This past weekend we took our clients out to The Thermal Club, and this month was our annual O’Gara Experience! We encouraged clients to bring cars from any of our brands and even more to come out for one last d before the desert starts heating up. We had a few McLaren’s, an Aston Martin DB11 and One-77, and quite a few Lamborghini’s including 2 of the new collectors edition Lamborghini Super Trofeo Evo in the Roger Dubuis body wrap!
February was our New Year…
As many of you may have caught on from the internet buzz and our instagram this past show had quite a few new implementations. Many of which were very successful because… The show must go on! This show brought out quite a few beautiful examples of vintage automobiles. For Lamborghini we had a Pebble Beach award winning Miura, and a 350GT. Bentley had an amazing 1939 4.25L VanVooren Pillarless Saloon present, while Aston Martin was represented by a classically stunning DB5. Meanwhile the rest of the show was themed #OGBritishInvasion! Over 200+ cars had registered in advance and of those numbers, we had our biggest turn out for Bentley yet, over 25 Aston Martin’s, and the same for McLaren, over 25 cars! For our first show requiring both registration for owners as well as spectators, we are very appreciative of those who followed the directives and came out!
McLaren owners love their cars. It’s as simple as that. When it comes to the brand that originated from racing, the cars are meant to be on pavement. And this weekend we learned that the canyons of Malibu are just as good of a setting as the track! The drive consisted of rallying to our lunch destination of Nobu with a group of 20 McLarens. There was a fantastic representation of the McLaren model range present, with 2 McLaren P1s, a few 675 LTs, many 570s coupes and spiders, and many 720s! The Nobu parking lot was a car show itself!
One thing that Lamborghini has always held true to in development of their product is that it is “Uniquely Lamborghini.” So let’s talk about the latest race weapon, because here at Lamborghini Beverly Hills we had our first delivery of the Huracan Super Trofeo Evo! One lucky race car driver, had the machine of his dreams handed over to him. This past weekend in collaboration with the family, we orchestrated a surprise delivery! Steven Aghakhani’s is only 14 years old and the first American to take delivery of his Huracan Super Trofeo Evo. He and his team will be hitting the track this spring, and we can’t wait to see the results!
Last weekend the Rolls-Royce Beverly Hills showroom was transformed by the Beverly Hills Chamber of Commerce. The event was put on by the Chamber to celebrate the Lunar Year of the Dog!
Earlier this week we grabbed our helmets and headed to The Thermal Club! With the help of McLaren’s race coach from their PURE McLaren program, we gave our clients a day full of track time, and a new confidence in their cars. For those not familiar with the brand, McLaren is heavily track oriented. The brand started off strictly on the track as a matter of fact! In 1963 Bruce McLaren founded the McLaren group, and in 1968 they had already won their first grand prix; The Belgian Grand Prix. This rich racing history is what inspires us along with our customers to get their cars out on the track!
Last Thursday we spent some time with the British Consulate! They were celebrating their annual #GREATShowcase night, where they brought the greatest of their heritage under one roof. Thank you to Consul General Mike Howells, for hosting the event in his home. A home that provided a perfect backdrop to project the Union Jack. The sponsors included the finest of British Menswear, food, and much more, but there were a few sponsors that caught our eye…
This month, we were able to work with Mayor Lili Bosse, on a project of hers. She is working towards a healthier city with her #BHHealthyCity campaign. A part of this campaign includes taking a walking tour of local businesses every Monday morning. On January 8th, the first walk of the year, we were lucky to have been one of the local businesses on the route!
This past Sunday we took our Performante Owners’ for an exciting drive! We also set what we believe is a record for the United States, 13 Performante’s at one gathering and on one rally. A huge thank you goes out to everyone that spent the day with us here at O’Gara.
To paint a better picture for our readers this is how the day went…
It’s 2018 and we’re ready for a strong year! This past show set a few records that we are aware of. For one, we created the largest Lamborghini Huracan Performante gathering on U.S. soil! So a huge thank you to all of the owners that made their way out Sunday morning. We were able to gather 13 Performante’s for all of you to see at once, in all sorts of colors. We also had the #Purplemante visit from the east coast. For those wondering, Viola Parsifae, is a color from the Lamborghini Ad Personam Program, and quite the show stopper.
