The unveiling of the Super Car Room elevates not only the visibility of the already known car collection, but also sets it as the preeminent destination for Events in South Florida
Miami, Florida (PRWEB) March 25, 2015
The Miami Auto Museum at The Dezer Collection has again exceeded expectations with the launch of its unique Supercar Exhibit and Event Room on Saturday, March 14th. The room was “officially” unveiled during a VIP star-studded evening including Formula E Mahindra drivers Mr. Karun Chandhok and Mr. Bruno Senna, nephew of the late Ayrton Senna. Initially, the exhibit's line up will consist of ten supercars; a Bugatti Veyron, a Shelby Ultimate Aero TT, a Lamborghini Diablo, a Porsche Carrera GT, a De Tomaso Pantera, a Ferrari Testarossa, a one-of-a-kind Dodge Viper SRT, a Mercedes Benz 722 SLR AMG, a futuristic ETV: Extraterrestrial Vehicle and as a special feature, the TRON Superbike.
The “soiree” kicked off with a cocktail reception leading to the “official” ribbon cutting ceremony, followed by a formal gourmet sit down dinner, and keynote speakers included Mr. Michael Dezer, Founder of the Miami Auto Museum, and Mahindra Racing Executives. World famous graffiti artist INSA, who is the only graffiti artist to have had his work photographed from space, custom painted one of the Supercar room’s walls with his unique brand of 3D graffiti (Gif-itti). “The unveiling of the Super Car Room elevates not only the visibility of the already known car collection, but also sets it as the preeminent destination for Events in South Florida” stated Elo, about Mr. Dezer’s extensive automotive collection, which encompasses multiple locations across the USA including Las Vegas, Ft. Lauderdale (coming Fall 2015) and New York (coming Summer 2016). After 10 years building up the hugely successful London Motor Museum, and hosting “Ultimate Wheels” on UK’s History Channel (a Property of A+E Networks) Elo is “crossing the pond” to replicate his success with the Miami Auto Museum.
The launch of the Supercar Room was purposely set to occur during the first ever Formula E Miami Grand Prix. Formula E is a new FIA single-seater championship and the world's first fully-electric racing series. The inaugural season kick-started in Beijing in September 2014 and runs until June 2015, competing in 10 of the world's leading cities including Miami, Berlin and London. A total of 10 teams, each with two drivers, race on temporary city-center circuits creating a unique and exciting series designed to appeal to a new generation of motorsport fans. Formula E also aims to represent a vision for the future of the motor industry, serving as a framework for R&D around the electric vehicle, accelerating general interest in these cars and promoting clean energy and sustainability.
