The Paris Motor Show ( French : Mondial de l'Automobile) is a biennial Auto Show in Paris. Held in the fall, it is one of the most important auto shows, often with many new production automobile and concept car debuts. The show was the first motor show in the world, started in 1898 by industry pioneer, Albert de Dion. The show takes place in Paris Expo in Porte de Versailles. The Mondial is scheduled by the Organisation Internationale des Constructeurs d'Automobiles , which considers it a major international auto show.

Until 1986  it was called Salon de l'Auto. It took the name Mondial de l'Automobile in 1988 . 

The 2008 Paris Show will take place from 4 October to 19 October 2008, in Paris Expo , Porte de Versailles .

Attracting almost 1.5m visitors, and featuring 500 brands from 30 countries, the Paris Motor Show remains the most popular automobile show in the western world. This must-see event is not just for car manufacturers and the entire automobile industry, but for all car enthusiasts too. Much more than just shows and concept cars on the stands, expect to also see “The incredible collection”, a special exhibition of the major works of the French museums and private collections; a 4WD initiation track, a karting track; accompanied driving track for young drivers (16-18), a “Rallye Jeunes” track (for 18-25); and a 360 degree virtual driver tournament, as well as car trials in urban circuits (proposed by the car makers).
