On Monday this week it was time for the Motor expo’s annual invasion of Canary Wharf. Like lions the resting on grass after a nice dinner the green areas in Canary Wharf have during the week been occupied with premium and exotic cars from various manufacturers.

Canary Wharf is a cluster of skyscrapers on a small piece of land surrounded by canals. With big buys like Bank of America, HSBC, Citigroup as well as other capitalistic firms occupying offices, or in some cases buildings, Canary Warf is seen as London’s equivalent to the Financial District in Manhattan. With an average salary €126 000 per annum in Canary Wharf, most workers based in the area pack the dough necessary to finance the cars that were exhibited in there very own rest area? Clever of the organizers right? Showcasing cars at the work place of their primary target group. Besides that it gives the workers an excuse for running late from lunch break. Besides that the expo was open for anyone else who happened to be in the neighborhood.

In the frenzy of everyone switching business cards more faster than a police car switch lanes during a high speed chase, the Pagani Zonda F was the high light. Not surrounded by ropes it was exposed for anyone to get up close with and feel its carbon fiber shell. With of weight of just 1, 230kg (2,712 lb) the Zonda F is light as Nicole Riche and Tara Reid onboard sitting in a Mini Cooper.

Mechanical pornography is the phrase that sums up the car. Every single part of car was conceived with passion for engineering, an absolute marvel which makes the Mercedes SLR, Porsche CGT and Bugatti Veyron appear somewhat mass produced. Not only is the outer shell pure eye candy, but opening the engine cover reveals glorious naked mechanics made out of carbon fiber, magnesium and other materials you won’t find your kitchen. Hand built in a quantity of only 25 cars per year the Zonda F roadster is an Italian super car rarity which justifies the price of €538,000.
