    CARS FROM 19 COUNTRIES SPORTED THEIR SHINNING NEW BONNETS TODAY (THURSDAY) AT THE OPENING OF PARIS'S 54TH MOTOR SHOW.

    FOR THE FIRST TIME IN THE EUROPEAN MARKET, THE JAPANESE ARE PRESENTING A MAJOR CHALLENGE. ONLY THREE JAPANESE MANUFACTURERS ARE EXHIBITING, BUT THEY HAVE CAUGHT THE FANCY OF MANY OF THE PUBLIC. THE TOYOTA COROLLA 1100, IS A STANDARD MODEL, 2 DOORS, SEATING FOR 5, BUT WITH THE NEW HONDA N-600, IT COULD PROVE AN ATTRACTIVE RIVAL FOR BRITAIN'S POPULAR MINIS.

    THE DUTCH DAF IF THE AUTOMATIC TO END ALL AUTOMATICS. THIS LATEST MODEL, THE '33', JOINS THE '44', AND REPLACES THE DAFFODIL.

    THE RENAULT R-4, A DE LUXE MODEL, IS FITTED OUT WITH A SEALED LIQUID COOLING SYSTEM, A 1,108 cc ENGINE, REAR MOUNTED, DISC BRAKERS, AND A TOP SPEED OF 84 MPH. ITS SISTER, THE R-16, HAS SIMILAR INSIDES, BUT CARRIES SIX, AND ITS TOP SPEED IS 90 MPH.

    RUSSIA IS SHOWING CARS BY TWO FIRMS, INCLUDING THE MOSKVITCH 1300.

    AND BRITAIN'S SVELT TRIUMPH ARE SHOWING THEIR TR/5 SPORTS - A TWO-SEATER CONVERTIBLE, FUEL INJECTION ENGINE, FRONT DISC BRAKERS, WATER COOLING, TWO CARBURETTORS, AND WITH A TOP SPEED OF 125 MPH WAY ABOVE BRITAIN'S SPEED LIMIT OF 70.

    THE ITALIAN FIRM OF LAMBORGHINI, ONE OF 11 ITALIAN MANUFACTURERS AT THE SHOW, HAS FOLLOWED THE TREND TOWARDS SAFETY - IT INTRODUCES A REVOLUTIONARY STABILISATION DEVICE IN THE REAR OF THE CAR. OTHER REVOLUTIONS ARE THE REVOLVING-PISTON WANKEL ENGINE, NOW FITTED FOR THE FIRST TIME TO THE WEST GERMAN NSU RO-80, AND BRITAIN'S JENSEN 'INTERCEPTOR' - GOLD-PLATED FOR THOSE WHO OBJECT TO THE SUNDAY RITUAL OF POLISHING THE CAR.
