Lotus's five-car mass-unveiling by various Hollywood A-listers may have grabbed the headlines at the Paris motor show last week, but which cars got the What Car? staffers excited?


What Car?'s stars of the Paris motor show
Who likes what - find out here.



Steve Fowler, editor-in-chief
Star car: Renault Twizy.
Why? For the fresh thinking designers can apply to electric vehicles – and because it will cost £5000.


Iain Reid, producer whatcar.com
Star car: Renault Zoe
Why? The Renault DeZir was an obvious concept car – exclusive sportscar, all angles and gull-wing doors – but the Zoe is more grounded in reality. It's a cute-looking concept car that will lead to a cute, affordable, electric supermini for the masses.


Peter Lawton, deputy editor, whatcar.com
Star car: Skoda Octavia Green E Line
Why? The entire stand was designed to show where we could get our energy from and how you could use it.


Roger Stansfield, associate editor
Star car: Jaguar C-X75
Why? It's great to see that the company is now strong enough to do something as outlandish and technically interesting as this. It's not entirely beyond the bounds of possibility, either, that something reasonably close to it could be put into production.


Matt Sanger, used car editor
Star car: Jaguar C-X75
Why? It was a genuine surprise, with interesting and innovative technology. It has a fresh and distinctive design, too.


Will Nightingale, consumer reporter
Star car: Audi Quattro
Why? It looks brilliant, especially from the back. Audi hasn’t gone all retro, it has produced something really modern, but based it on the original.
