Oakville residents looking to purchase that exotic dream luxury car won’t have to go very far to find one.

Word is it that Grand Touring Automobiles is soon opening up a new dealership/Polestar location here.

While an opening date has yet to be announced, the luxury car dealer already has dealerships set up in Toronto, Vaughan and Calgary.

Grand Touring Automobiles offers one of the largest selections of luxury and exotic cars in Canada.

Established in 1974, their showrooms are stocked with the latest luxury and exotic models from Aston Martin, Bentley, Bugatti, Jaguar, Karma, Lamborghini, Land Rover, Polestar, Rolls-Royce, as well as an exclusive selection of top-quality pre-owned vehicles.

Finding that new rare exotic vehicle can be difficult, but Grand Touring is continuously expanding its portfolio of luxury brands like the Lamborghini Huracán or customers can even try out the Polestar 2, the first car in the world with an infotainment system powered by Android/Google.

The new Oakville location, like other Grand Touring dealerships, will provide customer lounges and an experienced sales staff that will help customers find that latest Aston Martin DBX or Land Rover Defender or show them pre-owned vehicles available in the showroom like the Bentley Bentayga.

Service and maintenance will also be provided for vehicles from their trained team of UK and European technicians.

Grand Touring Automobiles is also the exclusive Canadian retailer of the first Battista pure-electric hyper GT delivered by luxury Italian carmaker Automobili Pininfarina to a customer in Canada.

The Verde Piemonte Battista, the most powerful car ever designed and built in Italy, was designed, developed and handcrafted at the Battista Atelier in Cambiano, northern Italy.

Every Battista is powered by four independent electric motors, a powerful 120 kWh lithium-ion battery delivering up to 1,900 hp and 2,340 Nm of torque, with zero-emissions range of up to 476 km.

The Battista achieved two new world records for a production car at Indore’s Natrax facility in India in February of this year, hit 1/4 mile sprint in 8.55 seconds and 1/2 mile sprint in 13.38 seconds.

“On behalf of Grand Touring Automobiles and myself, we are truly honoured to represent Automobili Pininfarina as their exclusive retailer in Canada,” said Paul Cummings, Grand Touring Automobiles Dealer Principal and CEO.  “With the combination of tremendous automotive heritage and incredible vision for the future of hyper automobiles, we are thrilled to be part of the Automobili Pininfarina family.”
