The Best of Luxury Revealed

Toronto's premier distributor of premium automobiles showcases multi-million-dollar automotive showcase at one-of-a-kind event.

TORONTO, May 17, 2013 /CNW/ - Last Thursday, the country's premier retailer of fine automobiles hosted a Best of Luxury event at Artscape Wychwood Barns, the vibrant creative space in Toronto. This by invitation-only event showcased 19 luxury and super-luxury models, many of them appearing in Canada for the very first time.

Designed to recognize customers and celebrate an exciting future for the storied luxury retailer, the evening included locally-prepared cuisine, fine champagne, exquisite wines and a tasting of the world's best scotches paired with a collection of the finest cigars.

Of course, the evening also afforded guests the chance to get up close and personal with some of the most desirable cars in the world.

The Aston Martin stand included the all-new 2014 Vanquish, hailed as one of the best GT cars around, as well as the revised 2014 DB9 Volante, 2013 Vantage S Coupe and the all-new 2014 Rapide S - one of the most beautiful, 4-door sports cars on the planet.

The prestige brands from the VW Group also made their presence felt. On display were the 2013 Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Grand Sport Vitesse, which recently set a world record as the world's fastest convertible, a 2013 Lamborghini Gallardo Spyder, and four models from the Bentley fleet.

The Bentley contingent comprised a 2013 Mulsanne, a 2013 Continental GTC V8, a 2013 Continental GT Speed Le Mans Edition - making its Canadian premiere, and a virtual presentation of the all-new 2014 Continental Flying Spur.

The Jaguar/Land Rover contingent countered with a range of desirable models of their own. On the Jaguar side of the ledger, the models on display were the new 2013 XJL 3.0L AWD, 2013 XF 3.0L AWD, the all-new 2014 XFR-S, and one of the absolute stars of the event, the all-new 2014 F-Type, which is already receiving fantastic reviews.

The Land Rover stand showcased the 2013 Evoque, 2013 LR4, 2013 Sport and the all-new Range Rover offerings, the 2014 Range Rover Supercharged, and a virtual reveal of the all-new 2014 Range Rover Sport.

Not to be outdone, the Rolls-Royce display featured the 2013 Phantom Drophead Coupe Series II, a two-tone 2013 Ghost that had never been seen before in Canada, and a virtual reveal of the all-new 2014 Wraith, a stunning addition to the storied line-up.

Each of these luxury models is available from the Grand Touring Automobiles location at 740 Dupont Street in Toronto and the new showroom in Maple, Ontario - which opened in 2012 to better serve Aston Martin and Lamborghini clients in northwest Toronto.

By the end of the evening, everyone gathered together agreed that it had been a very special occasion spent in the company of some very special automobiles, and a fantastic way to kick-off the summer driving season.
