Exotic Motorsports of Oklahoma
Outlook stopped by Exotic Motorsports of Oklahoma and visited with owners, Eliud Villarreal and Braiden Bond. If you’re in the market for a new ride, stop by and visit their amazing showroom.
How did this all get started?
Eliud: This all started New Year’s Eve in 2017. Braiden, my soon to be brother-in-law, asked me if I would open an exotic car store with him. We’re both longtime car enthusiasts and always wanted to have our own car store. I had the experience of managing and running all departments of a car dealership. We made the decision right then. As we moved forward through the different steps of starting this business, everything fell into place. It was quickly apparent to us this was part of God’s plan for us.
What’s the favorite part of your job?
Eliud: My favorite part about the job is that it doesn’t feel like a job. I love what we do and I love talking to people and hearing their stories about that special car they always dreamed of. And of course, I love being around some of the best automobiles ever made.
Braiden: My favorite part would have to be the look on someone’s face when they finally get the car that they have been wanting. It’s always a good feeling knowing that you did your job to the fullest. The view from my desk is a pretty good perk as well.
What cars are becoming collectible?
Eliud: The cars that are becoming collectible are hard to predict, A good rule of thumb is to consider cars that are not mass produced. Whether it is a special edition of a certain car or the configuration of its build – or only a limited number were produced.
What’s the most valuable vehicle you have ever sold?
Braiden: 2006 Mercedes McLaren SLR with 1000 miles on it. It sold for $300,000.
What would you like our readers to know about you and Exotic Motorsports of Oklahoma?
Eliud: Since we are both true car enthusiasts, that translates into our business. We strive to be the dealership people want to work with. We don’t run our organization like a typical car dealership. There is absolutely zero pressure with no sales tactics. Our cars sell themselves. If we do not have what you want, we will find it. You shouldn’t have to settle when it comes to finding that special car.
Braiden: Also, if you look at our inventory, you’ll see we do not only sell exotics. We sell quality everyday drivers too. When we sell a car, no matter what car, we want the customer to have a great experience and for them to return without question.
