Welcome to the ultimate full-throttle driving fantasy. An adrenaline fueled retreat, where you can live out your land speed dreams in the place where cars have come throughout history to prove their mettle. Miles from civilization, in a lonely stretch of Death Valley, lies an unlikely sight: a sleek contemporary home – all glass, concrete, and metal – and a pair of equally modern 2017 Audi R8 V10 Plus coupes. You might have seen the combo in a TV commercial that ran during the Emmys, a spot that had us asking an obvious question: What are these objects doing together, smack in the middle of nowhere? Audi partnered with Airbnb to offer the home and the cars to seven guests.
You are cordially invited to book a once in a lifetime experience that includes one day of driving – all under the masterful eye of Audi's best driving instructors. This is, quite possibly, the world’s fastest overnight in more ways than one: an Airbnb two night stay powered by the most powerful production model Audi has ever built. With an engine and chassis derived 50% from the R8 LMS racecar, and a powerful 610-hp V10 that has the potential to hit 0-60 in a mere 3.2 seconds, the Audi R8 is one beautiful beast of engineering. And it’s waiting for you on a remote stretch of land near Death Valley, Nevada, miles from anyone or anything. A home with no address, only coordinates on a map.
But that’s not all. That stunning, modern home you see behind the Audi R8 comes with the rental, and you’ll have plenty of downtime at home to relax and take in the epic scenery. Guests will receive the full Audi treatment from VIP transport, meals prepared by your own personal chef, and curated experiences such as stargazing.
