Kimpton EPIC Hotel in Miami to Display Exclusive Hispano-Suiza Carmen Boulogne

Hispano-Suiza, a hyper-luxury electric car company, recently delivered its fully electric Carmen Boulogne model to its first American client—Miami car collector Michael Fux, who took delivery of the exclusive Hispano Suiza and will be displaying it through Sunday at the Kimpton EPIC Hotel in Miami, as part of the hotel serving as a brand ambassador for the company.

The bespoke unit was built to Fux’s own specifications and was one of the main attractions at the Amelia Island Concours d’Elegance, the high-profile automotive event. Hispano Suiza spent months customizing Fux’s dream car into reality following Fux’s tastes and preferences. The vehicle, with four electric engines, is capable of reaching 1,114 horsepower.

Only five Hispano-Suiza Carmen Boulognes will be made for a cost of about $1.8 million each, before enhancements. The purple shade of Fux’s Carmen Boulogne is called Ocean Song Rose. All the panels that shape the car’s bodywork are made of carbon fiber with a layer of Alutex.

“We are very proud to deliver this unique version of the Hispano Suiza Carmen Boulogne to our first client in the United States, and doing so on the occasion of the Amelia Island Concours d’Elegance allows us to show the world, and especially the American market, what Hispano Suiza can achieve,” says Miguel Suqué Mateu, Hispano-Suiza’s chairman, who personally delivered the car to Fux.

BIOGRAPHY

Drew Limsky joined Lifestyle Media Group in August 2020 as Editor-in-Chief of South Florida Business & Wealth. His first issue of SFBW, October 2020, heralded a reimagined structure, with new content categories and a slew of fresh visual themes. “As sort of a cross between Forbes and Robb Report, with a dash of GQ and Vogue,” Limsky says, “SFBW reflects South Florida’s increasingly sophisticated and dynamic business and cultural landscape.”

Limsky, an avid traveler, swimmer and film buff who holds a law degree and Ph.D. from New York University, likes to say, “I’m a doctor, but I can’t operate—except on your brand.” He wrote his dissertation on the nonfiction work of Joan Didion. Prior to that, Limsky received his B.A. in English, summa cum laude, from Emory University and earned his M.A. in literature at American University in connection with a Masters Scholar Award fellowship.

Limsky came to SFBW at the apex of a storied career in journalism and publishing that includes six previous lead editorial roles, including for some of the world’s best-known brands. He served as global editor-in-chief of Lexus magazine, founding editor-in-chief of custom lifestyle magazines for Cadillac and Holland America Line, and was the founding editor-in-chief of Modern Luxury Interiors South Florida. He also was the executive editor for B2B magazines for Acura and Honda Financial Services, and he served as travel editor for Conde Nast. Magazines under Limsky’s editorship have garnered more than 75 industry awards.

He has also written for many of the country’s top newspapers and magazines, including The New York Times, Washington Post, Los Angeles Times, Miami Herald, Boston Globe, USA Today, Worth, Robb Report, Afar, Time Out New York, National Geographic Traveler, Men’s Journal, Ritz-Carlton, Elite Traveler, Florida Design, Metropolis and Architectural Digest Mexico. His other clients have included Four Seasons, Acqualina Resort & Residences, Yahoo!, American Airlines, Wynn, Douglas Elliman and Corcoran. As an adjunct assistant professor, Limsky has taught journalism, film and creative writing at the City University of New York, Pace University, American University and other colleges.
