Audi & Airbnb Team Up for Exclusive Desert Adventure

Summer might be coming to an end, but an upcoming Audi adventure will definitely keep the heat going through the autumn months.

Now in its sixth year, Audi will be the Official Automotive Sponsor of the Primetime Emmy Awards. But the luxury automaker is bringing something new with it this year: an exclusive partnership with lodging site Airbnb.

The pair has created the ultimate getaway for Audi enthusiasts. Emmy viewers will have the opportunity to book an exclusive three-day stay at the renowned Rondolino Residence in Beatty, Nevada. It’s so exclusive, in fact,  that it technically doesn’t have an address. “You can only find it via coordinates,” said Audi VP of Marketing Loren Angelo. “It’s actually on a dry lake bed.”

Transportation is typically a source of irritation on vacations. However, the vehicle is the biggest incentive on this escape: an immersive driving experience with the 2017 Audi R8 V10 Plus. The opportunity to hit its top speed—205 MPH—without legal action is not possible in most parts of the world.  A professional instructor will be on hand to help drivers understand every inch of this immaculate sports car.

Audi’s VIP treatment doesn’t stop at the beautiful home and a breathtaking automobile. It also includes chauffeurs, chef-prepared meals, as well as evening entertainment and activities.

The Rondolino residence will be available for booking on Airbnb’s site at 9:00 pm EST. Potential renters will be able to book a three-day stay for one of only seven time slots between October 10th and November 1st. One stay will be released each day from September 18th through September 24th at 9:00 pm EST.

The big announcement will accompany Audi’s latest commercial during the Emmy Awards:

So keep your eyes on the commercials this Sunday.

If a desert test drive seems too hot for you, that’s okay. A cooler option is to stop by our Audi Pittsburgh location, right here in the Steel City. Our Sales Consultants are more than happy to help with anything that you need.
