Ask anyone who lives in South Florida year-round how they’re doing, and the likely response will be somewhere along the lines of, “It’s the best day of my life.” The same goes for our staff and visitors at Prestige Imports: there’s very little to complain about, and there are no real drawbacks to living here.

From an automotive standpoint, however, there might be one: the heat can be hell on your car. So, since we’re not only in the business of selling beautiful cars, but also keeping them that way, let’s look at ways that sun and heat can damage your vehicle. (more…)

From random torrential rains to tropical storms and depressions, there will be times when rain comes on and makes roads more dangerous than they might seem.

While we’re certainly known around South Florida for our exceptional lineup of terrific exotic and import vehicles, our staff at Prestige Imports also has been known to enjoy its downtime. This often has been known to include trips to the Keys or a joyrides in one of our more notable models, but sometimes we just enjoy a quiet night at home.

Mercedes-Benz G-Class North Miami Beach FL

“If I were famous, what would I drive?” This is a question that maybe wouldn’t occur to you, but you’d probably be in the minority in this regard. And how do we know this? Quite simply, because we’ll frequently have visitors to Prestige Imports who remark they they’ve seen Celebrity X driving some sort of exotic vehicle, and they’re wondering if they can get their hands on one themselves.

Definition of an Exotic Car

Once a driver has graduated in their automotive adventure to the point where he or she is eyeing the inventory at Prestige Imports, there inevitably comes a point where the abundance of rare and curiosity-stoking models becomes a bit too much. Then, the questions begin. What’s quicker, the Aventador or the Huracan? What’s the top end for a Veyron? Why does seemingly every celebrity drive an AMG G63? And then, the most vexing and common question of all: What defines an exotic car as “exotic”? Let’s look at this last question closely. (more…)

Facts about Ferrari

Looking across the showroom at Prestige Imports, you find exotics from iconic nameplates such as Lamborghini, Mercedes-Benz, Porsche and Pagani.

When drivers visit our North Miami Beach exotic dealership with a Lamborghini Aventador on their minds, there’s generally very little that we need to offer in terms of verbal reinforcement. Put simply, a driver that shows up to ask about the iconic supercar, they’ve generally done their homework, and have likely driven by Prestige Imports on more than one occasion. That said, we’ll get to the zero-to-sixty time, the distinctive scissor doors and menacing style in just a moment. But first, we’d like to discuss the relationship that former NFL star Marshawn Lynch has with his Lamborghini Aventador, and his tangential relationship with velvet ropes. (more…)
