For the second year, Mitsubishi Motors Corporation ("MMC") has been invited at the prestigious "Louis Vuitton Classic" Concours d’Elegance in Paris.
A highlight of Paris social season and a must for all enthusiasts, this event is the premier Concours in Europe. Over 70 of the most revered classics from all over the world and the latest concept cars will be displayed on the aristocratic surroundings of its new venue, the Domaine National de Saint-Cloud, overlooking Paris.
On September 6th and 7th, the Concours will then welcome Mitsubishi’s CZ2 Cabriolet concept car which was unveiled at the 2003 Geneva Auto Show. The brainchild of Mitsubishi Design Europe, its sharp elegance and tailored set of Mandarina Duck bags will fit perfectly this year´s theme: "The Art of Travelling".
Heir of MMC´s first show car – the 1962 Colt 600 Convertible, CZ2 Cabriolet is a proposal for a casual chic open top runabout. It is also the newest NCC* inspired concept, a line inaugurated in 2001 by Mitsubishi Motors with the acclaimed CZ2 hatchback and CZ3 Tarmac sports wagon and continued this year with Tarmac Spyder.
