  1. For my money the absolute highlight of the show was in fact the Porsche Panamera Sport Turismo

    Why you might ask ?

    Because the McLaren and the Ferrari ( what little there was of it ) are just SSDD supercars without an ounce of innovation or new technology . The old F1 was ground breaking . The P1 is as stated ….. SSDD

    The Peugeot was Duracell pipe dream never to see the light of day

    Everything else was as predictable as rain in London

    Whereas the Porsche amazed me that with a few simple strokes of the designers pen they could take the Fugly yet Functional Panamera and turn it into one stunning Estate
