Fleet of luxury golf cars arrive on Fisher Island - 2 May 2016

Buy a condo - and get a custom-designed golf and leisure car from the luxury brand Garia in the deal. That’s the offer to buyers of new luxury residences at Palazzo Del Sol on Fisher Island, the famed private island community off the coast of Miami Beach, Florida.  

Upon purchasing a residence in the island’s newest and most exclusive boutique building, Palazzo Del Sol, buyers will receive a custom-designed golf and leisure car from Garia, the world’s leading manufacturer of golf cars in the luxury class. Each golf car has been individually numbered and corresponds with one of the newly completed development’s 43 waterfront residences, which are priced from $6.5 to 35 million.  

“Golf cars are the preferred method of transportation on Fisher Island and our buyers are thrilled when we hand them the keys to their new custom Garia,” says Palazzo Del Sol’s developer Heinrich von Hanau. “They are as much about function as they are about form and they symbolize the superior level of design and quality Palazzo Del Sol brings to the island.”  

Accessible only by auto-ferry or private yacht, Fisher Island represents one of the wealthiest zip codes in the U.S. – and it is one of the most sought after destinations in the world when it comes to exclusivity, luxury and privacy. The island’s luxury homes, golf course, tennis facility and Club are of the highest and most exclusive standards, attracting many of the world’s wealthiest to its shores for more than two decades. The island is also known as the former winter retreat for William K. Vanderbilt and a string of American pioneers of industry in the years following.  

Garia CEO Jakob Holstein calls the partnership with Palazzo Del Sol a milestone for the company in the U.S. market.  

“Our cars on Fisher Island are shining examples of Garia’s ability to deliver custom-designed cars that match our high-end customers’ needs. The Palazzo Del Sol cars are designed so they can be used both for golf and regular transport around the island – and they luxuriously reflect the expression and exquisite design line of Palazzo Del Sol,” says Jakob Holstein.

Garia has for many years delivered golf cars to golf courses and leading country clubs around the world. The partnership with Palazzo Del Sol exemplifies a new market that is rapidly growing for Garia - namely golf and leisure cars that are designed to be used for normal driving on holiday resorts.  

“Our cars are of such high quality and design that they are ideal for transport on roads. You do not have to play golf to have fun and get a great quality experience in one of our cars,” says Jakob Holstein.  

The custom golf cars delivered to Fisher Island feature sleek graphite grey metallic paint, chrome rims, a built-in refrigerator and sport seating for four.

The Palazzo Del Sol Golf and Leisure Car

The multi-functional four-passenger version of the Garia Golf Car designed for Palazzo del Sol is ideal for daily errands and quick commutes. It looks great and is easy to ride. The rear seat has been elegantly integrated into the current design.

Product launch - Garia Mansory Prism - 2 March 2015

The fastest and lightest Garia ever made
The creative collaboration between Mansory Design and Garia reaches new heights with this years exhibited model at the Geneva Auto Show 2015.

The Garia Mansory Prism is the fastest golf cart the duo has made to date with a top speed of 60 km/h (37 mph) and an acceleration of 0-40 km/h (25mph) in less than 2 seconds thanks to new Samsung Lithium Batteries and an upgraded Curtis Controller. The speed is further assisted by a significant weight loss compared to a regular Garia Monaco Roadster of more than 150 kg, making this also the lightest Garia ever made.

Golf or race?
The Garia Mansory Prism is still suitable for golf due to its adjustable speed and regeneration settings via the machined aluminum knobs on the dashboard. The driver can opt for one of the three driving programs: "Golf" "Street" or "Race" - the last one powerful enough to spin its wheels on dry tarmac and lending the car a go-cart attitude in terms of handling and performance. Turn the switch to “Golf” and the top speed, acceleration and torque settings are adjusted to golf course accepted levels. This really is the ultimate golf car!

A symbol of personalization
Made as a visualization of the customization program Garia offers its clients, the Garia Mansory Prism debuts chrome body panels and aluminum switches made in collaboration with German Bugatti supplier Kussmaul. Clear coated carbon fibre parts and leather seats comes from Mansory who offers a full official range of upgrades for all Garia models. All parts of the car are made from the highest quality materials only seen in high-end supercars and the aerospace industry. Skilled technicians assemble each car by hand to the highest specifications.

Most of the parts on the Garia Mansory Prism is available as upgrades for all regular Garia cars, but the specific design of the Garia Mansory Prism and its unique performance and adjustable settings is strictly limited to 7 pieces.

The Garia Mansory Prism is street legal in Europe and can be registered with license plates and driven on the road.

