Ever yother year, the City of Lights hosts an event showcasing the latest cars that are destined for Europe and the rest of the world. The show is held in different cities each year, and this year, the event was held in Paris. The name of the show was the Paris Motor Show. This show not only focused on the vehicles but the technology as well, both inside the car and under the hood. If you missed the show, you missed the chance to look at some serious machinery.
2017 Renault Trezor Concept
This is an all electric, two-seat car that has a very sleek look and can go from 0 to 60 in less than four seconds. It has a central carbon shell and a tubular steel frame. It has an ultra-low stance, which gives it a drag coefficient of 0.22. If you are considering moving to France so that you can buy one of these amazing machines, think again. This car won’t likely go into production, however, some of the specific designs will be found on cars in the future.
This is a German touring car, but it looks more like a race car. It has a 4.0-liter V-8 engine that was hand built. It is capable of going for 0 to 60 in 3.5 seconds. The color of the vehicle shown at the event was Green Hell Mango, which makes it look even more like a race car.
