It only affects new cars ordered since 5 December 07. It doesn't affect any second hand car bought where you only pay the normal Carte Grise fees.

More here (see the section on CO2): Buying & Selling a Car in France: Carte Grise Vehicle Registration

Just to clarify...if I have a 2nd hand car from 2008 I only have to pay the cost of the Carte Grise? Or do I have to pay the 'old' CO2 tax as well?

Only new cars; government places a 'green' tax on higher-polluting vehicles, reduced taxes on economy/green cars.
