Paris has been through the wars re­cently, and I’d en­cour­age tourists into the city by com­pletely lift­ing the ban on all for­eign cars, re­gard­less of age.

JAMES SADLIER MAN­AG­ING EDI­TOR

DeLorean DMC-12s ob­vi­ously! They’re too few in num­ber to trou­ble the city’s pol­lu­tion cam­paign­ers, and you can get an elec­tric ver­sion too!

GER­VAIS SEY­MOUR PRO­DUC­TION EDI­TOR

My own car, ob­vi­ously. And prob­a­bly those of close friends and fam­ily. There’d be no point in be­ing Mayor of Paris if you couldn’t take a lit­tle avan­tage.

CALUM BROWN AS­SO­CIATE EDI­TOR

Un­less they want to be in­vaded again, they should just drop this ridicu­lous ban. My 1995 Saab pol­lutes just as much as a 1998 vari­ant, so what’s the point?

MUR­RAY SCUL­LION NEWS EDI­TOR

Any­thing made by Alpine should be waved through the check­points. Ban­ning an A110 just wouldn’t be French, some­how. I’d like to see and hear a lone TVR per­mit­ted to roam the Parisian streets, re­mind­ing all these zero emis­sions cam­paign­ers what proper cars sound like.

RICHARD BAR­NETT MAR­KETS EDI­TOR

A Citroën DS or CX, nat­u­rally. Such dis­tinctly French de­signs are just in­tended to have the Eif­fel Tower lurk­ing in the back­ground.

LEISE EN­RIGHT OF­FICE MAN­AGER

As long as my Mini’s al­lowed into Paris for shop­ping trips to stock up on Chanel per­fume, I’ve no qualms with the French!
