It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to understand the correlation between luxury cars and hot weather. Vancouver is heating up and it is not just the temperatures. The streets are humming with the motors of luxury cars and here are the best places to find them.
‘Luxury is a lifestyle’ and nothing says this than driving a big boxy Bentley. Sitting behind the wheel just makes you ooze riches, whether you have two pennies to rub together or not. Trick is, getting through those little sliding windows to get comfy in that front seat!

As the only Ferrari-Maserati dealer in BC, this location is staffed with those who live and breathe these luxury cars. Not only is the dealership ultra-modern in architecture but you could find yourself sitting for hours, drinking the espresso, debating Ferrari or Maserati, Maserati or Ferrari. Could go back and forth forever…

Love the Tesla dealership on Robson Street. Simplicity at its finest. There is one car inside. That’s all you need. Pick your colour, add a range of fit and finish requirements, pick your HEPA filter option, perhaps add a leather jacket and driving gloves from their accessories line and off you go. Almost as easy as ordering a pizza but without the carbs and with excellent customer service.

Historically, the pinnacle of luxury has been the Rolls Royce. The RR Bespoke Service encourages the personalization of the subtle features of your future luxury vehicle – such as choosing your door handles, the driver’s dials and treadplates – but also allows you to make an even bolder statement by having a paint colour developed especially for your taste or perhaps have the veneers crafted from a tree from your estate. Seriously.

Vancouver is vrooming with McLarens and it is getting noisy here. These cars have a Formula One history and are zooming everywhere. They are out having lunch and dinner, cruising fashionable shopping strips and are even invited to the best parties and never valet, preferring to park curbside so that humble public can selfie with them. They probably have more friends than you on Facebook!

Specialising in pre-owned luxury, London Motorcars offers the same quality and excellence that a dealership does but the selection is off the hook. Take all the luxury vehicles in this list and add Alfa Romeo, Audi, Jaguar, Lamborghini and Spyker, with an ever-changing selection. Secondhand is not second best.

The German automaker’s that designed and produced the first Porsche most likely had no idea the effect their creation would have on the world. From the spicy Cayenne to the sleek Spyder, the Porsche will always be sought after long after the others.

Ontario used to be the luxury car capital of Canada but Metro Vancouver has taken the title with McLaren’s being the ride of choice. It is no wonder, with tear down houses selling for millions over asking!
