2012 Beijing Motor Show in pictures
Latest pictures live from the show, from big debuts to China's craziest creations
When the Beijing Motor Show was first held 22 years ago, there were 2,016 cars on display. This year 1,125 new models were spread across 230,000 square metres of show floor, with 36 foreign-built cars and 84 Chinese-built models making their world debut. Beijing is now an enormously important date on the global motoring calendar.
Our gallery gives you a glimpse at the models that matter for buyers in the UK - such as the gorgeous BMW i8 Spyder and Lamborghini Urus SUV - as well as some of the more obscure cars on display from domestic manufacturers.
