Jacksonville Sports Car Museum plans to open soon
The first dozen exotic collectible cars have been parked inside the 58,802-square-foot Jacksonville Sports Car Museum, ranging from a sleek 395-horsepower BMW Z8, its removable hardtop stacked nearby, to a rare 1980s Lamborghini Jalpa P350 in very Italian red.
As museum managing member David Gonzales walks past more, like three Aston Martins, a formula race car and a Ford GT, with Museum Director Tanner Nicolson, they discuss what's needed to get the facility at 7601 Centurion Parkway open next month.
