Move To Malibu And Buy Your Very Own Automotive Museum

There’s a fine line that separates a garage from an automotive museum. Well, it’s a pretty wide line for most of us. But things can get a little confusing among elite enthusiasts, whose collections can sometimes rival those of dedicated museums.

If the prospect of treading that line strikes you as an opportunity too tempting to pass up, and you have $10 million to spare, this could be your chance.

Listed for sale in the elite California enclave of Malibu is a purpose-built garage complex that falls closer to the museum end of the spectrum. It was built by engineer and former tech executive Steve Goldman to house his collection. And he seems to have gone to great extents to keep his prized collection in the best possible condition.

Situated in the tony Point Dume neighborhood, the 7,000-square-foot structure sits on an acre of land. It’s built mostly out of metal and glass, and is impressively climate-controlled. Not only does it have the usual air conditioning, heating, and ventilation systems, but it’s humidity-controlled, too. It has a micron dust filter and an ultraviolet system to combat bacteria.

Goldman built the complex to house his collection of 14 high-end exotics. It includes a McLaren P1, LaFerrari, Porsche Carrera GT, Pagani Zonda, a McLaren 12C, and a smattering of other Porsches and Ferraris. Among them is a yellow 2002 Ferrari 360 with 1,000 horsepower, 1,000 lb-ft of torque, and the transmission from an offshore racing boat.

According to the Robb Report, Goldman drove it once at Willow Springs, and found it so dangerously fast that he put it in this garage and never drove it again. There’s also a one-of-a-kind Porsche 911 GT2 built by Goldman’s “close family friend” Alois Ruf.

The collection isn’t included in the asking price for the building. But Goldman says he’d be willing to part with some of the cars at their replacement cost. Even without the collection it houses, the building can comfortably accommodate up to 25 cars. It also has living space so you can overnight next to your prized collection, whether you choose to open it up to the public or not.

Interested? Malibu specialist real estate agent Chris Cortazza has it listed for $10,000,000. But filling the display space with cars would be another matter entirely.
