American Automotive Capital Partners

Empowering dealerships, investing in communities, generating exceptional returns.

What Is AACAP

AACAP is an operating company that acquires and runs new vehicle dealerships primarily in the southern U.S. and California, with a particular emphasis on dealerships in Qualified Opportunity Zones.

We drive our dealerships to long-term excellence, create superior returns for our investors, and contribute to the economic development of local communities.

Why Dealerships

With about $1 trillion in annual revenues, new vehicle dealerships make up the largest retail sector in the United States. Many dealerships are in Qualified Opportunity Zones.

Fueled by diversified revenue streams, dealerships support local communities through jobs and taxes, and provide AACAP’s investors with current cash flow and long-term, tax-free capital appreciation.

How We Drive Success

AACAP puts our dealerships on the road to increased profitability and long-term capital appreciation.

We provide leadership and long-term capital focused on people, digital tools, and financial controls to create a robust operating platform that drives performance.

Qualified Opportunity Zones

AACAP makes a special effort to acquire new vehicle dealerships in Qualified Opportunity Zones (QOZs). QOZs provide tax incentives for long-term investment in disadvantaged areas in the United States. In exchange for an enduring commitment to the economic health of our dealerships and their communities, AACAP’s investors receive tax-free capital gains and other tax benefits. 

They also get the satisfaction of making a positive difference.

Decades of Experience

Our leadership team has decades of experience managing new vehicle dealerships, working in financial markets, and building investment platforms. 

And many of us grew up in the car culture of small-town America.
