Back in the driver’s seat

The 2017 Canadian Autoshow is less than two weeks away and after a year away from the automotive scene, I’m excited to be back at the show.

There are 41 vehicles making their Canadian premiere a the 2017 Canadian International AutoShow including the Aston Martin-Red Bull concept car AM-RB 001. If the debut is anything like the Acura NSX reveal, it’s going to be a wild show.

The Aston Martin-Red Bull concept hypercar AM-RB 001 will make its first appearance in North America – and global auto show debut. Codenamed AM-RB 001, the hypercar boast lightweight carbon fibre frame. Powering the hypercar is a mid-mounted naturally aspirated V12 engine.

Among other vehicles to be launched and closer to reality than at Aston-Martin include the all-new 2018 Chevrolet Traverse, 2018 Chevrolet Equniox Diesel, Ford Mustang, Ford F-150, next generation 2018 Honda Odyssey and all-new Mazda CX-5.

The 2017 Canadian International Autoshow runs February 17 to 26 at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre.

The Canadian International AutoShow is not only the largest automotive expo in Canada, it is also the country’s largest consumer show — a leader in lifestyle, technology and all things automotive. Boasting more than 1,000 cars, trucks, SUVs, concept cars, exotics, classics, muscle cars, fully electric and autonomous vehicles, the 2017 AutoShow is helping celebrate Canada’s 150th birthday by showcasing Canadian collectors in each feature of the show.
