For Brett David, owner and CEO of Prestige Imports and Lamborghini Miami, luxury cars are a way of life. At 19, he took over the family business, and 10 years later he’s just unveiled a lavish new showroom on Biscayne Boulevard, flush with more than $20 million in high-end cars. The car mogul, along with his sister, created Ride2Revive, a nonprofit that organizes a race day every January at the Homestead-Miami Speedway for children with life-threatening illnesses. David brings out his cars, and the kids get to ride in some of the world’s most elite vehicles. “Their smiles are worth more than just writing a check.”
Here are the car mogul’s six top gift picks for auto enthusiasts. Click here to see all of our experts’ suggestions.
