Sir Alfred J. Dimora and Zen Master Lee Sun-Don collaborated to produce the epitome of rolling art, the Dimora Vicci 6.2 Emperor series of handcrafted automobiles. When introduced at the Art Revolution Taipei, the crowd was enthusiastic and the first two cars in the series sold for $1 million each.
DiMora Vicci 6.2 incorporates the highest level of automotive technology, luxury, performance, safety and communications. On top of all that – it features an artwork by highly sought-after Taiwanese artist Master Lee Sun-Don, reproduced on the hood and side panels. The artwork is transposed onto the automobile by skilled DiMora Motorcar artisans, requiring more than 700-man hours to replicate every exacting detail of the original. “There are no two car paintings alike. Our DiMora Vicci 6.2 is a very unique automobile with attention to detail and unmatched style and power,” says DiMora, a 40-year veteran of the custom car industry who for the first time is merging art and the art of the automobile.
DiMora Vicci 6.2 is a lightweight 2,820 pounds. As a result, it can do 0-to-60 mph in around 4 seconds. The 430-hp/424 ft-lb torque model is equipped with the General Motors LS3 series all-aluminum V-8, at 6.2 liters, and the more powerful supercharged 556 hp/604 ft/lb option, on the same block with 9.1:1 compression ratio, is available for an additional $60,000. Designed by Sir Alfred J. DiMora using Carbon DiMora Fiber Design (Carbon DFD), the immaculately designed coach-built neoclassic automobile is offered at $1.2 million, and the price includes the coordinating Master Lee Sun-Don original artwork.Automobiles and art have been excellent investments throughout the collectors’ financial world, and without exception DiMora Vicci 6.2 has attracted both collector communities. The supercar will be showcasing for 2 days among other stellar contemporary artworks in the exhibition “Masters of Abstract Art” at RFA Gallery.”Masters of Abstract Art” will feature incredible new paintings by renowned, award-winning artists Joe Novak, Donald Spencer, Mario Pikus, Robert Tahar, and sculptor Robert Reeves. Abstract art is complex, yet simple — it is not literal or figurative, or representational. It is art created in the moment. The colors provoke emotions. Through brushstrokes, texture, scale, the artist leaves only the essence – with its symbolic reality. Abstract Art is powerful! This promises to be a masterpiece of an Exhibit.
