Though home to some stunning automobiles, car dealerships aren't typically thought of as entertainment destinations. But automotive industry expert and real estate visionary Brett David changed that perception when he took over Prestige Imports 14 years ago, making it a globally recognized brand and amassing a substantial social media following.
David was thrust into the industry at the age of 19 after the sudden passing of his father, Irv, and was determined to honor his legacy. The company is now comprised of the first stand-alone Lamborghini facility in the United States, the No. 1 volume Audi dealership in the country the last five years and the largest supercar and hypercar showroom in North America. In fact, The result was becoming the youngest new car dealer in the U.S. with all types of iconic brands like Pardo, Midnight Express, VanDutch, Iguana, The Tecnomar for Lamborghini 63, Prestige Aviation, Prestige Auto Spa and Prestige Energy.
This arsenal of luxury vehicles caught the eye of SI Swimsuit, too. Prestige Imports provided a Lamborghini and Ferrari for the Hollywood, Fla., shoot with models Natalie Mariduena and Kate Bock in the 2021 issue. And this isn't Prestige Imports’ only foray into the world of entertainment. David developed an integrated brand strategy that gives his clientele unique access to concepts, experiences and innovations. For example, he created the Prestige Performing Art Pop-Up in the Miami Design District fused together with a curated collection of modern art and the most powerful supercars in the world. Not to mention, David's creative strategy has solidified him as a bonafide influencer with an Instagram following of over 160,000.
Of course, David wanted to use his success for good. That's why in 2011 he co-founded Ride2Revive with his sister, Brooke, fulfilling a dream to share their world of exotic supercars with children battling life-threatening diseases. And with his unique vision, there's bound to be more exciting experiences down the road.
