The world’s pre-eminent petrolheads will shortly be gathering and munching on fresh croissant as the Paris Motor Show opens for business.
One of the glitziest events on the automotive calendar, this year’s show will see the debuts of Europe’s best new cars for the coming year, both the concepts and the production models. Stars at the City of Light will include Ferrari’s 458 Speciale A, the Jaguar XE, Porsche Cayenne S E-Hybrid SUV and Audi TT Roadster.
Of particular interest is Jaguar’s new XE sports saloon, as the British legend goes bumper to bumper with its German rivals BMW and Mercedes-Benz in an assault on the lucrative junior executive car market. The XE features light-weight aluminium construction and new fuel efficient turbo-charged engines to cut emissions and boost economy.
