I am assuming you are talking about this little rocket on wheels? It is the Bentley Continental GT Supersports. It's a pity that I didn't get a proper shot of its wheels.

Although there were quite a few luxury cars out there (S Class, 7 series, Acura RL, Lexus LS, etc), these are the ones that really caught my eye!

The XJ is drop dead gorgeous! Can't think of a better looking four door than this one. Even the Rapide isn't as imposing as this one. Masterpiece!

That is right. The XJL is the long wheel base version of the XJ.

Man after this the Toronto Auto show looks like we were seriously shortchanged! Some serious amount of eye-candy there.

Those are just normal headlamps with the eyelids going. Really dont get the point though. And thanks for the wonderful pictures. Looks awesome. How come there are no pictures of the 670 SV ?

The XJ-L looks fabulous. The S-class, 7-series and Audi A8 really need to step up their game to match the XJ. The muscle cars look amazing too. Specially the random one. Would love to own something like that one day! Thanks for sharing these awesome pictures.

P.S. Can we have some more?

haha! That's one more reason to prefer Vancouver over Toronto. The other 2 main reasons being the weather and our beautiful mountains and ocean

There weren't too many supercars at this show. Pictures of the LP670 SV can been seen at another thread that I created for a supercar show, which took place a few months ago. That show had a lot more supercars and exotics. Here's the link for that thread.

Sit back and enjoy the show!
Very good coverage of the show Leodelg. I love Vancouver more than any other city in Canada just because there are super cool cars seen all the time. Everytime I am in Downtown Vancouver, I see some beautiful car cruising down the road every few minutes. I wish I was there to check out the Reventon personally.

P.S. You seem to be a Canucks fan. Way to go boy .

I had clicked some random pictures of so called best Shelby's of all time when I was in Houston. And most of them had the original signature (not the sticker). I tried to find some pics of them but found only two.

Check them out. It is a Shelby 1967 GT500 "Fastback" from California. What a registration plate to flaunt!!!

Indeed! Wish they give us a chance to do an encore of the Team Canada gold celebrations by winning the Stanley Cup this year

Some classics that were on display at the car show

Look how much bigger it is compared to the Jags in the background

In my opinion, this car was one of the top 3 stars of the show - the other 2 being the Reventon and the SLS AMG.

The XJ L is the best of the entire lot. Beats everything elsehandsdown in the looks department.
