For $140k, Land Rover wants to take we on a world’s many lush highway trip
January 31, 2016 - Picnic Time
Everyone likes a good highway trip. Whether it’s to pierce cranky nation (check), to see a space convey launch (I did a drive, nonetheless a launch was scrubbed), or only to see somewhere new (check, check, check).
A highway outing is an event to see a world, one mile during a time. Most of my highway trips have concerned stops during quaint, though inexpensive, roadside motels opposite a United States and Waffle Houses and each internal quick food corner famous to man.
But we can also go a other way, if your checkbook is low enough. It’s for those special few that Land Rover has partnered adult with British oppulance transport association Abercrombie Kent for what’s being billed as “the many lush highway outing on Earth.” It’s got a oppulance cost tab to match, too: $140,000.
So what do we get for a cost of 7 Volkswagen Golfs? 21 days of extraordinary journey in a top-of-the-line Range Rover in overwhelming luxury.
That’s a same cost as 7 VW Golfs
It starts in Europe, with drives around Monaco and a seashore highway to Portafino, finale adult during a Four Seasons Cap Ferrat on Lake Como. Then there’s a personal incense creation category and a cruise on a glacier in a Alps. You have to take a private helicopter to get there.
Then we fly to Marrakech, Morocco for off-road fun in a dried and mountains, including lunch at Kasbah Tamadot, Richard Branson’s oppulance hotel. Then we fly to a Utah dried and continent series three, staying during the Amangiri resort, cooking underneath a stars, and breakfast in a stunningly beautiful Zion National Park.
But we aren’t finished yet. Next is a moody to Chile, to a Atacama Desert and a stay at Awasi, an impossibly lush review (are we saying a trend yet?). Among a adventures lined adult for Chile is a expostulate to the Alma Observatory, one of a world’s best astronomical telescopes.
Finally, we conduct to Sydney (where a behind-the-scenes debate of a Opera House and VIP overpass stand await) and Tasmania for a expostulate by “the vast, imperishable wilderness.” Don’t worry, another oppulance review awaits, the Safire Freycinet.
And that’s your 21-day epic adventure, pushing Range Rovers on 5 continents. Interested? Reach out to Abercrombie Kent.
And yes, before we indicate it out, for a same income we could only buy a Range Rover. But that wouldn’t be scarcely as good a story, would it?
