PALM SPRINGS, CA – Dec 24, 2015 – DiMora Motorcar will be exhibiting one of the stylish, limited-edition DiMora Vicci 6.2 Emperor Convertibles at the San Diego International Auto Show Exotics Vault, December 31, 2015 through January 3, 2016. The distinctive 430-horse power rolling art on wheels is the result of a unique joint collaboration between automotive designer Sir Alfred J. DiMora and equally influential Totemic Energy Artist Master Lee Sun-Don of Taiwan.
“I love cars and I love art, so I set out to collaborate with world renowned artists to create the first true limited-edition production rolling art. Each artist that I am working with is hand-picked by me,” said DiMora.
Upon purchase of each DiMora Vicci 6.2 Emperor Convertible, the buyer also receives the original one-of-a-kind painting by Zen Master Lee. Each large-scale painting in the Great Treasure Gate series pays artistic homage to the rare door knockers created during the Ming Dynasty (1368 to 1644) by incorporating an actual Ming Dynasty doorknocker into the painting. From that, the skilled artisans at DiMora Motorcar invest no less than 750 man-hours to reproduce the artwork onto the hood and side panels of the car, right down to hand laying 24-karat gold leaf as a final step.
DiMora has been in the automotive business for nearly 40 years, having owned Clenet Coachworks. The Clenet was named the “American Rolls-Royce” by Fortune magazine, so there’s no doubt that his equally stunning DiMora Vicci 6.2 is commanding the same level of respect.
“We have been very selective with every aspect of building the DiMora Vicci 6.2, so when it came time to choose the first artist series collaboration, not just any artist would do,” shared DiMora. Master Lee Sun-Don’s popularity worldwide continues to make him a highly sought-after artist. His artwork is currently showing in galleries around the world, including Beverly Hills, Hong Kong, Shanghai, and Taipei, to name but a few.
In an industry where quality and performance matter, the sporty and artistically stimulating DiMora Vicci 6.2 Emperor Series spares no expense with its distinctive hand-built craftsmanship and DiMora Motorcar’s lightweight carbon DFD technology. The limited-edition Vicci 6.2 combines 1930s Art Deco style with 21st Century technology. Each 1.2 million dollar limited-edition production rolling art has aesthetically pleasing features that showcase the DiMora brand’s originality, where creativity sees no limits and offers up a driving experience that is unmatched.
“We love being able to offer spectators a first-hand glimpse of new and cutting edge cars. The DiMora Vicci 6.2 is unique, stylish and a real showstopper,” said Scott Webb, Director of Marketing and Operations, at the San Diego Auto Show.
The 2,820-pound car has: gold and gold leaf strategically placed throughout the automobile; an aluminum radiator; a 6.2 liter aluminum engine; a Bosch Hydro-Boost Power Booster; state-of-the-art electronics; wire wheels; racing suspension; an aluminum drive shaft; Italian leather; and English Wilton Wool carpet to add to the luxury ambiance. Accompanying the 430-hp engine is an aluminum 4-speed or 6-speed along with a posi rear end. The DiMora Vicci 6.2 also comes in a 556 horse-power Supercharged engine option, but with power like that, it’s definitely not for the faint of heart.
