The 2016 Paris Motor Show has brought us spectacular cars, from SUVs, compacts, hybrids but most importantly, sports cars and supercars. The sports cars showcased are among those that have attracted most attention and are truly impressive. Here are the best sports cars we've seen at the event.
2017 Honda Civic Type-R
The new Honda Civic Type R 2017 is presented as a prototype at the Paris Motor Show but as early as now, people are already clamoring for it to be released in the market as soon as possible. Its beastly look, together with its beastly performance of over 300hp power, makes it one of the most sought out cars of today.
The convertible version of the LaFerrari has been showcased in the Paris Motor Show, although, unlike most manufacturers, it is a display model, as the LaFerrari Aperta was already delivered exclusively to customers of the brand at a private event, in which sales of all units has been sold out. It has a canvas roof that can be attached to another hardtop carbon fiber purchased separately. As in the coupe body, it has the petrol engine V12 6.2L with 800 hp and an electric motor of 163 hp, a hybrid propulsion engine developing 963 hp in total.
