Britain meets Birmingham
Platinum Motorcars, 1090 S. Adams, Birmingham, owned by Syed and Erica Ahmed, will be the official exclusive authorized dealer in Michigan and the Midwest for Briggs Automotive Company, and will bring Briggs’ Mono supercar to this market. Designed and produced in Liverpool, England, the Mono has already been exported to 40 countries worldwide and has a strong U.S. presence. The Mono is a single seat sports car that is made to order for the driver, Ian Briggs said, with a top speed of 175 miles per hour. “People see it as their luxury weapon they want to cherish,” he said, designed for the track or the road. “We wanted to make sure it drives as well as it looks,” said Neil Briggs of the luxury vehicle. Platinum currently offers a wide variety of luxury and sports vehicles, including Audi, BMW, Aston Martin, Land Rover, Porsche, Ferrari, Lamborghini and Bentley. “We are automotive and racing enthusiasts at our core,” Syed Ahmed said. “We know our customers will appreciate the authentically analogue and pure driving experience delivered by these bespoke machines.”
