(Vancouver, March 18, 2018) There is no doubt that Vancouver is the land of the exotic vehicle. So much so that we have more exotic and luxury cars per capita than anywhere else in North America. And if we are auto-‐Mecca, there is one car which may be our king – meet the speed crushing supercar that is equally a design and mechanical marvel, the Koenigsegg Agera RS.
When the doors open to the 2018 Vancouver International Auto Show on March 28th, the car that may in fact, draw the most attention, is the Koenigsegg Agera RS hyper-car in the Weissach Group booth, located at the entrance of the event.
On display for the first time in Western Canada, the Agera RS is the fastest production car on the planet and owner of five current world speed records. The Agera RS will be on display throughout the Show, March 28 – April 1, at the Vancouver Convention Centre West.
Auto Show General Manager Jason Heard called the Agera vehicle showcase an indication of the love affair British Columbians have with supercars.
“We’re thrilled to welcome the Agera RS model as a 2018 Show feature,”says Heard. “British Columbians have a deep respect for all the vehicles that make up the supercar class, and the Agera RS is a car that is in high demand in this region.”
