    Top 10 Cars of the 2012 Paris Motor Show

    Top 10 Cars of the 2012 Paris Motor Show


    The list of impressive new models at this year’s Paris Motor Show is a long one, but we’ve narrowed down the ten most interesting, exciting and important vehicles, starting with the Lexus LF-CC Concept.

    A look ahead at the future of the brand, this concept previews the first ever Lexus IS coupe. With dramatic styling including an even wilder version of the spindle grille, Lexus is also prepping an all-new hybrid 2.5-liter 4-cylinder engine for the rear-drive luxury two-door.

    See the list...

    what is Audi doing? I feel like their design momentum has peaked and is now sliding backward. The Crosslane and RS5 are just overwrought and boring..

    No, which is strange when you consider that the Golf was included.

    Most of the picks call into the supercar category.

    Apparently Toyota can't spell. They forgot the "U" after the "T" in the "TRD".

    I'm not the only one who dislikes Audi's designs as of late.

    Probably because some of their best designers have gone to Ford and KIA.

    You know what I think is missing? The little Audi A2 http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Audi_A2

    Now, that car was cute (especially the first pic). That's one of the cutest designs I've ever seen. An AWD version of this would have been great (with same, exact styling, no need to change that, haha). But, so was the VW Bulli microbus which has been axed "due to demand".

    Probably they realized that VE had enough compact MPVs with the Golf Plus and Touran.
