Paris Motor Show concept cars

BMW concept active tourer

The Paris Motor Show isn’t just about the cars which will be hitting your local dealerships sometime soon.

This year’s 2012 Mondial Automobile Paris Motor Show was home to some of the most interesting concept cars around.

While some concepts showcased green technology, others were far more flamboyant in looks and were branded “design studies”.

Onyx

Peugeot OnyxProbably the best Paris concept car by a long way, the Onyx is the result of Peugeot’s racing division being allowed to let their hair down.
It’s made from copper sheets and carbon fibre, and it has the powertrain from a Peugeot Le Mans car – so its has 600bhp and also has a kinetic energy recovery system.
