TORONTO, Ont. — Some of the most classic, rare — and valuable — cars to be found at the Canadian International AutoShow will be in Cobble Beach Classics.
Previously known as Art and the Automobile, Cobble Beach Classics is consistently among the anticipated features of the AutoShow. Presented in partnership with Cobble Beach Concours d’Elegance — a show of elegant and rarely seen automobiles, often viewed as art,held each September on the shores of Georgian Bay — this year’s exhibit will feature 15 cars from throughout the 20thcentury, all beautifully and painstakingly restored.
“Each of these beautiful cars can be considered a disruptor in the automotive industry,” says Rob McLeese, Founder and Show Chair of Cobble Beach Concours d’Elegance. “They changed the game when they were introduced with new technologies or styles. They made a difference, and turned things in a new direction.”
Among The Disruptors being featured in Cobble Beach Classics are:
Similar to last year’s ICONS installation, a commemorative poster has been painted by Canadian artist Jay Koka to celebrate The Disruptors. The poster features the 1934 Bugatti Type 57 Atalante Coupe parked in front of Toronto’s Massey Hall, with the exclusive Bugatti La Voiture Noire — which is making its Canadian premiere at the 2020 AutoShow — in the background. Prints of The Disruptors will be available for sale in the Cobble Beach Classics room at the AutoShow.
Cobble Beach Classics will host special docent tours of its 2020 exhibit for accredited media on Thursday, February 13th, 2020, following the formal Media Day Preview Tour. More details will be available once the Media Day schedule is finalized. Accredited media interested in attending one of the tours can contact firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com to reserve a spot. Media accreditation to the 2020 AutoShow is now online and can be requested at autoshow.ca/media-registration.
Cobble Beach Classics, presented by Hagerty Insurance, will be showcased in the 700-level gallery room in the South Building of the Metro Toronto Convention Centre.
