Whoa Ride

Hello, Waldorf Astoria Driving Experience, hello

  • 04 September 2014

This correspondent’s childhood road trips were built on a National Lampoon-ish budget of motels and wood-paneled station wagons.

But this correspondent’s adult road trips are slightly sexier.

Introducing the Waldorf Astoria Driving Experience, booking now.

Launching September 30th, the Experience brings a bevy of exotic cars to six Waldorf luxury resorts for your driving pleasure.

Included: a Ferrari 458 Italia Spider, a McLaren MP4-12C and a Porsche 911 Turbo.

You don’t choose your ride—throughout the day, you’ll drive all three.

And that drive: after a briefing by Belgian race car champion Didier Theys, you'll zip along some of America’s most iconic routes. Depending on your starting location, it could be all-natural splendor (Provo Canyon; Big Bear Mountain) or historic cityscapes (New Orleans).

With plenty of long, speedy stretches to test out your transport.

At night, you’ll bunk down in one of Waldorf’s luxury suites — the kind of suites that feature full kitchens, private balconies, big fireplaces and jetted soaking tubs.  

Driving is so tiring.
