Paris Motor Show 2012: Best Of

The Paris Motor Show is well underway and there’s certainly a solid spread of fantastic news cars to enjoy. Here’s Specialised Covers round up of all the best on show…

Bentley Continental GT3 Racer

Specialised Covers were fortunate enough to provide the official cover for this fantastic new Bentley. The Union Jack Reveal Cover  really captures the essence of this true British manufacture and it was great testament for yet another British company to supply this innovative cover.

Audi A3 Sportback

This, the five-door version of the A3 will cost an additional £620 over the equivalent three-door, with prices starting from £19,825. The five-door is 35mm longer than the three-door, which Audi claims “several more millimetres” of legroom.

Audi Q2

The Crosslane’s Q2 is likely to be the first of three crossovers, soon to be followed by the Q4 and Q6. The even numbered Q models will be sportier than the odd numbered Q3, 5 and 7. Production is expected in 2015 and is intended to rival the Mini Countryman and Paceman.

Jaguar F-Type

The new F-Type is one of the most beautiful cars to come out of the Paris Motor Show; its’ gorgeous curves and grinning front grille ensures the F-Type will be a massive success when it’s released. A date has yet to be announced although orders are currently being taken and prices starting around £58,000.

Ford Mondeo

Astonishingly, the Mondeo boasts a microscopic 1.0-litre Ecoboost engine, that’s currently at the heart of Ford’s future plans. Other key changes includes; a lower chassis, updated suspension similar to that of BMW and Audi and the introduction of electric power steering, which is claimed to save fuel.

Renaultsport Clio

Renault have flipped the Clio’s traditional design and racing prowess, in an attempt to turn the latest addition into a more focused driver’s tool. Gone is the 2-litre engine and manual gearbox and in its place, a 1.6-turbo turbocharged dual-clutch automatic gearbox.

Vauxhall Adam

The strangely named Adam - seen as a rival to the Citreon DS3 and Fiat 500 is expected to hit showrooms before 2013. Its vast customisable offerings, which include; twelve exterior colours, three roof colours and twelve wheel designs all contribute towards an innovative design that Vauxhall claim “over one million trim and colour designs exist.”


Although it’s previously been unveiled as a concept, the GTi 7 appeared almost production ready. Available in two power outputs, 217 or 227bhp, the lower-powered model will boast a reasonable 47mpg and cruise to 60mph in 6.6 seconds.
