Todd Blue, Chairman and CEO of indiGO Auto Group, announced today that the company has purchased Lamborghini Houston located at 13921 North Freeway in Houston, Texas. The transaction, which was completed on January 28’h, 2011, is the second franchised automotive dealership Mr. Blue has acquired in Houston following the addition of Porsche of North Houston in January 2010. Lamborghini Houston was previously owned and operated by Bob Cann of Motorcars International of Springfield, MO, John Youngblood of Youngblood Auto Group of Springfield, MO and Gary Seal of Houston, TX. Todd Blue will serve as Dealer Principal. Gary Seale will join the indiGO Auto Group and remain with Lamborghini Houston in management.
IndiGO Auto Group currently consists of three automotive dealerships including Porsche of North Houston, indiGO Classic Cars and Lamborghini Houston. indiGO Classic Cars will soon relocate its operation from Kentucky to Houston to be integrated into the growing indiGO family of automotive dealerships.
“We couldn’t be happier about the addition of Lamborghini Houston to our group,” said Mr. Blue. “We’re thrilled to have previous owner Gary Seale join our company. He has tremendous knowledge of the brand and established relationships in the Lamborghini community.”
A life-long car enthusiast and collector, Mr. Blue added, “I can’t wait for our customers to see the products that Lamborghini has in development. Lamborghini’s state-of-the-art motorcars, specifically the new Aventador LP700-4 (arriving to our dealership this May 2011), which is the replacement for the Murcielago, is quite possibly the most advanced super exotic production sports car ever produced.”
Mr. Blue’s excitement for his new dealership is only rivaled by his genuine adoration of the Houston area and Houstonians. “Our Porsche customers are enthusiasts, our Lamborghini customers are enthusiasts. This is a reflection of the enthusiastic spirit that Houstonians have in all that they do. The car community in Houston is second to none. Our customers really drive their cars; they are passionate about great engineering and design. Our team members love providing our customers with experiences that fulfill their automotive dreams on a daily basis”.
Indigo Auto Group’s mission is to deliver the highest level customer service and offer timeless modernity while honoring the heritage of the brands it represents. It will always be paramount to Mr. Blue’s organization that his dealerships maintain a boutique and authentic environment where customers have experiential automotive ownership. “We’re fortunate to be a privately held automotive group delivering our customers a boutique experience,” said Mr. Blue. “We know our customers on a first name basis and with our expanding brand line-up, we’re able to deliver them design-driven performance, lUxury and vintage motorcars.”
In addition to his focus in the automotive business, Mr. Blue oversees the strategic direction of Cobalt Ventures. Cobalt focuses its efforts in urban real estate development.
