Durim Zuta is anything but your average 18-year-old in New York City. In fact, he’s the owner of a self-made luxury car service that is conquering the Tri-State area of New York City. The business is named Tristate Luxury Rentals– and it also doubles as a vehicle customization shop. In just under four years, Zuta has made a name for himself in a shark-filled industry that usually requires dozens of years of experience.
Zuta grew up being a car-lover. At age 14, Zuta was already taking his father’s Rolls Royce to local car shows in the city, hoping to see some of his bucket list dream cars on display. At these shops, he connected with a number of automobile entrepreneurs– most of which became a source of networking for teenage Zuta. Seeing as he was thoroughly interested in cars at such a young age, they all offered him the same piece of advice: learn the ropes, keep a good head on your shoulders, and find the business potential within your adoration of cars. “‘There’s plenty of money to be made in the world of cars’, is what they’d tell me,” Zuta mentioned while talking about his experience at the shows in the city. “I started learning about the business and immediately knew it was what I wanted to do,” he says. Not long afterward, he was using his network of car collectors and serving as a broker for a small set of established clients. Four years later, Zuta purchased his first Lamborghini Huracan Spyder, and Tristate Luxury Rentals became a reality.
Currently, the business has a “Fleet” of nearly a dozen luxury cars. For about $1,400 a day, you can drive the same Lamborghini that started the business, or any of the other cars in The Fleet, subject to availability and price ranging. In addition, the business offers a 24-hour chauffeur service to those who are interested in riding in style, but would rather take a back seat in the experience.
In just a few years of service, Tristate Luxury Rentals has already provided services to a long list of A-list celebrities and artists including French Montana, Ray J, Casanova, Lil Uzi Vert, Diddy, A Boogie wit da Hoodie, and dozens more. While the cars are a good asset for personal enjoyment or even a special occasion, most of his VIP clients use the cars as props for music production videos and television shows. In the future, Zuta hopes to grow his Fleet by purchasing a rare assortment of cars not often seen in the market and, in turn, cater exclusively to a smaller circle of high-end clients.
Tristate Luxury Rentals has a showroom located in North Jersey where The Fleet is on display for clients’ choosing. The vehicle customization shop is located on the rear side of the showroom and is open to the public. In the coming months, the business is scheduled to open another location in North Jersey. Zuta also plans to grow nationwide in the next few years.
Here’s a sneak peek at some of the cars in The Fleet’s lineup:

According to Zuta, we can expect that list to double by August 2022.
