With his James Bond themed yachts, groundbreaking designs and larger than life personality, John Staluppi is one of our industry’s most recognisable figures. Staluppi, who expects his latest yacht, the 69m Spectre, to be delivered by Benetti in May 2018. Staluppi described his 57m Skyfall as his “interim” boat, when he met Felix Sowerbutts earlier this year at the Palm Beach Boat Show. Read Full Article

"Five charity cars raised the roof as they sold for a total of $515,000 (with an additional $10,000 donation by Michelle Mauzy and family), bringing Barrett-Jackson close to the $94 million mark in total funds raised for non-profits to date. A highlight was a ’96 Ford Mustang (Lot #3001) built by students at the Jordan Vocational High School in Georgia. Entrepreneur and collector car magnate John Staluppi and his wife Jeanette purchased it for $50,000.

“In an ultimate show of generosity, John and Jeanette announced they would re-auction the Mustang at our Northeast Auction to spur additional donations for the Jordan students,” said Jackson. “We’re grateful for their kindness and that of our other bidders who purchased charity vehicles."

Vocational education in high school helped shape Staluppi’s future, Harris said. “That was near and dear to his heart, because he saw how much value it had in his life.”

Staluppi, according to his online biography, “is a walking, talking embodiment of the American dream. Starting out as a gas station mechanic in Brooklyn, Staluppi built a billion-dollar business of car dealerships before turning his hand to creating some of the most iconic superyachts ever built.” He also established a vintage automobile museum, Cars of Dreams, which Team Red Jacket toured in North Palm Beach. Fla.

The bidding for Team Red Jacket’s car started at $10,000 and quickly quintupled, zooming past the auction’s $9,000 record for a student-restored car, Harris said he was told.

“We were excited and happy and emotional all at the same time,” Breanna said. “Most of us didn’t even think it would go past $18,000 or $20,000, but then it just kept going up.”

As the bids flowed, so did the tears.

“We all cried,” Breanna said.

“Barrett-Jackson continues to lead the collector car community in supporting veterans, youth programs, medical research and countless other worthy causes,” said Steve Davis, president of Barrett-Jackson. “Our history of helping runs deep in our company’s DNA and it’s such a rewarding experience to share the stage with many of the individuals that our charity vehicles benefit. Having a true hero like retired Navy SEAL Marcus Luttrell on the block to support the Lone Survivor Foundation was one of the more inspirational moments we’ve experienced during a charity auction.”

Based on the new Sunrise 68m by A. Vallicelli & Co, Project Skyfall was designed for one of the world's most experience yachtsmen, renowned for his spirit of innovation.

 

The aggressive sleekness of the yacht's lines reflects its ambitious performance targets: a fast displacement steel-hull, Project Skyfall will have a shallow draft of less than 3 metres, a top speed of 25 knots and a transatlantic range.

 

The yacht will also be a showcase of innovative technologies, never utilized on a yacht before, including VOITH linear jets propulsion and MME microturbines power generation.

The bidding was fierce, taking barely 3 minutes to complete. We all know from the Disney Love Bug movies that Herbie can drive himself, and did he ever this past Saturday. Herbie drove himself right into the record books selling for an eye popping $115,000 to well-known millionaire car dealer and collector John Staluppi.

Barrett Jackson - Palm Beach 2015 - Philanthropists and world-renowned car collectors Jeanette and John Staluppi donated an additional $100,000 to support the Achilles Freedom Team.

 

Business Wire - Barrett-Jackson - Auction Overview

Several vehicles were sold to benefit non-profit organizations, with 100 percent of the nearly $1 million dollars raised going to support veterans, children and other deserving charities.

Sportscardigest.com - Barrett-Jackson-Palm-Beach-2015-auction-results

Torquenews.com - Copo-camaro-1-raises-400k-charity

On Saturday, WWE Hall of Fame member Hulk Hogan took center stage and, in true “Hulkamania” fashion, ripped the shirt off his back to help Barrett-Jackson raise much-needed funds for U.S. veterans, children, cancer patients and others across the country. A few generous, philanthropic car dealers combined to raise $400,000 for the Achilles Freedom Team. David Flynn purchased the 2015 Chevrolet Camaro COPO Race Car VIN #001 for $300,000 followed by an additional $100,000 pledge from Jeanette and John Staluppi.

“Every Barrett-Jackson auction brings with it an opportunity to improve the lives of deserving individuals and organizations through the sale of charity cars,” said Steve Davis, president of Barrett-Jackson. “We truly appreciate the consignors who donate their vehicles and the bidders who bid from their heart. I’m confident that some wonderful opportunities will open up for those in need with the nearly $1 million in charity auction sales in Palm Beach.”

