The Canadian International Auto Show until Feb. 21/2016 in Toronto… Check out the Volkswagen concept car… man I want one…
Volkswagen’s reputation has taken a beating amid the emissions-cheating scandal, but this GTI Roadster concept helps provide a distraction. It originated as a computer-generated vehicle for the Sony Play Station Gran Turismo 6 game before Volkswagen decided to make one in metal.
Or a mighty GMC…
Or a Viper would be a nice toy…
The Dodge Viper ACR is street legal, but essentially a race car, with a 645-horsepower V-10 engine and elaborate aerodynamics that produce nearly a tonne of downforce at top speed.
And even something classis like this 1935 Chrysler…
Advertising for the ages
In the show’s Art and the Automobile section, cars from the past are exhibited next to the advertising that was used to promote them, ranging from a 1904 Oldsmobile to a 1963 Studebaker Avanti. Seen here is a 1935 Chrysler.
And Exotic for the adventure in us all…
This McLaren P1 belongs to electronic musician Deadmau5, and is parked next to his customized Lamborghini Huracan.
The show’s Auto Exotica section includes a Pagani Huayra with a 730-horsepower AMG twin-turbo V12. It’s parked, very carefully, next to a racing version of the McLaren F1 road car. The last time one of these was sold at auction it went for a reported $13.75 million US.
Hope that I can make some time to make it to the show…. Sweet!
