The Canadian International AutoShow opens Friday at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre. This year’s must-see exhibits include Auto Exotica, which will feature 30 luxury and exotic cars from the likes of McLaren, Lamborghini, Rolls-Royce, Aston Martin and the Dubai-based Devel Motors. Inspired by a fighter jet, Devel Motors’ hypercar, called the Sixteen, employs a quad-turbo 12.3-litre V-16 engine that generates a mind-numbing 5,000 horses.

In addition, the winners of this year’s Canadian car and SUV of the year awards will be announced. The shortlist for car of the year includes the Kia Forte, Kia Stinger and Volvo V90 R-Design. The shortlist for the utility vehicle includes the Mazda CX-5, Hyundai Kona and Jaguar I-PACE.

Some automakers also offer special incentives in celebration of auto-show season, on top of existing rebates. These auto-show incentives take the form of either cash rebates or financing- and leasing-rate reductions, depending on the automaker and model.
