Introducing the McLaren 720S GT3, the track-only racing supercar available in 2019. McLaren Automotive has confirmed a stellar driver line-up for the competitive debut of the 720S GT3 in the Gulf 12 Hours at Abu Dhabi on December 13-15. Lining up on the grid will be McLaren Automotive Factory Driver Ben Barnicoat (GB), joined by Alvaro Parente (PT) and Shane van Gisbergen (NZ).
The star trio boasts an impeccable pedigree, with Parente and van Gisbergen both holding Platinum status under the FIA driver-rating system – the highest available – and Barnicoat ranked as Gold. With such a strong line-up, the works-entered car – entered under McLaren Customer Racing – is an exciting prospect for the Gulf 12 Hours. Now in its eighth year, the endurance event will see a combined grid of over 30 GT3 and GT4 cars battling for outright honours over a two-part race, each of six hours’ duration, on the 5.554 km Yas Marina circuit – home to the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix.
Congratulations to Lamborghini Beverly Hills’ Edoardo Piscopo and Taylor Proto for their win at Lamborghini Super Trofeo North America Race 1 at WeatherTech Raceway Laguna Seca on Saturday, September 8th.
Last week we hosted a morning brunch in the beautiful new showroom of Bentley Beverly Hills, located at 8423 Wilshire Blvd. Beverly Hills CA 90211 on behalf of the Bentley Bentayga. This brunch was just the beginning of our client’s adventure-filled day. Each client took delivery of a press car the evening before, so they had a little time to familiarize themselves with the luxury SUV because the very next day, they would be given the chance to really push it to the limits!
Spring is finally here, and we decided to take our clients out to The Thermal Club! We had 16 McLaren’s make their way out from the greater Los Angeles area to join us in Thermal, California. The day was warm and overcast; perfect for hitting the pavement.
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 day 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!
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!
