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
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.
