The McLaren Artura

McLaren Ushers in a Brighter Future with their Fabulous New Hybrid Supercar

8

VIRANI REAL ESTATE ADVISORS


eeping in line with their promise to go fully hybrid for their entire family of cars, McLaren just launched their fabulous new Artura. The McLaren Artura is the first model built on the new McLaren Carbon Lightweight Architecture. Weighing only 3,153 pounds, it is said to be the lightest and fastest hybrid supercar currently on the market.

K

Powered by a newly designed twin-turbocharged V6, the revolutionary high-performance hybrid supercar marks the beginning of a new era for both McLaren Automotive and the wider supercar segment — pushing the boundaries for speed and lightweight carbon technology. Artura is a distillation of every attribute inherent in a McLaren, combined with faster throttle response, lower emissions and the ability to run in pure EV mode. Ahead of 2021 Formula 1 season, CEO of McLaren, Zak Brown claimed that “ensuring the long-term health of the sport means recognizing our responsibility to sustainability: embedding it in every decision we make and action we take.” He further said that “we remain committed to leading the sustainability agenda in F1; working closely with Formula 1 to ensure we have a positive impact on the world we live in and achieve our and the series’ aim of being carbon net zero by 2030.”

604.913.1000

Artura’s breathtaking performance figures combined with its zero emission and whisper-quiet run on purely electric mode is a testimony to that statement. This masterpiece on wheels can soar from zero to 100 km/h in just 3.0 seconds and hit a top speed of 330 km/h. Output of the engine alone is rated at 577 hp at 7,500 rpm and 431 pound-feet of torque. It is designed with full plug-in hybrid capability and can be charged to an 80% level in just 2.5 hours. The engineering artistry beneath the Artura's skin is complemented by its exterior design, which gives the car a sleek ‘shrink-wrapped' appearance. Conceived to optimize aerodynamic performance, as well as cooling, it is driven by the McLaren design principle: 'everything for a reason'. A futuristic looking two-tone cockpit is built around the driver, with the driving experience enhanced through a new digital instrument cluster mounted to the steering column, so it moves with the steering wheel. Starting price for the Artura is $280,000 CAD. For more information please visit Mclaren Vancouver on 1711 W 2nd Avenue, Vancouver. Phone 604.731.9332 or visit www.mclarenvancouver.com.

Hublot's Stunning New Bi-Axial Tourbillon ublot once again demonstrates its technological prowess in the horology industry with its newly minted collection of MP-09 Tourbillon Bi-Axis 3D carbon time pieces.

H

The new Hublot MP-09 Tourbillon Bi-Axis beats to the rhythm of the HUB9009.H1.RA manual-winding, mechanical calibre with a 5-day power reserve. Its uniquely designed dial allows you glimpses at the inner workings of the in-house made calibre and the fascinating double rotation of its two-axis tourbillon. This exceptional bi-axial tourbillon makes a full rotation every minute for the first axis and a second rotation every 30 seconds for the second axis, resulting in a hypnotic double rotation that is unique to this collection. The MP-09 Tourbillon Bi-Axis watches come with an unusually large case measuring 49mm x 17.95mm in dimensions, designed to fit in that 3D movement. The skeleton reveals the beating heart of the watch. Hublot uses hightech 3D carbon architecture for these watches. 3D Carbon is a material created by weaving fibres on three planes and Hublot has mastered the art of working with it, sculpting it to form curves, angles and inclined planes of a rare complexity, whilst always guaranteeing its water resistance and durability. Carbon also offers the new MP-09 a significant weight saving, accentuating the sensation of a piece with an extreme look and a unique complication that is as light as a feather on your wrist. The new MP-09 family of watches are available in a range of appealing colours. Four radically different approaches with solution-dyed 3D carbon cases that have matching structured rubber straps, hands and hour markers. As Hublot CEO, Ricardo Guadalupe, explains: “These four editions in blue, red, yellow and green, which are each limited to eight pieces, represent one of the highest technological peaks we have reached. Once again, we have pushed back the limits for carbon and tourbillon technology.” For more information or to view this collection check out Hublot Vancouver on 1080 Alberni Street, Vancouver.

Acquafarina

Restaurateur Fabri Foz takes Vancouver's Fine Dining Scene to new heights

F

abri Foz is recreating the lost 'art of dining' with a bold ’no phone’ policy in his hottest new fine dining restaurant, Acquafarina.

Located in downtown Vancouver at the northwest intersection of West Georgia and Homer, Acquafarina was originally a bank. A $6.9 million dollar rebuild and a Sicilian inspired redesign has transformed the place into a magnificent upscale Italian restaurant.

36

With 200+ seats, Acquafarina offers a weekly tasting menu of elegantly prepared Italian dishes using locally sourced ingredients. The menu is carefully curated by Italian born Chef Valerio Pescetelli, who is known to have trained with the Gordon Ramsay team at the French Michelin starred restaurant "The Savoy Grill". The rotating tasting menus feature six to seven courses with delicious wine pairings.

VIRANI REAL ESTATE ADVISORS


Owned by Vancouver based Restaurateur, Fabri Foz, who also owns Yaletown's popular Per Se Social Corner, this 'reservation only' (they actually lock the doors, so no walkins) fine dining restaurant is an embodiment of his Italian heritage. From the Sicilian inspired dishes to the alluring décor, the space is a time capsule of sorts. Fabri's 'no phone', 'no photo' policy ensures that guests are able to soak in the unique experience and savour the meticulously crafted dishes.

The interior space imparts a grandiose feeling with imposing high ceilings and intricate wood panels. The bank vault has been converted into an impressive 8000 bottle wine cellar with over 1,500 labels. The restaurant also proudly displays two gorgeous red pizza ovens imported from Italy. Among the things to look out for is the restaurant’s grappa collection, said to be the most extensive in the city. Acquafarina Vancouver is located on 425 W Georgia Street, Vancouver.
