Ugo Colombo: Miami Real Estate Titan

In addition to owning THE COLLECTION, Ugo Colombo has been busy advancing his real estate development efforts throughout Miami. Recently, Ugo Colombo’s CMC Group, along with Valerio Morabito, bought the Bay Harbor Continental site. Though a decision has not been announced on what development to this coastal site will entail, it was previously approved for a seven-story upscale condominium tower by its former owner. Prior to this project, Ugo Colombo and Valerio Morabito worked to develop a building known as Beach House 8 in Mid-Beach. This condominium tower stands ten floors tall and was completed in 2014.

An exciting update on one of the CMC Group’s other projects is at the Miami’s Brickell Flatiron Residential Tower. The grandeur of this building is stunning, with 64 floors of elegance that will be one of the United States’ tallest residential towers. The collection of penthouses on floors 50 through 64 will provide residents a top-tier experience, from exquisite furniture, to lofty ceilings and unreal views–and there are still units available.

In addition to spectacular real estate development, it was recently announced that Ugo Colombo’s The Collection would be expanding their product offerings to include Land Rover, located nearby the original location in a deal negotiated by Ugo Colombo and CMC Group. Ugo Colombo remains a prominent figure in Miami through his impact on the Miami skyline over the years. With no end in sight, residents of Miami and Coral Gables look forward to seeing more of the luxurious side Ugo Colombo has been able to bring out of Miami.

Jaguar Goes Electric

As the 50th anniversary marking the launch of the Jaguar XJ approaches, Jaguar has been reimagining this classic sedan. With more luxury car companies taking notes from Tesla’s success, Jaguar is following suit, announcing that the 2019 Jaguar XJ will be a hatchback electric vehicle. This newly redesigned car will have an aluminum frame and twin motors that power all-wheel drive. Jaguar intends on ensuring this car’s output rivals non-electric vehicles to keep with its sports car roots.

This electric vehicle’s range will take you over 300 miles before needing to be charged again. Although this is less than Tesla’s over 600-mile range on the newer models, the choice to cross over to a fully electric engine is unique when compared to other brands Jaguar competes with. It’s projected that electric vehicles and hatchbacks will surpass sedans in popularity in the coming years.

Though this vehicle doesn’t launch until late in 2018, THE COLLECTION carries the luxurious 2018 sedan model, with a range of colors and specs to choose from. The Ugo Colombo Miami dealership THE COLLECTION is Miami’s foremost luxury automotive dealership serving Aventura, Brickell, Coral Gables, Miami Beach.

The 2018 Alfa Romeo SUV

A two-liter, all-aluminum turbocharged, four-cylinder engine powers this triumphant SUV. The 2018 Alfa Romeo Stelvio Ti packs Italian flare and engineering into a sleek SUV frame. Alfa Romeo designed this automobile to be lightweight. They optimized speed and efficiency by using materials like carbon fiber and aluminum. The meticulously structured frame is evenly distributed across the front and rear axles, so you feel like you’re driving on a cloud.

The Stelvio Ti is named after the Stelvio pass, an incredibly challenging road to drive in the Italian Alps. This SUV is agile and controlled, both qualities one would need driving in such a place. Grab onto the heated steering wheel and strap in for a joyride. Feel free to take this machine on winding roads where SUV’s typically don’t perform well on. Slip into Dynamic driving mode and you’re on your way.

This SUV has a 280-horsepower engine at 5200 RPM. Going 0-60 in 5.4 seconds leaves other SUV’s in the dust, as most cannot reach that speed in under 6 seconds. With fuel economy at 28 highway MPG, this SUV can cruise for longer. Longer highway driving is a delight in Normal driving mode.

Alfa Romeo’s Giulia Named Car of the Year

AlfaRomeoCarOfTheYear

Motor Trend has recently named Alfa Romeo’s Giulia Car of The Year. This is a milestone for Fiat Chrysler, the Italian-American car company that has been working on introducing the perfect luxury car to an upscale market.

Motor Trend chose Giulia because it shines lustrously among the status quo of cars formulaically mass produced. “There is sorcery in this car,” remarked Motor Trend’s road test editor Chris Walton. This vehicle can cast a spell on its driver. One of the judges involved in this decision said, “This car saves the sport sedan market,” as it doubles as an exhilarating sports vehicle with lateral grip, and by adjusting the throttle, it becomes the prime way to get to and from work on the highway.

The Alfa Romeo Giulia is a well-equipped luxury sports vehicle that is more than just easy on the eyes. This impressive vehicle doesn’t disappoint when it comes to what’s under the hood with a 505-horsepower engine. The car comes with its own safety and security features that include Integrated Brake System, Forward Collision Warning Plus, Available Safety, Advanced driver assistance and much more.

Test drive this award-winning vehicle today at THE COLLECTION, the Ugo Colombo Miami dealership that houses several luxury vehicle brands.
