Michael Fux’s red Rolls-Royce Phantom

Michael Fux’s red Rolls-Royce Phantom

Most people come to the 2009 Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance and bring their car with them. Michael Fux came to the Concours to see his newest addition to his family.

Michael Fux is well-known in the car world. Fux has 100 cars in his collection, all of which will be part of a museum someday with the proceeds going to a children’s hospital in Miami, FL.

How does Fux make his money? He earned it, the old fashioned way. Michael Fux is the founder of Sleep Innovations, which makes foam pillows and mattress pad.

Watch as Fux takes me through his new red and white Rolls-Royce Drophead that he customized, and Rolls-Royce built, by hand.
