Another British supercar that grabbed the attention of the audience at 2012 Paris Motor Show was Bentley Continental GT3 Concept. The racer will be eligible to race in a range of race series and marathons. Bentley stripped over 1,000 kg of weight from their Continental GT road car to make the GT3 a competitive.

One of the eye-catchers in Paris was the new sports car Jaguar F-Type. It is available with V8 engine generating (495hp and 625Nm of torque) and a V6 powerplant which is offered as standard and as an S edition. One of the most attractive facts is the affordable price of the Jaguar F-Type – at about 60,000 GBP.
