Well, for starters, there are three North American premieres (from Hyundai, Mitsubishi and MINI), 37 Canadian premieres and a dozen special presentations. Overall, nearly 500 cars and trucks are assembled across the various floors, giving future buyers a head start for their next vehicle purchase.
This year, the Electric Zone is bigger and occupies a full floor on Level 7. Visitors will discover more than 20 products and services exhibitors, daily conferences and some 20 electric car models. As usual, people can register for a free test drive courtesy of CAA-Quebec.
Following its success last year, the Black Box returns in 2020 with two of the most exotic sports cars on the planet: the McLaren Senna and Pagani Huayra Roadster. We’re talking about street-legal, track-oriented supercars generating more than 750 horsepower each. Their combined value amounts to $6 million.
Classic car lovers won’t want to miss the exhibition of eight mythical rides presented in collaboration with Vintage Automobiles of Quebec (VAQ). The list includes a 1912 Ford Model T, 1929 Ford Model A Phaeton, 1933 Buick McLaughlin Convertible, 1948 Chrysler Windsor, 1954 Cadillac Model 62 Convertible, 1966 Pontiac Parisienne, 1973 Plymouth Cuda and 1987 Chevrolet Monte Carlo SS.
