everything looks the same.

Also, pls share if there were any info put up in front of Honda motorcycle? I would love to read more about that.

@sinhsha These photographs are great. You must have had a lot of fun. Got any favourites picked out? Oh by the way, I was so excited about the article I came across that I went ahead and posted a thread and completely missed this one. Sorry about that. But I'm sure you'd want to see these ones too Fit to Post: Yahoo! India News Blog Archive Head-Turning Concept Cars at the Paris Auto Show

I'm new here but I thought I'd jump right in. David Coulthard used to be one of my favourite racers. I'm glad to see he's still so involved with cars. Here he is introducing one at the Paris auto show 2010 Paris Auto Show: 2012 Mercedes-Benz CLS

I was about to start a new thread on this and then I saw this one!
Most Car shows this week are featuring the exploits!


I must say the vehicles to look for:

Fiesta Hatch and Dacia Duster. Both are perfect for India!
