Gizmag spent a busy two days zipping through the halls of the Paris Motor Show to check out the latest automobiles from manufacturers around the world. From cutting edge concept cars, to exotic sports cars, to classic four-wheeled fashion, our Paris gallery takes you beyond the turnstiles and inside one of this year's most important auto shows.

It's hard to think of Paris without thinking of fashion, especially when Fashion Week has just stormed through the city. Auto shows are always good at highlighting the season's trendiest styles in aluminum, composites and leather, but the 2014 Mondial de l'Automobile takes it a step further by dedicating an entire hall to automotive fashion, an exhibit packed with more than 100 years' worth of noteworthy autos, special editions and concept cars.

Individual automakers are in on the act, showing limited edition cosmetic packages, stylish concept cars and the latest in eco-friendly design. Long story short, the show does its world fashion capital host city proud.

Proceed to our gallery and experience the style and flair of the 2014 Paris show for yourself.

I think your coverage of the show is really good. The photos are areally nice.
Patrick McGean
What the French did was usher in the compressed air revolution to transportation. Electric compressed air cars would not pollute anything. The era of the gasoline engine end now. Tesla has the electric car but why not dump the electric motor for motation and use the electricity to compress the air to make the car go. That is what the French have done and it may regenerate Detroit. Electric compressed air cars and trucks with no government intervention on exhaust, their is none. Screw the DOT, and get them out of our lives. Got sulfur?

Al lot of beautiful, fast and innovative cars. But I am wondering why there are so much real fast cars. Here in France for instance the maximum speed permitted is 130 km. What to do with such a fast car? Going more as 160kmh and your drivers license is gone. In Switzerland the confiscate even your car. The only country where you have parts (about 35 %) on the highway without speed limit is Germany. The governments tell us it is for our safety, the others tell us because for environmental reasons. Which is in both cases not true. Racing cars go over the top at 240 km and the driver is not hurt. Modern engines use at 160 km less fuel as cars from 40 years ago going 80 km. Is it not time for the governments to re-think. One, remove the speed limits on given highway areas, or forbid to produce cars which can go over the allowed speed limit. Or is it only to collect money from us?
