Festivals of Speed was founded in 2004. For the past 13 years, they have hosted three to four large-scale events each year. Their sole mission is to provide a an upscale atmosphere for car enthusiasts and collectors of automobiles, motorcycles, aircraft, yachts and various luxurious products can come together to enjoy a weekend with like minded individuals. Most of their events have been held in Florida. They are slowly starting to branch out of the state to other states that have properties that simulate the lifestyle of the individuals they want to attract to the events. This year was the first year Festivals of Speed has attended the great state of Georgia! They chose the Avalon, located in Alpharetta as their host for the event this year.
For a first year event and having a rain date, the turnout was amazing! We had an excellent time networking with like minded individuals and showcasing the services we offer. Check out some of the images we captured from the event below!
The Mercedes AMG Project One encompasses many technologies that you can see in Mercedes Benz's Formula 1 cars. This is basically a road legal Formula 1 car! Mercedes-AMG Project One has a top speed of 217+ mph and can accelerate to 124 mph in less than 6 seconds. If these numbers are true, that acceleration would exceed that of the Bugatti Veyron (0-120mph in 7.2 seconds) and the Porsche 918 (0-120mph in 6.7 seconds), while still maintaining air conditioning, two infotainment displays and a dock for your smartphone. The interior also takes styling cues from the F1 cars. Most noticeable features include the steering wheel and seats. We noticed there could potentially be an active spoiler / air brake from some of the release images. With a hefty price tag of $2.72M and 275 being produced, the chances of seeing one of these on the streets are slim to none! Hopefully we can get the change to spot one of these around the Atlanta car scene whenever they finally hit the streets.Key Features:
