“South Florida by the numbers” is a web feature that catalogs the most notable, quirky and surprising real estate statistics.

We may not be the biggest gearheads here at SFBTN headquarters, but we do love those cars. And since our tastes run a bit fancy, we are big fans of the recent trend of international automakers putting their brands and identities into Miami real estate. As we cruise the city streets with our windows down and our systems up, we are delighted to see innovative, auto-inspired architecture, design, and engineering having a real influence on Miami’s global identity. Ladies and gentlemen…start your engines, and enjoy this month’s edition of “South Florida by the numbers.”

1100: Street address and brand name of the 1100 Millecento condominium, where the lobby and lounge were created by Pininfarina, the Italian auto design firm best-known for its association with Ferrari. The firm was recently chosen by the city of Miami Beach to redesign its bus shelters, with work set to begin next year. [MiamiHerald]

75: Number of seconds the Porsche Design Tower’s “Dezervator” needs to whisk any car and driver to their Sunny Isles Beach residence. The luxury tower introduced the concept of “sky garages” — high-rise parking spaces located either adjacent to the living space (or one story below the home accessible via an internal staircase.) The Dezervator is named for the project’s Miami-based developer, Dezer Development. [cnn.com]

$1.5 Million: Price of a rare Pagani Zonda R (one of 15 ever made), which an anonymous Surfside resident recently had installed as a design unit inside his Fendi Chateau Residence condo. The car is suspended horizontally on support beams custom-made by Pagani for the installation, separating the master bedroom from the living room. The engine-less vehicle weighs 800 pounds, and required a crane and special permit in order to be installed. [MiamiHerald]

5,000: Square footage of a “skyport” being built atop Paramount Miami Worldcenter, where developer Dan Kodsi envisions a space compatible for passenger drones (in 10 to 15 years). These flying cars would land on top of the building, allowing residents and guests to enter the tower through a sky lobby, and ride down to their unit in elevators. [TheRealDeal]

66: When completed, number of stories at the Aston Martin Residences; a luxury waterfront tower in Biscayne Bay, with units ranging from $700,000 to $50 million for a penthouse. According to reports, the prestige British auto brand’s first foray into real estate is already 35 percent sold, while three years away from completion. [robbreport.com]
