TECH TALK: THE DEZER COLLECTION

SUPER CAR ROOM UNVEILED AT THE DEZER COLLECTION

As a certified car lover, I always enjoy the opportunity of spending time with cars and with people who enjoy them as much as I do. Luckily, I was able to do that this past Saturday at the Dezer Collection on 146th Street in North Miami. I was there for the unveiling of the brand new Super Car Room, which was hosted by Michael Dezer, an Israeli-Born, New York real estate developer and founder of Dezer Properties.



The night started off with a brief meet-and-greet in the entrance room where the Mahindra Formula E Racing Team of India and special guests waited in anticipation.


  



As we roamed the museum, it was a match made in heaven. The event was a merge of fashion, tech, design and art. There was a huge “Super Car Room” mural made by the awesome London native INSA, a graffiti artist who created the Gif-iti app. With the use of his app, you can point your phone towards one of his murals and see it move! You can even view one of his murals from space when using the app. That is innovation at its best!

After about an hour of roaming the museum, we were invited to have dinner in preparation for the unveil. Dezer and others said a few words and then the curtains were pulled.
































From a Lamborghini Diablo to a Porsche Carrera GT, the collection was impressive. Yet the vehicles that caught everyone's eyes was first, the 650hp Mercedes-Benz Mclaren SLR 722 Edition. The Benz is a more hardcore version to the original SLR. You add 33 more horses and a stiffer suspension and you'll create the perfect car for the weekend drive to the racetrack. A little fun fact is that the 722 nameplate is derived from the victory race won by the legendary Sterling Moss in the Mille Miglia in 1955. The car was a Mercedes 300 SLR with the starting number 722 (indicating he started the race at 7:22 a.m.). 







The next car is non-other than the $2 million dollar, 1000BHP Bugatti Veyron. This car is different from just about every other car I have ever seen in the sense of presence it gives off.  



It was a perfect evening for the car-enthusiast. To see more of the iconic cars from the event, such as the Batmobile, the Aston Martin DB5 from 007 or the supercars like the Bugatti Veyron, visit the Dezer Collection.
