AVENTURA, Fla. (August 12, 2013) – In an exhilarating move for Turnberry Isle Miami, the Forbes four-star resort announces its partnership with the locally-based exotic car rental company Lou La Vie to produce the area’s first Turnberry Miami Concours, a Pan American event. Slated to take place April 25- 27, 2014, the definitive international automobile event will feature the world’s finest post-war sports and exotic cars staged on the property’s championship Raymond Floyd-designed golf course.
“We are excited to host Miami’s first-ever Concours d’Elegance event at our legendary South Florida property,” said Paige Koerbel, Managing Director of Turnberry Isle Miami. “This prestigious international event will be the first of its kind, attracting car connoisseurs and aficionados from across the Americas with a common bond – a love for fine automobiles.”
Turnberry Miami Concours, a Pan American event is scheduled to take place from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Sunday, April 27. The Concours will be open to the public through general and VIP admission, and will provide spectators with a canvas of the most select, unique and specialty collector cars surrounding the resort’s signature 18-hole island Soffer course with its 64-foot waterfall. A panel of noted collectors and leading authorities will judge the cars, followed by an awards ceremony at the culmination of the weekend-long event.
Leading up to the premier car show, Turnberry Isle Miami and Lou La Vie will launch the inaugural Turnberry Miami Concours, a Pan American event with a variety of experiences for car collectors to enjoy over the weekend– including a kickoff golf tournament on the resort’s two 18-hole Raymond Floyd-designed championship courses on Friday, April 25. That same evening will boast a VIP and welcome reception. Then Saturday, April 26, car collectors will be invited to participate in a “Track Day” at the Palm Beach International Raceway before heading back to Turnberry Isle Miami for a Charity Gala and Car Auction in the resort’s elegant ballroom.
“When we decided to bring this event to Miami, we immediately thought of Turnberry Isle Miami. Not only is it the only resort in the destination able to cater to the large, discerning crowds we’re expecting – up to 10,000 people - but the property itself is exquisite. We’re truly excited to offer event guests the opportunity to take advantage of the resort’s full range of world-class amenities through a display of the world’s most rare collection of prized cars,” said John Temerian, President of Lou La Vie. “This event will be an unparalleled opportunity for brand promotion, and we are currently in discussions with potential sponsors and partners.”

John Temerian, founder of the company, partnered with Jan Otto and DJ Irie of the Miami Heat to develop Lou La Vie after years of working within the ever-changing exotic automobile industry.
