On April 5th, the Festivals of Speed St. Petersburg edition took place at the Renaissance Vinoy Resort Golf Club and lasted all the way to April 7th. The event kicked off with the luxury jet port reception which is staged inside an actual aircraft hangar. Guests experience a fabulous display of vintage and contemporary aircraft, the world’s most exotic cars, custom created motorcycles, high performance boats and the finest luxury lifestyle product displays.

The cars included the Nissan GT-R, Lexus LFA among others not to mention the famous blue Porsche Cayman Rush that has graced most of these events since its debut from the Anibal Automotive Design of Canada.
Just like any other luxury car event, this one treated guests to vibrant cocktails from a premium brands open bar and indulge in sumptuous, themed food displays while experiencing the world’s most exotic vehicles. The entertainment was provided through the relaxed musical notes of smooth jazz performed by a strolling saxophonist not to mention there was a live and silent auction with proceeds going to charity.
