As a business owner, Bruce offers the customer the unique experience of interacting with the mechanic that is working on the car as well as, allowing the customer to be included in the entire process. The passion of the car owner is respected and highly encouraged!
He is the founder and chief mechanic here at Maranello Autosport. Bruce's fascination with automobiles began at a young age. In his mid-teens he was found to have the ability to understand the inner workings of a car, more than most people. A bit of a prodigy, the owner of a local garage recognized Bruce's passion and natural talent, which led the shop owner to take him under his wing and mentor him.
As the years progressed, Bruce worked at different shops in the New York area gaining valuable experience working on a broad range of vehicles. In early 2001, Bruce opened up his own garage just outside of Westchester County in New York. Shortly after the tragic events of 9/11, Bruce received a phone call from Shelton Ferrari/Maserati in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida. The Shelton's recognized Bruce's ability to diagnose and repair a vehicle with the highest standard of care and quality, they wanted him a part of their team. When Maserati came back to the U.S. in 2002, he was the only Maserati trained service technician in the area, who took care of all the new cars, as well as, working on the Ferrari Challenge racing team while servicing Ferrari cars. He also participated in Ferrari Club track events throughout the U.S. and Canada. In 2005, Ferrari of Central Florida recruited Bruce in an effort to help with the growing Ferrari and Maserati service needs in the Central Florida area. Through the years, he has attended numerous Ferrari/Maserati Certified Training courses for the various models. Bruce has traveled to both Ferrari and Maserati factories for various training and in 2007, he obtained his Ferrari Master Technician Certification. At that time, he was only one of a few individuals with those credentials in the U.S.
Continuing to learn more about the brands he worked for, Bruce earned his Maserati Master Certified Technician status in 2010 while working at Ferrari/Maserati of Central Florida. By earning that certification, it made him only one of a handful of individuals to achieve both brand certification levels. In mid-2015 an opportunity presented itself to open his own shop.
Bruce and his wife, Elisha, created Maranello Autosport to fill a void in the exotic car service business that wasn't being met by the dealer network. Since opening the shop in late 2015, we have seen an increase in our client base each year as we attend various car shows and track events. Our clients are always wanting us to be a part of their exotic car ownership experience. We do not just have clients, we have friends/family for life. Our shared passion for these cars makes it all the more fun to do what we do each and every day. Over the years, our repertoire includes; Lamborghini, Ferrari, Maserati, Porsche. We also work on classic Corvettes, as they were a passion of Bruce's early in his career that never left. We are avid race fans and participate/attend as many endurance events as time permits. We are also Tifosi of Formula One racing!!
