Drop Your Top 1

Soak Up the Summer Sun with Exotic Convertibles

Summer is the time to drop the top and cruise the road in your sexiest car, and Exotic Motorsports of Edmond has just the ticket. Exotic Motorsports of Edmond, 220 S. Kelly Ave., was the dream of Eliud Villareal and his brother, but in July 2018, he and his business partner, Braiden Bond, opened Exotic Motorsports on Kelly.

The business averages 10 to 12 exotic car sales a month. Although pre-owned, the cars all come to the store looking as if they are brand-new.

“We have anything from old classic cars to new or exotic cars. A lot of these cars are on consignment,” Eliud says.

With brands like Ferrari, Lamborghini and Audis, finding the perfect summer convertible is easy.

“Summer is all about the open top,” Eliud says. “You can enjoy the road, hear the cool sounds of the car and look cool doing it.”

Besides selling and finding dream cars for clients—as well as servicing and repairing on-site—Exotic Motorsports is mostly about making a car enthusiast’s dream come true.

Eliud shared his top picks for summer 2019.

2011 Audi R8 V10 Spyder

This 2011 Audi Rd V10 Sypder comes in silver over a red interior and boasts of the same motor as the 5.2 L V10 Lamborghini Gillardo, making it a cool and impressive-sounding car.

With LED headlights and a carbon-fiber interior, this vehicle’s leather has been injected with colored pigments that can reduce surface temperatures by up to 68 degrees.

“I really like the sound of this car,” Eliud says. “It sounds exotic and Italian. Even though its a German car, it has an Italian motor.”

The Audi is available at $85,000.

2016 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 3LZ

This black beauty is a classic that also comes with a carbon fiber package and a Z07 performance package. The black interior complements the exterior, which also has a clear bra on the front to protect it from rock chips.

Prepare for speed with this hot rod, Eilud says.

“It’s fast! It has 650 horsepower and only 2,700 miles on it,” he says.

With its epic performance, advanced features and easy-to-drive nature, the 2016 Chevrolet Corvette just might be the world’s best sports-car bargain at $72,000.

2013 Ferrari 458 Spider

This epic piece of machinery has been called “the most complete Ferrari I have ever driven” by some car critics, and it’s easy to see why. It comes with a 570-horsepower V8 engine, seven-speed transmission and rear wheel drive, but it’s really the color that makes this unique car stand out.

While Ferraris are known for their striking red color, this one is in Grigio Ingrid, named after iconic Hollywood bombshell Ingrid Bergman.

“Ingrid Bergman’s husband wanted a one-off car for her, so he contacted Ferrari founder Enzo Ferrari to create a 375 MM for her,” Eiud says. “She picked out the color, and Ferrari named it after her. It’s a really unique color, and the Chicolata interior accents it very well.”

This vehicle runs $199,000.
