Concept Car Show – Paris – February 2008

To be honest, I had no idea about this. As I was in tourist mode, wandering around “Les Invalides”, I stumbled across a marquee, with this exhibition on. Most of the cars were displayed at Frankfurt last September, but there were a few that were not, and which I had not seen before. In no particular order, then:

Renault Laguna Coupe Concept:
Renault Altica
Peugeot 308 RC-Z
Peugeot 908 RC
BMW CS Concept
Mercedes F-700
Kia Kee
Citroen C-Metisse
Nissan Mixim
Citroen C-Cactus
Citroen C-Airscape
Volvo XC60 Concept
Saab 9-4X Concept
A couple I had not seen before, clearly based on old favourites:
The Faurecia “Premium Attitude”
Lancia D3 Stratos
And this one goes back a bit further, but is certainly intended to be a modern interpretation of “le pur sang”.
The Bugatti EB18/3 Chiron:
Slightly different, was this Chevrolet, nee Daewoo, that also featured at Frankfurt.
One production car had sneaked in………….. voted – by the French, I have to say – as the “most beautiful new car of 2007″………. no prizes, for guessing………..
