Here are the Supercars Present at the 2024 Canadian International AutoShow

There is plenty to see for supercar lovers at the Canadian international AutoShow in Toronto.

  • Many exclusive models from various automakers are being showcased in Toronto.

  • A few of the Supercars on display are powered by hybrid or fully electric drivetrains.

  • Highlights include the Rimac Nevera, the Bugatti Chiron Pur Sport, and the Pinninfarina Battista.

There is no shortage of exotics and supercars at the 2024 Canadian International AutoShow held in Toronto from February 16 to the 25th.

Indeed, a wide variety of supercars, muscle cars, and sports cars are being displayed to the public, many for the first time in Canada.

A sign of the changing times in the automobile industry: many of these extreme vehicles are powered exclusively or in parts by electrons, including the Rimac Nevera, which is the centrepiece of the Grand Touring Automobiles display.

Along with this Croatian-built supercar, the high-end Toronto-area dealership has also brought a Bugatti Chiron Pur Sport, a Pininfarina Battista, an Aston Martin BD12 Volante, a Lamborghini Revuelto, and even an example of the one-of-112 Countach LPI 800-4, a revival of the 80s icon.

Elsewhere in the Metro Toronto Convention Centre are booths for the Pfaff Auto Group, which displays McLaren models such as the Artura and the 720S GT3 EVO, alongside the Pagani lineup.

Some more attainable sports cars are also present at the show too, since Chevrolet has put its new Corvette E-Ray hybrid on display and Ford has brought the 2024 Mustang Dark Horse Muscle car.

Speaking of Muscle cars, Dodge is showing the Charger Daytona SRT concept for the first time in Canada, previewing the electric version of its next performance model.

Here are these models in pictures as they appear in Toronto:

Seen for the first time in Canada, this model is a convertible version of the British brand’s recent Grand Tourer. Under its long hood is a 4.0L twin-turbocharged V8 engine built by AMG that generates 671 horsepower and 590 lb-ft of torque.


Bugatti Chiron Pur Sport

If the “regular” Bugatti Chiron is not exclusive enough for you, the Chiron Pur Sport model, limited at 60 units worldwide, could be of interest. One of these 60 handling-focussed variants of the French Supercar has made its way to Toronto. Mounted at the rear, an 8.0L W16 engine equipped with four turbochargers deliver 1,479 horsepower and 1,180 lb-ft of torque to the pavement.


Chevrolet Corvette E-Ray

The E-Ray is the new hybrid version of the mid-engined C8 Corvette, and also the fastest accelerating car to wear the name since it was introduced in the 50s. Thanks to a small electric motor on the front axle and a 6,2L V8 engine behind the driver that combine to make 655 horsepower and 595 lb-ft of torque, the Corvette E-Ray can accelerate to 60 mph (97 km/h) in 2.5 seconds, faster than the gas-only ZO6.

While not a production vehicle, the Dodge Charger Daytona SRT concept previews the electric version of the next-generation of muscle cars from the American automaker. Under its design inspired by the 60s, this model will feature a very modern electric architecture that should make it faster than current models powered by the Hellcat V8, according to Dodge. The production version is also expected to offer gasoline engines, but no V8.


Ford Mustang Dark Horse

Dodge is not the only one to bring a new muscle car to the show since Ford has put on display the 2024 Mustang Dark Horse, a track-ready version of the new Mustang which features a 500 horsepower V8 engine and a six-speed Tremec manual transmission.


Lamborghini Revuelto

The Lamborghini Revuelto is the latest supercar from the Italian brand, and its most powerful ever. Indeed, its plug-in hybrid powertrain composed of a 6,5L V12 engine and three electric motors help it generate 1,001 horsepower.

As its name suggests, this supercar is a modern revival of the iconic 70s and 80s Lamborghini, which celebrated its 50th birthday in 2021. Despite its retro-inspired design, this supercar is very modern featuring a mild-hybrid V12 powertrain that delivers 803 horsepower.

Three Mclaren vehicles are on display at the Pfaff booth, starting with the Artura. Considered the brand’s “entry-level” model, this supercar features McLaren’s first plug-in hybrid powertrain, as well as its first six-cylinder engine. This combination results in 671 horsepower and 531 lb-ft of torque. Also present is a 720S GT3 EVO race car that has participated in the Rolex 24 at Daytona under the Pfaff Motorsports banner back in January, and a 750S Spider, which is essentially a lighter and more powerful version of the former 720S, which features a 4.0L twin-turbo V8 good for 740 horsepower.


Pagani Huayra and Zonda R Liquid

Also on the Pfaff stand are three Pagani models, including the coupe and convertible versions of the Huayra. This supercar has only been produced in 200 units, 100 for the coupe and 100 for the convertible. Both body styles share the same 6.0L twin-turbo V12 engine that was specially developed for the Huayra by AMG. The other model on display is a Zonda R Liquid, a one-off version of the already very exclusive Zonda R that features body work made entirely out of carbon fibre.


Pininfarina Battista

Conceived by the famed Italian design firm, this supercar is all-electric and it boasts performance figures that make it one of the fastest cars in the world, with an acceleration from 0 to 100 km/h in only 1.86 seconds and a top speed in excess of 350 km/h.


Rimac Nevera

Considered the centrepiece of the Grand Touring Automobile display, the Rimac Nevera is an all-electric supercar that holds over 20 performance records, thanks to its output of 1,888 horsepower which makes it accelerate to 100 km/h in just 1.81 seconds before reaching a top speed of 451 km/h.
