The Paris Motor Show (Mondial de l'Automobile) has been going since the end of the 19th century when horseless carriages were shown at a Universal Expo. In 1894 an automobile race between Paris and Rouen was held. Because it was so popular people wanted to make sure that only cars, and not other vehicles, entered and this was the inspiration for starting the automobile exhibition in the Grand Palais. Today it is one of the main calendar events for Paris and increasingly impressive cars have been shown over the years. This year’s Motor Show run from October 2-17 in the Paris Expo Porte de Versailles. The theme of the 2010 special exhibition is "The Incredible Collection 2: automobile manufacturers, collections and museums."

Eye Catching 2010 Exhibits

Porsche has recreated its1950s Speedster which has more than a hint of James Bond about it with a sophisticated style and a huge price tag at 144,000 pounds. Known as the 356 Speedster Porsche gave a nice touch only creating 356 of these cars worldwide. The car certainly lives up to its name managing 0-62mph in 4.6 seconds and a top speed of 189.5mph. The Speedster has a hand-finished interior which can come in black or white.

The Lamborghini Sesto Elemento is even faster doing 0-62mph in 2.5 seconds. This is the height of the new lightweight carbon fibre technology. Watching the Lamborghini Sesto Elemento burst through a wall of flames at the Paris Motor Show 2010 is to feel like you area seeing the future of car engineering.

The Audi Quattro concept 2010 was built to celebrate 30 years of Quattro. The car is based on a shortened Audi RS5 platform and features a tuned engine from the TT RS.
