Paris Motor Show Preview

Paris Motor Show 2008 - 4 October to 19 October

The 2008 Paris Motor Show is only a few weeks away and will take place from 4 October to 19 October 2008, in Paris Expo, Porte de Versailles. Many Manufacturers are launching new vehicles in Paris, including Aston Martin, Ferrari, Ford and Mini.

The most anticipated vehicle set to debut in Paris is the Aston Martin One-77, currently not much is known about the new Aston except that it will feature a carbon fibre chassis, a handcrafted aluminium body, and a 7.0 litre V12 engine. There has currently only been one teaser image of the One-77 released, and Cristiano Ronaldo has been reported testing the new Aston.

The Ferrari California brand is also set to be revived and will be the first California to be produced since the mid-60's, and has apparently had design input from Michael Schumacher. The 2009 version of the supercar will be the first Ferrari to feature a front-engined V8, which will produce 453bhp.
