Every year, Miami Art Week during Art Basel signifies a week full of wild parties, amazing art, outrageous fashion, beautiful people, and of course luxurious automobiles. THE COLLECTION was excited to be a part of many of the amazing events held throughout the city.
On Thursday, November 21, THE COLLECTION Maserati hosted a private reception for two hundred of its top clients to unveil the all-new 2014 Maserati Ghibli. Invited guests were pleasantly surprised when brand ambassador and NBA champion Dwyane Wade joined President and CEO Ken Gorin in revealing this all-new, highly anticipated sports sedan.
THE COLLECTION is proud to participate in the 43rd Annual Miami International Auto Show held at the Miami Beach Convention Center. The 2013 Show began this past Friday, November 8th, at the Miami Beach Convention Center. The show opened to the public Friday afternoon and will continue to welcome our fellow car lovers, automobile fanatics and enthusiasts until Sunday, November 17th. THE COLLECTION is proud to again display Ferrari, Aston Martin and McLaren in ‘Million Dollar Alley,’ while also supporting Audi, Porsche, Maserati, and Jaguar on the main floor. Ferrari’s latest model, the FF has the standard V12 engine, but features two additional seats in the rear making it a fully functioning four seater. The FF also features a spacious hatchback which is yet another incredible bonus. Aston Martin also boasts some special displays as they share the floor with the specially featured Vanquish Volante and the V12 Vantage. Displayed in Ocellus Teal Blue, the Volante is making its very first ever Auto Show debut here in Miami. And although not available until the beginning of 2015, the Vantage turns heads and draws you in with it’s sizzling Volcano red paint job. Of very special mention this year is the all-new Maserati Ghibli that Miami has been anxiously awaiting. Starting at just $65,600, Italian vehicles have never been so approachable, yet untouched in terms of luxury and lifestyle– there is simply nothing else like it. THE COLLECTION McLaren displays also wowed the audience yet again this year as they viewed two Spiders – one in
Volcano red and the other in classic White. This year’s show is bursting with
excitement and surprises – you won’t want to miss the stunning sights &
action packed displays waiting for you at the Miami International Auto Show.
Miami International Auto Show runs daily from 2pm – 9pm through 11/15, with extended hours of 11am – 11pm on 11/16, and 11am – 9pm on the final day, 11/17. Tickets can be purchased at: http://www.sfliautoshow.com/
This past Saturday, November 2nd, THE COLLECTION Jaguar hosted a driving event starting at THE COLLECTION in a caravan escort over to Key Biscayne. Approximately twenty Jaguar owners arrived at THE COLLECTION at 10:30 a.m., and left at 11 a.m. on a scenic tour over to the key.
On October 26th, THE COLLECTION hosted exclusive private viewings for the McLaren P1™, the ground-breaking brand’s latest and most prestigious model to date. The McLaren P1™ is the ultimate expression of McLaren’s engineering expertise. It is intelligent, adaptive, and blisteringly quick. The million dollar exotic, hybrid automobile was unveiled through personal one-on-one appointments accompanied by caviar, lobster tails, and champagne.
Yesterday, our Brand Ambassador, Dwyane Wade, launched his highly anticipated video, “Journey to 3.” This documentary was brought to the public via communications from Wade’s Facebook page and appropriately debuted at 3 p.m. sharp on his website, www.dwyanewade.com.
This upcoming October 26, THE COLLECTION Audi will host our very first test drive event for Audi’s latest line of TDI® vehicles. Cleaner than old-school diesel vehicles and more fuel efficient, Audi’s TDI® models are the future for automobiles in the 21st century. The TDI® models run off of 85% gasoline and 15% diesel, allowing for more energy and less time at the gas pump. The event will be catered following the futuristic style of the TDI® automobiles. Guests can sip mocktails and snack on hors d’oeuvres as they await their turn to be the first to test drive one of the TDI® models. After comparing the drive between standard Audi models and TDI® models, attendees will receive a $25 gas card. Be sure to stay on the lookout for Audi’s latest line of TDI® models – one place you definitely won’t find them is at the gas pump.
With last night’s preseason opener victory against the Atlanta Hawks, we can’t wait for what is in store for the Miami Heat this year! Led by our brand ambassador Dwyane Wade, we are so proud of all that the team has accomplished. THE COLLECTION was also proud to be a part of the past two championship victory parades, supplying a fleet full of white hot vehicles from Jaguar, Audi, Porsche, Aston Martin, Ferrari, Maserti and McLaren. As we drove through downtown Miami to the sound of thousands of screaming fans, we couldn’t have felt more connected to our city. Check out the video below to relive last year’s parade. Can YOU feel the heat?
