PISTAS & PALM TREES
Generations come and go... We saw that there was a demand for a new generation of exotic car rallies and we had to to deliver. Exotic Car Showdown is our annual rally that takes place across South Florida. It is a way to escape woes of winter while meeting like-minded enthusiasts. Drivers visit us from across the country and even Canada to partake in 3 Days of exhilarating drives and daring destinations.
EXOTIC CAR SHOWDOWN 2021
In November 2021 we came back with 66 exotics. The rally began Friday evening in November with a happy hour registration and dinner. Guests enjoyed a 4-Course meal on the docks of YOT in Fort Lauderdale with a stunning view of mega yachts in Safe Harbor Marina.
We began Saturday at Banyan Airplane Hangar with exotics and jets galore sprawled out along the tarmac. Breakfast was served inside the hangar as drivers mingled while snapping shots of our insta-worthy setup. We finished the morning with a drivers meeting. Then drove through the hangar on our way to rally across the legendary Alligator Alley. We made our infamous quick stop at the Miccosukee Service Plaza before we were off to the brand new Ferrari of Naples dealership. A lunch spread was served sprinkled in between a fleet of Ferraris. Along with lunch there were blackjack and roulette tables and hand rolled Cuban cigars.
Saturday evening we decided to switch it up and check out the new hot spots in Fort Lauderdale. Police escorted our crew as we parked along the historic Riverwalk along the Nu River in between Society and The Wharf. As guests walked along the river and in between the lines of exotics they were greeted for dinner at Rivertail. Following dinner was an afterparty at The Wharf where we dominated the entire VIP section and eventually made our way to LIV.
Sunday we took it easy with a late start to lunch and a pool party at DAER Dayclub at the Hardrock Guitar Hotel in Hollywood.
EXOTIC CAR SHOWDOWN 2020
In February 2020 pre-pandemic we wrangled 84 exotics from Porsches to Pistas! The rally began Friday evening with a happy hour registration and dinner. Guests enjoyed a 5-Course meal from Boatyard in Fort Lauderdale with a gorgeous view of yachts galore in the Venice of America.
We began Saturday at in the infamous We Are Curated in Downtown Miami. While having breakfast, everyone got to peruse some of We Are Curated’s incredible inventory. For the true car aficionados, We Are Curated is the ultimate adult playground…or better yet, museum. The best part is all the cars are for sale. After was our drive South to Key Largo, in the beautiful Florida Keys began. The 18 mile stretch along Route 1 is a bucket list drive to say the least. The views of the crystal blue water and scattered islands across the ocean is stunning. The road is notorious for constant traffic since it is only 2 lanes.. for a brief yet memorable moment some of our participants decided this was the perfect opportunity for a quick photoshoot. Lunch was served beach side at Gilbert's Resort with 360 views of the ocean surrounding some of the most rare supercars in the country.
Saturday evening participants were welcomed to the infamous nightclub E11even Miami for dinner and an afterparty downstairs. Sunday morning began with brunch at Diamonds by Raymond Lee before we took off to rally across Alligator Alley. Lunch was served beachfront at the Hilton Marco Island Beach Resort.