Barrett-Jackson has raised literally tens of millions of dollars for charity and there's probably never been a woman who's done as much for automobile racing then the legendary Linda Vaughn, a/k/a Hurst Miss Golden Shifter. So when the two of them team up, it's magic, especially when a noted philanthropist and car collector like Palm Beach resident John Staluppi is involved and so is noted Oldsmobile restoration house Thornton Motors Inc. Friday at the 12th annual Barrett-Jackson Palm Beach Collector Car Auction, a 1969 Oldsmobile 442 convertible Hurst Shifter car replica built by Thornton Motors sold for $200,000, every penny of which will go to Darrell Gwynn Foundation.



Excerpt:
The 1969 Oldsmobile 442 Convertible Hurst Shifter Replica made famous by Linda Vaughn sold for $200,000 at Barrett-Jackson Palm Beach on Friday, April 11. The car was purchased by longtime foundation supporter John Staluppi. Proceeds from the auction of the car benefit the Darrell Gwynn Foundation. The Darrell Gwynn Foundation’s mission is to SUPPORT people with paralysis and PREVENT spinal cord injuries.

boat international - john staluppi

(Excerpt from April 2012 - Boat International.com) Literally and metaphorically, John Staluppi has spent much of his life with his head in an engine. As a 16 year old mechanic he fell in love with the muscular engines of classic 1950s cars, whose voluptuous forms convey speed, even when standing still. Later his mechanical passion was the basis on which he built an empire of auto dealerships, and of his sideline in super yachts, which he commissions, uses, charters and sells. His success has afforded him the luxury of a private museum, Cars of Dreams in North Palm Beach, Florida, filled with angular sedans and undulating soft tops. But a visitor is still most likely to find him out the back, tinkering with a carburetor.

WHEELS OF DREAMS - Event to benefit the Darrell Gwynn Foundation

NORTH PALM BEACH, Fla. – The Darrell Gwynn Foundation, on behalf of its donors, donated a $13,500 "Batman Themed" wheelchair to Tyler Wright, a six year-old from Pompano Beach, Fla. "Wheels of Dreams" Gala at the Cars of Dreams Museum on April 5. Tyler, a well-liked student at Charles Drew Elementary School, is diagnosed with cerebral palsy and could not propel himself in his old manual wheelchair. Medicaid denied his claim for the proper wheelchair he needs. The new power wheelchair will give him the gift of mobility he needs so he can ride the bus to school on his own and engage more with his classmates as well as be more independent at home. The donation was made through the Darrell Gwynn Foundation's national Wheelchair Donation Program.

Tyler in his new Batman themed wheelchair complete with cape and mask was able to visit with his family a replica of the famous "Batmobile" which is on display at the Cars of Dreams Museum. The event was hosted and underwritten by John & Jeannette Staluppi. Proceeds from the event benefited the Darrell Gwynn Foundation's mission to provide SUPPORT for people with paralysis and PREVENT spinal cord injuries.

3/10/12 - Palm Beach Post - "Vroom in your heart? You can help Hospice"

by Jodie Wagner

Hundreds of vintage hot rods, classic cars and new luxery vehicles will be on display Sunday at the fourth annual South East Rods and Customs Cars of Dreams Show and Raffle.

The show will be held at the Cars of Dreams Museum, 133 U.S. 1 and a nearby lot. More than 4,000 classic-car enthusiasts are expected to attend the event, which includes a car show featuring restored classic cars and trucks, hot rods and luxury vehicles, food vendors and a tour of the private Cars of Dreams Museum.

Admission to the car show, which runs from 9.am to 4 pm, is free. The museum will be open from 9am to 2:30 pm. Admission is $10, with proceeds benefiting the Hospice of Palm Beach County Foundation.

The Cars of Dreams Museum, owned by John Staluppi and his wife, Jeannette, houses a comprehensive classic-car collection spanning more than 50 years, a hand carved carousel, a 1950's-era garage, a fire station and a town square.

Staluppi opens the museum to the public just twice a year for charity events, including the Shop With a Cop fundraiser sponsored by the Palm Beach County Sherriff's Office.

"It's just amazing," said Lauryn Barry, special events manager for Hospice of Palm Beach County. "It's formatted like an old-time, '50's town."

For this event, Staluppi donated a 1979 Pontiac Firebird Trans Am as part of the raffle.

New launch in Livorno for Benetti Custom megayachts - November 2011


"Diamonds Are Forever", this is the name of the new Custom megayacht launched on Saturday 26th November 2011 at the state-of-the-art Benetti shipyard in Livorno.
Benetti FB253 60mt is the boat's official identification, but for its owner it's "Diamonds Are Forever": the official name of the yacht and the very personal signature of Mr. John Staluppi, an established shipowner who has always been a fan of the Bond, James Bond saga.


