2012 Paris Auto Show

Jaguar unveiled a new roadster to take on the Porsche Boxster, Volkswagen introduced a new version of the best-selling car in Europe, and Land Rover showed off a svelte new Range Rover that's shed almost 1,000 pounds. All in a day's work at the 2012 Paris Auto Show. And while McLaren and Peugeot were kind enough to supply the jaw-droppers, that's not to say the new all-electric version of the Mercedes-Benz SLS was anything short of stunning. Now, see the show.
