Yep Canadian car and the owner likes to track it. It is at Legendary in Milton but the owner doesn't live there.

The Zonda R is un****ingbelievable. I can't understand how perfect they got the CF weave to bend like that. I've seen Zondas before but this car IS worth the price of admission and if that doesn't do it for ya the Aston Marton One-77 and Aventador should.

The owner said driving it just doesn't compare to anything that is production, you'd have to stack it up against competition racers.

I've seen it at Legendary too, for free. Why would it be worth the $20 admission?

Saw it Monday, very nice indeed. Found it funny how people were touching a $2M track car that showed track wear which is fine tbh yet the Veyron was untouchable lol The jerk behind the stand did more talking to the model and peeved me off when he told a 10 yr old kid to get his hands of the glass surround when drooling at the veyron. I was gonna say something but the kids mom told the guy right off.

While looking at the Zonda a kid literally dropped his iphone on the car while trying to take an int. pic, no one flinched and it was PACKED in there.

btw who saw the barn fresh $700k-$1.2M white merc in the corner Sweet car, big price.

Tickets were cheaper for early bird and $15 if you had caa and printed them off the net.

The ZondaR was beautiful, I kinda wish it wasn't so close, to get a better picture but whatevs, does anyone know how "public" the showroom at Lengendary Motor cars is? I wanna go check this thing out and maybe get some good pics of it...

The guy I talked to behind the ZondaR was a lot more relaxed, he was nice to talk to especially once he realized I knew what I was talking about and not just talking non-sense.

Did you get a pic of the Merc? is this the one you're referring to?:

I got a few good videos of the show in YouTube:http://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL76235ED107DDF9D3

It's open to the public and they are quite nice. I emailed ahead of time to make sure everything was cool but the showroom is open to the public the shop is not but I was able to see it (no pictures though.)

I heard the Zonda is on the second floor though so you might not be able to see it as I think that is employees only.

Pictures from my 2011 visit are here

That's the one, ya got a bunch of pics still on the camera. It's funny to see so many people in a room yet only a handful at most ever stopped at one time to check this beauty out. I don't expect most people to understand

The classics just don't seem to get the attention at a new car show.

I was looking up the Zonda R at the Auto Show on the web and came across this thread and thought I'd sign up to talk about it. I also own a BMW so I guess it also makes sense to sign up.

I thought it was pretty ridiculous how they let people so close to the Zonda. A lot of people were touching it and there is the opportunity for it to get damaged. When the kid dropped his iPhone did it scratch or dent the car? I doubt he was the first and last one to do something like that.

Also the Bugatti people were very snobby (as to be expected I guess).
