Luxury Motorcars, a Sacramento dealership that specializes in used, exotic motor vehicles, wants to move to the River District, the 830-acre area north of Sacramento’s downtown core.
In a filing with the city’s Community Development Department, Luxury Motorcars LLC seeks approval to move operations to 840 Richards Blvd.
The dealership has long operated at 6529 Elvas Ave. near the California State University, Sacramento, campus.
Started in 2001, Luxury Motorcars handles transactions for such manufacturers as Ferrari, Lamborghini, Porsche, BMW, Audi, Mercedes-Benz and Land Rover.
Inventory is around 50 vehicles; the store typically sells 15 high-end vehicles a month.
Greg Wilson and John Brasher bought the operation this year. Wilson is a second-generation auto dealer, and Brasher was a manager with Brasher’s Sacramento Auto Auction, the family-run operation that was sold earlier this year to an Indiana firm.
In its application, Luxury Motorcars said it can be a “catalyst for more economic development in the area.”
In recent years, the River District has seen an an influx of residential, office and commercial projects. Recent arrivals include a Greyhound bus station, the California Lottery headquarters, a California Highway Patrol headquarters, a Krush Burger restaurant and special event services/amenities provider The Party Concierge.
The Luxury Motorcars application also says it plans to offer automotive-related apparel and merchandise at the Richards Boulevard site, plus a permanent collection of “museum-quality” vehicles.
There is one existing building on the Richards Boulevard site, with total square footage of 19,980.
