Canadian International Autoshow 2012

Photos - Google+

For the first time ever for me....all cellphone photos....:P

Got lazy and didn't bring the DSLR home with me...

I haven't gone to this show in a while, this year's show seems pretty good. Went on Saturday which is the 2nd day of the public day, most brands have cars unlocked and you can sit around and play with the interior bits. I think Audi had every car on their stand open, including an R8. By contrast Ford had Focus ST locked, which is a bit annoying...The exotic selection was good, with MP4-12C, One-77, Veyron and Avantador being the highlight...Somehow I think I missed Porsche's stand? Though I did see a 991 in one of the display...

Considering they were taken with a cellphone those photos look pretty damn good. I wish the Miami Auto Show was half as good, I'll go this year (after a couple of years of not going) if they bring the NSX.

Those are some good cellphone pics.

Seems like a good show.

The NYIAS is only so-so- Ferrari is never there.

Nice pics and some pretty awesome cars there too. Did you get to sit in the R8?

Which phone did you use to take the pictures, if I mind asking?

Still undecided about the new Indy car, a part of me says it's pretty ugly but another part kinda likes how the fender hugs the back wheels

I worked the show hawking gear for Mercedes and Smart, so I got to see a lot. On the last day, me and a coworker waited around and saw the LFA leave, and got up close with some of the cars in the exotic section and took some pics. We also saw the One-77 being pushed into a Multimatic trailer. Sadly, we did not hear the Veyron or Zonda R fired up.

RM, you forgot to note the Zonda R! I was also stunned to see a 300SL, Yenko Camaro, and 1966 Cobra there. I think these cars were mostly passed over by the general public as they were sitting in a room with new Ferraris, the Veryon, Bentleys, Loti, et al.

TBH I passed them too, mostly because the amount of American muscle I see over the summer here....

Zonda R was cool, but it deserved a better display....
