Comments Off on The Bugatti Chiron Arrives in Vancouver
The King, the BUGATTI Chiron, graced us with his presence last week in West Vancouver.
The King has Arrived
On Monday, September 25th we joined forces with Real Estate extraordinaire, Malcolm Hasman, for another BUGATTI Chiron debut. Situated near the top of the British Properties, the Chiron looked right at home next to the $10.8 million mansion. The Chiron’s arrival was celebrated in full force. With guests from every industry, they could not help but admire the masterpiece.

Whether you live in the city or country, or whether you drive a big or small vehicle, winter driving conditions and winter tires will impact your vehicle’s performance.
Benefits of Winter Tires
The biggest misconception drivers have when it comes to winter tires is believing that all-season tires are superior. Many drivers, for example, believe winter tires are only useful in regions with lots of snow. In fact, once temperatures drop below seven degrees Celsius, winter tires perform better whether the road surface is dry, snow covered, slushy or icy. Winter tires also feature specialized rubber compounds that retain elasticity in temperatures below -30 degrees Celsius and treads that grip at cold temperatures. In fact, winter tires deliver up to 50 per cent more cold-weather traction than all-seasons.
Another misconception is that all-season or summer tires provide sufficient traction in winter. One of the most important advantages of winter tires is reduced stopping distance when [...]
We had an awesome time over the weekend at the Porsche Rally. Joined by approximately 80 other incredible Porsches this was sure to be an exciting day.
An Incredible Start!
Drivers congregated at the Langley Porsche Centre at 8am on Saturday morning before embarking on the spectacular journey ahead. After a hot breakfast and a briefing by the event hosts and local RCMP, drivers kicked off the first annual Porsche Rally. The Weissach Team was out in full force. With our Sales Superstar Mr. Mike Jones full of excitement. Alongside, the Weissach Sales Manager, Kai Hensler and our beautiful Sales and Lot Assistant, Chelsea Harris.
The convoy was led by a rare Porsche 918 Spyder, valued at $2 million.
The rally was met by beautiful weather, stunning landscapes and perfect driving conditions for a drive full of exciting Porsches from across the Lower Mainland.
The 8th annual Luxury & Supercar Weekend brought together a selection of some of the most stunning vintage and exotic cars. As one of Vancouver’s most anticipated event for any car fanatic, it is no surprise that this was the biggest one yet.
Kicking Off Luxury & Supercar Weekend
This event kicked-off at Inform Interiors on Friday, September 9th. Attendees were surrounded by great people, incredible cars, and delicious food. In addition, we also heard from Christopher Pagani about the new Pagani Huayra which was also showcased at Luxury & Supercar Weekend.
The first day of Luxury & Supercar Weekend brought some unwelcome showers but that did not detract the dedicated car aficionados that wait for this weekend every year. Weissach and Lotus of Vancouver had a surprise for the public, three incredible Lotus’s on display. The LF1, and two Lotus Evora 400’s – definitely not a sight you see every day!
In celebration of its inaugural year, the Porsche Rally played host to the Porsche Rally Pop Up Party at our Weissach Clubhouse.
This event brought a full house with sponsors such as Pinnacle Vodka, Suntory Whisky TOKI, Mission Hill Family Estate Wines, Luxury Alliance Group, iGlo, and Trove. All registered drivers of the upcoming Porsche Rally in September were in attendance. View pictures below of this incredible evening.

We have had the privilege of hosting our monthly summer event, Cars & Coffee, for many years now. And, we have to say that this weekends event was one of our best turnouts to date.
We saw an assortment of new, classic, and unique vehicles from across Vancouver. Despite a gloomy start, the response we received from our attendees was nothing but positive. We would like to send out a huge THANK YOU to all of those that continue to support our events. We raised a significant amount of donations for the Greater Vancouver Food Bank. Their mission is to create empowering environments that provide and promote access to healthy food, education and training. To find out how you can help further, click here. In addition, another big thank you to the food bank for providing two volunteers over the weekend, who were an enormous help throughout the morning.
We spent last Saturday, July 15th on an incredible drive: the Pemberton Day Drive. This annual charity drive brings out several participants on a beautiful drive from downtown Vancouver, up and through the Sea-to-Sky, and on to sunny Pemberton.
This drive began at our Weissach Clubhouse early Saturday morning. After coffee, light breakfast, and an informative drivers meeting we set off towards our destination.
After crossing the mighty Lions Gate Bridge, we went on to the windy Sea-to-Sky highway to reach our first stop, Cypress Bowl. If you’ve never driven the road up to Cypress Bowl, you should. Not stopping at the [...]
