Among the concept's most notable features is a cabin with three interchangeable interior design configurations -- 'Mâle,' 'Fatale Punk' and 'Parisienne Chic' -- each with its own personality. The Divine DS was created in collaboration with the prestigious Parisian workshop Maison Lesage for the embroidery and with Swarovski for the crystal decorations.

Meanwhile, the Italian body shop Zagato presented an exceptional one-off car, the Aston Martin Virage Shooting Brake. The model completes the trilogy initiated by the brand in 2013 to celebrate its 100th anniversary, which also includes the DB9 Spider Zagato Centennial and the DBS Coupe Zagato Centennial.

Finally, McLaren took advantage of the event to stage the European premiere of the P1 GTR, the latest version of its track-focused supercar packing around 1000hp. The model made its first public appearance in August at the Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance (US).
