Top 10 Cars of the 2012 Paris Motor Show

2. Peugeot Onyx Concept

Easily one of the most eye-catching vehicles to debut at the Paris Motor Show, French automaker Peugeot represented its country well with the Onyx Concept.

A wild diesel-hybrid supercar, the Onyx is powered by a 3.7-liter diesel V8 making 600-hp. Adding to the total power output is a kinetic energy recovery system, storing power under braking and then using it to motivate the car, adding an extra 80-hp.

Styled to match its performance, leave it to the French to add unique touch, like the matte-black paint and chrome gold detailing that’s actually not paint or even a wrap job but genuine copper paneling.
