The summer lull is well and truly over, it seems - with the Paris motor show just around the corner, new metal has been appearing by the day during the past week.
Some, however, was gloriously free of reality: Renault’s four-seater Nepta cabrio is not likely to be in showrooms anytime soon; nor is French rival Citroen’s C-Métisse. Elements of both could find their way into production, though.
Our spy photographers brought you Aston’s next car, a development of the DBS used in Bond film Casino Royale that looks likely to be called DBRS9 and video of Rolls’ Corniche convertible undergoing hot weather testing.
The new-car fever should build further in the next week. Watch out for exclusive spy video footage of one of 2007’s trendiest cars, and our drive of Mercedes’ technological flagship, the CL. And on Thursday morning, we get our first glimpse of the production-ready Honda Civic Type-R. Don’t miss it.