Based on Benetti naval architecture and engineering, the elegant external line of the new FB253 Diamonds Are Forever is characterised by compact forms and dynamic slender lines: a balanced combination of traditional design elements and modern innovative stylistic solutions which have become the shipyard's distinguishing mark throughout the world.


On board, customisation to meet the needs and desires of the shipowner is total: the particular arrangement of the cabins, the location of the wheelhouse on the flybridge, the interior design and decor, the engine room made entirely of stainless steel and the addition of the top deck above the flybridge, a private panoramic deck 12 metres above the sea which can be reached by the glass lift that serves all the yacht decks.

Friday, 14 October 2011

Benetti have prelaunched the 61 metre Diamonds Are Forever, on schedule for her official launch later this year, when she will become available for charter through Ocean Independence from December 2011

Sparkling in the early Autumn Italian sunshine this week, as she took to the water, the 61 metre Diamonds Are Forever features a signature Evan K Marshall interior. The design synergy created through the longstanding owner designer relationship has resulted in a superb layout and sophisticated styling focusing on a full service guest concept for the charter market.

Comprising of two panoramic master suites and four guest staterooms. A guest elevator to all decks, a full beam sky lounge and vast open and shaded deck spaces. Of particular note is the additional top deck, located above the sun deck, which forms a very private, panoramic deck which is also served by the central elevator. The aft part of the sun-deck also allows easy touch and go helicopter operations.

Diamonds Are Forever - Custom Yacht for John Staluppi
by Benetti Yachts and Evan K. Marshall/Usonia V

 

 

The name's Staluppi, John Staluppi. If a boat is named after a Bond film, then it must be John Staluppi's boat – it's almost a personal signature, expressing one of the individual preferences of the legendary American tycoon, although for some time now he has been involved in a stronger, more overwhelming passion: period cars. John Staluppi has cultivated his passion for classic cars for many years, putting together his own private collection of fabulous vehicles that culminated in the creation of the incredible Cars of Dreams Museum. It's a remarkable, unique collection of numerous cars from the 1950s, 1960s and 1970s, all beautifully preserved in the immaculate splendour of their impeccably polished paintwork and glittering mirror-effect chrome plating. With their sleek lines and bright colours, these cars are fascinating metal sculptures, magically intact examples of technological and artistic beauty. They're certainly worth a lot of money, but more importantly they are a great historical treasure and an immense cultural asset, safeguarded thanks to John Staluppi. Nonetheless, other genres of artwork move him as well, and boats play a notable part here. Presumably for reasons of space, the considerable size of these seaborne masterworks make it impossible to put them together in a collection, and this is probably why John Staluppi likes to change his boat frequently. Over the years, he has had a large number of custom motor yachts built, and they have entered yachting legend for all time, standing out for their ultra high speed performance, which was in turn made possible by the cutting-edge technologies that the enlightened Owner explicitly requested from the best shipyards. Recently, however, John and Jeannette Staluppi have changed course and have become more interested in the production of custom motor yachts for tranquil cruises, typified by the size of the interiors and the magnificence of the fittings. For their next boat, the American couple put their faith in the Italian shipyard Benetti Yachts: the project for Diamonds Are Forever, as this unique "Quad Deck Design" motor yacht is called, was signed in December last year and the new motor yacht will be launched in August next year.

Cars of Dreams opens its doors and raises more than $44,000 for Hospice


April 6, 2011

More than 1,000 custom hot rod and classic cars from across the nation were on display at the South East Rods & Customs "Cars of Dreams" Benefit Car Show at the Cars of Dreams Museum in North Palm Beach. The event, which also offered a rare glimpse of John Stalupp's private Cars of Dreams Museum, attracted more than 2,000 visitors and raised more than $44,000 for Hospice of Palm Beach County.

South East Rods & Customs - a nonprofit, classic, street rod and collectible car club - organized the event and invited enthusiasts to show off their "rides" at the museum, which is housed in a shopping mall.

"I have been touched by Hospice in my own life and to partner with John Staluppi for this event was a win-win for everyone," www.serodsncustoms.com founder Donnie Hancock said.

He created the family oriented club to encourage appreciation and preservation of the cars and to support local charities and help neighbors in need. After one of its members was served by Hospice of Palm Beach County, the club made Hospice its primary charity.

"They treated him fantastic," Hancock said. "Hospice is there for everybody."

To car enthusiasts, the Cars of Dreams Museum is the eighth wonder of the world. John Staluppi and his wife Jeannette converted part of the old Twin City Mall, placing classic cars in tableaux that include a 1950s-era garage, a fire station and a town square with a working hand-carved antique carousel and a drive-in theater. John Staluppi opens the museum to the public only three times a year for charity events.

"This year, we have at least 400 more cars than last year and at least a 1,000 more people,"John Staluppi. "I love it; I love doing it. It's a great charity."
