Paris Concepts Unveiled !

The curtains over Concepts were finally raised. After a series of teasers and speculations, the auto makers, finally, revealed their concepts. Every concept is unique in its own way! ...let us have a look :

Lamborghini Estoque Concept

Following a tantalizing series of teaser images, the Lamborghini Estoque four door concept is finally revealed.

Measuring 5.15 meters long, the unique Estoque, carries a front end in familiar Lamborghini style with gaping diamond shaped air intake scoops linked by a lower spoiler. Under the hood we are likely to find the 560 hp V10 from the Gallardo LP 560-4, and of course with all-wheel-drive.

Nissan Nuvu Concept

The new Nissan Nuvu Concept is a model that would nicely fit into the coming future. The curvaceous body profile, smooth design lines and futuristic interior back up this theory. But back in reality, we are actually looking at a preview of the next generation Nissan Micra.

The mini car is just 3 meters long but the interior has been designed to provide customer the 2+1 layout. Power for the concept comes from a zero emissions Electric drivetrain. This electric motor is mounted on the rear of the vehicle with all of it power output directed to the back wheels. A driving range of 125km and a top speed of 120km/h is speculated.


Citreon GT Concept

After the 6 part series of teaser images, excitement for this concept was starting to wane. However, Citroen have finally pulled off the red sheet on the GT Concept, and we are happy to say that our enthusiasm has been restored.

Measuring 4.960m in length, 2.080m in width and 1.090m in height, the GT Concept is a substantial size. Enhancing its overall presence are the foreboding wheel arches with diamond-effect 21-inch aluminium wheels tucked under, and exaggerated rear end, which Citroen admits is oversized.

Renault Mégane Trophy Concept

After relaesing the Megane Coupe debut earlier today, Renault inflicts the incapacitating sleeper hold by releasing the single-make race series Mégane Trophy version in Paris today.
