TROUBLED local carmaker Ford came out swinging at the Sydney motor show preview day, springing one of the few surprises by shipping in a sexy coupe concept car and flashing a teaser video for the freshened-up Falcon due in 2014.

The teaser gave away few clues about where the local sedan is going, but they were present in the Evos, a red fastback that points the way to future Ford designs.

"The Evos concept represents a huge visual and technological change that will be a showcase of many Ford vehicles going forward," Ford Australia chief executive Bob Graziano said. Features include a seat that monitors the driver's heart rate and an airconditioning system that gets the cabin right ahead of a trip.

The Evos got the preview day off on the right foot after show organisers had struggled to persuade many usual exhibitors to take space. About two dozen brands decided the outlay was not worthwhile, including drawcards such as Ferrari, Maserati, Aston Martin and Rolls-Royce.

However, one Aston Martin turned up after Australia's only owner of a One-77, the brand's $3m supercar, lent it to organisers just weeks after taking delivery. The silver coupe, with a 7.3-litre V12, is one of just 77 built.

Sportscars are a show theme, with Lamborghini shipping in its Sesto Elemento, a $2.7m carbon-fibre track special to be built for just 20 collectors worldwide.

More accessible but just as appealing was Jaguar's F-type, whisked to Sydney from its world debut in Paris two weeks ago.

The sexy roadster, which will compete with the Porsche Boxster when it arrives next year, inherits the reputation of Jaguar's landmark E-type from 50 years ago.

"There are a few areas where we were influenced by the E-type," designer Ian Callum said, "but we stuck to the rules about designing a Jaguar and the end result is the right car."

At the other end of the scale, a wave of new small cars will ignite competition in our most popular segment. Toyota launched its next Corolla with a line-up of all 10 of the previous generations and dancers choreographed to hits of the time. It will compete with a Skoda called Rapid from next year, also starting from $20,000, plus the return of the Nissan Pulsar, two other show debutants.

And Mercedes will cater for an increasing appetite for luxury among small car buyers with its new A-Class, which arrives in March priced from just $35,600.
