In this commercial
Advertising agency Venables Bell & Partners created this funny commercial for Audi and Airbnb. The spot promotes Audi R8. The tagline of the advert is “For those who live to drive” and it was filmed in Death Valley, NV.
The house featured in the commercial is available for booking on Airbnb:
Welcome to the ultimate full-throttle driving fantasy. An adrenaline fueled retreat, where you can live out your land speed dreams in the place where cars have come throughout history to prove their mettle – the dry lake beds of the American West.
You are cordially invited to book a once in a lifetime experience that includes one day of driving – all under the masterful eye of some of our best driving instructors.
This is, quite possibly, the world’s fastest overnight in more ways than one: an Airbnb two night stay powered by the most powerful production model Audi has ever built – The Audi R8 V10 plus. With an engine and chassis derived 50% from the R8 LMS racecar, and a powerful 610-hp V10 that has the potential to hit 0-60 in a mere 3.2 seconds, the Audi R8 is one beautiful beast of engineering. And it’s waiting for you on a remote stretch of land near Death Valley, Nevada, miles from anyone or anything. A home with no address only coordinates on a map.
But that’s not all. That stunning, modern home you see behind the Audi R8 comes with the rental, and you’ll have plenty of downtime at home to relax and take in the epic scenery. Guests will receive the full Audi treatment from VIP transport, meals prepared by your own personal chef, and curated experiences such as stargazing.
