Artefacto, a high-end furnishings and design firm with three locations in Miami, recently completed the installation of a $1.5 million Pagani Zonda R inside an oceanfront four-bedroom, 4,232-square-foot condo at the Fendi Chateau Residences in Surfside.
The automobile is suspended horizontally on support beams custom-made by Pagani for the installation.
The car — sans its V-12 Mercedes-AMG engine — acts as a space divider between the living room and the master bedroom.
The city of Surfside granted the contracting firm Finish My Condo a special permit to hoist the car (which weighs 800 pounds with its engine removed) via a crane through the fifth-floor condo's terrace.
Construction on the building had been completed in 2016, so Artefacto had to remove the unit's impact windows and moldings in order to get the automobile inside.
The rest of the condo's decor — including the furniture, lighting and color scheme — was designed to complement the car.
Artefacto, which was launched 40 years ago and is currently expanding into a global brand, specializes in the luxury market.
The firm built the model unit on the 11th floor of Zaha Hadid's One Thousand Museum tower, complete with working air conditioning, while construction on the 62-story skyscraper had only reached the 43rd floor.
