At O’Gara La Jolla we’re always trying to find new and innovative ways to grow our brands and connect with the community. Enter local San Diego artist Spencer Couture. Spencers art has an incredible mix of color, texture and pop culture references. As a fan of his work for years, we thought, how could we collaborate with this immensely talented artist. What came next was something even better than what we could have imagined.
With the new Bentley Continental GT on the way later this year, we at O’Gara La Jolla were given the opportunity to showcase the grand tourer to our clients. Most dealers would simply stage the cars in the showroom and do short drives in the surrounding area. We wanted to do something special and decided to aim a little higher. A few hundred feet higher. The Fly and Drive was born.
For the profane, it would appear evident that the more expensive the car, the less maintenance it requires. Luxury brands, after all, are praised for the incredible engineering that goes into designing a supercar, and unsurpassed quality in every detail. Except that the complexity of engines and parts, the high-tech components that set those cars apart, not to mention the thrill-drives they are put through, make them not just expensive, but precious. Which is exactly why owners of Rolls Royce, McLaren, or Lamborghini automobiles know the importance of maintaining a strict checkup schedule, even more so than for an everyday sedan.
Rarely practical. Always a thrill. Owning a Lamborghini puts man among the ranks of esteemed drivers and celebrities, like those of the 1960s who notoriously owned Lamborghini’s flagship model and first supercar, the Miura. While Lamborghini is known for their bold and spectacular styling, there are a few unique reasons why Lamborghini models are a must-have addition to any collection:
From 2014 – 2018, the only two Lamborghini models in production were the Hurácan and Aventador. Until the addition of the Urus SUV in 2018, these two cars were the sole heirs to the Lamborghini dynasty. Today, they still remain the only supercars in production by the manufacturer. Due to their shared heritage in sports car excellence, the vehicles’ stylings are similar and can be difficult to tell apart by the untrained eye – specifically the Hurácan’s Performante edition. Here’s how you can impress your friends and identify a Lamborghini Performante or Aventador when you go car spotting.
Any car that goes from 0-60mph in 3.1 seconds belongs to a special class entirely.
What if we told you that such car can also stop from 62mph in just 105 feet? (basically, 3.3 seconds and 100 feet later, you’re back to a complete stop).
While reminiscent of primary school math problems, these facts are not arcane to sports car enthusiasts. Those in the know – all our readers, we reckon – have recognized some specs of the McLaren 570S.
What’s in a name really? Would you expect 570S to elicit much of a response? You would and you should. With or without the brand name, it’s already become a classic, packing no less than 562 horsepower (570 metric horsepower, hence the name), designed according to McLaren’s highest principles of engineering and performance.
The 2018 Bentley Mulsanne has been sweeping away the awards of countless auto shows this year. After a receiving a facelift and other improvements last year, the 2018 model continues the upgrades in its classic meets modern design that is sure to woo any luxury vehicle owner. If you are looking for a luxury car that is one part ultra-luxury and comfort with some significant power handling beneath the hood, then this year’s Bentley Mulsanne is sure to fulfill that void.
With the 720s, McLaren has created a super sports car, aggressively-styled, and highly-focused on improved drivability. It’s sleek, balanced, powerful. Needless to say, you don’t want to confine that gem to congested freeways and boring straight streets. Of course, if you want to show off a little – who would blame you for being the proud owner of a light yet powerful vehicle – you can slowly go up and down Rodeo Drive.
But our guess is you’d much prefer experience all this exotic car has to offer on an exhilarating drive.
For years O’Gara Coach has provided ultra-luxury vehicles to car enthusiasts around the world. From Bentley to Lamborghini and Rolls-Royce, our O’Gara Co. team never fails to deliver an experience to its customers. Most recently, the O’Gara Coach La Jolla branch has expanded, offering, for the first time ever, McLaren’s performance vehicles to customers in the San Diego area.
Repairs for exotic and luxury cars can be challenging. By carefully selecting the collision center used for repairs after an accident, you can make sure that your vehicle is repaired using the highest quality standards and parts from the original manufacturer. Another point to remember is that high-quality repairs help your car to hold its resale value in the future.
