Driveway: Previewing Vancouver’s Supercar Weekend; Reviewing the 2016 Subaru Forester

This week, Keith Morgan looks forward to seeing the Pagani Huayra on display... Alexandra Straub takes a Subaru through the Maritimes

In this week’s Driveway, editor Keith Morgan previews this weekend’s Luxury & Supercar event in Vancouver, at the city’s VanDusen Botanical Garden.

“The park will again provide the perfect backdrop for a fashionable garden party atmosphere with Canada’s largest display of fine jewelry, luxury hospitality tents, alongside pop-up restaurants, and wine and cocktails provided by some of Vancouver’s best restaurants and bars.”

Some of the supercars on display will include a LaFerrari, a Magnum Mk5, and a Pagani Huayra – “all new (for) 2016, powered by a 720-horsepower twin turbo, the fastest car to go around the Top Gear test track will dazzle.”

Also this week, for Driveway‘s cover story, Alexandra Straub takes the Subaru Forester on a three-day drive through the Maritimes:

“There’s a pleasant discomfort about stepping foot into uncharted territory. But there’s also warm welcome of being wrapped up in the arms of a vehicle that feels like home.”
