    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 [...]

    HURACAN LP580-2 LAUNCH (42)

    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 [...]

    Koenigsegg Regera Unveiling at Geneva International Motorshow

    Unveiling at Geneva International Motorshow
    Koenigsegg Regera
    Press release March 3, 2015

    The Regera – A New Era
    The Regera was created as a luxury Megacar alternative to Koenigsegg’s traditional extreme lightweight race-like road cars. Even though the One:1 and the Agera RS have surprising levels of practicality, creature comforts and features, their primary focus is, and has always been, to be the overall fastest cars on the planet – around a racetrack or elsewhere. Regera is Swedish for “to Reign” – a suitable name for a machine that offers a never seen before combination of power, responsiveness and luxury – creating a true Dr. Jekyll & Mr. Hyde persona. In spite of all its advanced technology and creature comforts, the Regera is comparatively light. Therefore it can still perform competitively around a race circuit. According to us, the only Hyper/Megacar that could be faster around a circuit, [...]

    Lotus Evora 400 debuts at the Geneva Motorshow

    – Fastest and most powerful production Lotus ever
    – Lighter and more efficient than before
    – Legendary benchmark Lotus handling

    About the Lotus Evora 400

    The new Lotus Evora 400 is the latest pure and focused supercar from Lotus, combining high performance with the legendary Lotus benchmark handling. It is faster and dynamically more capable than the previous Lotus Evora leading to greater agility and a more involving drive.

    Maximum speed is 186 mph (300 km/h) and acceleration 0-60 mph is just 4.1 seconds (0-100 km/h in 4.2 seconds). This enables the new Lotus Evora 400 to lap the challenging test track at the Lotus Headquarters in Hethel, Norfolk, a scintillating SIX seconds faster than the previous model.

    Over two thirds of the Lotus Evora 400 is new, including its supercharged and charge-cooled mid-mounted 3.5-litre V6 engine producing 400 horsepower and [...]

    Where were you before you started at Lamborghini?
    Since my very first job in high-school, I’ve always worked with cars – I’ve done many different jobs, from detailing right up to assisting the service department. I’ve loved every minute of it and never considered working in any other business.

    What brought you to Lamborghini?
    Since I was a little kid, Lamborghini has always been at the top of my list. Working for Lamborghini was definitely a big ambition of mine. And I didn’t want to miss out on the opportunity when it came up.

    What’s it like working for such a successful and inspiring brand?
    I’ve had to work hard to prove myself here. It’s been 3 years now, and I still come in everyday with the same enthusiasm and I go home with a great feeling. I love it.

    What’s a highlight of your day?
    Meeting all [...]
