If you aren’t familiar, Diamonds and Donuts is a monthly car show in Boca Raton, held at Diamonds by Raymond Lee. Our car show is more than just a place where amazing cars gather; it is a charity event, raising money and goods for local causes. The first Diamonds and Donuts car show was April of 2017, and we have been growing month-over-month ever since. We now get a TON of cars and attendees, and we are recognized as one of the hottest car shows in South Florida.
Diamonds and Donuts has luxury cars and jewelry, live music, delicious foods and exclusive giveaways, gorgeous “Diamond Girls” and awesome Floridians, and it is a great chance for local businesses and entrepreneurs to connect with their community. We are so grateful to all that show up every month. You are truly making our car show a South Florida hit. Diamonds and Supercars have striking similarities. Both attract a lot of attention. So, it is no wonder it has been so successful. Also, we just know how to put on a good show.
Our charitable efforts were a success with the Boys and Girls Club of Broward County again. Apart from raising money for the Boys and Girls Club of Broward County, we also had a food drive just in time for Thanksgiving. This also ended up being a big success. The fact that we have created an incredible event that sees some of the most exquisite cars in the world and combined that successfully with giving back to causes that touch home for us makes Diamonds and Donuts such a pleasure to host each and every month.
Now, it’s time for a victory lap. Let’s have a look at some of the cars and people who have joined us. Fabio came with his X-Box 2018 Lamborghini Huracán Performante, which has a V10 engine with 640HP, and it is faster and livelier than ever. Originally, Fabio’s car is of Verde Mantis color (green), but he recently gave his Lambo a temporary makeover in support of Xbox’s 17th birthday. It took some of the most exclusive car wrap technology to make this happen, and it was done in collaboration with @metrowrapz. For us, his car is the epitome of sophistication, technology, refinement, and fun. This is what a massive, boisterous engine should sound and drive like.
Sara came out with her Lamborghini Aventador Roadster. Stephan Winkelmann, Lambo’s charismatic chairman, stated that the Roadster is the most extraordinary car in the company’s illustrious history at the car’s launch down in Miami. This is a bold statement, but it is hard to argue with. The Roadster has 729bhp ready and willing, which is more than the already insane 680bhp that has been bestowed to the standard Aventador. What’s even more impressive is the claim Lamborghini makes on how the Roadster reaches an astonishing top speed of 217mph with or without the roof in place. It really doesn’t get any better. Sara’s Roadster is all white with orange calibers for a touch of extra spice.
Sara also blessed us with her white Lambo Gallardo. The Gallardo is a household name, as it is Lamborghini’s first top-selling model, produced from 2003 to 2013, at which time the Huracán took over (2014). There were only 14,022 Gallardos produced during its production run. It was named after the great breed of fighting bull and it has a V10 engine with a maximum output of 493hp.

It was absolutely fantastic to have her join us at Diamonds and Donuts.
The Porsche 911 GT3 RS is mainly used for racing. It is a high-performance adaption of the Porsche 911 sports car. The GT3 RS has a 4.0 liter flat-six engine, which is the biggest engine allowed in a street-legal 911). It goes 0-60 in 3.5 seconds and has a top speed of 193mph. The RS’s design is high-tech, with carbon fiber as a crucial component. The carbon-fiber fixed rear wing has continually become more discernible with each new generation. Overall, the GT3 RS is a track slayer with cornering grip that is one of the best in the major leagues.
We had one of Chevy’s latest Corvette come out in attendance with us, the Corvette ZR1. Top speed goes 212 mph, 0-60 in 2.85 seconds, factory equipped with a 6.2L v8 supercharged, 755HP stock! This is the fastest and most powerful car ever built by the finest American car company – General Motors. The ZR1 is the epitome of Corvetteness. It’s got power, pace and a hell of a lot of capability. Furthermore, it’s not all about speed, this Vette is super pleasing for slo-mo cruising. The base price on this bad boy is 122,000 bones, and if speed kills, I don’t want to live anymore. Driving off in a Corvette ZR1 into the sunset is pure heaven.
Tri-County Mopars brought a big group of Dodges as they usually do. We can’t thank them enough for all the support. Classic American cars at a new, yet soon to be classic, South Florida Car Show. Additionally, this time there was also a large abundance of Ford Mustangs that rolled through. We didn’t get the name of this gentleman, but he surely was a big fan of Dead Pool. He had his Charger on the scene with its custom Deadpool wrap, which was done extremely well. It’s awesome seeing muscle cars with a theme like this one. Especially since Deadpool was such a badass movie.
Diamonds and Donuts Car Show is completely free for spectators AND for anyone who wants to display their vehicle. Furthermore, we accept any make and model to join us at our car show. It’s not all about exotics and classics. If you just want to attend, without displaying a vehicle on our lot, then you can show up whenever you like during the event.
For those who want to have a spot on our lot for your car(s), we ask that you contact us in advance so we can secure your space.Also, we would love local businesses to get involved, so please do reach out if you think that you have something to offer that would be perfect for our car show.