Lithium battery heart - available for all Garias
The Garia Mansory Prism is fitted with our new Samsung lithium batteries for an extended range of more than 65 km / 40 miles, and a special performance package for increased acceleration and a top speed of up to 60 km/h / 37 mph (top speed is limited to 25 mph in the U.S. due to federal law). The Samsung lithium battery and most of the performance package is available on all new and existing Garia cars, ask your dealer for more information. The lithium batteries also reduce vehicle weight, turf compaction and is faster to charge compared with a lead acid battery setup.

Overall length: 2330 mm/ 92"
Overall width: 1210 mm/ 48" (excl. side mirrors)
Overall height: 1206 mm/ 47.5"

Garia Mansory Prism at the Geneva Motor Show 2015

Garia Roadster 2+2 launches at Geneva Motor Show 2014 - 3 March 2014

Launch of a new 4-passenger version of the Garia Roadster

In 2013 at the Geneva Motor Show Garia launched the Roadster version and the limited edition Garia Mansory Currus which was widely publicized. This year Garia is back at the show and introducing the 2+2 version of the Roadster.

The Garia Roadster 2+2 is available for Golf and Monaco (EU street legal) models and is being introduced at the Mansory booth in hall 6.0, stand 6250 from March 6-16 2014.

The exhibited car is based on the EU street legal Garia Monaco and features a number of additional upgrades from the Garia Mansory Accessory Program, including custom pearl paint and special brown leather seats. To complete the look, genuine carbon fiber parts are added throughout the car e.g. sill-cover, mirrors, instrument cluster, dashboard panel, bonnet vents etc. See images here

“The Garia Roadster 2+2 is a practical addition to the Garia range and can be used for golf as well as a people carrier. It retains the sporty look of the Roadster and combines it with the practicality and boot space of the regular 2+2 model” says Mr. Anders Lynge, Designer and Creative Director of Garia.

The unique combination of being allowed on a golf course while being street legal, able to carry 4 passengers and low enough to fit on a yacht makes the Garia Roadster 2+2 a perfect leisure vehicle for local transportation.

The Garia Monaco Roadster 2+2 can be fitted with the optional Performance Pack* which includes lithium batteries and a top speed of 60 km/h / 37 mph as well as an extended range of 60 km / 37 miles. This makes it even more ideal for local commuting and reduces the time for a full charge to 5 hours in a normal power socket.

*The Performance Pack and Lithium batteries is currently not available in the U.S.

PGA Tour winner Bubba Watson upgrades to Garia - 22 January 2014

Garia, the European manufacturer of the Garia luxury golf and leisure car, has entered into an exciting partnership with PGA professional Bubba Watson.

The five times PGA Tour winner – known for his incredible drives and his pink driver – is a natural talent who never had a lesson in golf apart from when his father introduced him to the game at the age of 6. Garia also embodies an unconventional approach having completely redefined the golf cart and launched the first fully customizable luxury golf car.

“I love it. It’s amazing – I might drive this more than my car” says Bubba who has upgraded his previous golf cart to a customized Garia at his Isleworth home in Florida.

“Garia is all about the ultimate luxury golf car. It’s a unique construction from the ground up using only the best materials that allows for complete customization. We are very proud to have been chosen by a renowned PGA professional such as Bubba Watson and we feel it’s an acknowledgement of the efforts put into making Garia the best personal golf car available” says Anders Lynge, designer of the Garia.

Bubba Watsons Garia
Bubba chose to customize his Garia with parts from the Garia Mansory Accessory Program, including carbon fiber front body, side panels, steering wheel and unique custom seats with “Bubbagolf” embroidered onto. All custom parts are handmade by the German tuning company Mansory – famous for modifying Ferrari, Bugatti, Rolls Royce and many other high end cars for wealthy clients.

The Garia Mansory Accessory Program is unique in the golf cart segment and allows each owner to fully personalize the car to their specific taste. Bubba Watson is a good example of this with his unique car in a combination of shiny cream and matte coated carbon fiber parts with matching black and cream seat, dashboard and headliner. It is one of a kind and reflects Bubbas taste in golf cars.

About Garia
The Garia is created in collaboration with golf professionals and built with high quality components from the automotive industry. The Garia design team has been uncompromising in its efforts to create the best golf car in the world. Luxury features on the Garia include a built-in refrigerator, extra comfortable sport seat and 12” alloy wheels. The Garia is available in various models, including street legal and 4-seater all of which has earned the right to be called golf car as opposed to golf cart.
