Triumphantly Returns to Long Island
By Christopher A. Pape
Gary Brustein has always been a man on a mission. Known throughout New York has the exotic car impresario, Mr. Brustein, has worked with countless New Yorkers (and many beyond our fair boarders) to help put clients into the luxury car of their dreams. From Ferraris to Bentleys and everything in between, Gary always has the right car for his well-heeled customers.
Many of you may remember Champion Motors as the premiere dealer for Bentley, Rolls Royce and Lamborghini on Long Island. Coupled with his years of experience and expertise, Gary welcomes you to the next phase of Champion Motors.
A beloved force in the luxury automobile sales industry (he has almost 40 years of experience), Mr. Brustein owns and operates the new Champion Motor Group. The group has one of the largest selections of pre-owned luxury, highline and exotic automobiles to choose from, such as Aston Martin, Lamborghini, Bentley, Ferrari, Maserati, Porsche and Rolls-Royce. It also occupies a 40,000-square-foot, state-of-the-art showroom; at Champion, it’s all about the experience of buying an ultra-premium automobile. That’s why the cars – from these most luxurious of automakers – are displayed like the works of art.
Champion’s new location is located in Syosset, NY. Upon entering the space, it is clear that Gary paid close attention to details and has created an environment that is both comfortable and requisite in the Exotic and Classic Automobile industry. You would expect nothing less from the undisputed champion of the classic, exotic and luxury car market.
Gary, whose reputation across the country is one of respect and confidence, can walk into car auctions or events, like the one at Pebble Beach in California, and command attention. And yet, he has always believed in a hands-on approach to running a dealership. Mr. Brustein meets and greets every customer who sits with any of his salespeople. It is easy to tell that Gary’s business philosophy has always focused on delivering quality customer service with a close attention to detail. And he has built an impressive record as one of the premier automotive sales executives in the country, recognized for his extensive knowledge and commitment to customer service.
Champion Motor Group also has an Antique and Collectible Division that specializes in selling award-winning cars from the 1920s to the 1970s. In addition, Gary has a top-of-the-line service department, with a knowledgeable and dedicated service team that is fully qualified to satisfy the repair and servicing needs of his customers. All of their professional technicians are factory-trained and have extensive experience with luxury cars. Gary has also developed one of the largest car leasing companies on the Eastern seaboard.
But do not take Gary’s or our word for it. There have been many recent articles written about how the luxury and classic car market has outperformed all global stock exchanges in the last 10 years. In 2014 alone, the value of classic collectible cars rose over 40% in value. This figure is nearly four times the value gained in a single year compared to the Dow Jones, S&P 500 or NASDAQ.
Beyond his professional interests, Mr. Brustein actively supports charitable causes and associated medical organizations such as the American Heart Association and North Shore LIJ Hospitals. His personal interests include attending automobile shows, playing golf and tennis and international travel.
As for who Gary is, ask his many friends. They’ll say, without pause, that he is an impeccably dressed man who genuinely cares about his friends and his employees. He is a man with the right connections, ready to make the best deal for his clients. A man who has given most of his adult life to the car business and one with deep and extensive knowledge, that he brings to bear for his many satisfied customers. To top it all off, he is a dedicated husband with two beautiful and successful children. One might say he is the luckiest man in the world (and you wouldn’t be far from the truth).
