Are you in the mood for a 2020 Bugatti Divo in a blazing red color? How about a 2018 Porsche GT2RS with green and black colorscape?
If these exotic cars are not what you had in mind, don’t worry, the owners of Atlantis Motor Group have a lot more in store for you, literally.
Their new 14,000-square-foot exotic auto showroom is the first one in Boca Raton. But owners Richard Weisman and Ken Gold are not deterred, as a matter of fact they are giddy at the prospect of bringing the most luxurious exotic cars (and race cars) to Boca Raton residents.
“There have been exotic car warehouses in Boca Raton, but not dealerships or a showroom like ours,” said Weisman, an exotic car aficionado, who owned an exotic car dealership in Caesar’s Palace in Las Vegas.
The exotic cars — some with names that you may not be able to pronounce — are sleek, curvy and seductive. So much so that they’re priced from $100,000 to $5 million.
“We can custom design any car to cater to the customer’s satisfaction – needs or wants,” said Gold.
You bet they can. Just ask Boca financier John.
“I purchased a Porsche GT2RS and a Lamborghini Huracan from Ken and Richard because they know more than anyone about exotic cars. The fact they’re opening a showroom in Boca Raton is a real treat for everyone in south Florida – not just for the quality of their vehicles – but for their commitment to excellence and industry knowledge,” he said.
Atlantis will also have an off-site service department to take care of your cars’ inner most mechanical details. According to the owners they have scouted the world for the best mechanics in the business.
There will be vintage Ferraris, Lamborghinis, Porsches, Rolls Royce’s, Bentleys, Maserati’s Aston Martins, McLarens, Bugatti’s and more.
AMG also has a motorsports division that caters to the gentleman racer, or collector seeking a rare and historic automobile or competition car.
“As a long-time vintage race car driver and avid Porsche enthusiast myself,” says Gold, “I have no doubt our clientele will be impressed with our lineup of competition cars.”
When you think of vintage (or gently used) luxury autos it’s common to think they come with a lot of miles. But not so, according to Gold and Weisman. “We have late model exotic cars with little or no miles. People often buy them as collectors’ items or as investments.”
If there is a specific exotic car you’re looking for and can’t find, just ask the guys at AMG – they’ll find it for you. They have both been in the exotic car business for many years and know where to find any car you can imagine (if it exists of course).
If you do have an exotic car and want to store it in the summer months they offer private climate-controlled storage as well. They also have track support and customization, as well as financing, insurance, parts and service.
The showroom will open in late February. The modern interior design is spacious and sleek to showcase its rarified autos that are the dream of many. The environment is the experience, and both Gold and Weisman are pros at the exotic auto ambience.
Weisman owned a local production company in Boca Raton in the 80’s. He started selling exotic cars in Ft. Lauderdale and was so successful that he thought he would push the limits of luxury by opening the only car dealer in Caesars Palace Forum Shops in Las Vegas. “Selling cars in Las Vegas was fun and we were successful at it.”
Gold was in the logistics end of the business, transporting exotic cars around the world. He is a well-known vintage race car driver and avid Porsche enthusiast. Gold owned a collection of Porsche 935 race cars and is considered one of the world’s top experts in 935’s.
“Whether you’re purchasing your dream vehicle or looking to upgrade or sell your current one, we have the expertise and resources to make those dreams a reality. We have vast networks that provide us with access to many exotic and luxury cars, parts and service that other dealers simply can’t provide.”
The exotic autos will be the main attraction, but the 14,000-square-foot, one-story showroom at 351 Yamato Road in Boca Raton will be the frame.
