How French can you get? This gorgeous Citroën CX with a Chapron landaulet conversion had pride of place on its maker's stand
The Porsche stand featured the 928-based 942 shooting brake, given to Ferry Porsche for his 75th birthday
Competition cars from all walks of motor racing sat alongside each other
Mercedes 300SLs were ten-a-penny at this year's show, although none were less appealing for it
Retired Formula One cars are always a big draw, and at Retromobile that was no different...
...and arguably the most interesting of the lot was this six-wheeled March, dating from 1976.
Fancy a bit of decor for your garage or workshop? Retromobile had that covered, too.
Showgoers thronged stands bursting with goodies in the automobilia hall; books, posters, models and even old press pictures were all for sale.
Probably the biggest draw of all, though, was the display of Group B cars set up on the glass walkway between two halls.
The display featured both well-known Group B cars, like this Peugeot 205 T16...
...as well as some that were a little more obscure, such as this Citroën BX 4TC.
But of course, no Group B display could be complete without the presence of an Audi Quattro!
This early BMW 635CSi showed it wasn't just vintage and racing cars that were on display...
...as did this fabulous Renault 9 Turbo, which was garnering plenty of attention.
Meanwhile, over on the Honda stand, an example of the company's most famous modern classic - the NSX.
And more Renault turbo goodness for you - this 5 Turbo looked as good as new.
With 550 exhibitors, including more than 100 car clubs, and a grand total of more than 500 cars on display, this year’s Retromobile classic car show in Paris promised to be bigger and better than ever – and it didn’t disappoint.
Highlights included racers of every era, exquisite vintage models with unequalled pedigree and, of course, more recent classics from manufacturers as diverse as Renault, Honda and Mercedes-Benz, all presented in immaculate condition. And if that wasn’t enough, one whole hall of Paris’s Expo Porte de Versailles centre was filled with stalls selling car parts and accessories, as well as books, models, posters, and other automobilia.
This year’s show came to an end on Sunday, but dates for next year’s event have already been announced – it’ll be held from 7-11 February 2018. As our gallery shows, it will be well worth a visit.
