Located on the beautiful lawns of Van Dusen Botanical Garden were some of the world’s most important examples of automotive achievements from manufacturers such as Lamborghini, Pagani, McLaren, Bugatti, Ferrari, Maserati, Bentley and many more.
“Metro Vancouver has more luxury vehicles per capita than any other market in North America,” states Craig Stowe, President of the Luxury & Supercar Weekend.

My favorite was the award-winning Concours classic 1933 Alfa Romeo 6C 1750 GS 6th Series, winner of the Gold Cup at the Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este in Italy. I first saw this vehicle at the Pebble Beach Concours in Monterey a few years ago which is own by David Cohens of West Vancouver.

The Luxury & Supercar Weekend is more than just an automobile show, it big business. Last year one participating manufacturer whose super cars start at $300,000 sold six vehicles during the weekend and several ‘SOLD’ signs discreetly started to appear on the Sunday.

Complimenting these fine automobiles was the Oakridge Centre Fashion Pavilion which showcased three daily fashion shows featuring the latest fall fashion from top retailers such as Max Mara, Stuart Weitzman, DKNY, Boss, BluBird and Harry Rosen. This European runway show featured top fashion trends, from sportswear’s continuing influence to fall silhouettes for both men and women.

The Luxury & Supercar Weekend is well on its way to establishing Vancouver as Canada’s premier city of fine automobiles.
