A lot of car people think that new cars are irredeemably ugly and will never look as good as the classics. We disagree. For proof, here are the most stunning photographs we've seen at the Paris Motor Show this year.

Even though the European economy is suffering and their car industry is only getting worse, carmakers are still penning amazing designs. The 2014 Volkswagen GTI is cleaner than it's been for years, the McLaren P1 takes road car aerodynamics to the next level, and Peugeot covered their carbon fiber supercar with copper for no reason other than it looked amazing.
