Toronto's premier distributor of premium automobiles to display
multi-million-dollar Aston Martin One-77 and Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Grand
Sport at Canadian International Auto Show, expands dealer network with
four new locations
TORONTO, Feb. 14, 2012 /CNW/ - In the lead-up to the 39th Canadian
International Auto Show (CIAS) opening this week, Grand Touring
Automobiles (GTA) of Toronto is pleased to announce a pair of
ultra-exclusive national debuts and exciting expansion news for its
suite of discerning automotive customers.
GTA is the official dealer partner of Aston Martin Lagonda and Bugatti
Automobiles and will display both of their top models on the show floor
during the CIAS.
The Aston Martin One-77 is the famed British sports car company's
ultimate supercar. Capable of producing 750 horsepower, it is built
around a full carbon-fibre monocoque produced in conjunction with the
automotive specialists and Multimatic (MTC) of Canada. Though the
One-77 will not be sold in our market, the special pre-production car
on display with some 22,500 kilometres will highlight the extensive
development carried out on the project.
The Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Grand Sport is simply put, the planet's fastest
and most luxurious open-top car. Priced at $2.1 million dollar (US),
only 150 examples will be hand-built, wearing a removable glass roof
and powered by the most powerful engine in a production vehicle
available in Canada. The 16-cylinders, quad-turbocharged powerplant
makes 1,001 horsepower and can accelerate the Grand Sport from 0-100
km/h in just 2.7 seconds and achieve 407 km/h.
Grand Touring Automobiles is also pleased to officially announce an
expansion into four new locations, a first in the company's storied
history. Joining the distinguished flagship showroom in downtown
Toronto are: a new super-luxury showroom in Maple to better service
Aston Martin, Bentley, Bugatti and Rolls-Royce clients in Northwest
Toronto; two Volvo stores - Volvo of Toronto and Robert Motors in
Etobicoke; and, one of the Greater Toronto Area's most successful
Jaguar dealerships, Robert Jaguar.
"We could not be more excited about these announcements," said Paul
Cummings, Chairman and CEO of Grand Touring Automobiles. "Not only are
we affording Canadians the rare opportunity to see the Aston Martin
One-77 and Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Grand Sport, two of the world's most
exotic automobiles in the sheetmetal, our new stores will allow us to
reach out and supports customers like we never have before. GTA's
future looks bright."
