During the Festival Automobile International’s Grand Prix award ceremony that took place on Tuesday 29 January 2019 in Paris, the Peugeot 508 was elected the Most beautiful car of the year 2018 by online voters. The French saloon takes over from the Alpine A110, elected last year.

After six weeks of voting, the Peugeot 508 registered a total 34.23% of votes, compared to 28.78% for the new A-Class Mercedes, 18.68% for the new Range Rover Evoque and 18.31% for the DS3 Crossback. It is the festival’s only prize awarded by the general public.

The festival’s Grand Prix ceremony also rewarded the most outstanding automobile and artistic projects of the year, designated by a jury chaired by Jean-Michel Wilmotte and assisted by designer Chantal Thomass. A “Gold Palm” was also awarded to Dieter Zetsche, CEO of Daimler.
 
Up until 3 February 2019, the general public can admire the traditional “Concept Car & Design Automobile” exhibition that takes place at the foot of the Invalides in a bespoke 3,000m² venue. Some twenty French and international cars, prototypes and supercars are expected to be on display.
