The biggest releases from Day 1 of the 2016 Paris Motor ShowWe look at the latest cars from Volkswagen, Ferrari, Audi and Honda.
Today is Thursday September 29th and we are here at the glamorous Paris motor show. Let's see what's making news. Perhaps the biggest release of the day is Volkswagen's IQ. This nerdy named concept car is a battery electric vehicle capable of between 248 In 373 miles on a single charge. He rides the top [UNKNOWN] platform which will underpin future electrics as well. Even [UNKNOWN] the IQ will be coming to market in 2020 and will be positioned alongside the Golf. Honda's concepts are usually thinly veiled production models and its Civic Type-R Prototype is hopefully no exception. This bonkers hatch-back features doing large enough to serve dinner on. Aero-dynamic doodadery out the wazoo and t nasty flat black paint job. Expected to balance 2017 up to 2018 model. How this 292 horsepower RS3 is the fun little Sedan but what if it had 400 horsepower Then you have the all new Audi RS3 sedan. It'll hit 60 miles an hour in 4.1 seconds on its way to a top speed of 174 miles an hour. It's lower, wider and most importantly it's coming to the U.S. next year. Yipee! Do you want a La Ferrari but you can't be bothered to buy a coupe? Then the La Ferari [UNKNOWN] will be right up your alley. It's packing the same ridiculous hybrid drive train as the coupe, but with the open air enjoyment that can only come from removing a small section of its roof. If you want one, stop. They're already sold out. Finally, Audi's cash cow is heading to the farm once more. The 2018 Q5 builds on the success of the wagon-like Q7, with an all new look, an optional air suspension, and tweaks to its all-wheel drive System. The interior packs virtual cockpit and a big old touchpad for handwriting recognition. It goes on sale this spring. Find more on these stories over at theroadshow.com, we'll talk to you tomorrow. I need a drink. [BLANK_AUDIO]
