    From the unmistakable roar of the engine to the legendary attention to detail, RUF cars are in a league of their own, and Vancouver and Calgary-based Weissach Performance Ltd. is proud to announce it has become Canada’s sole representative of RUF Automobile of Germany. RUF Automobile GmbH began its life in 1939 in Pfaffenhausen, Germany, and in 1981 became officially recognized as a manufacturer by the German Department of transport. In 1974, Alois Jr. Took control of the business from his father and founder Alois Ruf Sr, and inspired by his love of Porsche automobiles decided to start a Porsche repair and service shop. The company has since become the ultimate driver’s car proving that sports cars do not necessarily need to be without compromise.

    From the 1987 [...]

    koenigsegg

    The Koenigsegg One:1 owned by the BHP Project and driven by Oliver Webb broke the Vmax200 speed record not once, not twice but three times last weekend, with a terminal speed of 240mph over the 1.4 mile track at Bruntingthorpe, in the United Kingdom.

    If some of that last sentence didn’t make sense to you, here are the main players in this drama…..

    The BHP Project is the online presence that represents a rather extraordinary collection of sports cars, including the blue carbon Koenigsegg One:1.

    Oliver Webb (Oli) is a World Endurance Championship driver from the UK, driving in the LMP1 class for ByKolles Racing in 2016.

    Vmax200 by Auto Vivendi – from the event’s own website – “is the UKs premier top–speed driving event where owners of sports cars, supercars and [...]

    Salinas, California (Saturday April 30, 2016) – Canadian Driver Damon Ockey drove the No. 09 Lamborghini of Calgary entry home in eight overall and second in class despite some mid-race challenges with the power-steering in his 620 HP Huracán.

    “The race started out really well,” Ockey said. “I made my way up a couple of positions into first place in class. I came in for the pit stop and when I restarted the car my power steering was out. I was down a good second a lap after that. It was a great workout though. Ended up P2. I made it back into P1 at one point, but just wasn’t able to hold the position because of the power steering issue. Still, a fun race. We did pretty good. We’re going to get the car [...]

    Lamborghini Huracán LP580-2 Unveiling

    Saturday March 19th Round Up

    HURACAN LP580-2 LAUNCH (10)

    On behalf of all of the Lamborghini Vancouver team we would like to say a special thank you to everyone that attended the event this past Saturday. We had a fantastic day hosting you and we hope you enjoyed it as much as we did! Stunning cars, Great People, Delicious Food… we can’t think of a better way to spend Saturday afternoons.

     

    HURACAN LP580-2 LAUNCH (42)

    There’s a popular saying that claims you should never mess with a good thing, but sometimes the status quo begs to be challenged. Well known for overcoming challenges and pushing boundaries, Lamborghini took the acclaimed all-wheel drive Huracán LP 610-4, trimmed off the front [...]

    Lotus Evora 400

    Now Accepting Orders

    Lighter and more powerful than before, the redesigned Evora 400 is also faster and more sophisticated than any other Lotus in history, claim its creators. It’s been around for six years – this is not so much a face-lift as a reincarnation. Lotus says more than two-thirds of the parts are new. The Evora looks much the same from dead abeam, but the nose and tail are comprehensively new, and the cabin too. So is much of what’s underneath.

     

    400 horses from a Toyota 3.5-litre V6 engine, which Lotus transmogrifies with its own supercharging, charge-cooling, intakes, exhaust and management. It’s an ever-alert beating heart to the car.  At the front there are much bigger grilles designed into the nose, there not just to give the car a more thrusting appearance but also to allow [...]

    2016 Lamborghini Huracan Spyder Launch Event

    Friday 30th October @ Lamborghini Vancouver

    Ladies & Gentleman please welcome the 2016 Lamborghini Huracan Spyder LP610-4.

    When it goes on sale next spring, the Huracán Spyder will offer three roof colors (red, brown, and black), 11 non-special paint colors, five interior trim packages, 17 interior colors, and endless more personalization options available through the Ad Personam customization program.

    As expected, the Huracan Spyder is identical to the coupe from the waist down, with only the soft-top, the engine lid, and the rear haunches setting it apart.

    The new soft-top is arguably the highlight of the Huracan Spyder, as it was designed with the utmost attention as to not alter the coupe’s aerodynamic shape too much.

    Image result for dreams take flight

    2015 has been a good year so far for Weissach & Lamborghini Vancouver in supporting local and national charities. We try as much as possible to give back to the local community and we will continue to make our efforts bigger and better in the future. Last weekend’s event was no different. 22 Lamborghini owners set off on a 3 day,1000km drive from Calgary to Vancouver in support of the unbelievable work by charity group ‘Dreams Take Flight’.

    Dreams Take Flight is a national non-profit organization made up entirely of volunteers dedicated to providing the trip of a lifetime to medically, mentally, physically, socially or emotionally challenged children. With the aid of the Air Canada Foundation and local sponsors and businesses they make dreams a reality for special kids across Western Canada. Air Canada donates an aircraft to each chapter for the day and [...]
