The 2017 Canadian International AutoShow
Aston Martin AM-RB 001
The International AutoShow is currently underway at the Toronto Convention Centre where major carmakers roll out their latest and greatest, from all-new models to redesigns of existing vehicles. This is the largest automotive event in Canada, spanning more than 650,000 square feet of production, concept, and exotic vehicle exhibit space.
Taking center stage at the 2017 International AutoShow are more than 1,000 new cars and light trucks – 41 of which are making their debut at this year's show. The 2017 theme is O Canada, marking Canada's 150th birthday. Coincidentally the first steam powered car was also introduced in Canada in the year of our Confederation. The automotive industry has certainly come a long way since then as the show celebrates all cars past, present and future.
Highlights include the North American reveal of the Aston Martin AM-RB 001, set to become the world’s most extreme hypercar (with a price tag of $3 million dollars.) Cars & Stars showcases cars from Talledaga Nights and Goldfinger; two of the many film featured vehicles at this year's show. You'll see the finest dream machines and elite cars in Auto Exotica as well as a retrospect of 50 years in Grand Prix Auto Racing in Canada. Don't miss the Art & The Automobile display which celebrates Canada's most important cars in context with Canadian historical landmark events over the past 150 years.
The show provides the total automotive experience along with some great family entertainment. Kids will enjoy incredible displays ranging from classic cars, to electric cars, prototypes and muscle machines. The younger crowd who hasn't quite developed an affinity for 'wheels' – can be dropped off at the Volkswagen Children’s Playcare Centre. Free professional daycare services are provided, filled with exciting activities such as arts and crafts, interactive play and more.
The AutoShow continues until Sunday, February 26. Purchase your tickets online to avoid line-ups. Admission is $23/Adults, $16/Youth, $7/Kids, or $45 for a Family Pass. Children 6 and under are Free. For more information, visit: www.autoshow.ca.
