Seeing a quarter-million dollar car in Naples, Florida is no rare occurrence, nor is spotting several of them lining the beautiful street of 5th avenue south on an average day. On Saturday February 14th however, the Ferrari Club of Naples hosted it’s annual car show on 5th avenue bringing over 400 stunning automobiles to the downtown shopping district. The weather was beautiful throughout the event until mid-afternoon when an ominous fog rolled in just as the show was winding down. The event benefited Eden of Florida, a home and center for children and adults with autism. Last year the event raised nearly $50,000 for the organization.

Amongst the cars displayed were representations from Ferrari, Lamborghini, Maserati, Bentley, Aston Martin, Lotus, Rolls Royce, Porsche, and more. There were also sections designated for the Corvette Club of Naples, the West Coast Muscle Car Club, and the Porsche Club of Naples.

Every event has that handful of cars that seem to steal the show. This show was no different as the Maserati MC12, Ferrari Enzo, and Koenigsegg CCX (recently shown at Palm Beach Supercar Weekend) drew crowds of spectators and photographers consistently throughout the day. I myself was most drawn to the Maserati MC12 as this was the first time I had seen one of these gorgeous cars up close in person.  The rare Lamborghini LM002 (pictured above) with a chameleon paint job was also an attention grabber.

Several car dealerships had displays this year including Ferrari of Tampa, Autoquest (located in Fort Myers, a half hour north of Naples), Lamborghini of Miami, The Collection of Ft. Lauderdale, Maserati of Central Florida, Bentley of Naples, and a local tuning shop Debold Performance. Surprisingly our local exotic dealership, Naples Motorsports, was not present as they have been in years past. The dealerships that did have cars on display however brought in some very nice examples of what they have available for purchase. The Collection of Ft. Lauderdale for example brought out a Porsche Carrera GT, a Rolls Royce Phantom, a Jaguar XJ220, and a Lotus Exige.

Exotic car shows such as this are always exciting, but when they take place in your own town they become that much more enjoyable. The Ferrari Club of Naples has yet again put on a fantastic show in the heart of our beautiful downtown district and all of us at Exotics and Luxury are excited to attend next year.

    We are sorry we didn’t make the show this year. Naples Motorsports was in the process of moving into our new showroom at 1250 Airport Road South. We have over 50 exotics in stock and it would have been nice to be at the show. Anyone in town please stop by and visit our indoor showroom!

    The appropriately named Inn on 5th, is on the same street as the show (literally right in the middle of it). Any hotel in Naples city limits is within walking distance though.

    It’s on Fifth Ave in Naples. You can’t miss it, the show literally runs up and down the entire street.
