Here we are, at the very end of another year. Despite its challenges, I believe that 2022 was better than 2021, which was better than 2020! 2022 marked the year I started Adventuris, the result of 5 years of M Gruppe experience, and the personal changes resulting from the pandemic, as was probably the case for most of you. My focus naturally shifted from "cars-first" to "people who love cars-first", and the experiences we can have together. With Adventuris, the idea is to facilitate access to special moments and unique experiences; we are not a car club/community, which all of us already have access to locally where we live. The experience I am most excited about right now is the "Norway Driving & Flying the Fjords", which 10 of us will enjoy in June 2023, and two other private groups traveling separately in July. Due to weather constraints, the season goes from early June to late September, and dates are customizable. I am also hoping to offer a domestic experience next year.
In 2022 I also added my first ever Porsche 911 (997.2) to the collection, thanks to my dear friend Maria Moncada-Alaoui, who has supported me and my automobile passion for well over a decade. Through the exclusive arm of Sonic Automotive, which owns BMW of West Houston, Maria is also helping me add another first to my stable (TBA). She is not only able to feed our BMW addiction (the new XM is available to pre-order!), but also able to help us get our hands on something exotic and different for a while - because life is too short not to do it! To mention some of the cars she can currently get you:
Aston Martin DBS Superleggera
Bentley (Bentayga, Continental, Flying Spur, Mulsanne)
Ferrari (F12, GTC4Lusso, SF90, 458, 488, 812, Portofino, Roma)
Lamborghini (Aventador 700 / 740, Huracan EVO, Urus)
McLaren (720S, 765)
Mercedes Benz (SLR McLaren, AMG GT Black Series)
Porsches (GT2 RS, GT3, Speedster, Turbo S Lightweight)
Rezvani (Hercules 6x6)
Rolls-Royce (Cullinans, Phantoms, Dawn, Ghost, Wraith)
I want to close this post by thanking all of you for your continued support and presence in my life. It truly means a lot to me!
For 2023 all I want to wish you is health because, as I like to say, everything else can be achieved by a sane mind and a healthy body. Do remember to enjoy your friends and beloved ones; we never know how long we will have them with us. For the same reason, do remember to reward yourself and enjoy your own life as well.
We can’t control IF we spend time, only what we spend it ON.
