In 1898 the Jardin des Tuileries welcomed the first international exhibition dedicated to the most important automobile makes of the time. Not everyone can exhibit: in order to do so, vehicles must first undergo a journey from Paris to Versailles and back. A 40 km drive to prove that they are real automobiles, able to move by their own means!
Three years later, the Show moved to the Grand Palais… for 60 years! Two World Wars did not defeat the event which reached one million visitors in 1954. And yet leaving the French capital was never an option, as it was so closely linked to the Show. In 1962, it moved to the Porte de Versailles, for good.
