Despite bad weather earlier in the day and competition from other car events going on today, the 2013 Yorkville Exotic car show was still an awesome show!
I arrived a bit later this year as i waited for it to stop raining. The crowd was already starting to form..
but sadly no red carpet this year (due to the rain).
I sponsored a car this year (the money goes to curing Prostate Cancer) and as luck would have it, it was parked right near the entrance. A 1987 Mercedes 190E 2.3 16, like the one Senna drove to DTM victory…this is way back from the year i got my driver’s licence and still one of my all time favourites. And also explains why i drive an AMG today lol.
Not too many other Mercedes this year…just a silver SLR coupe (vs. the black SLR convertible last year).
Next, some British cars…LOTS of Lotus this year…
YB XXL? well i am XXXL so i guess i would not fit in this lotus
red Bentley GTC..why does Drake’s “started from the bottom” video come to mind?
I have seen the McLaren drop-top before but not with the roof in place..it looks stunning!
I was really looking forward to seeing the Aston Martin Lagonda 4 door in person…i hate to say anything negative but i have to admit it, ummm, looks better in pictures than it does in person (let’s say)
More old school and new school Aston Martins
My favourite car last year…may keep its crown lol..Ruf 911
Although the new 911 GT3 RS 4.0 is probably a better performer, i think i’d still rather have the Ruf
Lots of Porsches
Another of my all time favourites, the original M3
and a newer variant
To think i almost bought a 1M lol
Vossen! (I love saying that word out loud)
an older BMW
On to the Italians…Lambo keeping out of the rain
I did not see the BB512 that was supposed to be there…maybe he could not make it…luckily a few Testarossas did
Good mix of Ferraris
Now for some American muscle..woah, check out the size of that engine! lol
Not too many Japanese cars on display
Perfect car for clearing a path through Toronto traffic
As a sponsor, i got to hang out in the paddock..but first, a red carpet photo op!
The view from the paddock
Once again, an awesome show…see you next year!
