Thanks to this partnership Waldorf Astoria guests have the unique opportunity to get behind the wheel of the world’s most elite supercar – Lamborghini. Hilton Worldwide’s luxury hotel brand has teamed up with Italian sports car maker Automobili Lamborghini to debut the line-up of Waldorf Astoria Driving Experiences for 2016-2017. This program allows guests to test drive Lamborghini’s top models, including the Lamborghini Huracan 580-2 and the Lamborghini Huracan Spyder + Avio, at 12 Waldorf Astoria properties worldwide, accompanied by Lamborghini’s professional Italian drivers during 30-minute outings.
Important to notice that all program dates are timed to coincide with popular festivals or exhibitions occurring in each region. So, the first one took place at Waldorf Astoria Park City in Utah (July 7 through 10) to coincide with the 12th annual Park City Food & Wine Classic. Next stop will be at Waldorf Astoria New York (September 8 through 11) in honor of the US Open. Equally geared toward automotive events, driving experiences will also be offered at: Trianon Palace Versaille, a Waldorf Astoria Hotel, in France (October 7 through 9) during the Paris Motor Show; Boca Raton Resort and Club in Florida (November 3 through 7) for the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show; Waldorf Astoria Dubai Palm Jumeirah (November 10 through 19) for the Dubai Motor Festival; Arizona Biltmore, a Waldorf Astoria Resort, (January 14 through 22, 2017) to roll along with Barrett-Jackson’s 46th Annual Scottsdale Auction; and Waldorf Astoria Chicago (February 17, 2017) for the Chicago Auto Show – just to name a few.
Guests will also be able to virtually experience routes from other cities through Gear VR Oculus goggles. They will be digitally transported to Waldorf Astoria destinations, where they will take a driving tour though 3-D video simulation. The 360-videos can also be found on Waldorf Astoria’s Facebook page.
