My Dream Drive
What makes James Bond's favorite car so special? Skyfall opens and I got to drive an Aston Martin Vanquish around Montreal Thursday morning!
Operating out of a prestigious, centrally located, 20,000 ft2 showroom on the island of Montreal is a one-stop shop for high-end automotive services.
Elio Giulione is living out his dream.
Every little boy or girl who has ever thought of being a mechanic has also dreamed of working on, and driving, the best and most exotic cars in the world: Porsche, BMW, Mercedes, Lamborghini, Maserati, Ferrari and Aston Martin.
For the past 30 years and counting, Elio Giulione has been living out his dream. From his early days of working for other garages to eventually owning his own businesses, Elio has covered every possible aspect of the auto-mechanic industry as he has been a service technician, racing manager, engineer, teacher, trainer, and above all, passionate student of what makes cars go! It is his insatiable thirst for knowledge that keeps his proverbial motor running. Elio's constant quest for learning about new techniques and technologies is what sets him apart from the average auto-technician.
His dedication to the Ferrari brand in particular includes years of practical experience in the garage and on the track and has resulted in the successful completion of the required Ferrari Training Centre courses. Elio has, in fact, earned the most honourable rank of Ferrari Master Technician.
Thank you Elio for helping me live my dream.
