Multimillionaire businessman Michael Fux, an avid supercar collector, is now auctioning off 11 cars in his five-garage spanning collection, including three Mercedes-Benzs, one Cadillac, one BMW, and two Porsches,McLarens, and Ferraris, respectively.
The entrepreneur is currently the CEO and founder of Comfort Revolution, which makes memory foam and gel mattresses, toppers, and pillows.
The self-proclaimed “mattress mogul” is not shy about sharing his wealth and car collection on social media. He currently has five garages, according to his Instagram post, and uses the platform to share images of his collection, which includes a brown Porsche 911 Turbo and an orange BMW i8 Roadster.
“Growing up, I bought clunkers because I couldn’t afford anything else. I promised myself that one day, when I could, I’d get them all,” Fux said in an interview with Bed Times Magazine.
Fux eventually wants to put the cars in a museum with proceeds going to the Miami Children’s Hospital in Florida.
Take a look at the 11 cars Fux is auctioning off with Mecum in Kissimmee, Florida in January.
