Toronto's premier distributor of premium vehicles to display the latest from Aston Martin, Bentley, Lamborghini and Rolls-Royce
TORONTO, Feb. 11, 2014 /CNW/ - Grand Touring Automobiles (GTA) of Toronto is pleased to announce the presentation of several ultra-exclusive vehicles at their all-new display, at the 2014 Canadian International Auto Show (CIAS).
Three of these vehicles hail from the company's flagship showroom at 740 Dupont Street in Toronto; while another pair celebrate the opening last summer of Lamborghini Uptown Toronto - a brand new GTA dealership located at 101 Auto Vaughan Drive, in Maple, Ontario.
As the official dealer partner of Aston Martin, Bentley, Bugatti, Jaguar, Land Rover, Rolls-Royce and now, Lamborghini, GTA is proud to be able to showcase some of the latest offerings from these exclusive brands.
The 2014 Aston Martin Vanquish Volante has been called one of the most beautiful vehicles on the road today and is a world-class GT car in every sense of the word. Under the car's sculpted hood, the 6.0-litre V12 generates 585 horsepower, 457 lb-ft of torque and a top speed of 295 km/h - it's fast and it's fabulous.
The latest-generation Bentley Continental Flying Spur, introduced to the world last year, represents a significant step up from the previous iteration, in terms of style and performance. This elegant sedan features a 6.0-litre W12 engine (616 hp; 590 lb-ft) and no end of desirable amenities.
The 2014 Rolls-Royce Wraith has been called one of the most unique cars in the world, and for good reason. With its 6.6-litre V12 engine (624 hp; 590 lb-ft), the Wraith is the fastest Rolls-Royce in the 110-year history of the brand. This car also boasts a fastback silhouette that is completely unique and simply stunning. With the optional two-tone paint scheme and Canadel inner door panels, the car creates an illusion of traveling at speed even when parked.
The final super-car on display in the GTA booth is, arguably, the most eye-catching of them all - the 2014 Lamborghini Aventador LP 700-4.
"We're thrilled to be able to bring these very special cars to the Canadian International Auto Show," says Shawn Morris, Vice-President of Operations for Grand Touring Automobiles. "We're proud of all our brands and we're especially proud to be representing Lamborghini at the show for the first time."
Armed with 700 horsepower, all-wheel drive and a top speed of 350 km/h, the Aventador is one of the fastest and most audacious cars on the planet, period. Also on display is a 2013 Lamborghini Gallardo Super Trofeo racecar, which is presented in partnership with the Toronto Star.
"Our Gallardo was on the podium numerous times in the Super Trofeo competition last year and is certain to seize greatness as the series evolves this year," Morris adds. "And if any car deserves the supersports designation, it's the Aventador - it's everything that the Lamborghini brand stands for."
All of these exotics will be on display in the GTA booth, which is located on the 100 level of the North Building of the Metro Toronto Convention Centre. This year's Canadian International Auto Show runs from February 14th to the 23rd.
