Two exotic car collections will be displayed during the event.
One of the stands will be allocated to Automobiles Etcetera, a high-end dealership.
Highlights include a Bugatti Chiron, a Ferrari 250 GT Lusso, and a Porsche Singer DLS.
Faced with declining attendance and fewer participating automakers, car shows are trying hard to attract the public.
This is also true of the Montreal Auto Show, back in 2023 after a two-year hiatus mandated by the pandemic.
To compensate for the reduced size of the event, which now fits into one floor of the Palais des Congrès instead of three, the show’s organizers have put together the largest display of exotic cars in its history.
Indeed, over twenty exotic and classic cars will be shown on two stands of the show. One of the stands will be dedicated to Luc Poirier’s collection, and the other will be occupied by Automobiles Etcetera, a high-end dealership in Montreal.
Here’s what you will see at this second stand:
The Bugatti Chiron is the current “regular” model from Bugatti, but it is anything but ordinary. Power comes from a quad-turbo V16 engine and its production is limited to 500 units for the whole world, each of which costs at minimum close to $4 million.
Ferrari SF90 Stradale
The SF90 Stradale is Ferrari’s first plug-in hybrid supercar. Powered by a twin-turbocharged V8 engine and three electric motors making a total of 986 horsepower and 590 lb-ft of torque, the SF90 can accelerate to 100 km/h in just 2,5 seconds in exchange for a starting price of $599,341.
Ferrari Monza SP2
The Ferrari Monza SP2 is a two-seat roadster that was part of the brand’s Icona series of special cars inspired by past models. Introduced for the 2019 model year, all units have now been sold despite their price of about 1,75 million American dollars.
Ferrari 250 GT Lusso
The Ferrari 250 GT Lusso is widely considered to be one the most elegant cars the brand ever made and its popularity with collectors has made its value climb to around 1,6 million USD. This green Lusso is one of the 351 made during an 18-month period that started in 1962.
The MC20 is Maserati’s latest supercar which benefits from a mid-mounted 621 horsepower twin-turbocharged Nettuno V6 that uses F1 technology to make more power per liter than any other supercar engine currently on the market.
Porsche 918 Spyder
Fittingly, Porsche made only 918 units of the 918 Spyder between 2013 and 2015. This plug-in hybrid supercar remains its last halo model to date and also its most powerful model ever, with up to 887 horsepower from a naturally aspirated V8 engine and two electric motors.
Porsche Singer/Williams DLS coupe
Singer is a company that makes its business restoring and reimagining Porsche 911s from the 80s, such as this pink version nicknamed “The mistress”. Part of the Dynamics & Lightweight Study, this 911 has been thoroughly modernized both in terms of style and mechanicals.
Rolls Royce Phantom Coupe “Nighthawk Edition”
The Rolls Royce Phantom Coupe has been out of production for over six years now, but this doesn’t mean this nighthawk edition, entirely painted black, is less impressive in 2023.
