Bentley, Lamborghini Drops Out of 2016 Paris Motor Show

Two well-known luxury automakers will not attend the 2016 Paris Motor Show.

The Volkswagen Group is continuing to cut costs amid its massive diesel scandal and as a result, Bentley and Lamborghini will not be on display in Paris later this month. Bentley said it will be skipping the show to focus on small events where it can market directly to buyers, while Lamborghini said it is revising its auto show strategy and is taking a closer look at which locations it wants to be on display.
