The Coolest Exotic Cars at CIAS (as Seen Through Snap Spectacles)

Picture1

For 43 years, the Canadian International AutoShow has featured foreign beauties, special editions, and world-changing vehicles with all the latest and greatest in innovation.

This year, however, was a particularly special experience for me. That's because I got to combine two of my favourite things in the world: wearable tech and exotic cars.

I was fortunate enough to get my hands on a pair of Snap Inc. Spectacles just in time for the AutoShow. Sold only in very limited quantities, Snapchat’s latest innovation is a wearable tech – a pair of sunglasses with a built-in camera so you can take Snapchat videos on the go. It automatically syncs to Snapchat for you to edit and post.

Check out these Snaps I made of the coolest exotic vehicles at CIAS 2017.

This is the perfect British Grand Touring automobile for the next James Bond movie. The DB11 replaces the DB9 seen in the previous films. This car comes with a twin turbo V12 engine with 600 horsepower –  more than enough to catch any foreign spy. Onboard weapons TBD.

For the low price of $2,700,000 US this hot commodity can be all yours. There are currently only 200 Bugatti Chirons in production. Powered by a W12 quad-turbo 1,479 horsepower engine, this car goes 0 to 100 km/h in less than 2.5 seconds.

Can you easily see yourself behind the wheel of one of these bad boys? Exotic cars are quite the investment, ranging anywhere from a few hundred thousand to millions of dollars – and that’s without factoring in other costs like fuel and auto insurance. But for a car fanatic, it might be worth the money.
