THE FAST AND THE FURIOUS ON VIEW IN YOUR BACKYARD
Lamborghinis and Ferraris and Maseratis— Oh, my! These are just some of the eyepopping vehicles you’ll see on display at the exhilarating Caffeine & Exotics car show held the third Sunday of each month in the parking lot of Lenox Square mall. Wander in and you can ogle some 200 top-of-the-line, tricked-out Aston Martins, BMWs, Bentleys and more from private owners from metro Atlanta and all over the Southeast wanting to show off their sweet rides. Bruce Piefke, the CEO of High Octane Events, which organizes the show, defines an “exotic” as “a production car produced in limited quantity that incorporates state-of-the-art materials, design and engineering for its era,” and notes that the value of the vehicles in the show is generally $100,000 to $500,000 each. “We had a Porsche 918 in the event recently with a sticker price of $1 million,” he says. Being able to peek inside and under the hood of more than $35 million worth of rare and exotic autos is bound to make a car lover out of anyone. – Jill Becker
