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 [...]
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.
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 [...]

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, [...]

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.
