I’m happy to report I’ve been running around like a headless poussin for the past two days. Happy, because that means there was lots of new performance metal to see at the Paris motor show and there are going to be plenty of exciting group tests in the next 12 months of evo.

Struggling to whittle down the highlights, I thought it would be fun to share the quick-snap opinions I formulated as I scampered around the show. So, in five words or fewer, here’s MY Paris show…

Range Rover: way too fat

Jaguar F-type: worth the wait. Love it

Porsche Panamera Sport Turismo: flipping ace. The default Panamera

Kia Proceed: nice, but looks like Astra

Ford Mondeo: unfeasibly good looking

Ford Ecosport: unfeasibly naff. Daihatsu Terios-like

Mini Paceman: ugliest car here. Not cool

Peugeot Onyx (above): proper concept car p*rn

Peugeot RCZ R: could finally top the TT

Renaultsport Clio 200 Turbo: can’t wait to drive it

Nissan Juke Nismo: hot hatch dark horse

Vauxhall Adam: trying too hard…

SEAT Leon FR: …must try harder

VW Golf GTI: just spot on. Again

Mercedes SLS Electric: best colour scheme ever

McLaren P1 (below): undisputed show star. Lewis who?

The Renaultsport looks pretty good, I just hope that gearbox hasn't messed it up! I was wondering what you meant by "can't wait to drive it". I would too, to make sure it's still good!

Love the P1 looks !! finally smthg bonkers and insane. just dont get me started on all that hybrid bulks!

P1 is disgracingly ugly and shares way too much components with its little sibbling MP4-12C. Which looks much nicer, but a lot less comvincing than the Ferrari 458 Italia. Anyway, McLaren's marketing must be completely bonkers to come up with such an hideous name. MP4012C?!? WTF...
