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 [...]

2015 has been a fantastic year for Weissach in many ways! This year we celebrated 35 years of pre-owned Porsche sales and service, and Lotus Cars in Western Canada. Building on the success of our history, in July we opened our new facility in Calgary, Alberta; as we celebrate our past we are equally excited for whats to come! Highlights this year included our annual Tech Session which this year featured Don Kitch of Proformance Racing School, our June Drive weekend to Predator Ridge, attending the 35th Anniversary of the Porsche Club’s annual Whistler Weekend, supporting the Vancouver Foodbank with our ever-popular Cars & Coffee, and a host of other events. When we host events our aims are to give back to the community and to bring car enthusiasts together. We were extremely successful at doing that [...]
Lamborghini Vancouver, McLaren Motorsports & Weissach will host a Food & Toy Drive event on Saturday December 12th 2015 from 12-3pm at the Lamborghini Vancouver showroom. The event will support the Greater Vancouver Food Bank & the Lower Mainland Christmas Bureau.
Starbucks will be on hand to provide some hot drinks and Christmas treats! Festivities throughout the day will include face-painting, photo-ops with your favourite sports cars, meet & greets with the main man Santa Claus, our very own Super Trofeo race car driver and…. a surprise celebrity guest! Join us for this family filled Christmas event to support the wonderful work of these two local charities.
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 [...]

The event began with an opening party on Friday evening at Inform Interiors in Gastown. The 50 Water Street location showcases three floors and an outdoor rooftop of the world’s best contemporary furniture and design products.

August marked a major milestone for Pacific Northwest Porsche enthusiasts. Since 1980 Porsche Club of America members have been meeting in Whistler British Columbia for 3 days of socializing and activities, the theme of course being everyone’s favorite car marque. With a few skipped years due to conflicting events and a few years held at different venues, 25 Whistler Weekend events have been held over the course of the last 35 years.
Organized by Canada West Region and Pacific Northwest Region, the event takes countless volunteer hours and hard-work from a dedicated group of enthusiasts to pull off. The results are unlike any other car event in the region, and has attracted club members from as far away as California and Alberta.
The weekend features a Bavarian-style welcome reception, a Saturday concours [...]
