2016 North American International Auto Show

On Jan 14, I had the pleasure of attending the NAIAS "industry preview" with my good friend Justin K - the owner of Incarnet Motorsport - a local car dealership within the Greater Toronto Area.

THE TRIP

We embarked from Toronto to Windsor on Wednesday night, where a buddy let us crash, so we could depart to Detroit early in the AM.

The one car that I am unfortunately missing is the Acura NSX. It would seem in the next 3 years, there will be an all out war among $100K - 200K super cars. Mainly the Acura NSX vs. Lexus LC 500 vs. Nissan GT-R. Too bad the Audi R8 came out a couple of years ago and got a decent head-start.... 

Of all the cars, I am the most excited for the Lexus LC 500. As more and more high performance cars move away from the Naturally Aspirated engine, seeing a NA V8 in the mix is exciting. Especially considering how monumental the Lexus LFA ($400K) truly was. Thank God they reviewed their pricing.
