Yet another example of a great European/Japanese race car, who’s bade model is not available in North America. This Civic looks great, even under camouflage.
Winter needs to end asap. This video of VAG Event 2013 brings us back to the middle of show season. This is one of the best videos I’ve seen that captures the ambiance and atmosphere of a car show.
Early February means one thing for us…. we get to attend press day for the Canadian International Autoshow. We are privileged to be accredited media for the event. Roaming the show floor with only press minus the hustle and bustle of the general public is a totally different experience. We are allowed to take much better photos and get a more in depth and personal experience with most of the cars. We’re not in the market for a 6 figure luxury sedan anytime soon, but it’s nice pretending for a day.
The Mclaren P1 is hands down THE one car you need to see at the CIAS. It is the new bedroom poster king. Taking over from our F40, 959, Countach, and F1 posters. Pfaff also brought out their MP4-12C Spa-F and roadster to the super car hall. While the Heffner Turbo R8, Porsche 964 Turbo and Mercedes SLS Roadster were among their other display cars in their other display.
One would think racecars standing still are a sad sight. They unfortunately can`t be racing all of the time. Luckily they look just as fast standing still. Can`t get enough splitters, diffusers, wings, toe hooks, centre locks.
Road cars and concepts make up most of the show floor. The last few photos show off an awesome paint finish from Ferrari. Also great shades of blue from BMW and Subaru.

Many of the car show we’ve been to, the lot provides as much content as the main deal. The better the show the better the lot. The lot at the Tokyo Auto Salon should provide a few nice rides. Images are all provided by Tomochika Shibata.
The Kawashima Celica.
A stock Celica for comparison.
Loving the character of this R32.
Fender mirrors and a duckbill spoiler. A combo we never see in Toronto
Given this is Japan, this thing is probably static.
From the makers of this insane MK2 comes this humble Colt Hatchback. Only 978hp compared to the 1150 from the Golf.
This 964 is not an extensive build like their previous red one. But since its a Turbo and its on Fuchs, its such a better exanple of why 964s are internet darlings at the moment. Upgrades include Hybrid K27 turbo with a fuel enrichment controller, headers and BB muffler. K&N filter intake system and JIC suspension.
