Are you ready for more car pictures? Yes? Great! Not so much? Hmm. You might want to skip this post, then.
So after seeing the Pagani, I figured we reached the pinnacle of greatness at this show and the rest would just be gravy.
First up today, the Lamborghinis. A Gallardo Super Trofeo Stradale:
Then, the amazing Aventador, the Murciélago's replacement. It does 0 to 62 mph in 2.9 seconds. Yeah.
I found this video of the production oddly mesmerizing.
After the Auto Exotica room, we took a quick peek at the north building.
My favorites here were the ridiculous but fun Hot Wheels Camaro. Check out the paint job.
They had the tiny Hot Wheels version as well.
Pretty close, huh?
Right next to the green monster Camaro was the Corvette Stingray concept.
It reminds me of a movie but I can't put my finger on what movie.
Ooh I just loved the rear. Seriously, look at that. Crazy.
At this point we were running out of time (and my phone battery was dying), so we made our way to the Triumph exhibition. These are the ones that really caught my eye.
The 1935 Gloria Southern Cross
The 1948 Triumph Roadster complete with a Dickey Seat.
Such a beautiful color and the dash looked amazing.
A completely original 1974 TR6. It has had just two owners. There are only has 8521 miles on it. It is probably the lowest original mileage TR6. . .ahem, best Jeremy Clarkson voice. . .in the world.
I loved this cover and the badges on some of the cars.
A TR2 with globe hubcaps.
And, finally, a couple of lovely vintage racing cars.
There you have it, a few of my favorites from the 2012 Canadian International Auto Show. Even though I spent over 3 hours there, I didn't even scratch the surface of everything I could have seen.
Did you see anything you'd like to take for a spin?
