Also making its first appearance in Western Canada will be the McLaren Senna, one of the most widely anticipated supercars of 2019.

In an ode to the past, some of the finest original and restored vintage automobiles will be on display, such as the first new Toyota Supra to be produced in North America in 21 years. For fans of the Transformer cartoons and movies, making its first appearance will be Bumblebee, one of eight VW bugs used in the movie of the same name.

A very special 1980 Ford Econoline van will also be there: the Van of Hope that supported Terry Fox as he embarked on The Marathon of Hope almost 40 years ago.

If you’re looking to entertain the kids on Spring Break, let them run wild in the Volkswagen Children’s Play Care Centre while you explore the show floor.
