Waldorf Astoria guests will be given special access to drive on some of the most scenic routes in the country and experience the dramatic, dynamic, and pure performance of Lamborghini’s powerful naturally aspirated V10 engine.
This year’s Waldorf Astoria Driving Experiences, which officially launched in 2014, will offer guests the unique opportunity to test drive Lamborghini’s latest models, including the new Lamborghini Huracán LP 580-2 and Huracán LP 610-4 Spyder, at 7 distinct Waldorf Astoria’s properties worldwide.
Each of Waldorf Astoria Driving Experiences will take place during key events in the respective destinations and kicked off at the Waldorf Astoria Park City, Utah from July 7 – 10 during the 12th Annual Park City Food & Wine Classic.
Customized driving routes allow guests to travel through the most iconic roadways within each destination, highlighting favorite sights and historic landmarks. Each participating property will offer 30-minute sessions each day, led by Lamborghini’s professional driving instructors.
While on-property, guests can also virtually experience routes from other cities through Gear VR Oculus goggles. Guests will be digitally transported to key Waldorf Astoria destinations, including Trianon Palace Versailles outside of Paris where they will be taken on a driving tour of the City of Lights through 3-D video simulation. The immersive 360-videos are also accessible on Waldorf Astoria’s Facebook page (www.facebook.com/WaldorfAstoria) allowing fans to experience 3-D drives in the comfort of their own home.
