The 100th Anniversary Vancouver International Auto Show will debut concepts and never before see vehicles as well as host displays featuring celebrated vehicles from years gone by!
CANADIAN DEBUT OF THE FAMED ‘HOONITRUCK’
When Ken Block set out to create the ultimate truck build to complement his infamous Hoonicorn (shown for the first time in Canada at the 2019 Vancouver Auto Show), he started with a 1977 Ford F-150. Block’s Hoonitruck is powered by a custom-tuned Ford Performance V6 EcoBoost engine lifted directly out of the Ford Racing Ford GT Le Mans development program. Making 914hp at 7,400rpm and 702 ft-lbs at 6,450 rpm, the engine is a snarling, billet-aluminum menace.
The build, two years in the making, features some direct tie-ins to current Ford F-150 products with hand-shaped aluminum bodywork (identical to the military-grade aluminum that Ford uses currently), Ford Pass remote start integration and even a functional backup camera/tow hitch setup.
Presented by SONAX Canada the Hoonitruck will be on display March 25-29 in their booth. This will be the first time the Hoonitruck has been shown North of the border. As a proud sponsor of the Hoonigan Racing Division, SONAX has more than 65 years in the production of premium car detailing and paint car innovation.
Featuring a mid-engine and hardtop convertible for the first time in its 67 year history, the highly anticipated new C8 Corvette Stingray has 495 horsepower and goes zero-to-60 in 3 seconds. This sports car is so much more than Next Generation – it’s next level!
This beast will be on display in the Chevrolet space on the lower level.
With a twin-turbocharged V12 engine, a world-first Carbotanium Chassis and a total power output of 764 HP at 5500 rpm – the Pagani Huayra Roadster is named after a South American wind god and needs no introduction.
Only 100 of these beasts were produced and you can meet the Pagani Huayra Roadster IRL at the Vancouver International Auto Show, March 25 – 29 at the Vancouver Convention Centre.

An open-air roadster that is an artful reflection of the LC coupe, the design goal of the Convertible Concept was the expression of “ultimate beauty.” From the rake of the windshield to the smooth contours of the rear deck lid that houses the convertible top, every line on the LC Convertible concept was drawn to evoke an emotional response. A stunning design from every angle, the LC Convertible concept stands as an aspirational halo vehicle for the entire Lexus lineup.
This stunning vehicle will be on display in the Lexus space on the lower level at the Vancouver International Auto Show.
This 515 kW (700 hp) racer features a body reminiscent of the legendary Porsche 935/78 and has been produced in a limited number of 77 units.
The race car’s technology for club racing events and private training on racetracks is based on the 911 GT2 RS* high-performance sports car. Like its historic predecessor, most of the body has been replaced or supplemented by carbon-fibre composite parts (CFRP). With its streamlined extended rear, the 935 reaches a length of 4.87 metres. The width of the exclusive clubsport racer measures 2.03 metres.
The spectacular aerodynamics is a completely new development and pays tribute to the Porsche 935/78 Le Mans race car, which fans dubbed “Moby Dick” due to its elongated shape, massive fairings and white base colour. See this vehicle in a Special 100th Anniversary Feature.
