Speedart Motorsports is the brainchild of James Hondros. Starting at a very young age competing on the European circuits as a championship driver, and after a 25-year corporate career in the ultra-luxury automotive retail field in the United States, James decided to pursue his lifelong passion by founding and promoting a company that caters to discerning clients and collectors alike, looking for an extraordinary experience accompanying the acquisition of their next exotica.
James is a recognized authority in vintage and modern sports cars as well as racing motorcycles. Having spent years in buying, selling, restoring and curating some of the rarest automobiles in captivity, he understands the importance of correctly representing these special machines and the pride associated with the ownership of such, for both buyers and sellers.
Price and exclusivity alone is not the only gauge for his love of the automobile, James is equally passionate for a VW Golf GTI Mark One as he is for an Aston DB4 GT Zagato so he strongly believes that collectible cars and motorcycles should be enjoyed by everyone within each one’s financial realm. His mission is to create a community of highly satisfied members from all walks of life that are able to share their enthusiasm and experiences from the fascinating world of motorsports.
Speedart could not be possible without the help and friendship of Alex Xakoustis. Although Alex is currently the owner of an internationally leading interior design firm, he agreed to partner with James by sharing the same vision, common business approach and an invaluable expertise in cars and design.
Alex and his company, Italkraft was instrumental on the design and construction of our spectacular showroom by employing the latest technologies, materials and know-how. Alex enjoys cars as much as he enjoys yachting and watersports, so next time you feel like changing from the Highway terrain to the Intracoastal Waterway ask for him and he will organize a memorable charter on our fully-crewed M/Y Amos.
With two decades of experience and a sterling reputation in the automotive industry as a general manager with Lamborghini as well as various positions in the high line sector, Italo Figueroa is responsible for all retail operations at Speedart Motorsports. Mr. Figueroa’s area of responsibility also includes acquisitions and consignments so he will be delighted to share with anyone his expertise or simply suggest the best avenue of selling an automobile.
With an extensive knowledge of hyper-luxury automobiles and supercars but most importantly due to his dedication in cultivating and sustaining client relations through integrity and hard work, Italo represents the true ethos of our company.
Italo is not the average automotive executive that contains himself on managing a dealership behind a desk, but a genuine car guy with great passion and unparalleled customer service skills. When you visit our showroom ask for Italo and you will quickly realize that our business attitude conveys so much more than a typical automotive reseller.
