Icon Auto fulfills autobahn fantasies with a dapper fleet of pedigree cruisers that handle roads at high speeds. Clients can sweet talk the motor mistress of their dreams during a 24-hour date with a spacious Escalade, known for nabbing the attention of music-video producers while suavely persuading death-wishing bugs to reinvest in achieving their dreams. The Mercedes-Benz S550 Brabus jockeys for roadway domination with its seven-speed transmission and equine maneuverability of 382 horses. Set the bar far too high by scooping up a blind date in a Rolls-Royce Ghost or Ferrari F430 Spider, which can travel up to 186 miles per hour even when not pushed by a professional athlete or driven by a friendly chauffer.
Imagine a lifestyle in which you park a Ferrari at a private boat slip, slide onto a custom yacht, and ferry it across a waterway to a private island hosting a 20-room mansion modeled after an Italian villa. Though this may sound like a dream only attainable by the mega rich or an heir to a chocolate-fountain fortune, Imagine Lifestyles facilitates such lavish accommodations with a cavalry of luxury vehicles, vacation homes, and yacht charters. They specialize in auto rentals, entrusting cars from brands such as Ferrari, Lamborghini, Maserati, Rolls Royce, Bentley, Porsche, and BMW to drivers for as short as a half day or as long as several weeks. To shield these pristine and rare rides from the elements, they also deal in luxury vacation home rentals, ranging from beach mansions in Miami to chic lofts and high-rise penthouses. The service also charters air and sea transportation, including jets of all sizes and yachts for all occasions.
The award-winning acting coach and filmmaker Ralph Kinnard still offers classes for beginners and professionals at Miami Acting Studio. His acting workshops are based on the techniques of Lee Strassberg (he of Actor’s Studio fame), the father of modern acting. Each once-a-week session works to teach actors the basics and beyond, by building on their natural instincts, emotions and abilities, before taking risks on stage. The class work includes improvisation and scene development to help actors build their craft, and many of the Studio’s graduates find work have had success in television and movies. Best of all: the first class is always free.
Outfitted with backseat TVs, stereos, and divider windows, Status Limousine's fleet of vehicles elegantly eases transportation for travel or leisure. For two hours, guests can populate the Lincoln stretch limo's 10 passenger seats as they journey to and from a fine restaurant or skip from nightspot to nightspot. The bottle of champagne augments arrivals with chilled sips of a spirited beverage and a cork that riders can break up into crumbs to leave a trail back to the limo.
