Default Luxury & Supercar Weekend - Vancouver, Canada

Earlier today, I had the chance to visit the first annual Luxury & Supercar Weekend held at Vancouver, Canada. Although the setup was rather disappointing, I was impressed by the collection of cars that was on display. Most of the cars were privately-owned, with an exception of some new models. There was a nice mix of new, old, luxurious and insanely fast cars. Here is a look at some of the star attractions at the show.

Bugatti Veyron 16.4

interest!!. you gotta be kidding me. This is currently the hottest thread and we urge you to psot all pix asap. this is super cool.
btw, the yellow enzo is only registered as a FXX. it isn't the FXX. according to the FXX program, the so called owners cannot take the car out of the test tracks unless you go by the name Michael Schumacher. He did take it out to Top gear test track where the FXX was featured. The 670SV looks awesome and so does the mustang 500GT.
please put all pix on this thread.

I love the pic of my favorite car, however I prefer it in lime green. The Lamborghini Miura, the first ever supercar!

I love it, the Miura, the Dino, E-Type, F40, MC12, LP670 SV, FXX I love all of them, pure bliss.

The Veyron looks like a fat cow next to these beauties!
