The 2016 Montreal International Auto Show (MIAS) is home to a range of new models for the next several days, including a number of dreamy exotics and sports cars. The event is being held at the Palais des Congrès de Montréal, and is open to the public until January 24th.
- Ferrari 488 GTB
Canadians are sometimes behind when it comes to certain model unveilings, and the new Ferrari 488 GTB (Gran Turismo Berlinetta) is a prime example, having made its North American debut last year in the U.S. The track-ready supercar sports a 3.9-liter turbocharged V-8 boasting 661 horsepower and 560 pound-feet of torque — which is more than its Ferrari 458 Speciale sibling. Top speed is plus 205 miles per hour, and zero-to-62 mph acceleration is accomplished in three seconds.
- 2016 Lamborghini Aventador SV
Another beauty unveiled at the annual MIAS, the new Lamborghini Aventador LP750-4 Superveloce packs a 6.5-liter V-12 that churns out a whopping 740 hp and 509 lb-ft of torque. It can reach the 62 mile-per-hour mark from standstill in just 2.8 seconds, and tops out around (or over) 217 mph. Downforce and aerodynamic efficiency have been improved.
- 2016 Lamborghini Huracan Spyder
The hot new (or new for Canadians) Huracán LP610-4 Spyder convertible can drop its top in just 17 seconds — and at up to speeds of 31 mph — to reveal flashy green seats that compliment a sleek grey environment. Under the hood sits a 610-hp 5.2-liter V-10 engine mated to a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission. Zero-to-62 acceleration is managed in 3.4 seconds, and top speed is 201 mph.
- McLaren 570S
This model is, without a doubt, a real head-turner. Sleek on the outside, luxurious on the inside, and a heck of a performer by nature, this 562-hp entry-level beauty is competing with the Audi R8 and Porsche 911 Turbo for the spotlight. The model is equipped with a twin-turbo, 3.8-liter V-8 engine that pairs to a seven-speed dual-clutch gearbox, and features more carbon fiber than you can imagine. The McLaren 570S can jet to 62 mph in only 3.2 seconds, and reach a top speed of 204 mph.
- 2016 Audi S8 Plus
Audi’s super sedan is also worth mentioning, especially when considering its tweaked 4.0-liter TFSI (V-8 turbo) that makes a impressive 605 ponies and as much as 553 lb-ft of torque — more than the base S8. The high-powered four-door model also gets an eight-speed tiptronic transmission, and bolts from zero-to-62 mph in 3.8 seconds — the last of which is likely due in part to a mostly aluminum frame that helped the vehicle shed a few pounds.
