The McLaren 650S.

Hot off the heels of the European debut at the Geneva Motor Show in Switzerland earlier this month, McLaren officially launched the highly anticipated 650S supercar in North America this week at the Vancouver International Auto Show.

Highlights from the Canadian International AutoShow.

Every year, without fail, the Canadian International AutoShow presents a great collection of ultra-desirable cars and this year was perhaps one of the best in recent memory.

Opulent and regal.

The 2014 Rolls-Royce Wraith is unlike any other car on the road. It is not a variation on a theme—it is arguably the most unique production automobile in the world today. Here’s why.

A centenary celebration.

On December 1, 1914, three of the seven Maserati brothers, led by Alfieri Maserati, established the eponymous Societá Anonima Officine Alfieri Maserati in Bologna. Thus began a family dynasty that has now stretched nearly a full century, one filled with engineering savvy and racing success.

Pocket rocket.

FROM THE ARCHIVE: As far as truly authentic Italian experiences go, it’s tough to match ripping around Lake Como from behind the wheel of a brand new Fiat 500 Abarth. Sergio Marchionne, the company’s Italian-Canadian CEO will now be taking 100 per cent control of Chrysler.

Jeff Koons accelerates a tradition.

“I worked every day on this car for about six months,” said Jeff Koons recently, waving a hand across his BMW M3 GT2 Art Car at Art Basel Miami Beach. The 58-year-old artist was in town to unveil his work of auto art, which rolled onto Floridian soil this month for its North American debut.

Scenic glides.

Those European riverboats that slowly make their way down the continent’s beloved waterways are picking up speed. River cruising has become the fastest-growing segment of the cruise industry—and these vessels are not your grandparents’ riverboats.

White hot.

With the days of pegging the Lincoln Motor Company solely to chauffeured black sedans long behind us, the brand’s latest reveal begins another chapter in the American auto manufacturer’s motoring life.

German engineering meets Canadian meteorology.

Any day you get to drive a Porsche has the capacity to be a very good day. There’s a fundamental excellence behind every one of the German carmaker’s automobiles that derives from decades of racing and, more pointedly, from developing cars that people are able to drive quickly, easily.
