It's the oldest motor show in the world, having first launched as a combined event for cycling, sports, and the exciting new world of automobiles.
No surprise, then, that the biennial Paris motor show - "Mondial de l'Automobile" in the French - is also one of the biggest on the international calendar and a focus point for the most extravagant concepts and new-model unveilings.
In 2014, the show attracted 1.25 million visitors, bettering the 931,700 that passed through the turnstiles of the likewise biennial Frankfurt motor show earlier this year.
Now, back on the calendar after a year off, October's 2016 Paris motor show is already promising some significant premieres and previews of the year ahead.
