Maserati of Fort Lauderdale Donates its 10,000th Vehicle to Local Community Charity

April 5th, 2022 by

Maserati of Fort Lauderdale celebrates its latest achievement: selling 10,000 Maserati vehicles throughout its auto group’s history. In honor of this momentous occasion, Maserati of Fort Lauderdale and its owners Garrett and Patricia Hayim are giving back to its local community.

After a 12-year absence, Maserati returned to the US market in 2001. When Maserati returned, US dealers were unsure how the customers would respond. Unsurprisingly, Maserati of Fort Lauderdale had an amazing client base that supported Maserati’s effort to excellence.  Our store and clients have seen the metamorphosis of Maserati over the past few years.

“Without our clients’ support for the brand, none of this would be possible.” – Garrett Hayim, the dealership’s owner and principal.

As a result, Maserati of Fort Lauderdale owners Garrett and Patricia Hayim want to celebrate by donating a vehicle to charity.

Maserati Over the Years

When Maserati came back to the US the model range expanded with the 2001 Spyder. The Spyder featured the first Maserati engine created in Maranello. Coincidentally, the Spyder was the star of a charity auction for the Italian American Cancer Foundation. Almost 21 years later, Maserati of Fort Lauderdale is donating their 10,000th Maserati to Nicklaus Children’s Hospital’s Diamond Ball Gala. In 2003, Maserati introduced the GranTurismo and the re-imagined Quattroporte. In addition, Maserati partnered with Pininfarina again. The introduction of the redesigned Quattroporte helped to significantly increase Maserati’s sales. Over the years, Maserati has designed authentic Italian sports cars with utmost attention to craftsmanship. In the recent past, Maserati has unveiled its two newest vehicles: the MC20 and the Grecale. Without reservation, these newest vehicles will help to drive Maserati into the future.

Maserati Legacy: Concept Cars

Longtime US Maserati fans will remember the stunning concept cars that Maserati designed. In 2005, Maserati celebrated the 75th birthday of Pininfarina’s founder with the Birdcage 75. The Birdcage 75 imitated the iconic Maserati Birdcage. The Birdcage played an important part during the 1960s era of motorsports. The concept version featured futuristic elements that would make it any collector’s dream car. In 2014, Maserati designed another concept car: the Alfieri. The Alfieri is named after one of Maserati’s founders. Alfieri concept car celebrates the brand’s centenary. Maserati unveiled the Alfieri at the 2014 Geneva Auto Show. This concept car proved that Maserati is a sports-car company at its core.

Maserati’s Best Selling Vehicles: Ghibli and Quattroporte

Of course, Maserati wouldn’t be successful without its production vehicles. In particular, the Ghibli and the Quattroporte. These vehicles are some of Maserati’s best-selling vehicles. The Ghibli is a perfect combination of design, sports performance, and comfort. It features simple, elegant lines, enhanced by the use of exquisite materials. Defined by sculpted lines, its form generated a sense of motion. A grand-tourer with unmistakable refinement and unrivaled performance, the Ghibli is quick, responsive, and luxurious, undoubtedly drawing on all of Maserati’s experience and history. The sixth-series Maserati Quattroporte came from the great Quattroporte tradition, maintaining an unmistakable, timeless silhouette in a larger, even more capable design. Conceived from a fresh, modern perspective, it combined the luxurious soul of a limousine and the spirit of a grand-touring sports car.

Maserati of Fort Lauderdale’s Contributions to Charity

Maserati of Fort Lauderdale and owners Garrett & Patricia Hayim constantly support philanthropic activities and charity.  With every Maserati purchased or leased, Maserati of Fort Lauderdale donates to charity in the client’s name. We have donated to noble causes such as American Cancer Society, Don Monti Research Foundation, American Diabetes Association, and more.

“Giving back to the community that supports us is our number one priority”, says Garrett Hayim.

We are also firm believers in giving back to the local community. For example, Maserati has supported local charities like South Florida Boys & Girls Club, Parkland Cares, and even Nicklaus Children’s Hospital in Miami. Notably, Garrett and Patricia Hayim were proud committee members and sponsors of this year’s Nicklaus Children’s Hospital Diamond Ball. This year, Maserati of Fort Lauderdale is proud to announce its contribution to this year’s Diamond Ball Gala.  Maserati of Fort Lauderdale is donating a 2022 Maserati Levante as the premier auction item. Nicklaus Children’s Hospital will specifically use the raised funds for a new state-of-the-art pediatric surgical tower at their medical campus. The tower will house advanced operating rooms and support enhanced surgical care.

“As a  proud mother of three, the services that the Nicklaus Children’s Hospital provide to the community is so admirable. It is an organization that is close to my heart. Garrett and I are so honored to be able to support this cause annually”, says Patricia Hayim.
