Default Exotic Cars at Caesar's Palace File Bankruptcy!

Exotic Cars at Caesar's Palace Las Vegas Files Chapter 11

Exotic Cars at Caesar's Place LLC, whose Web site says the showroom has 7,000 visitors a day, filed a Chapter 11 petition on March 12 in Las Vegas.

Located at the Forum Shops at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas, the company listed assets of $1.8 million and debt totaling $9.6 million.

The company says it sells cars from makers including Ferrari, Lamborghini, Rolls-Royce and Lotus. A court filing said $1.28 million is past due on the lease for the showroom.

The case is Exotic Cars at Caesar's Place LLC, 08-12226, U.S. Bankruptcy Court, District of Nevada (Las Vegas).

One forum member where I read this stated this
I have been told on a square foot basis that the Forum Shops are the most productive retail space in the USA. Therefore, I have to assume, the most expensive. You have to move a lot of goods to pay that kind of rent. How do you get $1.28 arrears in rent?
Seemed they where trying to make money by selling a chance to peak at the cars from a catwalk, and selling t shirts and caps.

How do you end up 9.8 million in debt with a store that sells t shirts. Sounds like someone isnt getting their consigned car back.

I wouldnt pay the ten bucks to go up close so maybe its all my fault.

I went to a showroom at the Imperial Palace, but I had no idea there was one at Ceasars as well.

Default so where did all the money go???? 2+2=9.8mm

These guys were "no good" from day one. it all looked like a nice bowl of cherries but this Weisman chap smells like the ultimate culprit. He swindled his money guy in the beginning before opening according to court records, stiffed a few others (Holmquist) as well as really put it to a host of creditors, big and small. Its too bad, it could have been a great attraction but it tutned out to be a huge disappointment. Oh well!

Been there and lets say is a bit underwhelming. They were charging like 10 bucks to walk around the cars, which some werent even that close to see. I have been to better car shows for free.

Everything else there was grossly overpriced.
