Canadian International AutoShow 2015

I went because I thought it was a spy convention, probably with a Kingsman, but no, CIAS is not a show about the Central Intelligence Agency. Instead it is a big, crowded Auto Mall with a splash of concept cars, a little bit of the classics and a touch of new product model launches.
Taking up the entire Metro Toronto Convention Centre from February 13 to 22, this show is so big that they even have a shuttle bus running between the north and south buildings. I would be tempted to forget about the bus and ask for a test ride in something fancy and if it was electric I could probably drive it inside and shave off a bit of the travel time.

Actually the place is big enough they should have set up a racing oval and let people really take a test spin. Speaking of racing, IndyCar Series driver James Hinchcliffe made an appearance at the show - along with one of his cars. James will return to town for the June 12-14, 2015 Honda Indy Toronto race.

Art and the Automobile and Auto Exotica are two of the many features that liven up this car buying extravaganza. "Auto Exotica: The Exotics are back at the AutoShow! Expect to be stunned by first-class vehicles crafted by McLaren, Tesla, Pagani, Ferrari, Maserati and much more! This is the only place in Canada where you can see this many exotic brands under one roof. You will have the luxury of experiencing the lifestyle behind the World’s Finest Automobiles at the 2015 Auto Exotica. Explore this feature on Level 100 in the North Building of the Metro Toronto Convention Centre."
I met up with brand ambassador Theresa Longo who was working with Ford Canada demonstrating their wearable technologies and ergonomic advancements.
