Huge thanks once again to Mercedes-Benz Canada for helping me get tickets to VIP night.
While the selection was not quite as big as past shows, it was still a great experience with some real standouts.
Keeping with tradition, I was the first in line at the exotics display.
What a treat for Pfaff to bring in a McLaren F1 GTR for display…one of these recently sold for $14 million!
Some clever photo trickery here…as I am not really touching the car in this pic
Though I might be in this one
Sticking with British cars…both Bentley and Rolls Royce had new droptops on display
Though I prefer the Wraith coupe
Including this awesome F-type RS AWD!
Now on to Italian cars…only next to a car such as the McLaren F1 GTR can the Pagani Huayra be
considered cheap in comparison!
Only a few from Ferrari this year….ooops, forgot to get a pic of the 488
Moving on to North American cars…love the Hellcats, including the Charger, one of my favourite cars of the show!
Dodge Viper ACR..absolutely incredible
Corvette Z07..love the spoiler and quad exhaust
Ford Focus RS
Ford Mustang Cobra Jet
Now on to Japanese cars…
GT-R Nismo…another one of my favourites
New Acura NSX
Subaru Impreza WRX STI..always had a soft spot for these. The new blue looks like the one BMW had on their M3 last year..i like it but I would stick with the classic Subaru blue
Honda Pioneer offroader
Last but certainly not least, my favourite, German cars!
Porsche..awesome racers on display
Singer, handmade replicas of old style 911s
The new C63 coupe looks HOT, especially in Edition 1 form
And in sedan form
AMG GT…I drove one of these on a racetrack and it was quite spectacular
AMG S63 coupe..i drove one of these in a parking lot lol…not my style
AMG GLE and GLA
BMW…some M-class cars
Audi R8 and racer
Self-driving and human driving RS7s
New S8..in almost exactly the same matte grey as my car
Vintage cars…my father had two Studebakers like this!
I like the Avanti version
Deadmau5’s P1 and Purracan
A small sampling of some of the crazy free food
Some show pics
So just to recap, my favourites were:
F1 GTR, Charger Hellcat, C63S Edition 1, C63S sedan, GT-R Nismo, Viper ACR, Corvette Z07, M6 Gran Coupe and XF-RS AWD…the Gwagen would have made the list if it was the AMG version lol
Thank you once again to Mercedes and above all to my companion…not only one of the most beautiful women in the world, but also one of the funniest…and the most patient! And a great photographer too! Thanks for making the experience so much better!
