The 2014 Paris Motor Show--History and the Future

Paris motor show

From October 4th to 19th 2014 At Paris Expo Porte de Versailles

April 11, 2014: Two years ago the Show welcomed 1.231.416 visitors and nearly 12,000 journalists from 103 countries, placing once again the Paris Motor Show ahead of all the most important international shows.

The 2014 Paris Motor Show is already very promising! The surface of the exhibition areas has increased and many World Premiere releases have already been scheduled by French and foreign manufacturers. Returning manufacturers (Aston Martin, Tesla Motors …) and equipment manufacturers (Faurecia…) will enrich this 2014 edition.

All the players of the international automobile sector will be there: private cars, utility and company vehicles, bodywork, equipment and accessories, services, second-hand cars…

Furthermore, many events and test drives will also take place during this new edition of the Show.

The Automobiles and Fashion Exhibition Pavilion 8

As it does for every edition, the Show will once again host an exceptional historical exhibition. This year the chosen theme is “Automobiles and Fashion”, in partnership with INA (the French Broadcasting Institute).

Both born at the heart of the Industrial Revolution, Automobiles and Fashion have never stopped intertwining thanks to their shared taste for Style.

Concours d’élégance, craftsmanship, icons, a passion for shapes, colours and lines, all the shared interests which have brought them closer together.

The exhibition sequence will follow the timeline of the great eras which have left their mark on the history of Automobiles and Fashion: pre-war (Haute Couture and Concours d’élégance), post-War (the Automobile dream), the Pop Art years, the Seventies and Eighties combining futuristicconcept cars and legendary advertisements, up until our contemporary era marked by the boom of niches, eco-friendly design and customization.

In harmony with this theme, over 40 cars will be displayed during the exhibition.
